HOW CAN PHYSICAL THERAPY HELP WITH EDS?

The best medicine for EDS = GUIDED EXERCISE THAT IS RIGHT FOR YOU

Our licensed Physical Therapists are trained to teach you how to exercise safely and effectively while keeping your joints protected. Research has proven that lifestyle changes and careful exercise improves quality of life and function.

Here at Good Health Physical Therapy & Wellness we will teach you the components of an effective program, tailor it to fit your needs and wants. We’ll guide you through joint protection strategies and pacing your activities so that you are independent and successful at taking control of your EDS and your health.

We can design a program that works with pain limitations and other health conditions you may have. We can bill your insurance or offer reasonable cash rates. We are here to partner with you in improving your health. Start today by calling or emailing, and let us take care of the rest. We are here to support your and your goals for good health.  For your convenience and to support you on your wellness journey we listed a few helpful internet links:
