Headache-Fatigue-Dizziness-GI Complaints: All Connected Through the Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder, or Ehlers-Danlos

Patients with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder often have headaches, sleep disorders causing fatigue, dizziness with "POTS" and blood pressure regulation, and gastrointestinal complaints.  They also have sweating abnormalities, Raynaud's syndrome, joint pain, and neck and low back pain with pinched nerves.  They are often athletes, gymnasts, and cheerleaders.  Sometimes they are "double jointed" and have stretchy skin and autoimmune disorders like Hashimoto's thyroiditis.


What is coordinated care?

It takes a team to treat neurology patients. Do you want your team to talk to one another, or would you rather have them faxing memos back and forth all over the region or have them locked into one particular hospital system ?

  • No "blind spots" – Team approach lets caregivers sub-specialize, providing a true expert in every disease area.
  • Do tests right, the first time – We optimize our own equipment to answer neurologic questions, including MRI and x-ray imaging, EEG, EMG, and sleep lab. One size doesn't fit all.
  • Caregivers who live and breathe neurology – Physical therapists and nurses who care only for neurology patients, five days a week. Nurses who care only for MS patients.
  • State-of-the-art electronic medical records allow patients to see their own test results online, High Level PACS for image sharing and review, and digital communication with referring physicians, all help provide seamless and rapid communication with all caregivers, and help us to research previously unknown connections between neurological disorders.
