Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and Social Security Disability


A number of our Social Security Disability clients suffer from the relatively rare Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. This is a disorder of the connective tissue, and it is hereditary. Individuals suffering from this disorder frequently experience the following symptoms:

· loose joints or “double joints,”

· small, fragile blood vessles, and

· abnormal scar formation or wound healing.

The course of prescribed treatment can include physical therapy, medications, and treatment of individual symptoms. There is no cure for the disease.

Please see full blog post for more information.
