Are You Living With Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) And Struggling With Pain?

A Personal Message From Dr. Chris Sovey

Chris S

If You Answered “Yes” To Any Of These Questions, You Are In The Right Place!

It’s common to put off seeking treatment for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome or hypermobility disorders because you think there aren’t many options other than to “live with it”.

We hear this type of thing all the time and you’re not alone in your frustration.

At Healthy Consumer PT, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a common diagnosis that we see patients for every day!
"I found Chris and Healthy Consumer Physical Therapy after doing a google search for physical therapists that are knowledgeable/experienced with treating patients that have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hypermobility type). I have chronic pain in many joints but most severely in my hip. My previous experience with physical therapy left me skeptical that I would ever find benefit in PT. However I was wrong. Chris has been amazing with introducing exercises that I can do without exacerbating the pain, but pushing me enough to achieve the goal of strengthening the muscle around my joints for better stability and less pain. I am encouraged that the tools and knowledge Chris has introduced will allow me to regain some of the physical activity that I have lost due to pain. I absolutely recommend Chris to anyone, but especially those who have hypermobility. Thank you Chris!"

"I highly recommend Healthy Consumer Physical Therapy! I see Chris for my hyper-mobile symptoms. I drive over an hour because Chris is so knowledgeable and informative about Ehlers-danlos and hyper-mobile syndromes. He has given me a wealth of information and resources which have been extremely helpful. I like that he records the exercises so I can remember how to do them correctly at home and shares information via email in between. He also responds to any questions regarding the exercises between sessions as well. He has been very helpful!"

Before Coming Into Healthy Consumer PT, Many Of Our Patients Suffering From EDS Are...


But, The TRUTH Is:

I have an inherited connective tissue disorder that makes my joints loose (ehlers danlos syndrome). Chris looks at the whole picture and has helped me greatly improve my overall joint stability and pain. When problems come up in different joints, he is flexible with adapting my plan of care to meet my new needs.

When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome…

"I have been working with Chris for several years and he has helped me tremendously with hyper mobility issues. Chris is always kind and professional and he does an excellent job creating a personalized program that targets specific problems."

At Healthy Consumer PT We’ve Created A 3 Step Process To Get Rid Of Your EDS Pain AND Make Sure It Stays Away.

Savoy 3Step


Putting Out The Fire

We believe that treatment for your pain associated with Ehlers-Danlos & hypermobility should rarely be painful or uncomfortable.

This is why our first step, before we do anything, is to listen to your story and complete a one-on-one evaluation. That way we get a deep understanding of what’s going on; not just with your body, but also how it’s impacting your life.

We’ll sit down together and prioritize where we can make IMMEDIATE changes to reduce pain or discomfort. After your one-on-one evaluation, we’ll use gentle methods that help soothe your aching joints or muscles.


We Find The Root Cause Of The Pain

Every person’s symptoms of EDS are different. No one has the exact same problem caused by the exact same thing.

Now that you’ve gotten some relief, we can work together to address underlying problems that are keeping you from the activities you love.. This is when we’ll begin to slowly transition into pain-free treatments like gentle strengthening.

Our goal at Healthy Consumer PT is to find the original cause of your pain, so not only does your EDS pain go away, it STAYS AWAY!


Thrive Instead Of Survive

This stage is all about “bullet-proofing” your body. By now you will be feeling healthier and stronger than you have in a long time, so we shift our focus to preventing your pain from returning.

We’ll help you build healthy habits and lifestyle changes so you can live your best life. Patients at this stage find they are often free to focus on their family, friends, and the things they love doing most.

It may be hard to imagine this is even possible given what you’re going through right now, but we’ve helped many people just like you get healthy again without painkillers, injections, or surgery!

Finally Get Rid Of Your Ehlers-Danlos Pain And Keep It From Coming Back!

You don’t have to sacrifice the activities you love over problems that can be fixed.
Let’s chat about how you can feel like yourself again.
