May: Ehlers Danlos Awareness Month
Ehlers Danlos: Self Management
EDS/HSD has no cure and there is no such thing as a magic pill. However, you can learn to control and self manage your condition, so that you can live and enjoy your life.
Broadly speaking, day-to-day management is achieved by the incorporation of:
Strength training exercise, such as Pilates is highly recommended by EDS specialists… as it allows you to strengthen the muscles without impact to the joints.
Start with a very small exercise routine, and slowly build from there.
Finding an exercise specialist with EDS/HSD knowledge is also key.
Seek referrals for associated conditions.

Tanya is the founder of Intensys Life. Some years ago now, Tanya was recommended Pilates to help manage her newly diagnosed hypermobility condition. It turned her life around, taking her from a very poorly place, in constant agonising pain, to now being able to live life to the full… all thanks to Pilates. Amazed by her own progress, it is no wonder that Tanya is committed to helping others by sharing the wonders of Pilates.
