Ehlers Danlos Syndromes Treatment
Whilst there is no cure for Ehlers Danlos syndromes (EDS), the goal of treatment is for symptom control. This mainly includes physiotherapy to develop muscle strength and balance.
Pain management in EDS is poorly understood, however most people get benefit from regular pain killers such as anti-inflammatory medications. Other medications such as opioids (e.g. codeine, tramadol and morphine) may be used in conjunction to control severe pain.
Medicinal cannabis can be considered when first line therapies have not achieved adequate pain control.
