EDS & Hypermobility

If you have received an EDS diagnosis, think you may have EDS or have unexplained symptoms and are trying to work out what’s going on, you’re in the right place. You need to work at your own pace which is why there are a range of ways for you to work with me.

The Zebra Club APP

Hypermobility safe, affordable and effective movement, education and community in the comfort of your own home.

This is the first program that has actually helped. I’ve been doing it consistently for about 6 weeks and I feel stronger, more in tune with my body and have fewer subluxations which I didn’t think was possible.

You may not have hypermobility but still have back pain. I trained as a back pain specialist in 2009 and over the years I have worked with many back pain patients who do not have hypermobility. You can have back pain for any number of reasons and my Integrated Movement Method (IMM) can help you too. This course is designed for you whatever your level of pain. My IMM uses a combination of movement therapy and neuroscience to encourage relaxation and softness before moving onto strengthening. I’ve seen it work for the clients and patients who have either worked with me in person or online. It can work for you.

When traditional Physical Therapy and pain management treatments were not working for my chronic back pain, I was fearful (and skeptical) about trying an online movement program. Not only has Moovlite helped me to better manage my chronic pain, it has taught me how to safely start moving again and given me the confidence to get back to activities I had been avoiding!

Managing your pain starts with learning what works for you, your body and your lifestyle. That’s why my blog is about more than techniques for managing pain. Here you’ll also find strategies for coping with the emotional and social aspects too.

Understanding Hypermobility Foot Mechanics and Pain Management

Understanding Hypermobility Foot Mechanics and Pain Management

I always start at the feet.

The foot needs to be stable and mobile at the same time for good foot mechanics. It is super important to understand the relationship between the foot and the rest of the body. The foot will impact the knee, hip, lower back, and upwards from there. Even asymptomatic hypermobile feet and ankles can contribute to pain all the way up the body (1).

What is coat hanger pain?

Coat hanger pain is a pain in the neck and upper back, specifically the suboccipital and paracervical regions. It has been described as a “charley horse” kind of sensation in the back of the neck and shoulders. This pattern mimics the shape of a coat hanger with the hook in the neck and the body spreading out across the upper trapezius muscles and shoulders.
