In this syndrome the physiotherapist main role is : 1. Stabilizing weak joints by strengthening muscles and activating proprioreceptors at the joint. 2. Maintain the girth of muscles and improve coordinated movt at the joint by allowing agonist-antgonist muscles' controlled contractions. 3. Splint and braces are used for supporting the weak structures

Ehlers-Danlos syndrome is a group of disorders that affect connective tissues supporting the skin, bones, blood vessels, and many other organs and tissues. Defects in connective tissues cause the signs and symptoms of these conditions, which range from mildly loose joints to life-threatening complications. There are several types of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, but all make your joints loose and weak and your skin unusually stretchy. . Ehlers-Danlos can affect your skin, joints, and blood vessel walls; the syndrome is characterized by extremely flexible joints and very stretchy, fragile skin.
