EDS (Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) - @kellyrobertswellness

Posted by on

“I got my A.W.A.R.E. necklace because I was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS) when I was pregnant with my third child a little over 5 years ago. Ehlers Danlos Syndrome is a group of disorders that affect connective tissues supporting the skin, bones, blood vessels, and many other organs and tissues. This results in everything from dislocations to torn ligaments and hyper mobility in the joints to life threatening complications. I've had my share of pain and injuries, from knee surgery to chronic neck and back pain and degenerative disk disease to severe and serious complications during child birth. Early on, I found that Pilates has managed my pain, injuries and symptoms of EDS. It became my daily rehabilitation and has allowed me to prevent future injuries, heal faster and it has also been my career for over 14 years. I own my own studio and I have an online membership where I teach men and women how lose weight, eat better, recover from injury and disease, maintain a healthy lifestyle , and build their Pilates practice. A lot of my clients suffer from Ehlers Danlos Syndrome just like I do. I love that I get to help them bring awareness to their body and help them learn how they can continue to maintain a wellness lifestyle that works best for them. In honor of today being the last day of #edsawarenessmonth I'm showing my zebra stripes and raising awareness for EDS and letting the community know there is hope that we can live more freely and hopefully with less daily pain.” @kellyrobertswellness
