CINK Study

CINK is a comprehensive neuro-kinetic physiotherapy program that has been shown in case studies to balance nerve impulses reducing spasms and chronic pain in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome patients while improving physical support and stability. The study will test the efficacy of the CINK method on Ehlers-Danlos type 3 patients. Please click here for more information.

Elephant Project Case History Research

My name is Sarah Leach. As I have mentioned to many of you already, I have spoken on two occasions with a Canadian geneticist, Dr. Alasdair Hunter (Ottawa, Ontario), about the fact that more and more people are being diagnosed with Autonomic Dysfunction (POTS, NMH, etc.), some form of Hereditary Disorder of Connective Tissue such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and a Mast Cell Disorder of some kind.

At Dr. Hunter's request, I have agreed to collect case reports from people with the triad of diagnoses/conditions listed above. I have written a suggested format for collecting the information; the italics are intended to be replaced with your information.Click here to download this Microsoft Word template document.

Note: These clinical trials are not endorsed by Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation.
