A message from Dr. Zingman:

I was diagnosed with Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome by Dr. Clair Francomano in 2017 after a decade-long struggle to obtain a diagnosis. By this time, I had multiple disc herniations, had undergone five orthopaedic surgeries, and I could not walk even a few blocks on any hill due to pelvic instability. I was already engaged with physical therapy, acupuncture, Muscle Activation Techniques, and chiropractic care, but I needed a more strategic and comprehensive approach to get better. I looked hard, but could not find anything that did the job.

So, I created home exercise programs for myself, went through elimination diets, and committed myself to learning about Ehlers-Danlos and getting better. Within four months of my diagnosis, I could walk several miles. Dr. Francomano encouraged me then to start a clinic for Ehlers-Danlos patients. My journey has been (and continues to be!) full of peaks and valleys. This is a condition which affects my family and my community, and I don’t want others to undergo the same decade-long, discouraging journey as I went through. I created this practice so that there is a physician available in the community to diagnose Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and teach you to care for your body.
