    Hi Thomas,

    First of all, wow! This is so generous of you. Also if this isn’t something that can be answered over the forum, I completely understand.

    My question is about getting back to activity after a long lay-off after several semi-severe injuries. I have hypermobility-Ehlers Danlos and haven’t been able to figure out my recovery or push through workouts when my body doesn’t feel great (because it rarely does). Do you happen to know about any resources/experts who specialize in athletes with hEDS?

    Thanks again,

    Hi Kateri,

    Sorry for the late reply. I don’t know of anyone who is specializing in athletes with EDS. But I think a good coach who has some experience about the disease would be a great help for you. With Pete Dickinson we also have a great PT with lot’s of experience. I have some experience with patients… if you are interested into coaching I would recommend to write us an email. Or get a phone consultation with Pete or me. You can also write me at
    Hope that helps?!
