DEAR ERI COMMUNITY: I am a physical therapist in Austin, TX, and I have a patient who is 3 years old who has been diagnosed with an unspecified connective tissue disorder. His mother was asking me if I thought massage would be helpful for his muscle cramps and pain. I found a few articles that support the use of pediatric massage in children with special needs as well as an article speaking to the benefits of use in children with Ehlers-Danlos, as long as caution is taken not to overstretch muscles across joints with hyperlaxity. However, I am having trouble finding a qualified practitioner. Does anyone know of a pediatric massage therapist in the Austin area?
