Home Based Healing With a Touch of EDS Management
This week the gang have the privilege of speaking with Teague Foreman, a 27-year-old physiotherapist hailing from Woodstock, NB, who has not only dedicated herself to improving the lives of others but also triumphed over her own health challenges. Teague shares her inspiring journey from a childhood filled with sports, including competitive swimming, to becoming a highly educated professional with a Bachelor of Science in Biomechanics and a Master of Science in Physiotherapy. What sets Teague apart is her unique approach to healthcare – she provides physiotherapy services right in the comfort of people’s homes, making a significant impact on their lives. The conversation delves into Teague’s personal battle with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome Classical Type, a condition she underwent a 20+ year diagnostic odyssey to confirm. She sheds light on key clinical presentations that can aid others facing similar challenges and explores the far-reaching implications of genetic confirmation, including the unexpected hurdles she faced in securing health benefits and life insurance.
