Hypermobile Spectrum disorder, Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes - management across disciplines

Hypermobile Spectrum disorder, Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes - management across disciplines

This seminar series is designed to provide a deeper understanding of the movement and neuromuscular approaches in the evaluation & management of hypermobile spectrum disorders and Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes. Interdependence between the fascial, autonomic, and immune system will be a focus of discussion and practice. Clinical reasoning of the evaluation and management process and its integration with cross-disciplinary procedures will be discussed along with extensive hands-on practice and feedback including diagnosis, pathophysiology, imaging, interventions (manual, motor planning, medical, holistic, neuropsychologic).

Target population: physiotherapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, massage therapist, athletic trainers, occupational therapists, medical doctors, doctors of osteopathy, psychologists

Doctor of Physical Therapy
President/Founder: Movement Links, Inc.

Specializing in the human movement system

Dr. Frank has always been fascinated by movements and capabilities of the human body. She grew up in Malaysia, where she dedicated most of her childhood to playing competitive badminton. Her days were filled with hours of rigorous training and conditioning, all of which prepared her to win numerous state and national competitions. Shortly after representing Malaysia in the International Women’s Uber Cup Championships (equivalent to Davis Cup in tennis), she left to study physiotherapy at Northern Illinois University (NIU), through a sports scholarship. While at NIU, she received All-American honors and the distinguished Broderick Award (now known as Honda Award) in badminton.

Her physiotherapy career began in Los Angeles, where she still continues to practice. As a strong proponent of life-long learning, she pursued an Advanced Master of Science degree in Physical Therapy and Biokinesiology at the University of Southern California and later on, an Advanced Standing doctoral degree in Physical Therapy from Western University of Health Sciences. She has been privileged to study under the tutelage of some of the pioneers in the movement system and functional medicine, namely, Shirley Sahrmann, PT, PhD, Vladimir Janda, MD, Karel Lewit, MD, and Pavel Kolar PT, PhD. Their profound impact on her professional life has inspired her to integrate various rehabilitative and pain science approaches into her current practice, as well as educating and empowering those around her.

She has been given many opportunities to share her area of expertise in the movement system to impact many clinicians both in the U.S. and internationally. She still maintains a limited practice at a clinic in the Los Angeles area (Pasadena) where she provides in-person consultations, when she am not lecturing or mentoring at hospitals, clinics and universities.
