Dr. Brianne Schroeder is originally from upstate NY where she graduated from New York Chiropractic College in 2018 with a doctorate degree in Chiropractic as well as a Master's degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition.
Dr. Schroeder is trained in Webster technique (pregnancy), certified in acupuncture, and is one of the leading practitioners performing ARPneuro therapy for pain and injuries.
Growing up with a connective tissue disorder herself, Dr. Schroeder has walked the same path that many of her patients have when it comes to medical experiences and struggling to be properly diagnosed. In fact, it wasn’t until her third year in chiropractic college that she was diagnosed.
Ever since she has been on a journey to educate her patients and the greater medical community about hypermobility spectrum disorders and Ehler’s Danlos syndrome.
Hypermobility and Chiropractic Clinic was created so that she could spend time getting to know her patients, without the restraint of insurance companies or upper management dictating care.
Although connective tissue disorders are her specialty, Dr. Schroeder enjoys taking care of the members of her community, hypermobile or not. She even offers virtual appointments to accommodate those who live out of the area or those who may have disabilities/transportation issues that make it difficult for them to get to the office.
Dr. Schroeders treatment style involves a light force, gentle technique (utilizing manual & instrument assisted adjustments, as well as a drop table), addressing symptoms from all angles, and tying all aspects of health together for best results.
Dr. Schroeder loves to continue learning and is currently being certified in Integral Movement Method (IMM)--a safe and effective exercise program that she can’t wait to share with her patients!
Specialty areas of focus include:
Since being diagnosed with Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder herself back in graduate school, Dr. Schroeder has dedicated her career to studying hypermobility and helping those who have, or think they may have it. Personal experience has given Dr. Schroeder the gift of truly understanding the condition, as well as the toll it takes on the body, both physically and mentally. She created this clinic as a safe space for patients to be heard and strives to be a resource for patients, caregivers, and other health care, practitioners.
Hypermobility means your joints can move beyond the normal range of motion. You may also hear the term double-jointed. This means your joints are very flexible. The most commonly affected joints are your elbows, wrists, fingers, and knees. In most people, hypermobility doesn't cause any pain or medical issues
Joint hypermobility syndrome is a connective tissue disorder. Thick bands of tissue (ligaments) hold your joints together and keep them from moving too much or too far out of range. In people with joint hypermobility syndrome, those ligaments are loose or weak. If you have joints that are more flexible than normal and it causes you pain, you may have joint hypermobility syndrome.
Joint hypermobility is very common. Hypermobility means your joints can move beyond the normal range of motion. You may also hear the term double-jointed. This means your joints are very flexible. The most commonly affected joints are your elbows, wrists, fingers, and knees.
In most people, hypermobility doesn’t cause any pain or medical issues. However, for some people, hypermobility causes joint-pain, joint and ligament injuries, tiredness (fatigue), bowel issues, and other symptoms. Joint hypermobility syndrome is most common in children and young people. It affects people assigned female at birth (AFAB) and people of Asian and Afro-Caribbean descent more often. It usually gets better with age.
Joint hypermobility syndrome can be a sign of a more serious underlying genetic condition. These conditions are called Heritable Disorders of Connective Tissue (HDCT). Rare medical conditions associated with joint hypermobility syndrome include:
The most common symptom of joint hypermobility syndrome is a pain in your joints and muscles. Other symptoms may include:
The exact cause of joint hypermobility syndrome isn’t known. However, the disorder tends to run in families. The genes that are involved in the creation of collagen are believed to play a role. Collagen is the protein that adds flexibility and strength to your joints, ligaments, and tendons. People with joint hypermobility syndrome have loose joints because they have weak ligaments. They have weak ligaments because of the defect in their collagen.
