The Importance of Physical Therapy

Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome is a condition that causes individuals to have a higher-than-normal heart rate when going from lying down or sitting down to standing up. Your body is unable to find a balance of blood vessel constriction and a heart rate response.  Patients with connective tissue disorders, such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, often are diagnosed with POTS in addition to joint hypermobility.
