Saturday, August 4, 2018 - 4:13 pm

POTSDAM -- Canton-Potsdam Hospital’s Fibromyalgia Support Group will meet Tuesday, Aug. 7, from 6:30-7:30 p.m., 59 Main Street, Clarkson Hall.

The topic of the meeting will be “An Update on EDS/HSD,” with facilitator Dr. Leslie Russek, PT, DPT, PhD, OCS.

“hEDS (hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome) and HSD (Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder) affect many people with fibromyalgia, but is often undiagnosed. Having just returned from presenting at the 2018 Ehlers-Danlos Society Global Learning Conference, I will be sharing the most current information,” said Dr. Russek. “If we can identify hEDS/HSD we can better manage, and often lessen, pain.”

Dr. Russek specializes in chronic pain management at Canton-Potsdam Hospital and is an associate professor in Clarkson University’s Physical Therapy Department.
