FOR STARTERS AND PERHAPS THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT YOUR MOTHER IS ALWAYS RIGHT. Listen to her when she tells you to wear your brace or whatever it is for that matter.   I will never forget the day I was told I had to wear a brace. It was a horrible hot heavy piece of plastic.

“Hypermobility,” is a term we like to throw around in all types of ways.
