We all know of people in our lives who are “double jointed”. It’s a fun party trick for school aged kids, being able to bend arms and fingers in an unnatural way.

Hypermobility Hypermobility is often a genetic issue within the collagen of the connective tissue, otherwise known as fascia. The [...]

The body is really a phenomenal system that has the unique ability to completely rebuild our tissues when we get injured, biologically stitching our wounds back together. It’s quite amazing! The special cells that lay down the collagen to create a scar do a fantastic job of closing the body off from the unforgiving world. The problem is that the collagen fibers don’t get laid down in a very organized fashion (think of a string of Christmas lights that mysteriously [...]

Dizziness and Imbalance is a sensation that we have all probably experienced at some point in our lifetime. However, when dizziness is no longer a transient feeling after a carnival ride and it impacts our ability to perform normal day to day things like driving, laying in bed, and walking in a grocery store, then it becomes a huge burden.
