Okay. I am guessing that when the guy at the orthotics bracing specialists reacts with looks of mixed horror and intrigue, and my Physical Therapist today reacted with a startled jump and immediate order for her student that was shadowing to come look quick. And then the student had a similar, but slightly more dramatic reaction, as the PT, there must be something not right about the movement of my right shoulder.
I can’t tell what it’s doing that’s causing everyone to react. I just know it hasn’t been quite right since I got injured trying to use the walker like my surgeon wanted so I’ve been staying in the wheelchair until PT started (which was today),
The most the PT could get out in between looks of intrigue and shock, and quick comments to her student to take note of the traits of an EDSer, were short phrases of “that’s too low!” (and that was said usually when I was just resting it) and “wow that’s way too hypermobile” and “can you see how far it’s moving?!?”
I need to find a way to brace the troublesome thing up without having to lose mobility as I kind of need it for my PT sessions and driving. The problem is that both the orthotics guy and the PT want it stabilized too, but admitted they don’t know how to do it. This EDS stuff never ceases to be an adventure. lol
