Hypermobility and How to Manage It

Hypermobility and How to Manage It.

Hypermobility and How to Manage ItDo you have extra bendy fingers or joints that can stretch much further than other people’s? Perhaps you can bend over and place your hands flat on the floor with ease, while those around you struggle to get their fingertips to the floor. Maybe you’ve been told you’re double jointed, or you have a predisposition to sprains and strains. If so, you could well be hypermobile, which means your joints are more flexible than normal and you have weaker ligaments. The degree to which hypermobility affects your life will depend on its severity; some people are barely affected at all, while others find there is a significant impact on their quality of life.

A Fresh Look at Stem Cell TherapyWhat are stem cells?

These cells are one of the essential building blocks of life. They have the unique ability to grow into a variety of other specialized cells, forming brain, muscle, and internal organ tissues during the development of a fetus in the womb. Following conception,  stem cells either remain as stem cells or transform into the types of cells the body needs to grow. In some parts of the body such as the bone marrow, stem cells continue to replenish the tissues throughout the lifespan, while in others such as the liver, they will only reproduce under specific circumstances.
