I now have sciatica which is improved a little bit with stretching exercises. Saw a PT today who rolled his eyes when I said I have hypermobility. He told me I needed to work on my core and lifting weights until I can’t lift that weight anymore. And gave me a lecture on how I needed more protein in my diet because I’m a vegetarian. I canceled the next appointment and found a physical therapist from the EDS website hopefully it’s worth the extra drive! Why don’t more Physical Therapists in the US know about hypermobility?!
