Okay, so you can’t really misplace your bones (as in totally lose them inside your body). But you can have them be annoyingly out of alignment. Within the last week, the bones in my wrist have slipped out of place three times!! Grrr. This is incredibly frustrating. Normal people have their joints crack, and it’s no big deal. Even if their joint isn’t in the exactly right position, it’ll just slide back on its own. For people like me with a connective tissue disorder, if a joint gets into a bad position, even if it’s not fully dislocated, it often won’t go back on its own. Which means it’ll be sore, swollen, and unusable until a chiropractor puts it back and it gets to rest for a day or two. So it’s normal for us to always be putting ice on some joint, and going to the chiropractor over and over. Theoretically if one’s muscles got strong enough from physical therapy, this would no longer be a problem. But when your joints are way more flexible than most therapists expect, physical therapy becomes way more complicated than rocket science.
