  1. Hey! I am so glad to find your blog again. For some reason I couldn’t find it for a while– I’m not sure if I forgot to “Follow” it way back when or what, but I’m so glad to find it again now!

    I just linked to you from this post where I mentioned connective tissue disorders– hopefully I explained them correctly! https://sijointsaga.com/2017/02/13/si-joint-concepts-form-closure-vs-force-closure/ I think your blog is a really great resource so I’m going to keep recommending people check it out!

    1. Hey, thank you so much for recommending my blog! ๐Ÿ˜€ Were you trying to find a specific page on my blog? I reset a couple of old pages to private because I wanted to take some time to update them now that I’ve had a chance to learn more about connective tissue disorders. I guess next time I do that I should let people know so they aren’t confused! But I do intend to make them public again soon.

      Yes, your explanation is correct, although I think maybe you didn’t link to the site you intended to with the link on the words Marfan Syndrome? Right now it’s linking to a post on SI joint surgery.

      Also I wanted to say I really enjoyed your recent post explaining the scientific article about central sensitization. It is really helpful to have things like that explained in ordinary language!

      1. For some reason I couldn’t find your blog at all– I could see your Gravatar profile, but I couldn’t find a link to your blog from it. (I’m sure didn’t help that I thought the name of your blog was Jello-like joints, haha). I’m glad to see you back on here!

        Oops, that was definitely a mistake with the Marfan link– just fixed it ๐Ÿ™‚

        And thank you so much — I’m so glad you liked the CS article. I was really hoping people would appreciate the ordinary language, so I appreciate the feedback!
