Below is information that I received from the Child Psychologist/Occupational Therapist that my kids see, concerning a current research study on joint hypermobility in children. I was given this flyer and research study information while at my oldest son’s appointment the other day, and I wanted to make sure that I shared it here as well.
EDS Wellness is not involved in this study, nor do I know all of the details. I’m only sharing the opportunity for those who may be interested.
