Silver Ring Splint For Ehler Danlos Syndrome
Ehlers Danlos syndrome (EDS) is an inherited connective tissue disorder with different presentations that have been classified into several primary types. EDS is caused by a defect in the structure, production, or processing of collagen or proteins that interact with collagen, such as mutations in the COL5A or COL3A genes. This is the collagen of granulation tissue, and is produced quickly by young fibroblasts before the tougher type I collagen is synthesized. Commonly associated with keloid formation, Reticular fiber, Also found in artery walls, skin, intestines and the uterus COL3A1. The collagen in connective tissue helps tissues resist deformation.
Collagen is an important contributor to the physical strength of skin, joints, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels and visceral organs; abnormal collagen renders these structures more elastic. In some cases, the severity of the mutation can be life-threatening. There is no cure for EDS, and treatment is supportive, including close monitoring of the digestive, excretory and particularly the cardiovascular systems. Occupational and physical therapy, bracing, and corrective surgery may help with the frequent injuries and pain that tend to develop in certain types of EDS, although extra caution and special practices are advised to prevent permanent damage
Silver Ring splint For Middle Finger
Rings worn on the middle finger are surprisingly uncommon in part, that’s because it’s adjacent to the index finger, and anything bulky can be quite a hindrance to fine manual tasks. It’s best to keep things small and simple if you’re wearing them on your middle finger. That said, a lot of first time ring wearers might feel more comfortable with the middle finger, purely because if feels so central, sturdy, and frankly, manly. If the idea of a pinky ring you out, and you don’t want any confusion with wedding/engagement symbolism, the middle finger’s a safe default. Because of its central location, the middle finger is held to symbolize balance and responsibility, and is associated with Saturn. Since Saturn’s metal is lead, simple gray metals like steel are common middle finger choices.
Silver Ring For Thumb Splint
Thumb rings have a slightly outlandish feel to people who come from conventional North American culture, but they’re actually reasonably common world-wide. In most societies a thumb ring on a man is a sign of wealth or influence, and they tend to be broad or bulky to reflect that (also to fit comfortably on the thumb, of course). A thumb ring is also often the natural choice for men who want to wear multiple rings on the same hand, since it’s at least somewhat distanced from the others. A thumb ring gives everything some space. Thumb gestures are associated with interaction and friendship (think thumbs up). The thumb doesn’t have an astrological association, but in classic mythology (and prescientific medicine) it was believed to be an indicator of character: strong, straight thumbs meant an authoritative personality, while crooked ones were seen as a sign of wickedness or dishonesty.
