Joint Hypermobility

Joint hypermobility (excessive joint movement) is quite common. Those that have hypermobile joints are not necessarily impacted by it although when it does impact a person it can do so in a number of ways such as:

  • Chronic pain
  • Gross motor delay or difficulties
  • Fine motor delay or difficulties
  • Poor balance
  • Poor co-ordination
  • Poor posture
  • Frequent muscle or joint injuries
  • Recurrent joint dislocations
  • Poor endurance and fatigue with physical activity
  • Increased incidence of “growing pains” and general aches and pains
