Hypermobility

Physiotherapy can be beneficial in managing pain, but the main focus is on strengthening exercises to help stabilise the affected joints.

Hypermobility Within Joints

Joint hypermobility means some or all of a person’s joints have an unusually large range of movement.

Physiotherapy can be beneficial in managing pain, but the main focus is on strengthening exercises to help stabilise the affected joints. With a specially tailored programme to suite the individual, hypermobility syndrome need not be a source of on-going pain or instability. This is a condition that if highlighted before painful symptoms arise, can benefit greatly from a stability programme and Pilates.

Many people with hypermobile joints have no problems and just find themselves more supple than others. However, for some people these hypermobile joints can cause unpleasant symptoms such as joint pain, back pain, dislocating joints and a tendency for more soft tissue injuries.
