How to Help the Hypermobile Body
“Experts estimate that up to 10% of the general population may have some degree of hypermobility. Most hypermobile people do not develop any problems from their loose joints, but some suffer chronic pain and other symptoms.” (A. Pocinki, MD, Joint Hypermobility and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, 2010)
In this course, we start by investigating what hypermobility is, its causes and who is affected. We also review clinical assessments used to determine joint hypermobility, joint hypermobility syndrome and more. We then turn to the symptoms and the dos and don’ts of helping someone manage the condition with safe and effective physical conditioning best practices.
