Hypermobility in Adults and Children

Hypermobility belong to a spectrum of conditions that affect your connective tissue, allowing you to move your joints beyond a normal range of movement. People with hypermobility can often move their limbs into positions others would find very difficult.

The condition is common in children and may not cause any problems or need any treatment. In fact, in some people such as athletes, dancers or gymnasts, hypermobility might be considered an advantage because it gives an extra range of movement.

However, hypermobility can produce such symptoms as pain, stiffness, swelling or dislocations, which may cause concern and you may want the condition to be assessed by an experienced podiatrist.

Rachel Miller is a highly experienced podiatrist who sees many patients who have hypermobility. Please see below if you want more detailed explanation of hypermobility and its management.
