Hypermobility belong to a spectrum of conditions that affect your connective tissue where you can 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. For children see Hypermobility in children page for more information.
However, some people with hypermobility can suffer from pain and stiffness or recurring sprains, tiredness among many other symptoms and conditions.
