What is hypermobility?

Hypermobility is a connective tissue disorder resulting in laxity/increased range of movement in multiple joints. 

Having excessive range of movement can lead to extra strain on the joints, ligaments and muscles and even subluxation or dislocation of joints.

This can lead to pain and in the long-term osteoarthritis can develop. 

Physiotherapy can help people with hypermobility by strengthening the muscles around joints to provide more support, helping to reduce pain.

Aquatic therapy (also known as hydrotherapy) is one effective form of exercise that can help to promote increased joint stability and allow muscles to be strengthened in a controlled and comfortable environment.
