Hypermobility Syndrome India

Joint hypermobility (JHM), or the movement of certain joints beyond their normal range of movement occurs due to excess laxity of the ligaments that bind a bone to another bone in a joint. Such hyperlaxity of ligaments may arise from a variety of underlying causes and may be associated with many syndromes or disorders. Joint hypermobility is not uncommon, but often missed in clinical examinations.

Joint hypermobility by itself is not a disease and in most people does not cause any symptoms. It may be associated with focal, regional or widespread mechanical injury. It may also be advantageous to professionals like ballet dancers. However, the finding of JHM is an important sign that can guide one’s suspicion to the presence of a hereditary disorder of connective tissue.
