So what is a hypermobility syndrome?
Sometimes being hypermobile or bendy can cause problems or ‘symptoms’. This is what the word ‘syndrome’ means. Syndrome = ‘other symptoms’
You may get pain in your joints or muscles and feel very tired. Some children have problems like stomach aches, illness feeling sick, dizzy or other symptoms which your parents can read about on the other parts of the website.
Some children only have a small problem with a very bendy joint which is hurting them and making them feel tired. These children may get better once they have had some physiotherapy to make the joint strong again. But some children have what doctors call ‘Joint Hypermobility syndrome’ or other conditions which we call ‘Connective Tissue Disorders’.
Connective Tissue Disorders include Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, buy Marfan syndrome or Osteogenesis Imperfecta. There are other types too.
