Physiotherapy is an important part of managing hypermobility syndromes, but it is easy to assume that it is only for managing acute injuries. The reality is that physiotherapy is an ongoing process which can help to prevent or minimise injury. Finding the right therapist is important, as is keeping up with the exercises at home and not just at your appointments. Try to stay positive about the experience, expecting that at first your symptoms might feel worse, but bear in mind that likely this is due to unfamiliar movements.
So tell us which physiotherapy exercises have helped you and with which aspects of your Hypermobility? You can join in the discussion on Facebook by clicking here
The HMSA is a dynamic charity which provides a network of support groups throughout the UK. All our Group Leaders are trained and have clear DBS’s. The HMSA is proud that our groups are recommended by many hospitals and individual professionals because of our positive ethos and the dedication of our Group Leaders.
We are also looking for more volunteers to run local groups. Even if there is a group running in your area, don’t be afraid to apply. We are looking out for deputy group leaders also.
