HMSAware 2018

How #HMSAware are you?

It’s easy to forget that while most people with one of the hypermobility syndromes face similar challenges, there are different causes of hypermobility. Some (as pictured) are genetic. Others can be due to skeletal defects (for example, shallow sockets), or acquired following an injury or illness in someone who, though hypermobile has not previously suffered any ill effects.

The HMSA support people (and those caring for, or treating them) with any of the hypermobility syndromes, so whether you have Marfan syndrome, like our Marfan Ambassador, Shona Cobb (you’ll hear from her later),one of the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes, Osteogenesis imperfecta or an as yet unidentified hypermobility condition, we’ve got your back.

This week we’ll be taking a whistle-stop tour through some of the more common ‘hypermobility syndromes’, their individual characteristics and some of the shared symptoms and difficulties we face in the hypermobile community.

Watch this space for more over the coming days, as we add material here on the site and on our social media channels.
