HMSA Press Release

The Charity Commission approves a change to the name of the HMSA, now the Hypermobility Syndromes Association.

Dr Hakim, Chief Medical Advisor, said on behalf of the Charity’s Trustees:

Hypermobility and the problems related to it can affect many people in a number of different ways. It is associated with several conditions including the Joint Hypermobility syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, and Marfan syndrome.

Although there are important and very specific differences between these conditions, in many respects the advice and treatments needed are similar. Recognizing this, our change in title reflects the HMSA’s aim of supporting all those with any hypermobility-related condition.
