Hypermobility and How to Manage It.
Do you have extra bendy fingers or joints that can stretch much further than other people’s? Perhaps you can bend over and place your hands flat on the floor with ease, while those around you struggle to get their fingertips to the floor. Maybe you’ve been told you’re double jointed, or you have a predisposition to sprains and strains. If so, you could well be hypermobile, which means your joints are more flexible than normal and you have weaker ligaments. The degree to which hypermobility affects your life will depend on its severity; some people are barely affected at all, while others find there is a significant impact on their quality of life.
