Hypermobility Syndrome Symptoms And Treatment

What is hypermobility syndrome?


Hypermobility are your ligaments and tendons too lenient. Therefore your joints do not get enough support.
You do not have any problems with it. Hypermobility is not a disease. For gymnasts and dancers is nimble actually an advantage.

Some people who are hypermobile did receive complaints, as many muscle pain, joint pain and joints regularly shoot out of the bowl. Doctors call this the hypermobility syndrome (HMS).

The exact cause of hyper mobility is not known. Maybe it's hereditary.

To see if you are hypermobile does the doctor a few tests with you. For example, to bend over and put your hands flat on the floor without bending your knees. Your elbows and knees you can trace an end to hypermobility disorder.

The hypermobility syndrome is more common in women than in men.

Hypermobility Syndrome Symptoms And Treatment


Hypermobility syndrome symptoms


The main symptoms of hypermobility syndrome include:
  1. Myalgia.
  2. Joint pain.
  3. Tiredness. The muscles take over the work of the ligaments.
  4. Joints that shoot out of the bowl.
There are also complaints that not everyone has, but which often occur:
  1. Low back pain.
  2. Pain when climbing stairs or other movements that stress the knees and ankles.
  3. Injuries, sprains.
  4. Fluid accumulation in the joints.
  5. Rigid and strained joints.
  6. Awkwardness on the move.
  7. Bruises.
  8. Joints that move around too much in the bowl (for example, the arm or the knee).
  9. Pelvic pain by smooth bands (such as low back pain, pain in the tailbone and pain when standing up).
  10. Pain in the feet, flat feet.
Some people always have pain. The pain is worse during the day and less after halftime. There are also those who only (intense) pain have a joint dislocated shoot or not seated properly, and injuries.

The older you get, the less you probably have the hypermobility. We are all in fact less flexible as we age. For people with hypermobility is an advantage.
Young children with hypermobility have much chance of hip displacement. Often hypermobile children walk later than other children.

What other problems can I get hypermobility?


People with hypermobility have a higher risk of:
  1. Scoliosis (a slight curvature in the spine). Scoliosis gives faster back or neck pain.
  2. Hernia.
  3. Osteoarthritis.
  4. Osteoporosis.
  5. Varicose veins.
  6. Uterine Prolapse.
  7. Rectal Prolapse.
  8. Balance problems (later in life).

Hypermobility syndrome treatment


On the hypermobility syndrome itself is nothing to do. You can try to prevent or reduce symptoms:
  1. Do not try to pull your joints. A physiotherapist, Cesar therapist or Mensendieck therapist can teach you to feel what is the correct position of your joints. There are also tricks. For example, a slightly higher heel prevents overstretching your knees.
  2. Do every day muscle relaxation exercises.
  3. Provide a good condition but not too much strain on your joints.
  4. Sports with lots of fast movements (tennis, boxing, squash, basketball, and skiing) are less than tranquil sports such as swimming and cycling. Your joints are more vulnerable than those of people who are not hyper mobile. With gentle movements prevents sprain your ankles, elbows and shoulders.
  5. Some muscles are able to absorb a part of the work of the ligaments. A physical therapist can help you with exercises that strengthen certain muscle groups. Try not to miss your pelvic floor muscles.
  6. For severe symptoms may help orthotics. These are supporting devices, for example, a wrist corset or a neck collar. But take care not slacken further your joints.
  7. If necessary, use painkillers to support the treatment. Mind you, painkillers only treat the symptoms. When swollen joints help anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).
