Hypermobility - Definition


Definition


Hypermobility defines an unusual level of flexibility of the joints, skin, or muscles. The most common cases of hypermobility involve the flexibility of the ligaments, with a large proportion reported to be Down's syndrome sufferers. When this condition involves the joints, it can be the cause of tendinitis or dislocation. In cases of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hypermobility is hereditary and primarily concerns joints and connective skin tissue.
