Possibility exists: There exists a group of connective tissue disorders that can be associated with excessive joint laxity and in some cases recurrent dislocations. In its more severe forms other tissues can be affected as well, however these inheritable disorders are rather rare and generally are not identified in most individuals who experience a joint dislocation.
