What can I do about joint hypermobility syndrome?

Strong joint muscles: Joint stability is largely derived from the presence of passive stabilizers such as the ligaments and capsule around the joint that limit joint motion in all the possible directions. The dynamic stabilizers are the muscles surrounding each joint that can be helped by making them stronger and more efficient at helping to stabillize the joints in question. Physical therapy helps strengthen muscles. ...Read more
