Are joint hypermobility and tendonitis related?

Are joint hypermobility and tendonitis related?

Sort of: There is some evidence that those with hypermobilty are at increased risk of sprains and strains, although there also exists some evidence to the contrary. Pathophysiologically speaking, I am not aware of any studies implicating changes in the structure of tendons among individuals with hypermobility ...Read more

Joint Hypermobility (Definition)

There is a normal range of motion that most joints have as they are moved. Joint hyper mobility describes a range of motion in a particular joint that is more than normal. Hyper mobile joints are at increased risk of subluxations and dislocations. The term ligamentous laxity ...Read more

What is the connection between joint hypermobility and tendonitis?

What is the connection between joint hypermobility and tendonitis?

Overstretching tendo: With increased ability for joints to move more than the normal range, the tendons (muscle to bone connectors) and ligaments (bone to bone connecters) get over stretched causing micro tears and inflammation from the excessive range of motion.
This is the connection between hyper mobility and inflamed tendons. ...Read more

Joint hypermobility cause of tendonitis?

Sometimes: One of the potential causes of tendonitis is overuse by the muscle/tendon unit trying to stabilize a hypermobile joint. This is certainly the case with the posterior tibial tendon in individuals with flexible flatfoot. However, not all tendinitis is related to joint hypermobility, so you would need to consult with your doctor to determine the cause of your tendinitis. ...Read more

Can joint hypermobility be dangerous?

Can joint hypermobility be dangerous?

Probably not.: Isolated joint hypermobility is not dangerous. When part of a syndrome like marfan's syndrome, there may be associated problems that are more serious. Marfan syndrome has a range of expressions, from mild to severe. The most serious complications are defects of the heart valves and aorta. It may also affect the lungs, the eyes, the dural sac surrounding the spinal cord, and the skeleton. ...Read more

What is the condition called joint hypermobility syndrome?

Collagen disorder: Jhs is a constellation of symptoms that are very similar to Marfan's syndrome and erhlers danlos syndrome. It is due to an abnormality of collagen which causes tissues to stretch more than normally. Of course this increases your risk of joint problems, but can also result in heart problems and blood vessel problems. ...Read more

What is joint hypermobility and will getting physiotherapy effectively treat it?

Poorly understood dx: JHS is symptomatic hypermobility. Many individuals who have hypermobility never have pain or require any treatment. When hypermobility is found associated with pain, or a few other criteria (see Brighton criteria) it is termed JHS. It is presumed to be caused by a defect in collagen but rarely have collagen related genes been implicated (TNXB gene). ...Read more

I have joint hypermobility and wanted to know how it links to anxiety? What are the symptoms of anxiety?

There is connection: It is not well understood why there appears both to be more anxiety problems in people with joint hypermobility syndromes (particularly Ehlers-Danlos syndromes), but it appears to be more than just being anxious about a condition that can cause disability and pain. There is a website with information and further literature and resources — http://www.edhs.info/about1-cs05. Good luck!!! ...Read more

Can joint hypermobility syndrome cause referred pain? If so, what is the best way to help with the pain?

Hypermobility: Hypermobility can be assoc. With joint pain esp. if you've dislocated a joint or sustained an injury to the joint. Referred pain means, pain in another area (related) to the primary site often on the same side. It is difficult to be more precise with your question. Look at hypermobility support groups: http://hypermobility.org/ Keep your muscles, tendons strong with appropriate PT. ...Read more

Can driving a car affect my joint hypermobility?

No: Not exactly sure what you're asking, but I am inclined to say no. The mere act of driving would not worsen the condition and should not typically exacerbate symptoms. Unless there is exceedingly prolonged positioning in the car which theoretically could lead to some pain in general. Although I would expect that in anyone, not just those with hypermobility. ...Read more

What can I do about joint hypermobility syndrome?

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

Is blue sclerae associated with benign joint hypermobility syndrome? Thank you.

No: Blue sclerae are typically associated with Osteogenesis imperfecta, not BJHS. There are extremely rare cases of Ehlers-Danlos (dermatosparaxis type and the described spondylocheirodyplastic form) that also are associated with a blue sclerae, as well as a Marfanoid-like condition called Loeys-Dietz syndrome. ...Read more

I have joint hypermobility and often feel the urge to crack them because of pain & pressure. What else can I do to relieve this pain and pressure?

Muscle strengthening: Hypermobility is caused by laxity/looseness of the static stabilizers-- specifically the capsule and static ligaments that make up the surrounding tissue about each joint. They serve as the final backstop to motion in the various planes of motion each joint moves. The dynamic stabilizers of each joint encompass the various muscles that cross over the joints. Strengthening these muscles helps a lot ...Read more

How do you alleviate hip pain in a 15-year old with joint hypermobility?

How do you alleviate hip pain in a 15-year old with joint hypermobility?

Make a diagnosis: For a 15-year old to have hip pain you need a more definitive diagnosis than hyper mobility.
Possibilities include residuals of cdh, slipped capital femoral epiphysis. Mono-articular inflammatory joint disease is a possibility. I would be slow to blame it on "hyper mobility". Consider also labral tear (rare in 15 year old) or impingement (cam lesion) also rare unless very intense dancer. ...Read more

Hip pain in a 15-year old who has joint hypermobility, what can be done?

Rheum and PMR: Hypermobility is usually best treated by an exercise program focusing on improving proprioception, dynamic control of joint movement, and aerobic capacity. There is a very limited role for surgery in most typical cases of hypermobility, especially in adults. A Rheumatologist would be helpful to rule out more worrisome causes of hypermobility and a PM&R doc could assist with symptom management. ...Read more
