Just orthopedic or rheumatologist answer some hypermobile joints from ballet, gymnastics. Can these loose joints make the normal joints loose?

In brief: Loose joints

Indirectly, you are putting additional stresses on muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints above a loose joint.
If well-trained, you can accommodate for these weaknesses.

I suggest the questioner study the Brighton criteria for Joint Hypermobility Syndrome.

In brief: Not really

Genetic predisposition , activities and injuries can lead to hypermobility of a joint .
A a loose joint above or below a normal joint will protect it from being over stressed at time and if any thing would prevent it from becoming hyper mobile.
