In brief: Joint hypermobility

Would see orthopedist or physical medicine physician.
Hypermobility can be from connective tissue elasticity changes such as seen in ehlers danlos disease or acquired joint space problems such as osteoarthritis. A physical evaluation should help you establish the cause of your hypermobility. Suggestions for joint protection through exercise and activity can then be recommended.
