What can I do to prevent hyperextension of my knees and elbows?

In brief: Ligamentous laxity

Is a common congenital condition that permits one to hyperextend joints and makes one "double-jointed".
There is no need to worry about that when it occurs naturally. However, traumatic hyperextension injury is quite injurious. A knee brace when highly active or elbow protector can help.
