In brief: Yes
Generally, these are wonderful gymnasts, ballerinas and people who easily dislocate their joints to perform some pretty amazing feats, such as escaping from a strait jacket.
However, the price is very high for those who use their flexibilty. They have to retire early from the severe form of premature osteoarthritis that they develop.
