In brief: Not really

People who have joint flexibility usually feel best when they are relatively strong.
People like you usually complain of shoulder pain and sometimes hip pain. By strengthening the muscles around these joints, the patients seem to feel better.

In brief: No

Being "double jointed" is not a condition that requires treatment unless you have a joint that is painful, swollen or dysfunctional.
Discuss with an orthopedic specialist or other qualified health care provider.
