In brief: Hard to say
We see locking due to catilage problems, lack of congruity in appositon of the joints (if theyare not fitting together properly)but the cuase of widespread locking is less clear. During your evaluation be certain you are evaluated for hypermobility (increased flexibility).
This could explain locking by lack of congruity.
