Did I catch your hypermobile bug?
« on: February 05, 2003, 07:06:09 AM »
I have been meaning to share with you people here a comment my PT made. He said I am the most mobile person he has seen that has had this surgery done. I often wow them with some new way to use the exercise machine they have never seen before. So I'm thinking.... could I have lax ligaments or something?? I have had 2 torn ACLs, stretched and torn MCL, and patella dislocated and subluxed, Theresa
L ACL Recon. L lat. meniscus tear 1991, R Dislocated 1996, R ACL partial tear, MCL tear 08/01, R Chondroplasty 2/14/02, R Lateral Release-Medial Reefing-Chondroplasty 12/3/02.

To be technically classed as Hypermobile you need to
meet a score in one of the designated measurement systems the main one used these days seems to be the Beighton score  and the criteria for this can be found at for a diagnosis of Hypermobility Syndrome they usually use the following criteria found at
You can also suffer from just large joint or just small joint hypermobility ir from hypermobility in just one joint or only a couple of joints.
