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 http://www.medal.org/docs_ch20/doc_ch20.28.html for a diagnosis of Hypermobility Syndrome they usually use the following criteria found at
http://www.hypermobility.org/diagnosis.shtml
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.
