Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS) is a condition that features joints that easily move beyond the normal range expected for a particular joint. It tends to be a genetic condition. Symptoms of joint hypermobility syndrome include pain in the knees, fingers, hips, and elbows. Hypermobile joints are sometimes referred to as "loose joints," and those affected are referred to as being "double jointed."
Joint hypermobility can also a feature of a rare, inherited, more significant medical condition called Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, which is characterized by weakness of the connective tissues of the body. Joint hypermobility is commonly seen in people with Down syndrome and in people with Marfan's syndrome. People with JHS often benefit from a combination of controlled exercise and physiotherapy, as well as additional help to manage pain and make everyday tasks easier.
