Patellofemoral pain syndrome
March 7, 2018
I'm busy working on my blog posts. Watch this space!
Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder is a term used to describe overly mobile joints which occurs as a result of the protein collagen being more flexible than usual. Hypermobility severity varies. Very severe cases like Ehlers Danlos Syndrome and Marfans Syndrome come with serious complications. However, most people with hypermobile joints do not have any problems. In fact, joint hypermobility can be an advantage in certain sports like athletics, dancing and gymnastics.
Having excessive movement in your joints means that they can more easily twist or overstretch, which may cause unwanted symptoms listed below:
*soft tissue injuries
*muscle and joint aches and pains
How can Physiotherapy help?
Symptoms associated with hypermobility syndrome can be improved by proper advice and management. Your Physiotherapist will be able to:
*provide appropriate exercise programme to increase muscle strength, improve your balance and coordination and improve core stability
*provide appropriate stretches for tight muscles
*advice on posture
advice on appropriate exercise and sports
*provide referral to a specialist if needed, like Occupational Therapist or Podiatrist
*advice on pain management and how to reduce factors that may worsen your symptoms.
