Hypermobility syndrome is a condition that affects the collagen within an individuals body. Those diagnosed with the condition are rated on a Beighton scale of 1 to 9 based upon the severity of their joint elasticity. Those affected by the condition have a degree of contortionism within their joints with the primary areas of flexibility being seen within the fingers, wrists, elbows, knees, hips and ankles. The condition typically presents itself during puberty and is most prevalent in females.
Due to the increased flexibility of the joint muscles individuals with this condition are more likely to suffer from breaks and sprains than others. The affect of this condition on daily living is unique to each individual. As this condition manifests itself within puberty most individuals learn to adapt their lives and daily activities at a young age. Some individuals can have the highest severity of the condition (a score of 9) and experience little to no discomfort, whilst others with a lower scale may have excessive pain in the joints that are affected.
