Hypermobility – Ligamentous Laxity

Hypermobility, also known as ligamentous laxity, is a condition where joints have an unusually large range of movement, often leading to pain and discomfort. This can be due to overly flexible ligaments that are unable to provide adequate support for the joints.

While some people may refer to this as being “double-jointed”, it can lead to complications such as generalized instability, difficulty in walking, and even severe pain.

At Sydney Sports Podiatry, we offer comprehensive consultations and treatment plans for individuals experiencing hypermobility or ligamentous laxity. Our team of experts can help manage your symptoms, improve your joint stability, and enhance your overall quality of life.

Probably the number one reason why we see patients with foot, shin, leg or knee pain, and it’s responsible for most people’s “FLAT FEET”. Hypermobility due to ligamentous laxity is extremely common. Again, Andrew has lectured extensively on this topic to post-graduate podiatrists for many years. There is a lot more to this treatment than just the orthotics we see provided to many patients.

Over time, Ligamentous laxity, also known as hypermobility can also contribute to the development of conditions such as flat feet and scoliosis, and may impact an individual’s quality of life by limiting their ability to participate in certain physical activities.

Therefore, it’s crucial to manage this condition effectively to prevent further complications and maintain overall health and well-being.
