Hypermobility is complex, but support and management can transform your health and functioning.

Overview

Joint hypermobility is a condition where the joints move beyond the normal range, with little effort. It's often due to variations in collagen, a protein essential for maintaining the strength and elasticity of skin, ligaments, and tendons.

Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome is a group of inherited disorders on the hypermobile spectrum, affecting connective tissue, primarily the skin, joints, and walls of blood vessels.

Types of EDS
Hypermobility: The most common form, marked by joint hypermobility and often chronic joint pain.
Classical: Characterized by highly elastic, fragile skin, and widespread scarring.
Vascular: A more severe form, affecting blood vessels and internal organs, potentially leading to life-threatening complications.

Recognizing Symptoms of Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome

EDS can significantly affect daily activities, leading to challenges in mobility, frequent injuries, and psychological stress. Key signs of hypermobility spectrum disorders include:

  • Joint pain and stiffness, particularly after overuse, and chronic muscle pain.
  • Frequent joint dislocations or sprains due to extremely flexible joints.
  • Increased bruising and soft, stretchy skin that is easily damaged.
  • Chronic fatigue, a common symptom in both conditions.
  • Digestive and cardiovascular complications, more prevalent in severe types of EDS.

Understanding its impact is vital for compassionate care and effective management.

Understanding Causes and Risks

EDS is primarily caused by genetic mutations affecting collagen synthesis and processing. Family history, specific genetic markers, and comorbid conditions like hypermobility spectrum disorders are notable risk factors.
