  Title Benign joint hypermobility — developing clinical significance
Journal J Clin Chiropr Pediatr. 2018 Jul;17(2):Online access only p 1431-1440
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

The aim of this paper is to examine the clinical significance of joint hypermobility, and to suggest some diagnostic and management protocols which might be used in a chiropractic practice. Joint hypermobility is a largely unrecognized condition that is little understood, little talked about and often misdiagnosed. Clinicians may encounter patients with joint hypermobility but fail to appreciate the significance in terms of overall morbidity. The clinical significance of joint hypermobility is examined from many aspects. Considerations include the effect of joint hypermobility on
different body structures as well as during pregnancy, on newborn, school-aged and adolescent conditions and the effect of different sports on the hypermobile child. Finally, the effects of joint hypermobility on spinal adjusting, and the modifications thereof, are discussed.
