It is common for one to think that it can never be a bad thing to be too flexible. This theory seems to be wrong because lax ligaments are loose ligaments that cause chronic body pain and can occur anywhere in the body. At Connetquot Chiropractic in Ronkonkoma, NY, Dr. Lambert can help diagnose and treat your ligament laxity.

We’ve all heard the term “double jointed”, but when it comes to lax ligaments causing chronic pain, this syndrome becomes much more than a quirk you would show off at a party. According to Dr. Lambert in Ronkonkoma, the joints that are most commonly hypermobile are:

  • Knees

  • Fingers

  • Elbows

  • Wrists

  • Shoulders

Children are most commonly affected by lax ligaments because their connective tissues have not finished developing. In Ronkonkoma, we know that children often grow out of this syndrome as those tissues develop and the muscles around their joints strengthen. Some other causes of lax ligaments include the following:

  • Heredity

  • Injury

  • Joint socket depth

  • Poor perception of how deep you are stretching

  • Muscle structure

  • Bone structure​


Ligament Laxity can change a standard medical diagnosis. It is uncommon, but possible, that your ligament laxity is being caused by other syndromes such as Down Syndrome, Marfan Syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, Morquio Syndrome, or Cleidocranial Dysostosis. In Ronkonkoma, Dr. Lambert can give you the correct diagnosis you’ve been looking for.

Now that you know what lax ligaments are, how do you know if it’s time to make an appointment with us in Ronkonkoma?
