What is Ligament Laxity?

Ligament laxity, also known as ligamentous laxity, loose joints, double-jointedness, hypermobility syndrome, and joint laxity, is a loose ligament that leads to chronic body pains. People with ligament laxity can extend their joints easily beyond the normal range of motion. Sometimes, weak muscles around the joint can also contribute to joint hypermobility. If you’re in search of ligament laxity analysis in Suffolk County, Connetquot Chiropractic can help you!

Some common joints that are affected by ligament laxity are:

- Shoulders

- Knees

- Wrists

- Elbows

- Fingers

Ligament laxity is more common in children, as the tissues that connect them are not developed fully. As they grow up, the laxity of the joints and the ability to hyperextend decreases.

For people who fancy the idea of increased flexibility, having ligament laxity might seem like an advantage. However, “increased” flexibility does a great deal of damage to your ligaments and affects joint stability through susceptible tearing and chronic body pain. Ligament laxity is often a hereditary trait, but it could happen if an individual gets into a car accident or sports resulted in accidents. If you’ve been experiencing ligament laxity and need treatment, our ligament laxity analysis in Suffolk County will be able to provide you a proper diagnosis and treatment for your condition.

Sometimes it can be hard to know the exact causes of your body pain, so it is imperative that you look for the symptoms that would suggest you have ligament laxity. This is some of the symptoms you should look out for:

- Arthralgia

- Frequency of joint injury

- Back problems

- Minor strains in young women

- Trigger points of body pain

- Chronic body pain

- Abnormal joint movement

- Foot pain when standing or walking
