Get to Know Hypermobility and its Potential ImpactsFebruary 23, 2015 | Author: TMJ Treatment Center
Simply put, hypermobility is the ability to move your joints outside of the designed range of motion, according to the Hypermobility Syndrome Association, and it isn’t uncommon. Most people with some level of hypermobility see it most prevalently during childhood or adolescence. Hypermobility can be something that never medically impacts those living with it and it can also lessen with age. However, it may cause injury around the joints and could be indicative of other syndromes, such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS).
Dr. Mitakides has dedicated his career to being an expert in TMJ, hypermobility and EDS and improving the lives of people living with these ailments. With hypermobility, it can often impact the jaw, neck and shoulders, causing severe headaches and TMJ-related pain.
Working with a team of medical professionals, like the TMJ Treatment Center, who understand the pain, symptoms and causes of craniofacial pain related to hypermobility, is the most important step on the road to less pain and an improved quality of life.
To get started, check out the Beighton Scale checklist, used by Dr. Mitakides and other physicians who are experienced and trained in hypermobility and related syndromes. It is a simple way to determine if you should speak with a trained medical professional about your joint hypermobility.
