3. Benign Hypermobility Syndrome

Some people have joints that are more flexible than usual in a condition known a hypermobility. In most cases, this is because the collagen in their ligaments is not the same as the collagen in other people. This makes the ligaments weaker, which also means that they can stretch further.

Hypermobility is not an uncommon condition. It is also sometimes known as being double-jointed or lose jointed. It is also usually quite harmless with no unwelcome symptoms or underlying health issues, although it might cause some mild pain in the joints and muscles. Such cases of hypermobility are known as benign hypermobility syndrome.
