What is hypermobility?

Joint hypermobility means that a person’s joints have a greater range of motion than is expected or normal. Most babies and children are naturally very flexible.

Many people become less flexible as they grow, but hypermobility continues into adulthood for some, up to about 20% of people. Being “flexible,” “bendy,” or “double-jointed” is not usually a problem, and for some, like dancers or gymnasts, it is an advantage.

Hypermobility that does not cause pain or other symptoms is referred to as “asymptomatic joint hypermobility” and does not need to be treated.

The problem occurs when joints are not just hypermobile but are also unstable. Joint instability occurs when the bones of a joint aren’t held in place securely. This can lead to joint subluxations, dislocations, sprains, and other injuries. Joint instability can cause both acute and chronic pain and interfere with daily life.

Pilates and Barre instructor, Donny Lindell has spent her lifetime learning to cope with the effects of hyper mobility in her body.  She was diagnosed with Ehlers Danlos in 2017 and early on in this diagnosis she found huge benefits from adding in Pilates and movement coaching into her life.  Donny went on to become a Pilates teacher, a barre teacher and a health coach so she could help others in the same way she was helped!

Donny is combining her love of movement and coaching to start offering her knowledge and expertise to others who may be coping with living with hyper mobility.   If you have hyper mobility or Ehlers Danlos and are looking for guidance on how you can use a regular movement practice to help you feel better in your body…you will love private Pilates sessions with Donny.    Schedule a complimentary first session with Donny to see if working with her would be a good fit for you.
