Being hypermobile usually puts you in one of two camps:

  1. you are incredibly bendy, excel at yoga and other stretchy things, and hardly ever feel the pull of a stretch everyone else complains about


  1. your body is super tight (and often painful) in some places because it’s trying to create the stability your joints lack

I was a #1 for the longest time – and in the most amount of pain when I was at my most flexible.

Hypermobility is a complex topic, with lots of evolving terminology, multiple related medical diagnoses, and new published research.

And if you find that stretching isn’t relieving your pain, understanding hypermobility may be the key to moving better and feeling better.

So if you think you might be hypermobile (or work with clients who are), then today’s episode is for you!
