Generalized Joint Laxity
Understanding joint related symptoms and features.
Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.
Joints are a part of the musculoskeletal system of the body which also includes the bones of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissue.
Joints are essentially where two or more bones meet to allow for movement.
Symptoms affecting the joints can not for the most part be seen with the naked eye. Diagnosing a joint related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.
Symptoms relating to the joints may affect the ability of an individual to function and move normally.
What is generalized joint laxity?
The areas of the body where two or more bones meet is called a joint, such as fingers, toes, knees, and hips. Most joints enable mobility: they help body parts move. Joint hypermobility, or generalized joint laxity, means that a joint can move beyond what is considered a normal range of motion. This can affect several or all joints. Generalized joint laxity can be a marker for certain diseases or syndromes. It can cause pain or increase the risk of dislocation.
What should I do next?
In some instances, generalized joint laxity may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
