People with Hypermobility Syndrome (HMS), including Ehlers-Danlos type Hypermobility Syndrome, have a larger range of joint movement than is typical, which can cause pain and fatigue despite an outward appearance of good health. This book is the complete guide to living with and managing HMS, and is packed with ideas that can help to alleviate suffering and facilitate a happy and healthy everyday life. This book covers everything from recognising symptoms and obtaining initial diagnosis to living with the condition on a daily basis and managing its negative effects. The author, who has HMS herself, looks at how the condition affects children and adolescents, before moving on to explore pain management (including the use of physiotherapy, pilates and a selected range of complementary health therapies), pregnancy, physical and psychological aspects of the condition, and how it widely affects dancers and other performance artists. Wider conditions that encompass Hypermobility Syndrome are also touched upon, including Fibromyalgia and IBS. This book will be a must for anybody who suffers, or suspects they might be suffering from, Hypermobility Syndrome. It will also be of interest to their families and friends, and professionals working with the condition.

The Hypermobility Syndrome Association (HMSA) welcomes this book which is written from the experiences and reflections of the author who has Hypermobility Syndrome (also known as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome- Hypermobility type)... It offers an in depth account of the many difficulties that our members face each day; including the the lack of medical recognition and understanding of what is now being seen by researchers and experts as a very complex condition. Hypermobility Syndrome is not just about laxity of joints! It is a multi-systemic condition which has not just a physical impact on a person's life but also a psychological, economic and social impact. This book reflects all of this and more. --Donna Wicks, HMSA Senior Medical Liaison Officer, UK
What Isobel Knight brings to the literature [on Hypermobility Syndrome is something appealing and unique... This is a book for anyone who wants to understand the personal impact of Hypermobility Syndrome, as much as its clinical presentation and management without all the medical jargon. --from the foreword by Dr Alan J Hakim, Consultant Rheumatologist and Acute Physician, Whipps Cross University Hospital NHS Trust, London UK
