Hypermobility syndrome doesn't have to impair your quality of life. These basic practices can help you manage your symptoms on a daily basis:

  • Gently exercise and stretch.
  • If your joints are susceptible to dislocation during physical activity, take precautionary measures like wearing splints or bandages.
  • For pain, consult with your doctor about which analgesic drug or anti-inflammatory drug is right for you.
  • Avoid physical activities that put your joints under excessive stress.
