Exercise for hypermobility conditions. Presented by Hannah Dower AEP

An introduction for AEPs: screen, manage and teach our clients to thrive.

Hypermobility may be considered a key feature of many musculoskeletal conditions, and yet its clinical relevance and consideration for exercise prescription seems to be underexplored. Like other conditions with nervous system involvement, its recent history has been occupied with gaining recognition and consistency in diagnosis.  

Yet Hannah urges us to move forward, recognising that treatment is more important than labels. The broad picture of holistic care, using a biopsychosocial lens, is addressed throughout including pacing, boundaries, mental health, expectations and client values. These link in with the movement specific considerations which place an emphasis on client-led preference and strength training. 

This is a practice area where the evidence is still emerging. Ultimately Hannah invites us to be present for our clients, to validate their experiences, and to offer movement prescription that reflects our understanding of the person in front of us.
