Relationship between hypermobility and movement proficiency in 6-12yr old children

Previous research has demonstrated that some children with identified or symptomatic joint hypermobility syndromes have lower movement proficiency (LMP).

However, the frequency of hypermobility amongst the general LMP population remains poorly understood. It is possible that many children with LMP also present with asymptomatic joint hypermobility, a factor that may contribute to the difficulties experienced with their movement. 

This project examined the relationship of hypermobility to movement proficiency and its frequency in children with LMP.
