591. Hypermobility Spectrum Disorders

“Being bendy” often starts as a party trick where you impress your friends with how flexible you are and they applaud your ability to put your foot behind your head. But hypermobility and the conditions associated are not only poorly understood within the standard healthcare system, they are also potentially very dangerous to those who live with them.

 

In this episode, Dr. Linda Bluestein of Hypermobility MD speaks with Lara about the full hypermobility spectrum disorders including Marfan Syndrome, Loeys-Dietz syndrome, and the most common, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, or EDS. Listen in to hear all about Dr. Bluestein’s journey with EDS, her thoughts on surgeries, and her approach to movement within the world of hypermobility.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • How to spot hypermobility and potentially serious conditions related
  • The phases of hypermobility
  • How you should adjust your workouts and activities for safer movement with these types of connective tissue disorders
