Hypermobility Assessment

Diagnoses of Hypermobility are often missed as patients are treated for their individual ailments and injuries, such as IBS, joint dislocation, and fatigue.

Our in-depth Hypermobility Assessment, led by our clinical team, is designed to investigate the physical and psychological effects of Hypermobility for patients who may be unsure of the cause of their symptoms.

Prior to assessment, patients are issued a comprehensive questionnaire to help identify the salient features of the condition, allowing the clinical team to focus on areas of interest. A standardised examination based upon recognised scoring processes is then carried out.

Following the Assessment, patients will be issued a letter containing their scores as well as recommendations, which may include referrals to expert surgeons, clinicians and physical therapists who have a specialist interest in Hypermobility.

To refer a patient or for self referrals to our Hypermobility Assessment, please contact James Brewster, Services Coordinator on:
