Purpose: Biomechanical impairments are not apparent during walking in people with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS). This research explored biomechanical alterations during a higher intensity task, vertical jumping. Materials and methods: This cross...

Gait biomechanics in joint hypermobility syndrome: A spatiotemporal, kinematic and kinetic analysis (2020)
Journal Article
Alsiri, N., Cramp, M., Barnett, S., & Palmer, S. (2020). Gait biomechanics in joint hypermobility syndrome: A spatiotemporal, kinematic and kinetic analysis. Musculoskeletal Care, 18(3), 301-314. https://doi.org/10.1002/msc.1461

Introduction Joint hypermobility syndrome (JHS) symptoms of widespread joint hypermobility and pain, muscle weakness and reduced muscle‚Äźtendon stiffness suggest that there may be an impact on gait parameters. Identification of gait abnormalities may... Read More about Gait biomechanics in joint hypermobility syndrome: A spatiotemporal, kinematic and kinetic analysis.
