Hypermobility Syndrome Association
49 Orchard Crescent
Plymouth, PL9 7NF
The Hypermobility Syndrome Association is a support group for individuals and families affected by hypermobility syndrome, a composite term referring to laxity of the joints. At one end of the spectrum, this would include diseases such as Marfan syndrome, with potentially serious complications. At the other end, it would include conditions such as benign joint hypermobility syndrome, which may result in pain or other problems but do not pose a serious threat to life and health. The association provides information and educational materials to medical practitioners, as well as to patients and families. Members are welcome from all countries.
