Acquired Hypermobility

I have acquired some more hypermobility - in my thumb. This is certainly possible (Bird, 2004, Bird, 2007) and now gives me a Beighton Score of 6.

Congratulations! Just kidding.

I find that it depends on the day for me. Sometimes I am loosey-goosey and other days I am really stiff in a joint or two.

I can't usually put my hands flat on the floor the first time down, but I get enough stretch in my hamstrings that the second time I roll down I can go hands-flat to the floor.

Strange how the body works.

Be good to yourself and your joints!
