Hypermobility can go way beyond having flexibility. When working with this population, we as teachers and therapists need to be aware of possible other symptoms and conditions such as Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS). Chronic Pain is often a feature in hypermobility cases too and this workshop will cover working with the pain mechanisms in hypermobility.


This is an invaluable workshop for anyone working with patients in this specialist field.
