Chronic Joint laxity,(of multiple joints)

SHARE

Hello, I have a question that I can’t seem to find any particular answer for.
I have recently discovered that most of my major joints,(all of shoulder joints, hip joints, ankles, wrists, and most of the joints composing the entire spinal area cervical to sacral) are subject to chronic laxity.
This problem is exaserbated due to my involvement in poweflifting.
I have been working on proprioceptive movements, fixing muscle imbalances, flexability, general rehab exercises, etc.
I also have had a number of treatments such as steroidal injections, chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, and prolotherapy——which has benifited the most but only for a short,(4-5 week), duration. I was wondering if you knew of any steps of action I can take to solve my problem.
Ie: medical procedures, prescrpition drugs, additional rehbab exc. etc. I also should mention that I am taking a supplement called ligaplex via the reccomendation of my chiropractor, but I really haven’t seen any results yet over the past 5 weeks. Any info that you could give would be greatly appreciated. Regards, Garrett

  2. My daughter has the same problem…she can actually dislocate her hips. I’ve taken her to several doctors with no diagnosis. I ran across this diagnosis, Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome, and she seems to fall into this category. Though, with this folks experience a lot of pain. Yours could be just a congenital type of condition, of which the professionals suggest strengthening to stabalize the joints. Sounds like you’ve pretty much answered your own question…power lifting exacerbates your symptoms..then you should stop power lifting and find something not as stressful to your joints. It’s a tough call and a personal one that you need to really think about.
