BACKGROUND: Generalized Joint Hypermobility (GJH) is suggested as a contributing factor for injuries in young athletes and adults. It is presumed that GJH causes decreased joint stability, thereby increasing the risk of joint and soft tissue injuries during sports activities. The aim of this study was to determine the correlation between the hypermobility rate (using the Beighton`s modification of the Carter-Wilkinson criteria of hypermobility) in gymnasts and injury rate, during the period of one year...

Study Design Cross-sectional. Background Generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) may increase pain and likelihood of injuries and also decrease function and health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in elite-level adolescent athletes. Objective To assess the prevalence of GJH in elite-level adolescent athletes, and to study the association of GJH with pain, function, HRQoL, and musculoskeletal injuries. Methods A total of 132 elite-level adolescent athletes (36 adolescent boys, 96 adolescent girls; mean ± SD age, 14...

The article presents a diagnosis of dysplasia of connective tissue in athletes, where the most important are the methods of clinical assessment using diagnostic tests and rating scales manifestation of connective tissue dysplasia. Evaluation of patients with suspected connective tissue dysplasia should include inspection of an ophthalmologist, orthopedic trauma, cardiology. Should also be carried out by criteria diagnosis degree of connective tissue dysplasia by T. Y. Smolnova (2003) (Large and small diagnostic criteria), which include: increased skin extensibility, joint hypermobility (sprain, dislocation and subluxation, flat feet), muscle hypotonia, a hereditary predisposition to the disease, evaluation of signs joint hypermobility (Beighton criteria)...

PURPOSE: Knee function is reduced in patients with Benign Joint Hypermobility Syndrome. The aim was to study knee function in children and adults with Generalised Joint Hypermobility (GJH) and Non-GJH (NGJH)). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In a matched comparative study, 39 children and 36 adults (mean age children 10.2 years; adults 40.3 years) were included, comprising 19 children and 18 adults with GJH (Beighton ≥ 5/9; Beighton ≥ 4/9), minimum one hypermobile knee, no knee pain (children), and 20 children and 18 adults with NGJH (Beighton <5; Beighton <4)...

BACKGROUND: A recent meta-analysis found that generalized joint hypermobility is a risk factor for knee injuries during contact sports. The effect of hypermobility on the incidence of injuries in elite-level professional soccer players is not known. PURPOSE: To compare the incidence of injury between hypermobile and nonhypermobile elite-level male professional soccer players. STUDY DESIGN: Cohort study; Level of evidence, 2. METHODS: Fifty-four players from an English Premier League soccer club were assessed for hypermobility, using the 9-point Beighton scale (threshold, 4 points or above), at the start of the 2009-2010 season...

OBJECTIVES: To determine if joint hypermobility is a risk factor for injury in a professional football squad. Primary objectives were to estimate the prevalence of hypermobility amongst a professional football squad and to undertake an audit of injuries sustained over a season. Secondary objectives were to relate the injury audit findings and hypermobility levels to time missed through injury, assessed by training days and competitive first team games missed after musculo-skeletal injury...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the incidence of hypermobility in young female netball players and to determine the relation between hypermobility, previous injuries sustained in netball or other sports, and the use of protective equipment. METHODS: Under 16 year old female netball players from a local suburban netball association were assessed for joint hypermobility using the validated Beighton score (0-9, with higher scores indicating increasing hypermobility). Player profiles and details of sporting injuries, both netball and non-netball, and the use of protective equipment were gathered by means of a self completed questionnaire...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the prevalence of articular hypermobility and its relationship to musculoskeletal pain in Icelandic 12-yr-olds, and to obtain baseline data for a prospective study on the subject. METHODS: A total of 267 12-yr-olds were examined for articular hypermobility by the Beighton criteria. The children also answered a questionnaire concerning musculoskeletal pain and injuries, sports and musical activity. RESULTS: The prevalence of hypermobility (defined as >/=4 Beighton criteria) was 40...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the prevalence of joint hypermobility in a group of adolescent, interscholastic athletes. DESIGN: Cross-sectional; descriptive or observational. SETTING: Free preparticipation physical examinations for sports. SUBJECTS: Two hundred and sixty-four athletes (150 male, 114 female; average age, 15.5 years) comprised the entire set of athletes who came to our clinic for free physical examinations. INTERVENTION AND MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: We screened 264 athletes using the widely accepted Carter-Wilkinson-Beighton method, which examines range of motion at the knees, trunk, fingers, thumbs, and elbows bilaterally and employs a 0 to 9 scoring scheme (5 = hypermobile)...
