The Hypermobility Syndromes Association

Who we are

Helping people with hypermobility syndromes to live well and forge shorter routes to diagnosis.

The HMSA aims to provide support and information to those affected by a Hypermobility Syndrome and to promote knowledge and understanding within the medical community and the public at large. We assist sufferers to come to terms with their HMS and the distress that it can cause.

Support Groups at HMSA 

The severity of the effects of a Hypermobility Syndrome varies with the individual: some have few symptoms others are severely affected. 

Hypermobility Syndromes are generally 'invisible illnesses' and because of this we can look well to the outside world but are often in severe pain. Moreover the nature of hypermobile joints combined with frail tissues means that we are prone to injury when performing simple everyday tasks.

This opens us to skepticism from family, friends, teachers and by those in the medical and health professions. The pain, stress and frustration can lead to depression: thus depression can often be mistaken as the cause of the illness, not a result of it.

Our services include: support through groups on and offline, events and information to help those living with syndrome/s live well and manage their day to day. We also offer information, workshops and masterclasses for health professionals to help the gap on diagnosis.
