Hot topic in Lipedema
Posted on 12 August 2019
Often when talking with a Lipedema Woman you will find that they can move many of their joints in extreme positions. Here are a few of the positions that can be done:
Bending their thumb to touch their wrist
Fluxing the knee backwards instead of normal position
Bending fingers backwards towards the wrist or forearm
Bending and touching the floor with the palm of the hands
This can cause pain to the joints and stress on the joints. Imagine having a Hypermobile Shoulder joint and now you have the weight of the upper arm stressing that joint.
Pain in the knees due to the fluxation.
Ankles that are weak and often give especially as the Lipedema evolves.
Please take a look at some of the Hypermobile positions.
Ask your therapist or Doctor to check you out if you think you are Hypermobile. Check out the EDS support group.
