We provide the physiotherapy services at the Hypermobility Unit at the Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth. It is a specialist centre – the only private facility of its kind – and the multi-disciplinary unit is a ‘one-stop-shop’, catering for all the medical and rehabilitation needs of patients with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS) and the various types of the Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
Hypermobility is frequently misdiagnosed and is poorly understood. Patients are often knowingly ‘double-jointed’ enabling them to take part in dance, gymnastics and other performing arts as a child. However, symptoms can change, leading to more painful disorders of the joints as well as problems in the functioning of other body organs including the neurovascular, gastrointestinal and gynaecological systems.
For more information or to book an appointment with a physio who specialises in hypermobility, please call 020 7806 4010.
The level of knowledge and expertise in hypermobility is exceptional. I travel from the north west of England to the clinic, as do my children. It is well worth the journey. It has made a big difference to our pain levels and quality of life. K

I have complete trust in Lucys work and the dedication she has shown, to improving my quality of life.
