Hypermobility in Children

https://tranquilbabiesny.wordpress.com/2017/04/15/hypermobility-and-proprioception-why-loose-joints-create-sensory-processing-problems-for-children/

N has my genetic disorder, Marfan Syndrome with Hypermobility. That means that our joints are so loose that they bend in ways that they shouldn’t. For example, N’s knees bend backwards when he is standing. Unfortunately, my hypermobility has progressed to the point that I have several dislocations a day. I can reduce them on my own most of the time, but rarely I need a dr to do it. I am really trying to help him stay healthy for as long as possible.

Hypermobility is not uncommon in younger children even if they are healthy. This article may be helpful to see if your child is a little hypermoblie.
