Hypermobility and Knee Injuries.
Steiner, Mark E.
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v15 n6 p159-62,165 Jun 1987
A review of research on the effect of hypermobility on knee injury indicates that greater than normal joint flexibility may be necessary for some athletic endeavors and that it may be possible to change one's underlying flexibility through training. However, for most athletes, inherited flexibility probably plays only a small role, if any, in etiology of injury. (Author/CB)
