Here is The 5-Part Questionnaire To Screen For Hypermobility.
Can you now [or could you ever] place your hands flat on the floor without bending your knees?
Can you now [or could you ever] bend your thumb to touch your forearm?
As a child, did you amuse your friends by contorting your body into strange shapes or could you do the splits?
As a child or teenager, did your kneecap or shoulder dislocate on more than one occasion?
Do you consider yourself “double-jointed”?
Answering yes to 2 or more of these questions suggests hypermobility (sense 85%, spec 90%)
THE BEIGHTON SCORING SYSTEM
The Beighton Scoring System measures joint hypermobility on a 9-point scale. The joints assessed are:
- Knuckle of both little/fifth/pinky fingers
- Base of both thumbs
Where applicable, range of movement is measured using a goniometer, an instrument that measures the joint angle.
