Is this like being double jointed?  I remember the word being something similar…

I am! i am hypermobile in my hips, elbows, shoulders, wrists and jaw or double jointed as it is also named. Its a pain though, i get really bad pains in my joints and repetitive strain injury all the time. My jaw in particular is causing lots of pain lately especially since the removal of my wisdom teeth, they had to dislocate it and now its even more mobile then it was before

So in my experience, basically this all just is a word for symptoms independent of the cause. A lot of people with fibro, RA, etc have hyper mobile joints because the inflammation causes joint weakening and damage. A physical therapist once told me my joints are hyper mobile from dancing my whole life, and too many chiropractic adjustments.

@MrsFuzzyFace:  seeing as i have no idea what that is im going to say no! i had clicky hips as a baby which they said i would grow out of, but i went to the hospital last year for tests and xrays of ny joints because of the pain i was getting. They found i was hypemobile by doing mobility assessments like seeing how far i could stretch my legs and arms which over extend and my putting pressure on my joints which i had to try and resist. I too used to visit a chiropractor regularly, but she did notice i was hypermobile which explained alot of the back and shoulder pain i was going there for.

@BlondeMissMolly:  in my case it is because my muscles around my joints arent sufficient to hold the joint in position causing them to move more freely than they should.

@Carolinejane:  Yeah I think that’s what it comes down to for everyone, from my understanding.

@MrsFuzzyFace:  right and like carolinejane pointed out, it usually has to do with lack of muscle tone to hold the joints in the proper place and range of motion. Basically when the muscles are too weak the joints can’t function properly, but it can be a chicken/egg situation.
