Ligament Laxity Analysis

Our mobility is naturally supposed to be limited to protect joint and tissue stability. However, certain hereditary or injury-caused conditions can be a cause of concern for “loose ligaments.” Ligament Laxity is a term that refers to the “lax” or looseness of ligaments surrounding your joints. It may seem like an advantage to have extensive flexibility, but immense damage is caused to your ligaments and joint stability with susceptible tearing and chronic body pain.

The condition is almost certainly diagnosed as a hereditary trait, but may stem from other occurrences in car accidents or sports related injuries. Such incidents of whiplash in these high stress situations can be a direct link to damaged joint stability. While the exact cause of your body pain may be overlooked initially, it is important to pay attention to symptom warnings that tell you when it’s time to see your doctor:

  • Arthralgia
  •  Frequency of joint injury
  • Sprained ankles
  • Shoulder dislocations
  • Knee effusions
  • Back problems
  • Minor strains in young women
  • Whiplash related to injury
  • Trigger points of body pain
  • Chronic body pain
  • Abnormal joint movement
  • Foot pain when standing or walking (loose ligaments in the feet)

Such symptoms lead to extreme joint damage including bone dislocation, chronic back or body pain. In more extreme cases, where the severity level is high, ligament tissues can be thinned and become nonexistent between bones causing grinding pain and stiffness in the affected limb.

A visit with Dr. Lambert is the first step towards fixing this problem, and receiving a thorough diagnosis. Further, he will help direct you with proper care methods for your individual level of severity. Above all, treatment goals are established to address and relieve pain while strengthening your joints. A variety of solutions are available to you for optimal pain recovery

  • Over-the-counter pain relievers
  • Sprays
  • Creams
  • Physiotherapy
  • Prescription pain medication
  • Muscle strength training
  • Restriction of high stress mobility activities, that can cause hyper extension of the joints
  • Myofascial release (massage, heat, and other sensory treatments for pain relieve)
  •  Exercise programs with low-resistance muscle toning and gradual frequency increase for joint stability
  • Foot surgery (referring to patients with Ligament Laxity in the foot)
  • Proper foot inserts and highly supportive footwear (addressing foot pain when standing or walking)
  • Orthotic therapy
  • Conservative Ligament Therapy: Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation
  • Surgery for general areas of Ligament Laxity (this is an extreme step and should only be done in following to conservative treatment therapy and rest)
  • Padding or Braces (worn during any physical activity that involves joint mobility)

The most successful remedies for Ligament Laxity incorporate controlled strength programs and direct pain release therapy.Dr. Lambert’s practice focuses on wellness programs used to educate and support lasting patient results.
