Joint Stability Problem

#1
Hey,

I have a hereditary Joint Stability problem (Hypermobility syndrome, Hypermobility).

Now, can anyone tell me whether I would even pass the application process with this? My joints can subluxate (shoulders, knees), etc.

I don't think i'd be able to join up, but it would be nice if I could get in

This applies to the TA aswell, not sure if the medical is different, I'll post this topic in the TA forum aswell if necessary.

Cheers

Ligamentous laxity (Hypermobility). Generalised ligamentous laxity (hypermobility) may be responsible for locomotor symptoms. If hypermobility results in more than 10 degrees of hyperextension in either knee or elbow, candidates are graded P8
P8 = unfit for military service. so it depends on how bad it is.

edited to add

Candidates with no more than two episodes of dislocation, or a single shoulder stabilisation procedure who have full shoulder function, are asymptomatic, and with negative apprehension test may be graded U2 (although referral for further assessment may be advisable for those who have had a stabilisation procedure).
c. Candidates with three or more dislocations, or who are symptomatic, have evidence of early arthritic change or have a positive apprehension test should be graded U8.
d. Candidates who have had more than one shoulder stabilisation procedure in the same shoulder should be graded U8.

Ahem, are you quoting stuff from JSPs again?

Thats me out then, damn. Get about 15 degrees in each knee.
