Hi there, and welcome
It is understandable that you are worried about her, not only to find that there is something wrong with your daughter, but also to find out just how much of a problem it can be for some.
I would recommend searching for relevant topics to find out more, and feel free to ask questions.
Firstly, half the battle with hms is to catch it early, as preventing problems is far easier than curing them once they have become long term and damaging. As your daughter is so young, and by the sounds of it has a fantastic physio, she has a major advantage there. The right footwear can help so much. if the feet are supported well, they support the ankles, which support the knees, and so on. She may need to avoid high risk activities, such as contact sports, but should be able , with the right support, to enjoy a full childhood/life.
Another point to remember is that often those of us struggling the most, are most likly to come here. HMS can be mild and only occasionally cause problems, but when we are coping with life well, we are less likely to come here. Just because some have it to a severe degree, doesn't mean your little one will. As I said before, catching it early and preventing things from progressing is a major advantage to her.
For most people who are hypermobile, they are just bendy. Think of the gymnasts on the olympics. There are some fantasticly bendy girls out there, who are clearly hypermobile, but unless they have pain and other problems due to the bendiness it is not HMS. Only a few bendy people have pain, so only a few have HMS. Assessing pain in children is not easy when they are too little to tell you. You know your daughter the best, and at that age you can only use her behaviour to tell you if she may be in pain. Maybe you could discuss the possibility of pain and how to deal with it with your physio?
Her physio sounds brilliant, and a good one who actually understands how wobbly joints can be improved , can make such a difference.
Hope this site can clear things up a bit for you,
