Yes, anyone with hyperextensive ankles can injure the ankle. As a matter of fact, those who are double jointed are more prone to injury because of the extended range of motion in the area affected. The heightened mobility increases instability and jeopardizes a person's chance of avoiding injury while doing sports or even every day things. Being double jointed in the ankle makes things difficult for dancers, especially, because they are required to use their ankles quite a lot. Similarly you may find that if you are hyperextensive in the ankle, you tend to roll inward when you walk or may have some difficulty walking in heels without your ankles 'giving out'.
