Being double jointed means that you can bend your joints more than the average person. There are many misunderstandings when it comes to the meaning of being double jointed. In one case, the term itself implies that double jointed people have twice the number of joints than normal human beings. Some even assume that double joints allow for twice the usual amount of motion. However, these meanings are myths. All human beings have the same number of bones and joints, all of which have similar capacities for movement.

Most people think that if they can bend their joints in strange ways that they are double jointed, but they aren't. It is just easier for them to bend their joints than others.

I believe that you can only be born with this condition.

If there are surgical options, I'm not aware of any.

If you are double jointed, then the flabasmic fluid is leaving its place in your joints everytime you move it wrong.

Is being double jointed gross?

Not necessarily. Although non-double-jointed people find the flexibility of double-jointed people appalling, it is a natural occurrence. It is just an ability that you were born with that others don't have, and since others don't have it, they find anything that they don't have appalling and 'gross'. Thus, being double-jointed is not gross, but a rather useful asset.

Is double jointed real?

Yes, technically, being double jointed is real, but the correct name for it is hypermobility or hyperlaxity, which is what doctors and other medical people will refer to it as. Look those words up and you can discover a little more about being hypermobile. I am double jointed, and can do lots of weird things from my shoulders to my fingers, so it does make me angry to see somebody who says being double jointed isn't real. It is, but they may call it something else. It's all the same thing.

What does the term double jointed mean?

Yes, double jointed or hypermobility is when the joint is very flexible or lax. This can occurs in many joints but is most common in fingers and limbs. For example, if one is double jointed in their elbow, when they extend their arm the elbow will appear to be bent the opposite way or curving inward.


Can you do push up double jointed in the arm?

Yes, you can unless you arm is bringing you pain, which rarely happens. I am double jointed from the shoulders down to my fingers and I find no problem. However, cases can be different so if it hurts, let your parents/guardian know and have them take you to a doctor. They will refer to being double jointed as hyperlaxity or being hypermobile, just to let you know.
