I've posted on here before about a persistent groin strain and hip problems and having finally got myself a physio my fears have been confirmed. A LOT of it is down to my hypermobility. I always knew I was very bendy, but apparently I'm "high-end" hypermobile and the reason my groin and hip is bad is because a) my lower back is very stiff due to overcompensation for my stupidly bendy upperback (I hinge from two particular vertebrae so much that there are creases in my skin apparently) and b) the muscles are clinging on to dear life to hold my pelvis where it should be.
She's given me exercises to help this, and it does seem to be working. But now I am also getting strange pains in my ankles, starting at the top of the ankle and up the inner calf and shin. I'm thinking this is all linked, and perhaps my ankles need strengthening (used to go over on them ALL the time when I was younger). Any advice on how I can strengthen my ankles?
And how do other super-bendy people deal with these things? I'm starting to get bored of the sound of my own whinging!!
