Abstract

Articular hipermobility is a conective tissue characteristic that gives the possibility of a higher range of motion to the osteo-articular system. This characteristic is considered in the selection for some sporting activities, where this range of motion is needed for competition and training purposes. On the other hand, exists the relationship between hipermobility and sporting injury, a non evidenced but controversial issue. In this review we expose the state of the art on the relation of hypermobility, sport injury and the presence of certain levels of anxiety in athletes.
