Abstract
Objective¦Joint hypermobility (JH) and Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS) are often underdiagnosed¦and were never specifically assessed in a selected population of chronic low back pain¦(LBP). This study aimed to assess JH and JHS among a population with chronic LBP using the¦Beighton and the Brigthon criteria.¦Methods¦We conducted a retrospective cross-sectional study based on a prospective data base¦among 143 patients with non-specific chronic LBP. Patients were seen by the same rheumatologist,¦who looked for JH and JHS and took their medical history. Data were analysed using logistic¦regression.¦Results¦We found a JH prevalence of 33,3% (CI 95% 22.0-44.6) among women and 21,4% (11.7-¦31.2) among men, and for JHS, of 37,9% (26.0-49.8) among women and 30,9% (19.7-42.0) among¦men. JH was less frequent among people older than fifty (P < 0.02). JHS was more prevalent among¦Swiss individuals (P < 0.01) and among individuals having a non-manual job (P<0.03) compared to¦there opposites. Patients having an important limitation for daily living activities were four times¦more likely to have JHS. Degenerative spinal disorders were negatively associated with JH (OR¦0.31 (0.13-0.73) and JHS (OR 0.31 (0.14-0.68).¦Conclusion¦A high prevalence of joint hypermobility was found in our population. JHS should be¦part of differential diagnosis in individuals with chronic non-specific LBP.
