We all know too well the challenges people face in receiving a hypermobility diagnosis, both in Australia and all over the world. I hope that one-day hypermobility will be picked up and diagnosed by primary care physicians, but until that day, we need to map out how patients are most likely to get a correct diagnosis.
If you read this information and find any errors, please let us know by email. Also, if you know any alternative routes of diagnosis in your Australian State or Territory, we would be keen to hear about it. At this stage, the pathways for hypermobility diagnosis that are listed here are purely through the public health system.
Sometime in the not too distant future, we hope to be able to bring you a directory of private health care professionals who understand and work with people with hypermobility, from diagnosis through to management. (If you are one of those health professionals, please make sure you're on our mailing list. You can fill in your details on the Health & Hypermobility page)
