I've always had a unique perspective in my clinical work. Looking back, it's probably because like my patients, I’m hypermobile.

If you're hypermobile, you’ll likely be very aware that hypermobile bodies are literally built differently. Many of the patients who see me with muscle and joint pain are tired of ineffective cookie-cutter treatment that doesn’t help. And being told to “live with it” simply isn’t good enough.

That's why I take a different approach.

I collaborate closely with my hypermobile patients to create personalized, evidence-based treatment plans focussed on getting meaningful and long-lasting results. My approach to hypermobility is influenced by my previous work with elite athletes, where even tiny improvements are always fought for. This precise clinical approach is even more important when working with hypermobile patients, as a seemingly minor improvement in an injury can result in a major improvement in quality of life. Helping hypermobile patients to feel better is why I’m so passionate about my clinical work.

In my spare time I enjoy creating content (or as I like to call it, art!) for my Hypermobility HQ online presence. I love public speaking, and my podcast Help! I’m Hypermobile and various workshops I run throughout the year are two of my favourite ways to connect with the hypermobile community. And that’s without even mentioning the awesome Hypermobility HQ Discord. I guess you could say that hypermobility is a passion of mine!

As for things that aren’t directly hypermobility-related, I enjoy playing video games (The Witcher 3 is my favourite), piano (it’s fun playing pop-songs after a decade of studying classical pieces), and exercising at the gym as I work to keep my hard-earned muscle mass. I also have a cat who talks by pressing buttons and high-fives me, so that’s pretty cool.

I am also often a first point of contact for patients who think they might be hypermobile, but are not sure what next steps to take. 

Although I initially moved from Canada with the intention of studying law, I quickly realised that healthcare was my calling. As a butterfly swimmer in my teens and someone who has since gone on to dabble in quite a few sports as an adult, I always had an interest in the musculoskeletal system and how it affects health. Although my initial clinical work as an osteopath consisted of working with elite professional athletes, over time my focus transitioned to working with complex, chronic, and seemingly ‘treatment-resistant’ injuries. Eventually I realised that most of these patients had something in common: their hypermobile connective tissue.

Although I occasionally see patients who are not hypermobile, today the vast majority of my patients are hypermobile. I routinely work with patients who have Hypermobility Spectrum Disorder (HSD), Hypermobile Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (hEDS), Marfan’s Syndrome, and Loeys-Dietz Syndrome.

“Alex truly goes above and beyond for her patients. I was diagnosed with HSD and was in a lot of pain and so overwhelmed with all the conflicting information from medical professionals. She is so professional and understanding. It's like the penny finally dropped working with Alex.”
