Question Muscle Laxity... - June 18th 2011, 06:21 PM

I was reccently told by several doctors that I have a muscle laxity. I was just wondering if it is common and what it is exactly. The doctors explained it and I searched online for more info on it but I'm still a little confused. Will I still be able to do the things I love to do like waterski, go running, and play soccer????

Hey Becky.
I saw that your thread had no replies, and while I am certainly no expert on anything like this, I did a bit of research. I agree, searching online hasn't brought much up.
From what I've found, it obviously depends on the severity. I read about someone who still went running, but only for 45 minutes at a time? So it looks like you should still be able to do things.
Can you ask your doctor specifically about the activities so that it's clearer? I'm sure if you asked him, for example, specifically about water skiing, he should be able to tell you whether or not you should be able to do it and what problems you might come across.
Sorry if I haven't been much help, I would have expected there to be more information out there.

Hey Becky,

Hester is right about there not being much information on the internet. But from what I'm reading, it seems to be a symptom of something else, so I'd go back to your doctor and ask them for more information.

In the meantime, I would run/jog and waterski for a shorter amount of time, but you could go to the gym to build up muscle mass, but be careful not to over exert yourself.

I hope this helps.
