12/2/09 - It took me two years, three orthopedic doctors, three ankle sprains and one finger dislocation with a sprain to figure out that I have ligamentous laxity. I'm so thankful I finally found a doctor that isn't "stumped." I'm sharing his contact info because he is wonderful and maybe he can help you too.

Wow - your knowledge needed[edit]

I have just been diagnosed with ligamentous laxity - by my podiatrist. And it's actually something that has always made sense to me -- but I had never encountered the term before. A previous podiatrist simply mentioned 'ligamentous laxity' in a long list of possible causes of flat feet -- but I didn't think this applied to me.
My point is, if any of you know what type of doctor to see that has special knowledge of this condition who can give me some good feedback about it? If it means that bones are more prone to breaking, does that mean I'm at risk of osteoporosis (I'm a guy, by the way)? How is the condition specifically diagnosed? I'd love some more information.
