Can you explain why strength work helps with hypermobility?

Building strength using bands and dumbbells helps improve your body awareness and posture. With hypermobile joints, you can’t always sense what position the joint is in and it’s hard to feel where “neutral” is and working thoughtfully with an appropriate weight relative to your current level of strength can help!

Weights can provide feedback and information to the joint so you can better sense where your body is. They can also improve joint stability and strength.
