Several people in my immediate family have had problems with loose ligaments or ligament laxity, and now I have noticed an increase in my own symptoms too - frequent sprained ankles, back pain, and knee cap issues. I am 40 years old, and I understand that the problems will only get worse with the ageing process. What is the treatment for loose ligaments? Does nutrition pay a part? What do I need to know to delay or halt my ligament laxity problems?
