SeaMonkey Posted November 13, 2003 Report Share Posted November 13, 2003 Ok, I've always had a very SLIGHT hyperextention in my arms and fingers......but I've noticed within the last 2 years, it's gotten worse. I have a huge swayback, both my arms and fingers bend back at the wrong angle and my shoulders will twist so that I can pull my arm behind my head and almost have it in a completely straight line....I'm 24 years old, shouldn't I be tightening up instead of getting so loose? I've been working on making sure I'm straight behind the knees and really focusing on my turnout, and now my stupid knees are starting to hyperextend too. It's not that the hyperextension is making me unstable. I do a lot of situp to stablize my back and once I started doing Modern it helped to keep it stable and its fine, its just that if I'm doing a piece with really straight arms, they'll ache afterwards and if I'm standing up and painting for long hours (I'm a painting major) the backs of my knees will hurt. I guess my question is that have you ever heard of hyperexension getting worse as someone gets older and is there something I can do to maybe prevent it? Quote Link to comment
