Abstract
Background Participants with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS) often suffer from anxiety, stress related illnesses and also from dysautonomia. The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is hypothesized to play a key role in the relationship between these variables. However, to date, no studies have assessed body awareness and the reactivity of autonomically-regulated organs in JHS using the Body Perception Questionnaire. Method A cross sectional study including 117 nonclinical youngsters (mean age 16.96±0.87 years old) assessed JHS in relation to body perception. JHS screening was done using the self-reported Screening Questionnaire for Collagen condition and Hypermobility assessment (SQCH) and body perception was assessed using the Spanish version of the Body Perception Questionnaire (BPQ).
