    they are at risk but from what i've heard 'playing around' with being double jointed doesn't affect your getting arthritis, tho i'm not sure.
    I have loose ligaments (sp?) so i can also do a lot of weird and wonderful things, the only bad stuff i have experienced from mucking with my joints is the pain when i put them back in place carelessly.

    wish i could make sense ;)

    I'm not double jointed, but can spin my wrist/hand around 360 degrees....

    I guess that if, when you play with your joints, they rub against each other then you could be at risk of osteoarthritis (when the joints are just worn away)? I'm just guessing, but it would seem logical! But I don't see any other reason why it would put you at increased risk of arthritis. ;)

    Im not double jointed but i can pull my thumb a far bit back and it looks fucked up.

    the consequences can be different for different ppl, but i dont think there wud be too many consequences for bein double jointed, ur body will always be like that, so i wudnt think too much wud come of it......
