Beighton Scoring System

The Beighton Score is a simple validated system used to quantify joint laxity and hypermobility. If you think you may have hypermobility, you can check your Beighton Score using the table below

Give yourself 1 point for each of the simple tests that you can do, with the maximum score being 9 points. Most people score less than 2, and only three to four in a hundred healthy people score 4 points or more.

Test Points
Able to put hands flat on the floor with knees straight 1
Able to bend left elbow backwards (hyperextend beyond 10°) 1
Able to bend right elbow backwards (hyperextend beyond 10°) 1
Able to bend your left thumb back on the front of your forearm 1
Able to bend your right thumb back on the front of your forearm 1
Able to bend you left little (fifth) finger back beyond 90° 1
Able to bend your right little (fifth) finger back beyond 90° 1
Able to bend your left knee backwards(hyperextend beyond 10°) 1
Able to bend you right knee backwards (hyperextend beyond 10° 1

 

The Beighton Score can be categorised into three groups:

  • 0-2 points not hypermobile
  • 3-4 points moderately hypermobile
  • 5-9 points distinctly hypermobile
