Table 3 Crude (Model 1) and adjusted (Model 2) logistic regressions, with odds ratio (OR) and 95% confidence interval (95% CI), for problems in Health Related Quality of Life in the EQ-5D-5 L dimensions, presented for participants with Non Generalised Joint Hypermobility (NGJH) compared with GJH, and for NGJH compared with GJHS (GJH including shoulder joint hypermobility)

From: Generalised joint hypermobility and shoulder joint hypermobility, – risk of upper body musculoskeletal symptoms and reduced quality of life in the general population
