The kinematical constraints satisfied by helicity amplitudes are derived by two methods. One uses extra kinematical symmetries, which are present whenever there are constraints. The other uses the connection between M functions and helicity amplitudes. It is shown that the threshold and pseudothreshold constraints do not imply conspiracies between different Regge trajectories. The transitions between the different sets of s=0 constraints (which change when masses become equal) are described.
