    Arthrogryposis is a diverse condition and no two people affected are alike. However, through physiotherapy, selective use of surgery and orthoses (splints or callipers), the majority of children go on to lead full and active lives. With every baby born with Arthrogryposis, it is important that an accurate diagnosis is sought as soon as possible. – Dr. Hall was the first to define Amyoplasia (the most common form of arthrogryposis) and the book she co-edited called Arthrogryposis: A Text Atlas became the definitive publication on arthrogryposis (a condition where some or all joints have reduced range of motion).

    Arthrogryposis Treatment. This is a condition that cannot be reversed. Patients usually undergo physical therapy to help them cope with the demands of life. Every patient will respond differently to treatment. This is due to the fact that arthrogryposis comes in a variety of forms. Arthrogryposis multiplex congenita is a collective term applied to a very large number of different syndromes characterised by non-progressive, multiple joint contractures present at birth. 1,2 The joints usually develop normally in early embryonic life but, as gestationFile Size: KB.

      Arthrogryposis is not a single entity but is a feature of many different conditions of which the most common is known as amyoplasia. Children suffering from Arthrogryposis may also suffer from other health conditions impairing the nervous system, heart, kidneys and other vital organs of the body. Arthrogryposis (multiplex congenita) is a clinical or imaging descriptor that denotes congenital non-progressive joint contractures involving two or more body regions.

).Clubfoot is the most frequent deformity, but symmetrical flexion deformities may be present in all limb joints. Contractures in arthrogryposis are probably the nonspecific consequence of intrauterine immobilization.
