How is arthrogryposis diagnosed?

Your child’s doctor can make a diagnosis after a thorough medical history and careful physical examination.

X-rays often confirm the diagnosis and are helpful when your child’s doctor is evaluating stiff or dislocated joints.

Additional tests, including blood tests, muscle biopsies and other imaging studies, help doctors confirm the diagnosis.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
