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.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the third year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.”
