Conditions We Treat

Arthrogryposis Clinic

There are more than 300 conditions that can lead to arthrogryposis. These conditions fall into three categories based on the parts of the body most affected:

  • Limbs
  • Limbs and other parts of the body
  • Limbs and the central nervous system

Arthrogryposis, or the conditions causing arthrogryposis, are present at or before birth. These are called congenital conditions. 

The experts at Phoenix Children’s Arthrogryposis Clinic evaluate and treat children with arthrogryposis and its associated conditions. These include:

  • Amyoplasia: A type of arthrogryposis involving shortening, tightening or wearing away of the muscle supporting your joints in the arms and legs.
  • Congenital myopathies/muscular dystrophies
  • Distal arthrogryposis: A type of arthrogryposis involving permanent bending of the joints in the hands and feet, including fingers and toes.
  • Other forms of arthrogryposis
