A two-year-old patient was diagnosed with arthrogryposis because of inflected knees (15-20 degrees) and stiff hamstrings. All joints and reflexes were normal. Activities were described as age-appropriate, but the patient walked with inflected knees and increased lumbal lordosis. Physiotherapy and botox did not improve the condition. Because of pain and hampered activities, the patient - now aged 11 years - was treated with musculoskeletal medicine. After treatment the patient could walk normally without pain and stand with stretched knees.
