Physical Therapy Management for Child with Generalized Joint Hypermobility

Mohamed Sherif Sirajudeen.

Abstract
The purpose of this case report is to provide insight regarding the screening and early physical therapy interventions for a child with Generalized joint hypermobility (GJH). The increased mobility in joints than the normal range of movement in one joint is referred to as Hypermobility. The Hypermobility occurring in more than one joint is referred to as Generalized Joint Hypermobility (GJH). GJH is usually benign (asymptomatic) however, over time may lead to joint pain and developmental delay. Identifying the GJH at the school-age would facilitate to monitor early changes and to plan for early rehabilitative intervention. This case report describes the clinical findings of a 7-year-old primary school male student with GJH. This patient scored 9 points in the Beighton score. The preliminary physical therapy sessions were targeted to improve joint protection, joint control, and stability. The long-term goals were injury prevention and physical fitness.

Key words: Case report, Children, Hypermobility, Physical therapy, Ligament laxity, Joint protection, Joint control, Proprioception
