Recognising Normal & Abnormal
The importance of knowing about normal joints and normal development is highlighted with several cases;
- Regression of achieved milestones in a child with inflammatory arthritis
- Frequent falls in a child with muscle disease
- Leg pains in a child with joint hypermobility
Being confident in recognising 'normal' (development, normal variants and normal joints) in the growing child is important to know when to be concerned.
