Understanding joint related symptoms and features
Symptoms may affect multiple parts of the body. Understanding which part of the body a symptom affects, can help us to better understand the potential underlying causes of a symptom, including a rare disease or genetic syndrome.
Joints are a part of the musculoskeletal system of the body which also includes the bones of the skeleton, muscles, cartilage, tendons, ligaments and other connective tissue.
Joints are essentially where two or more bones meet to allow for movement.
Symptoms affecting the joints can not for the most part be seen with the naked eye. Diagnosing a joint related symptom may involve different tests and assessments, both subjective and objective.
Symptoms relating to the joints may affect the ability of an individual to function and move normally.
What is Joint Laxity?
It refers to joints that are looser than normal. This generally does not cause any pain but may lead to a higher risk for joint dislocation and other injuries as the joints are less stable.
What should I do next?
In some instances joint laxity may be one of the features of a rare disease or genetic syndrome. In this case fast, targeted genetic analysis can give you a more accurate diagnosis.
