Although our primary focus is on amyoplasia, these basic principles usually apply to all forms of congenital contractures. Other types of arthrogryposis that commonly require orthopedic treatment are briefly covered at the end of this chapter. The primary objective of orthopedic management is to improve function by correcting deformity.

The contractures tend to improve with growth and nonoperative management. Scoliosis may require surgery. Knee flexion contractures may be most disabling and may require operative correction (Langenskiöld, 1985). These varied forms of arthrogryposis are usually readily differentiated if a careful evaluation is made. The management principles are, however, very similar to those for amyoplasia.
