About Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC)

Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita is a condition that affects the joints and muscles. Babies with AMC are born with stiff joints and weak muscles and often have to undergo extensive casting, surgery, treatments, and therapy to gain mobility and independence. There is no cure for Arthrogryposis. There is only treatment and therapy to improve function and then ongoing therapy and work to maintain that function because Arthrogryposis is a regressive condition, meaning…if treatment is not maintained and the body not used/moved, function will be lost and the body will try to regress back to how it was at birth.
