  • TITLE: Beighton Scores for Healthy Infants at the Age of Three Months

    AUTHORS: Anna Öhman

    KEYWORDS: Hypermobility, The Beighton Score, Infants

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Therapy and Rehabilitation, Vol.3 No.2, May 5, 2015

    ABSTRACT: Objective: To investigate the incidence of hypermobility in infants at the age of three months. Method: Eighty-one healthy infants aged three months were examined using the Beighton score. The spine was excluded for practical reasons; due to this the highest possible Beighton score for the participants in this study was 8. Also ankle dorsiflexion and the big toe were examined. Results: The mean score on the Beighton scale was 2.7; median was 2.0 and the range was 0 to 6. Almost half of the infants scored at least 4 on the Beighton scale. T test showed no gender difference. Neither was there any difference between right and left sides. Conclusions: Infants at the age of three months have high mobility in the distal joints, ankle dorsiflexion, thumb and little finger. It is rare to find hypermobility in elbows and knees at this age.
