Bone and joint problems often associated with self injurious behaviour

Bone and joint problems
Although there has been limited research into bone and joint problems in Cornelia de Lange Syndrome the presence of scoliosis (curvature of the spine), difficulties with gait and restricted movement in certain joints such as the elbow have been reported. Abnormalities in the hip occur in approximately 5-10% of children and adults with the syndrome.

Some parents also indicate that their children often ‘pop’ their hips, knees and other joints out of place. However, research on this has not been carried out and at the moment these reports are anecdotal. It is not clear what sensation is gained from this behaviour but it is thought that perhaps it might help to relieve pain or discomfort in the joints.
