Rehabilitation for Adults with Osteogenesis Imperfecta

Research output: ResearchChapter

Abstract

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a group of connective tissue disorders that is associated with a variety of impairments. These include osteoporosis, fractures, hypermobility and hypomobility, changes in muscle physiology and bony deformity. Most of the literature and focused research to date has been on children with osteoporosis with fewer studies on adults. This chapter will use data from the OI Registry, case experience and the available literature to discuss the incidents of the types of impairments that are experienced by adults with OI, the factors associated with aging and injuries that occur in individuals with OI, and suggest therapeutic interventions for management.
