The Beighton Score can quickly and easily assess generalized joint hypermobility using a 9-point scale. It is used solely as a clinical resource and screening tool. Joints included are the thumb, spine, elbow, knee, and the base of the pinky finger. If needed, a goniometer can also be used to measure a joint’s angle to determine its range of motion.
Read What is the Beighton Score?
In and of itself, the Beighton Score is NOT used for diagnosis, does NOT equate to a diagnosis, nor does it rule out the possibility of specific medical conditions, genetic disorders, or diseases. The Beighton Score is NOT a substitute for a more in-depth, thorough, and often necessary diagnostic workup or appropriate genetic testing. Please refer to the resources provided for additional pertinent and related information (links are below).
