Double Jointed


Good Afternoon,

My son he is 7 years old and I think he''s has double jointed boned. He can move his arms aroud. And has a very funny elbow and shoulder blades.

What concerns me is that he often complains about a pain his calf and he says when he runs especially its painful.
When he sleeping in the car he gets muscle cramps.
I don''t know what type of doctor I should take him too.
Please assist.
