Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

When you hear about arthritis do you think about children? If you’re like many people in the United States, you probably are unaware that arthritis affects more children than juvenile diabetes and cystic fibrosis combined.

Juvenile arthritis is one of the most common chronic illnesses affecting children yet it is often undetected or misdiagnosed when symptoms first appear. Joint pain, stiffness and swelling around a joint may be early signs of a serious inflammatory rheumatic disease. Early medical treatment can prevent serious, permanent damage to a child’s joints.

 

There is no known cure however advances in research have produced new treatments that moderate and even stop the effects of juvenile arthritis, preventing significant disability in later years. So let’s make it our goal this month to do what we can to help increase awareness that arthritis can affect anyone at any age. Let's also remember to do what we can to send support, love and inspiration to the 300,000 kids growing up with arthritis, as well as providing hope, love and admiration for their amazing parents!
