Those looking for a treatment for Juvenile Arthritis have been working hard and has made progress in the treatment of the disease. Juvenile Arthritis is painful and debilitating for those that suffer with it. You can help bring awareness to the disorder by helping to share the news that there are 300,000 kids nationwide that suffer from JA.. I have known a few children personally that have fought bravely to live a good life with the daily pain of this disorder.

WHat is Juvenile Arthritis
Arthritis is a joint inflammation but it may also occur in eyes, skin and gastrointestinal tract There are many forms of this disorder that has been classification of juvenile arthritis. 
  • JRA=== Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis

Classification is decided depending on symptoms , number of joins involved and presence of antibodies in the blood. JRA is the most common 


There is no known cure for juvenile arthritis. Pain can be controlled, inflammation may be reduced and the individual may be able to possibly maintain ability to move but there is no cure. Most individuals with juvenile arthritis who have it to an extreme must have surgery to prevent more joint damage. 

Most cases of JA are controlled by medication, therapeutically physical activities and healthy eating.
