Your Child's Care Begins Here
To effectively manage and minimize the effects of juvenile arthritis, an early and accurate diagnosis is essential. Our pediatric rheumatology experts evaluate symptoms and precisely design a treatment plan to ensure each child manages joint pain and maintains an appropriate level of activity.
Chronic juvenile arthritis may seem like "growing pains." But normal growing pains usually occur in the bones (below the knee and on both sides), randomly throughout the day and are generally not related to activity. Juvenile arthritis is more specific to the joints, goes on for 6 weeks or more and usually causes pain in the morning that improves throughout the day. Activity usually alleviates the pain.
