Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month


Chiropractic Care in Manhattan

Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month is dedicated to bringing awareness to juvenile arthritis. Unfortunately, there is a misconception that older people are the only ones who can get arthritis. This is far from the truth. Juveniles can also receive arthritis, and the condition can bring about many health complications if not diagnosed and treated right away. At Balanced Health Medical in Manhattan, we want to raise awareness for chronic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), and we want to help treat the condition with non-invasive chiropractic care. It is estimated that over 300,000 kids in America suffer from juvenile arthritis.

What is Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis?

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis, also known as juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, happens when the immune system mistakenly attacks its own cells and tissue. The condition occurs in children 16 years and under, and it is accompanied by joint inflammation, pain, swelling, stiffness, spiked fever, and a skin rash. When JIA is left untreated, it can lead to loss of vision, disability, and permanent joint damage. That is why our chiropractors in Manhattan advocates for children with juvenile arthritis. They need our awareness and support so that they can receive the treatment that they deserve to live a healthy, normal life.

Treatment of Juvenile Arthritis

Treatment of JIA is done through a combination of activities to help bring your child back to normal function and mobility. Our chiropractors may recommend physical therapy to help maintain your child’s full range of motion and flexibility. We might also suggest nutritional and lifestyle changes to reduce inflammation and swelling in the joints.
