Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

A child with Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) has persistent inflammation of the joints causing pain, stiffness, and swelling. JIA is classified according to the number of joints affected, the location of the joints affected, and whether a rash and nail changes occur.

Symptoms of juvenile idiopathic arthritis can include:

  • Pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints
  • Fever
  • Rash 
  • Eye redness called “uveitis”

Conventional treatment for rheumatoid arthritis can include medication, physical therapy, and surgery to fix problems caused by arthritis.

“Helping our daughter with JIA has been frustrating and confusing. Dr. Sue helped set us on a path to supporting her treatment in a way that treats the whole body and not just the symptoms of the disease. Now our daughter’s energy, mood, and general well being are so much better. We’re hopeful, encouraged, and now curious about our entire family’s health.” – Erica Bokatzian
