Juvenile Arthritis

Know the Symptoms and Treatments to Fight Juvenile Arthritis Effectively

Juvenile Arthritis causes inflammation in the bones of children usually under 16 years old. The symptoms of adult arthritis and juvenile arthritis may be the same but the latter brings with it more serious complications. Some complications are: eye inflammation, osteoporosis, joint contractures, and growth issues.

Arthritis in kids can be both short and long-term. Short-term arthritis in kids usually doesn’t come back; while long-term juvenile arthritis can be very long term – a lifetime. The more the joints are affected the more severe and painful the condition.

Identifying the signs enables the parents of a Juvenile Arthritic kid to get an early diagnosis. According to chiropractors in Lowell, common symptoms are:

  • Joint pain
  • Inflammation
  • Skin rash
  • Fatigue
  • Fever
  • Stiffness
  • Loss of weight
  • Irritability

Treatment Available for JA

Therapies and exercises can greatly help this autoimmune disorder. Depending on the type of arthritis, your doctor will determine the best treatment option that help your child.  Massachusetts Chiropractors who help kids with Juvenile Arthritis (JA) focus on helping:

  • To minimize inflammation
  • To alleviate pain
  • To restore mobility and strength of joints
  • To prevent joint damage

Chiropractic Treatment for Juvenile Arthritis

Chiropractors have found links between the structure of the affected bones and its functions. The reason is simple. With an improper structure the bones cannot function well. By adjusting the bone structure/layout through different methods such as spinal manipulation, spinal decompression, and others and using Class IV Laser therapy and Vibration therapy, Lowell, MA chiropractors have found Juvenile Arthritis (JA) has been greatly reduced or removed. When the bone structure/layout is properly aligned, the pain, inflammation, and the stiffness are reduced or even completely removed. Joints are able to function as intended, blood flow is increased and overall health is improved.  At this point, the body can start to heal itself.
