July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month
Juvenile arthritis is a condition in which the inflammation (swelling) of the synovium happens. The synovium is the tissue lining the inside of the joints.
The disease usually affects children aged 16 or younger and has a physical and emotional impact on them, often leading to debilitating pain and feelings of loneliness or depression.
There is no cure for Juvenile Arthritis, however, with the help of medicines and special therapy affected children can:
- relieve pain
- reduce swelling
- increase joint mobility and strength
- prevent joint damage and complications
