Did you know children can get arthritis, too?

More than 300,000 American children and almost 6,000 Tennessee youth suffer from Juvenile Arthritis that causes joint pain and decreased mobility. There are nine types of juvenile arthritis, which is used as an “umbrella” term for a number of childhood diseases that affect the joints. Unlike adult arthritis, the different types of juvenile arthritis have special concerns and symptoms accompanied by common arthritis symptoms.
