Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis - How to prevent?

At the moment, there is no known way to prevents the onset of JIA. However, the disabilities caused by JIA can be prevented with early diagnosis and treatment. A healthy balanced diet and regular exercise are also helpful.

Family members can do several things to help a child with JIA physically and emotionally:

  • Get the best care possible
  • Treat the child as normally as possible
  • Learn as much as you can about your child’s disease and its treatment
  • Ensure that your child takes the treatment 
  • Encourage your child to exercise and take physical therapy
  • Work with therapists and other healthcare providers involved in your child’s care
