Written Assignment: 1Childhood/Juvenile Arthritis    Childhood arthritis also known as juvenile arthritis. The most knowable type is called juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA). This condition of childhood arthritis can and may cause permanent damage to the joints. This can cause a result of children not being able to do the simple daily life activities as a “normal” child is capable of doing such as dressing and undressing themselves, running and playing, walking, going up stairs and so much more. When having juvenile arthritis it can also result in permanent disability for the child.    Unfortunately, there is no cure for juvenile arthritis. Some children that are diagnosed with this can achieve non active arthritis which means it goes away for the most part but whatever permanent damage is done will remain in the child’s joints. There is no fully getting rid of this condition. If you are diagnosed with this condition, there is room for improvement but not ever 100% cured. It will always follow you. There are quite a lot of signs and symptoms that come along with juvenile arthritis that will come and go overtime. When the symptoms get worse it is know as a flares and when symptoms get better it is known as remission. Most common symptoms are joint swelling, stiffness, swelling, fever, rashes, loss of appetite, inflammation of eyes, difficulty with daily activity such as waking, playing, and dressing themselves, and also loss of motion. There are 3 symptoms that will never go away when a child is diagnosed with juvenile arthritis they are joint swelling, Daily pain, and stiffness in your bones, muscles, and joints. The other symptoms will come and go along overtime. Exercising will help the symptoms to lessen the more you perform them.    The exact cause of childhood arthritis is unknown still. Is isn’t a genetic condition you get from generations or parents before you. You don’t have to be born with it to develop this form of arthritis, you can develop it overtime. As a child if your immune system is not working properly it will cause inflammation in the joints and possibly other body systems and you may develop juvenile arthritis. If your joints are weak and not being exercised enough you also have a chance of developing this condition as well. This condition can affect all ages, races, and ethnic backgrounds.    Juvenile arthritis can be diagnosed through a physical examination, having/reviewing symptoms, X-Rays, and lab tests. Also the doctor will ask about any family history just to get an idea of disease and conditions that may run in the family. A doctor is going to diagnose you. Usually a Rheumatologist that specializes in arthritis will confirm the diagnoses. A Pediatric Rheumatologist will be the specialized doctor for a child with this form of arthritis. Work citedhttps://www.niams.nih.gov/health-topics/juvenile-arthritishttps://orthoinfo.aaos.org/en/diseases–conditions/juvenile-arthritishttps://www.webmd.com/rheumatoid-arthritis/understanding-juvenile-rheumatoid-arthritis-basics#1
