Can being physically active affect inflammation, disease activity, bone health or the likelihood of disability in adulthood? If your child is already active, does having JIA increase the risk of injuries?
- Learn about the many benefits of physical activity for JIA management and why it’s a critical component of a comprehensive treatment plan
- Understand how to help your child choose the right activity
- Learn how JIA may make your active child vulnerable to injury and which type of activity should be off-limits
- Get tips on preventing injuries and helping your child bounce back safely and quickly
