Juvenile idiopathic arthritis

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis

The best treatment for juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is an individualized approach. At Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago, we have on-site access to orthopaedics, nursing, psychology and pediatric rehabilitation including physical and occupational therapy, and RN and social worker care managers, making it easier to provide the range of care needed. Children can be diagnosed with arthritis from a very early age. Our overall goal is to restore function and allow each child to reach his or her full potential. Treatment may include medical management with infusion therapy.


The Arthritis Foundation is available on clinic days to provide families with more information about support services the organization provides.
