How To Raise Awareness For Juvenile Arthritis?
Use Custom Bracelets For Education, Awareness
Write your own message on wristbands to raise awareness for this disease. About 294,000 American children under age 18 have arthritis or other rheumatic conditions. Unlike arthritis associated with older adults, juvenile arthritis is an auto-immune disorder caused by the body's own defense systems. July is juvenile arthritis awareness month, and events are planned all over the nation to help raise awareness and research dollars. Blue is the recognized awareness color for juvenile arthritis. Make your awareness campaign even more powerful with custom blue juvenile arthritis wristbands!
Facts about Juvenile Arthritis
According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), here are some important facts about juvenile arthritis.
Scientists don’t know why this happens or what causes the disorder. Some think it’s a two-step process in children: something in a child’s genes (passed from parents to children) makes the child more likely to get arthritis, and something like a virus then sets off the arthritis.
The most common symptoms of juvenile arthritis are joint swelling, pain, and stiffness that doesn’t go away. Usually it affects the knees, hands, and feet, and it’s worse in the morning or after a nap.
Most children with arthritis have times when the symptoms get better or go away (remission) and other times when they get worse (flare).
Arthritis in children can cause eye inflammation and growth problems. It also can cause bones and joints to grow unevenly.
There is no cure for juvenile arthritis. Doctors can prescribe treatments to reduce swelling, maintain joint movement, and relieve pain.
