  • Childhood Arthritis

    Childhood Arthritis is also called Juvenile arthritis is a term often used to describe arthritis means joint inflammation in children. Arthritis is also used more generally to describe the more than 100 rheumatic diseases that may affect the joints but can also cause stiffness, pain, and swelling in other supporting structures of the body such as muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. Children can develop almost all types of arthritis that affect adults. The most common type found in children is juvenile idiopathic arthritis. Symptoms of childhood arthritis also include stiffness, pain, swelling, and loss of movement in the joints. Some rheumatic diseases also affect the other parts of the body including different internal organs. Aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, and naproxen sodium are examples of NSAIDs. They are often the first type of medication used. All NSAIDs work similarly by blocking substances called prostaglandins that contribute to inflammation and pain. However, each NSAID is a different chemical, and each has a slightly different effect on the body. In 2003, arthritis in the United States resulted in an estimated $128 billion in medical-care costs and lost earnings. Unweighted sample sizes and final response rates were 27,157 (60.8%) in 2010, 33,014 (66.3%) in 2011; and 34,525 (61.2%) in 2012. 52.5 million (22.7%) of adults have self-reported doctor-diagnosed arthritis. 2.7 million (9.8% of all adults) have arthritis and arthritis-attributable activity limitation. 67 million (25%) adults aged 18 years or older will have doctor-diagnosed arthritis by the year 2030. n estimated 37% (25 million adults) of those with arthritis will report arthritis-attributable activity limitations by the year 2030.
