The goals of treatment are to relieve pain and inflammation, slow down or prevent the destruction of joints, and restore use and function of the joints to promote optimal growth, physical activity, and social and emotional development. In many cases, JIA is treated with a combination of medication, physical therapy, and exercise. In some cases, you may require corticosteroid injections into the joint or surgery. Consult.Rheumatologist for further advice...
