What Causes Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis?
The exact cause of juvenile idiopathic arthritis is unknown. In modern medicine, the term ‘idiopathic’ is used to describe a disease or condition of unknown origin. The term comes from Greek, and means “one’s own”, and pathos means “suffering”.
The Symptoms Of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Symptoms of juvenile idiopathic arthritis can vary from child to child, but some common symptoms include joint pain, swelling, stiffness, and redness, and some children also experience stomach pain.
As a result of pain and stiffness, secondary symptoms such as general fatigue, muscle weakness, and limitations of daily life are also common.
Symptoms come and go in episodes of flare-ups and periods of remission. It is believed, like many other forms of arthritis, to be the result of both environmental (external) and genetic (internal) factors.
It can be hard as a parent to see your child in pain, so we try to give parents management strategies to reduce pain and discomfort without medication or injections.

Chiropractic Care For Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
Our chiropractor has over 30 years of experience and tailors his treatments to each client.
Dr. Lawerence Woods focuses is on releasing stiff joints in the spine to allow normal and optimal nerve conduction to and from the spinal cord, the superhighway of the body. This promotes healing and allows freedom of movement.
Dr. Lawerence Woods also uses core strengthening, which supports the body in everything it does. A strong core means your body has a stable foundation from which all other movements function.
Intrinsic Core Strengthening For Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis
The core is the center of the body, if the core is weak so is everything else, all other muscles are fatigued from working overtime. That is why we strengthen the core at Dublin Physical & Chiropractic.
