Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month

, ,

Dunwoody GA Physical TherapistsJuly is known for a lot of things – fireworks, summertime, and backyard BBQ’s just to name a few. But if you’re a teen living with joint pain or arthritis, it can be hard to enjoy all that the summer months have to offer. That’s why July has been named Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month.

Nearly 50,000 kids in the United States live with juvenile arthritis or juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, coping with regular joint pain, swelling, and redness that can prevent them from hanging out with friends, playing outside, and enjoying their summer vacation.

Luckily, many of these symptoms can be managed with the help of a comprehensive physical therapy program like the ones provided at Sovereign Rehabilitation.

Sovereign’s team of therapists is specifically trained to cater to the needs of teens and adolescents, offering programs that can maximize your child’s ability to simply be a kid. Our goal is not only to reduce the painful symptoms of juvenile arthritis, but also improve your child’s ability to perform the functions of everyday living.

Give Sovereign Rehabilitation a call today to discuss an individualized physical therapy treatment program for your child.
