Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis

Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis is a serious condition that effects more than three million children in the United States. Children who suffer with arthritis are in pain and experience that pain in their everyday life. Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis is one of the most common forms of arthritis in the young and it commonly affects children under the age of 16. The condition itself causes inflammation in the synovial lining of the joints that are affected.

Since this condition is unique and complicated, treatment does not always work for each child. If your child has Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis and is in pain, the team at Stem Cell and PRP Injections wants to hear from you. Our team specializes in stem cell therapy and PRP injections for arthritis to relieve pain and inflammation. Call our office today to schedule a free consultation.

Treatment for Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis in NYC

Treatment for Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis has typically been steroids and anti-inflammatory medications, but they do not always work for everyone. In fact, those children who have a more severe version of the disease may experience worse symptoms than others and the medication does not alleviate the pain.

Joint replacement therapy is another treatment option, but it requires surgery and can be quite risky, especially for any child to undergo.

The solution is PRP injections and stem cell therapy. Stem cells are able to locate the affected areas and target them for healing. Once stem cells have been injected into the body, they work to restore the cellular function in the joints. In addition, PRP injections can help regenerate tissue growth and reduce inflammation and pain that is experienced. Come to us if you are in NYC.
