Fighting Juvenile Arthritis with Liquid Glucosamine
Arthritis Joint Pain Relief for Kids with Arthritis
April 03, 2013
We spend a lot of time discussing arthritis joint pain relief in adults here at Synflex. But adults aren’t the only ones who suffer from arthritis. Young people suffer too. There are just under 300,000 people under the age of 18 who suffer from Juvenile Arthritis (JA).
JA is complicated. There are many types of JA, including three types of rheumatoid arthritis:
- Polyarticular—affects five or more joints, typically knees, writsts, and ankles as well as other joint bearing joints
- Pauciarticular—affects four or more joints and usually affects one side of the body, may cause eye inflammation
- Systemic—affects small joints in hands and feet
Treatment, of course, is mostly pain management. NSAIDs are the easy solution for arthritis pain relief, even with children. Managing the pain allows life to continue. We, of course, know that pain killers are also liver killers. They damage adult bodies and side effects can be brutal. Imagine what they’re like on a little person.
Liquid glucosamine is an option. Like with adults, Synflex liquid glucosamine supplements rebuilds in cartilage in children like it does in adults, which ultimately may help provide arthritis joint pain relief. Just make sure you check with your doctor first.
