Group Description

Support and information for parents/carers/siblings/sufferers of juvenile forms of Arthritis in Australia, and neighbouring areas.

If you are an adult who has lived with Arthritis from a young age, and want to share your experiences and expertise, this group is for you.

If you have been told that your child has been diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA), Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA), Juvenile Chronic Arthritis (JCA), Still's Disease, or any form of Arthritis that affects those under the age of 16 years, this group is for you.

If your child has Pauciarticular or Oligoarthritis, Polyarticular, Systemic, Psoriatic, Enthesitis-related, or other sub-types of Juvenile Arthritis, this group is for you.

And if you are feeling at a loss as to which type of Arthritis your child has, but know that they are suffering from joint pain, or something more than good ol' growing pains, this group is for you!

DISCLAIMER: This online support group is NOT run by the Arthritis Foundation; the information it contains is posted by parents, from various sources.

We strongly advise that you fully discuss any medical management of JIA with the treating doctor.

Contact your closest Australian Arthritis Foundation on 1800 011 041.
