In this presentation, we will address childhood arthritis, one of the most common forms of chronic disease in children. We will specifically explain the different kinds of childhood arthritis. Participants will learn about the diagnosis process, what differentiates the disease from other types of arthritis that affect adults, and will learn about the potential complications of childhood arthritis. We will offer an overview of available pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical treatments. Physical therapist Michèle Geoffrion will discuss the importance of the multidisciplinary approach and will discuss the role of physical therapy in disease management.
