Most parents when told that their child has arthritis find it hard to believe it, as arthritis is regarded an adult's disease. This however is not true. Arthritis can affect children as well. Children with arthritis often find it difficult to cope up with the disease and treatment therefore has to be aimed at restoring the functional activity of the child such as going to school, getting educated, holding jobs, raising families and so on. It is also vital to ensure that joint and bone function, vision are preserved to the maximum possible extent.
