A New Technique For Treating Juvenile Arthritis

A physician from Philadelphia has come out with a new technique for treating the children who suffer from arthritis. The technique when used will ease the pain and also prevents deformity.

Interventional radiologist Kevin Baskin of Children's Hospital outlined his technique for injecting steroids into the ankle joint of juvenile arthritis patients at the Society of Interventional Radiology's 31st Annual Scientific Meeting, reports foodconsumer.org.

"With this image-guided technique we now have an accurate way to treat this disease in its earliest stage," Baskin said. "We hope to be able to alleviate pain and to prevent irreversible deformity before the bones fuse together."

Baskin explained that imaging allows doctors to deliver the medicine precisely into the affected, inflamed joint.

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis is the new comprehensive term that replaces the American term of juvenile rheumatoid arthritis.
