July 2, 2015: July is Juvenile Arthritis Awareness Month. The word “arthritis” might call to mind images of older adults, and with good reason – aging is a primary cause of osteoarthritis, which affects an estimated 27 million Americans.

In this episode of Move Forward Radio, a physical therapist will walk us through those types of juvenile arthritis and describe typical treatments for the disease.
