Hi, I am making this post for my daughter. She was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) at the age of 8. One morning, when I woke up, I found her struggling to move her feet and I thought she hurt herself. I took her to a doctor and the doctor confirmed that she has got a flat foot.
She is on medication right now. It started with Enbrel, but it didn't seem to help. Now, she is taking Methotrexate and Humira.
My husband is planning to make her undergo a chiropractic treatment ( http://www.oakvillechiropractic.com/services/chiropractic/what-is-chiropractic/ ) from Burlington. Is this treatment effective? How serious is juvenile rheumatoid arthritis? Is JRA curable? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
