Juvenile arthritis and pediatric rheumatic disease are two terms used to represent the wide range of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders that can manifest in children aged 16 and under. While the musculoskeletal system is affected by some pediatric rheumatic illnesses, joint symptoms may be minimal or non-existent. Rheumatic illnesses in children can also affect the gastrointestinal system, muscles, skin, and eyes. Pediatric rheumatologists at Mayo Clinic are specialists in diagnosing and managing autoimmune and autoinflammatory illnesses, as well as other recognized or suspected rheumatologic diseases, in children and adolescents. These conditions include, among others:

  • Raynaud's phenomenon
  • Sjogren's  syndrome
  • Kawasaki disease
  • Localized scleroderma (morphia)

Chiropody and podiatry are two terms for the same field of medicine that deals with the human foot. Podiatry, which refers to a collection of fluid in these bodily parts, is another name for the study of the foot and ankle. In most cases, the formation of liquid is not painful unless there is damage. Given gravity, swelling is frequently more noticeable in the lower regions of the body. Swelling in the feet and lower legs can occur for many different reasons. Often, enema occurs as a result of specific lifestyle variables, such as having a weight issue Weight gain can reduce blood flow, which causes the liquid to accumulate in the feet, legs, and lower legs. Long periods of sitting or standing Dormant muscles are unable to pump bodily fluids and travel toward the heart. Swelling can be brought on by the blood and water balance.

Among millions of people around the world, osteoarthritis is the most prevalent type of arthritis. Although osteoarthritis can harm any joint, the condition most frequently impacts the hands, knees, hips, and spine. The cartilage and other tissues within the joint must degenerate or undergo structural change for it to occur. Simple joint deterioration cannot explain why this occurs. The disintegration, which typically takes place gradually over time, can instead be brought on by changes in the tissue. The symptoms of osteoarthritis are the following;

  • Tenderness
  • Loss of flexibility
  • Grating sensation
  • Bone spurs
  • Swelling
