Study Description

Brief Summary

Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) is one of the most common chronic childhood inflammatory diseases that is characterized by permanent joint inflammation attributable to immune system disturbance.

Detailed Description

Therapeutic exercises play an essential role as a non-pharmacologic treatment for children with JIA. It has effectively been used to reduce pain, improve muscular function, increase physical activity and promote quality of life in children with chronic musculoskeletal disorders. Clinical Pilates exercise is usually perceived as enjoyable activity by children with JIA, thereby, it can help them be more active for extended periods without causing discomfort while also allowing them to control their breathing and avoid becoming fatigued.

  • Outcome Measures

    Primary Outcome Measures

    1. Pain assessment [at baseline]

      measured using visual analog scale. A score of zero means no pain, while a score often means significant pain.

    2. Pain assessment [after 12 weeks]

      measured using visual analog scale. A score of zero means no pain, while a score often means significant pain.

    3. Cardiorespiratory fitness assessment [at baseline]

      assessed using electromagnetic cycle ergometer with electronic braking

    4. Cardiorespiratory fitness assessment [after 12 weeks]

      assessed using electromagnetic cycle ergometer with electronic braking

    Secondary Outcome Measures

    1. Functional ability assessment [at baseline]

      assessed using The Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire

    2. Functional ability assessment [after 12 weeks]

      assessed using The Childhood Health Assessment Questionnaire

    3. health-related quality of life [at baseline]

      assessed using The self-report Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory

    4. health-related quality of life [after 12 weeks]

      assessed using The self-report Pediatric Quality of Life Inventory
