“Dr. Tom Lehman’s experience and compassion are evident on every page of this book, and they help guide the reader—child, parent, and healthcare professional alike – through the world of childhood arthritis. This book is an absolute gem written with a single goal in mind: improve the lives of kids with arthritis.” -- Jack Klippel, M.D. President and CEO of the Arthritis Foundation
“Dr. Lehman has given parents and families of children with
arthritis the first book that speaks to the parent and child as equals. His book explains the illnesses, the
medications, the lab tests, and the disease course in simple, understandable
lay language and givens them valuable insight into how a pediatric
rheumatologist thinks. Bravo!”-- Charles Spencer, M.D.,

It’s not just
A guide to childhood muscle, bone, and joint pain,
rheumatic diseases and the latest treatments
It has always been a frustration trying to answer the many questions I have received from people over the web. I can’t take the time and give them the detail I would like to. I have to take care of my patients. This book is a distillation of my experience answering questions for parents and health professionals over 25 years of practice. If you want to know about the diseases, the tests, the medications, or how to be sure you are getting the best care– If you are the family member of a child with joint pains, this book will give you the answers. If you are a general physician, a pediatrician, or a nurse who cares for children with these diseases it will answer many of the questions families ask you, and you can recommend it to them. It will also answer many of your questions about what shots to give, what precautions to take, and the other questions families, pediatricians, and other health care providers have asked me over the years.
