93 patients with juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA) were randomized to complete a home exercise program or added to a waiting list control group. At 12 weeks, there was significant improvement in walking ability, function scores, pain, and quality of life in the exercise group. The control group also demonstrated an improvement in pain, but changes in all other outcomes were not significant.
