Brief Summary:
The aim of this study is to compare the effectiveness of different exercises programs as 'Yoga' and 'Home Exercise' in Enthesitis Related Arthritis.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Enthesitis Related Arthritis Behavioral: Exercise Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Enthesitis is the localized inflammation in the attachments of muscles, ligaments, fascia to bone. Enthesitis related arthritis is a sub-form of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) and primarily lower extremities, spine, and sacroiliac joints. In the literature, exercise therapy is found beneficial to improve bone density, muscle strength and functionality without leading adverse effects in these children.

Recently yoga has emerged as a new exercise approach which consist of both physical an mental components to improve self-awareness and mindfulness. However, the effects of yoga did not investigated in JIA patients. The only evidence is a case study which reports improvements in pain and stiffness in a child with JIA.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Yoga Group
The yoga program will include breathing exercises, different postures, and meditation. The yoga will be performed in groups. The program will be supervised a physical therapist for two times in a week for eight weeks . A session will be fifty minutes (5-10 minutes: warming-up, 20-25 minutes: postures, 10-15 minutes: cooling down).
Behavioral: Exercise
The children with enthesitis related arthritis will be randomized into one of the exercise groups as yoga or home exercises and will perform the exercise program for 2 times a week for 8 weeks according to their groups.

Experimental: Home Exercise Group
Home exercise program will consist of trunk strengthening exercises. The patients will be asked to check the exercise days. Patients will be contacted with telephone once a week.
Behavioral: Exercise
The children with enthesitis related arthritis will be randomized into one of the exercise groups as yoga or home exercises and will perform the exercise program for 2 times a week for 8 weeks according to their groups.




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in 6 minute walking distance [ Time Frame: At baseline and 8 weeks later ]
    Six minute walking distance will be used for determining the functional status of lower extremity. The test will be performed in a 15-m corridor. The patient will be asked to walk as fast as possible without running. Standard instructions will be used for motivation. The patients will be allowed to stop if they want without stopping the chronometer. The total distance will be measured at the end of six minutes.

  2. Change in timed up and down stair test [ Time Frame: At baseline and 8 weeks later ]
    The patients will be asked to climb and descend 13 steps and the time will be recorded.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change in Trunk Muscle Endurance [ Time Frame: At baseline and 8 weeks later ]
    Side bridge test will be employed to measure the statical endurance of the trunk muscles. Right sides will be assessed while the participant will lose the straight position and the hip fell toward the ground. The seconds will be recorded.

  2. Change in Modified Schober Test [ Time Frame: At baseline and 8 weeks later ]
    The spina iliaca posterior superiors of the patients will be marked. 10 cm above and 5 cm below will be measured and be indicated. Then the patient will be asked to bend his/her trunk forward. And the distance between two points will be measured.

  3. Change in Lateral Flexion [ Time Frame: At baseline and 8 weeks later ]
    The patients will stand in front of a wall and will be asked to bend their trunks to the lateral sides. The tip of the third finger will be marked at first position (standing) and at the end of side bending. The distance between two points will be measured.

  4. Change in Quality of Life [ Time Frame: At baseline and 8 weeks later ]
    Pediatric Quality of Life (PedsQL) 3.0 Arthritis Module will be used to assess the quality of life of the patients and their parents.

  5. Change in Pain [ Time Frame: At baseline and 8 weeks later ]
    Numeric Rating Pain Scale will be used to assess pain severity.
