Why is Omaha Integrated Health the best choice for arthritic pain treatment?

Our modern arthritis pain treatments deliver potent relief to damaged joints. Our state-of-the-art fluoroscopy machine can see where the joint has degenerated and deliver injectable pain relief. Plus, our patients love how Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP), or Steroid injections provide rapid pain relief, even to over-used and stressed joints, for the most part. HA is our primary treatment method because it is made of the same fluid your body already makes to cushion joints and offers minimal downtime. It also stimulates your body to produce your own HA, making it your best shot for pain relief.

Why Fluoroscopy?

Fluoroscopy is a real-time X-ray machine that reveals joint damage better than any other technology. This critical diagnostic tool allows us to diagnose and treat patients quickly. The advantages of using Fluoroscopy include:

  • Obtains a better view of bone, cartilage, and fluid sacs.
  • Unlike MRIs and CTs, we can reposition the body for the best view.
  • Provides a complete picture of joint degeneration, helping patients avoid surgery.
  • Captures the real-time movement of the joints with 2D and 3D imaging.
  • Offers patients pinpoint accuracy in treating the problem joint.

More About Arthritis and our Treatments

While osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and affects joints frequently overused, chronic auto-immune arthritis such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) or Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA) also impacts day-to-day activities. Severe arthritis results in chronic pain, decreased daily activities, and may even cause lasting joint damage. No matter what type of arthritis you have or your age – our treatments help you get back to living your best life.

The joints typically affected by arthritis that we treat include:

  • Knees
  • Lower Back
  • Hips
  • Ankles
  • Shoulders

Joints that have experienced severe trauma or recurrent stress due to repetitive work and movement may also develop arthritis. Find out if you have arthritis by contacting our office for an appointment to discuss your joint pain today.

Since severe arthritis results in chronic pain, limits daily activities, and may potentially cause permanent joint damage, assessing your arthritis before it becomes severe is vital.

During our examination, we discuss how arthritis affects your daily function and ask about your history and past medical history, including your diet. Eating well, staying active, and understanding how your lifestyle may affect your joint inflammation helps reduce debilitating pain.

Regardless of the type of arthritis you have, our professional medical staff will perform blood tests and imaging scans (using our fluoroscopy machine, MRIs, or CTs). Then we’ll develop your treatment plan to relieve the painful stiffness caused by joint damage.

After we’ve done a thorough examination, performed blood tests, and diagnostic imaging, we will book you for treatment. Most patients prefer hyaluronic acid injections, but we may choose other options depending on your insurance requirements and your individual situation.

Many patients ask if the shots hurt. The short answer is yes. Typically, we choose hyaluronic acid injections, which help lubricate the joints, allow for smoother movement, reduce joint stiffness, and help prevent pain. It also boosts the body’s production of HA, which diminishes as we age. As a result, most people require fewer shots than traditional steroid treatments and experience faster pain relief.

So, compared to surgery and recovery, or ongoing arthritis pain, this little pinprick of hyaluronic acid induces minor pain while delivering maximum results. In addition, some patients say the shots provide longer-lasting relief since 75% of patients who undergo surgery may still feel pain afterward.

This minimally invasive treatment only takes about 30 minutes to complete, and most patients only need 2-4 shots per year. The numbing spray we use on the administration point also helps decrease discomfort and pain.

So, if you have arthritis and have questions about our injectable treatment, please contact our office to discuss this procedure. Let us help you live your best life today.

Artificial hyaluronic acid is derived from the rooster comb, hence the name “chicken” or “rooster” shot. We typically only use non-avian hyaluronic acid to avoid potential allergic reactions unless your insurance plan only allows the avian version.
