1 In Every 4 Americans Suffer With Knee Pain. Even worse, their doctors are using the same fuzzy images used to see babies in the womb to make an ``accurate`` diagnosis as to the cause of that pain. Are you ready for a better way?
The goal of our office is to provide knee pain relief without painful surgery, the long recovery time, and the high expense that comes with it. Our treatment programs are based on the latest innovations in medical science, are FDA-approved, and are often more effective than other non-surgical options.
What makes us the best choice for non-surgical knee pain treatment?
We offer the latest in Advanced Therapies for Non-Surgical Knee Pain Treatment. In fact, many of our patients experience relief from injections administered using Omaha Integrated Health’s groundbreaking fluoroscopy machine, combined with Hyaluronic Acid (HA), Steroid, or Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. Since your knee already has hyaluronic acid in a sack that surrounds, binds, and protects the knee, HA injections are our preferred treatment method. They often stimulate existing cartilage, offering increased joint lubrication, quick treatment time, minimal downtime, and fewer side effects. Additionally, our patients love how fast the injections work to deliver pain relief in most cases.
What is Fluoroscopy?
Fluoroscopy is a real-time X-ray machine that sees the damaged part of the knee better than any other technology, allowing us to provide critical diagnostic information and treatment. The benefits of using Fluoroscopy include:

Frequently Asked Questions
The short answer is yes. In our treatment, we inject hyaluronic acid into the joints to lubricate them. Hyaluronic acid is what allows smooth movement and prevents pain. As we age and as our joints accumulate trauma, the cells in the joints produce less and less of it. The injection not only alleviates the pain but stimulates the cells to create even more.
So, while the hyaluronic acid injection isn’t 100% pain-free, this little pinprick is the least amount of pain possible. It’s practically nothing compared to surgery and recovery, or even just continuing to live with your chronic knee pain. Our treatment also ensures longer-lasting relief; 75% of the patients that undergo surgery may still feel pain afterward.
Our treatment is fast, easy, and minimally invasive. We also use a numbing spray on the area to decrease the sensations even further. If this is one of your concerns, listen as Dr. Chris breaks down everything you want to know about our Knee Pain treatment.

Your initial visit will take approximately 1/2 hour. Most other visits are about the same or less.
The “chicken” or “rooster” shot is referring to artificial hyaluronic acid derived from the rooster comb. Unless your insurance plan allows you to use no other, we typically only use non-avian hyaluronic acid to avoid any possible allergic reactions commonly associated with avian-derived products.
While we don’t recommend heavy lifting or strenuous activity unless otherwise directed, you may return to normal activities the same day.
