Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol
What is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common form of arthritis. some people call it degernative joint disease or "wear and tear" arthritis. It occurs most frequently in the hands, hips, and knees.
With OA, the cartilage within a joint begins to break down and the underlying bone begins to change. These changes usually develop slowly and get worse over time. OA can cause pain, stiffness, and swelling. In some cases it also causes reduced function and disability; some people are no longer able to do daily tasks or work.

What makes us different than other OA Clinics?
You may have seen other knee pain offers floating around claiming "Rapid Relief in just one treatment", while that may be true but the results just don't last.
Using a state of the art Fluoroscopy (guided image) Machine we can successfully inject the viscosupplement into the capsule of the knee, creating that long lasting relief. (with 3 to 5 treatments) While using Lidocaine to keep pain at a minimum to our patients.
Bracing, while it may seem dauting, patients have reported feeling greater stability within the first couple days. By wearing our semi custom brace we are able to open up the space in your knee to allow the viscosupplement not only cushion the joint but naturally allow your body to produce more of the hyaluronic acid creating that long lasting pain relief.
Physical Therapy, you may have seen physical therapists in your past. Dr. Olivia will study your past history and take different approaches not only strengthen but correct habits you may not have noticed causing pain.

The best part: This is all housed under the same roof. Our clinic is multifaceted, exam, bracing, injections, physical therapy all in one place.
(Optional: Chiropractic, having a misalignment in your spine can cause more than just back pain. Irritated nerves caused by a misalignment creates a disconnection between the brain and the body. By using the Prone Specific technique it is very gentle but effective way of adjusting the spine because it is so specific to what vertebra is moving instead of getting everything to “pop or crack”.

By using our 3 prong approach we have found an 85% success rate with our program.
Not everyone nor every knee is the same. Having a one on one consultation with our providers we will provide a custom care plan fit to you and your needs. We use what is called Hyaluronic Acid Injections or lubrication injections into the osteoarthritic knee(s). Your body naturally makes this acid but over time the levels found have decreased. Studies have found it may stimulate the body to produce more of its hyaluronic acid which would further cushion the joint
Custom Fit Unloading Brace. In addition to in clinic services it is important to provide home care remedies that can extend the positive healing process beyond the clinical setting. We provide each patient with a custom unloading brace. This brace has been shown to reduce the pressure on the cartilage of the knee and knee capsule allowing the hyaluronic acid to bond with the body resulting in both faster and longer lasting positive outcomes.
Physical Therapy combined with injections and bracing involves providing a custom therapy plan to fit your lifestyle and goals. Combining these 3 approaches has given our patients the relief they are looking for and getting them back to doing the things they love!
