We understand your need for effective pain relief, so we take a patient-oriented approach to solve your pain from its root cause. Here’s how integrative medicine supports a healthy, active lifestyle.
What is Integrative Medicine?
Pain relief is rarely straightforward. Finding what is best for you can take time, which is why you should plan on visiting a medically integrated practice. If you are looking to avoid surgery, there are many alternatives worth considering. Those may include integrative medicine, rejuvenating therapy sessions, growth factors, PRP, proteins HA, cytokines, and/or a process in which medicinal signaling cells are injected into injured or damaged areas to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal tissues. In patients who cannot rebuild as quickly as others, integrative medicine essentially works more quickly to signal cells to stimulate your body’s natural healing response. Even after one treatment, many of our patients report experiencing a reduction in their pain.
Integrated Health Solutions is one of the best places in Chicagoland for integrative medicine services due to our providers’ skill set being the best of the best. Lisa Kracinski, APRN has taken post-grad hours in the delivery of joint injections and is accredited through AANP (American Association of Nurse Practitioners). We always use diagnostic ultrasound in the delivery for visualization and accurate placement of the integrative treatment. In fact, a recent study stated that when diagnostic ultrasound is used it resulted in a 48% reduction in procedural pain, a 42% reduction in pain scores at outcome, 107% increase in the responder rate.

Once you’ve met our doctors at a consultation, we will plan an appointment for the procedure. Integrative medicine is a minimally invasive procedure that involves integrative injections. If you are sensitive to pain, just let us know. We can apply a topical numbing solution beforehand. The injection site may be slightly painful at first. However, most patients do not experience any significant discomfort.
Most patients experience a noticeable reduction in pain in a relatively short time. Usually, you can expect improvement within two months. Of course, everyone is different, so you may notice an improvement within a few weeks. Tissue regrowth can take longer or shorter depending on the severity of the injury.
