Body Pain Treatments

We have arthritis treatment options at both our Boise and Caldwell locations. There is over 100 different types of arthritis, but all relate to the informal way to refer to joint pain or joint disease. It is the most common among women and occurs more frequently as people get older. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, such as knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Some types of arthritis also affect the heart, eyes, lungs, kidneys and skin as well as the joints.

This condition is a problem with the peripheral nervous system. These are the nerves that branch out from your brain and spinal cord and travel to all of the other parts of your body.

Early diagnosis and treatment offer the best chance for controlling your symptoms and preventing further damage to your peripheral nerves.

We can provide this steroid injection at both our Boise and Caldwell clinics. This injection procedure is performed to relieve pain caused by arthritis in the sacroiliac joint where the spine and hip bone meet. The steroid medication can reduce swelling and inflammation in the joint.

This condition is an irritation or compression of one or more nerve roots in the lumbar spine. Because these nerves travel to the hips, buttocks, legs and feet, an injury in the lumbar spine can cause symptoms in these areas. Sciatica may result from a variety of problems with the bones and tissues of the lumbar spinal column.


Osteoarthritis, also referred to as OA, is the most commonly occurring type of arthritis. According to the Arthritis Foundation, over 30 million Americans have been diagnosed with OA. It has a gradual onset and generally develops around the age of 50 and up. OA is a disease of the joints, affecting the entire joint and involving the cartilage's deterioration.


Rheumatoid arthritis also referred to as RA, is an autoimmune disease that attacks the joints. It affects an estimated 1.5 million people in the US and currently does not have an identified cause. Rheumatoid arthritis causes inflammation of the joint lining (synovium), leading to damage to the joints. As with many autoimmune diseases, RA comes with flare-ups like waves of worsening symptoms that can come and go.
