```As I said somewhere else we have Mathematica on one side
and on the other our mind. We can get the desirable results
if we bring mind&Mathematica together...

As we see using Integrate on Sin[x - 1]/Sqrt[x*(x - 2)] gives a result in terms
of MeijerG functions. But then N faces problems to get a numerical
estimation.
On the hand applying TrigToExp first gives a result again in terms of MeijerG
functions which is opposite of the correct result.

However a trivial subsitution results in a very simple result very
quickly (bear in mind that
in previous result containg MeijerG functions neither FullSimplify nor
FunctionExpand
provides any simplifications).

So...

(*Ins*)
int = Simplify[(Sin[x - 1]/Sqrt[x*(x - 2)])*Dt[x] /. x -> t + 1] /.
Dt[t] -> 1
Plot[int, {t, 1, 10}]
Timing[Integrate[int, {t, 1, Infinity}]]
{N[%[[2]],11], NIntegrate[int, {t, 1, Infinity}, Method ->
Oscillatory,WorkingPrecision->20,PrecisionGoal->10]}

(*Outs*)
Sin[t]/Sqrt[-1 + t^2]
Graphics
{0.672*Second, (1/2)*Pi*BesselJ[0, 1]}
{1.2019697153, 1.2019697153}
