Let’s face it — our bodies wear out.

There are things you can do to prevent it, but all of our joints will eventually break down as we age. At Integrated Pain Solutions, we’re here to help you manage chronic pain, ensuring that no matter what you’re going through, you know you have the professional assistance of a team that puts your needs first. Backed by years of experience and a passion for helping people considering joint replacement, our top priority is to ensure that you get the personalized care you deserve.

Why Do Joints Wear Out?

The primary reason joints wear out is because of something called cartilage. It’s a semi-soft material that works as a cushion between joints. Over time, due to factors such as mechanical compensation or uneven pressure across the joints, these cushions wear down. If they wear down completely, there is nothing separating the bones, at which point it is known as “bone on bone.”

What You Can Do About Joint Pain

We hear the phrase “I’ve been told I’m bone on bone” on a daily basis — but 9 times out of 10, the patients who tell us this aren’t truly bone on bone. They still have cartilage left between their joints which is enough cartilage to work with. Because, you see, just because a joint is causing constant pain doesn’t mean that it’s completely worn out. So even if there’s hardly any cartilage left, we can help.

How Integrated Pain Solutions Can Help

We can help by correcting the problem that caused the cartilage to wear down in the first place, slowing it’s progress. If left untreated, the relatively simple wear and tear problem can lead to a vicious chronic pain cycle. When a chronic pain cycle establishes itself, a joint replacement might not be enough to get you out of pain.

Put Your Trust In Our Experience

We’ll be up front and honest with you if you truly need a joint replacement, we will let you know. But if not, then we’ll recommend a care plan that suits your specific needs so that we can keep your original equipment (your original knee, hip, shoulder, etc.) as long as possible. Because no artificial joint can compete with what we’re born with, even if it’s worn out.

Getting Your Health Back

You’re looking for relief, Integrative Pain Solutions is focused on getting you out of pain.We work together to develop the most effective strategy for your individual needs through non-surgical techniques such as soft tissue mobilization, chiropractic care, acupuncture, specific strengthening exercises, physical therapy and even injections. Unlike a traditional doctor who might only treat one aspect of the body at a time (like an orthopedist or a chiropractor) we are trained in more advanced techniques of integrated pain solutions.

Advanced Techniques of Integrated Pain Solutions

With more than 30 years of advanced training in many different therapies, we help patients suffering from issues with their back and spine, shoulders, arms, knees, legs, head, neck, and nerves every day. Integrated Pain Solutions in Mosinee and Antigo understands chronic pain and the impairment it may have on your daily routine. We understand that when bending down to tie your shoe becomes difficult, as well as walking up the stairs, you will begin looking for a solution to get you back to your daily routine.

Unfortunately, in this day and age, many view chronic pain as untreatable, but we're willing to take the time to listen to your needs in order to come up with an approach to treatment that works for you. The pain specialists at our practice have spent years developing a treatment strategy that addresses the underlying cause of persistent discomfort. The type of High Intensity Laser Therapy used in our clinic is the result of years of study, development, and breakthroughs developed by Dr. Curt Draeger himself. With laser therapy, in addition to our other treatment modalities, we have achieved an 80% success rate for enhancing function and significantly reducing chronic pain symptoms.

You don't have to live with chronic pain, and we're on a mission to help you get your health back.
