“I was being slowed by a low back problem. Now everything is improved … emotional, physical, increased activity … I can actually rotate my hips from right to left nearly pain free. It’s been 5 years since I could do that. I went home and made dinner for my family last night. I couldn’t do that before the treatment.” – Steve

“When I started treatment my pain was a constant six on a scale of one to ten. After my treatment today it was a ZERO…AMAZING! I had more energy last night than I had in a long time.” – Jean

“It’s such a beautiful clinic, so conducive to healing. After treatment I was actually able to do full yoga stretches without soreness, which is something I haven’t done in a long time. I can’t wait to see how I will do after a swim. Thank you for being committed to making life better for people like me.” – Christine

“I have found Dr. Draeger’s philosophy to be one of education and improving the quality of life for people. I will work through the pain and continue to maintain my fitness. When you have daily pain such as I do, the opportunity to decrease it even by half has been a tremendous relief and blessing. I have renewed energy and I feel younger and look younger!”– C.B.

“I feel more mobile now, than ever….and I have more energy. I would consult with Dr. Curt Draeger before having surgery done – it could be a viable alternative.” – Jean J. from Weston, WI

“The benefits well outweigh the cost of treatment.  Before going through Dr. Curt’s program, I felt like a 90 year old woman.  My pain was constant, I wore it like a cloak. After treatment, things completely changed. I had no pain. It was amazing!  My range of motion, energy level, flexibility, and quality of life improved tremendously. I felt like a new person- pain free and drug free. This has been an answer to my prayers” – C.B. from Mosinee, WI

“What makes Dr. Draeger so good is that it’s clear he has a genuine concern for your condition and the knowledge to help you improve that condition. He seems so quick to figure out what’s wrong and then he knows how to fix it. When you combine that knowledge with the sincerity of his manner, I don’t know that you can get any better. I was really impressed…very impressed!” – Rudy

“I’ve been to doctors all over the place and no one has ever been as complete or as knowledgeable as Dr. Draeger. I’ve had a side problem for over 2 years and no one’s ever known what it was.  Then I went to see him, he figured it out, fixed it, and it’s gone!” – Rachel

“I could tell the difference in my body right away. I can wake up in the morning and say ‘Is this what normal people feel like?’ I feel great!  You get used to the chronic pain so much that it’s just part of you. You wear it every single day and it just becomes very taxing on your brain and your mental status. Now I feel like 200lbs has been lifted off me. I want to continue with that. You don’t want that pain to come back because you just feel so… released!” – Christine

“(After the treatment), I felt looser from head to toe! I was able to play with my kids for longer periods of time without pain. I feel good!” – J.K.
