Chronic pain can impact anyone, no matter your history or occupation. It can make you feel like you’re watching life from the sidelines.

Here at Integrated Pain Solutions, we’ve been helping a wide variety of patients overcome their chronic pain, including elite professional athletes. But you don’t have to be an athlete to benefit from Integrated Pain Solutions; read on to learn how you can find relief using the same top-of-the-line treatments we provide to the pros!


Meet Dr. Curt: Chronic Pain Specialist

Dr. Curt Draeger knows a thing or two about pain. After 35 years working in chiropractic care and rehabilitation, there isn’t much he hasn’t seen when it comes to people looking for pain relief. When he began using Low-Level Laser Therapy to treat pain in athletes, he realized the healing potential therapeutic lasers could provide. Ever since, he and his team have continued to develop the next generations of therapeutic lasers and find new ways to achieve results.

Just before the Athens 2004 Olympics, Dr. Curt was approached to treat Team USA’s decathletes. Since then, he’s treated decathletes and heptathletes in nearly every summer games, including Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio de Janeiro 2016. His stellar reputation in the sports medicine community has made him a top choice for other professional athletes, too, including major league baseball players and professional football players.


Pain in Professional Sports

Research indicates that, in the general population, between 35% and 51% of people face some degree of daily pain. In the athletic population, that number jumps significantly, up to 74.5%. For many of these athletes, debilitating pain doesn’t just hamper their quality of life; it can destroy entire careers. Professional athletes cannot afford to suffer from chronic pain, and treating it is one of the highest priorities in sports.

That’s why, when an athlete’s career is on the line, they turn to Dr. Curt. Many elite players have had their pain successfully treated at Integrated Pain Solutions, including:

  • David Bakhtiari, Offensive Tackle
  • Aaron Jones, Running Back
  • Rashan Gary, Outside Linebacker
  • Devon Williams, Relief Pitcher
  • Ashton Eaton, Olympic Gold Medalist
  • Dan O’Brien, Olympic Gold Medalist
  • Sam Hauser, Small Forward
