Athletes are specially-trained and skilled in exercises, sports, or games requiring physical strength, agility and stamina. Every year though, athletes endure the constant strain of extreme physical exertion on their bodies. This may lead the body to suffer severe pain or cause injury to an athlete. Even in retirement, many athletes are still facing pain from old or unseen injuries. Making sure these retired athletes are carefully treated is a main focus at Illinois Pain Institute (IPI).
At Illinois Pain Institute, we are the official pain physicians of the Retired Professional Football Players Association of Illinois. We are dedicated to providing precise diagnosis and treatment for those with pain, including current and retired athletes. Beyond treating the symptoms, we strive to identify and fix the underlying cause of pain in order to restore the highest level of function and quality of life possible to any athlete in need. Our approach is tailored to fit individual needs with dignity and respect. IPI patients receive a highly personalized treatment plan, keeping the patient well-informed and involved in care decisions.
