Athletes are specially trained or skilled in exercises, sports, or games requiring physical strength, agility, and stamina. Every year though, athletes endure the constant strain of playing sports 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).
