Recently, Dr. Curt Draeger was interviewed by WalkJogRun.net for a feature podcast about his experiences working with Olympians past and present, including decathletes Ashton Eaton (Gold, London 2012) and Trey Hardee (Silver, London 2012). Dr. Draeger also talks about how the care that he provides to elite athletes also translates to runners and others who are recovering from injuries or surgery.
Dr. Draeger also shares his philosophy of treating the body as a whole system, looking not only at the injured area, but also at the other parts of your body that support that area. Utilizing High Intensity Laser Therapy, he is able to treat the muscles, bones, ligaments, nerves, and joints and improve outcomes when compared to other traditional methods.
Dr. Draeger stresses that, whether you are someone that walks for exercise or an Olympic decathlete, two of the most important things that you can do to prevent injuries and help your body to perform at its highest level are to stretch and keep your body hydrated.
