VINCE BIEGEL, Linebacker
I first came here to be proactive versus reactive. I’m a big proponent on recovery, and in the game of football, you’re always trying to stay a step ahead of everybody else.
The care that I’ve received here has helped me to sharpen my edge. Playing the game of football, you’re going to have injuries and bumps and bruises along the way. And being able to have a great staff here to take care of you, to keep you on the field, keep you available, is awesome.
The combination of shockwave and laser is huge for relieving whatever type of discomfort you might have. I’ve experienced a huge difference, whether it’s stiffness, tightness, discomfort – I could go on and on about all the different things they have to get you feeling like you again. And doing it in a holisitic way, without having to take medication, or what have you. To make you feel better in a natural way is awesome.
What makes Integrated Pain Solutions special for me is that it’s not about football. When you come in here, you’re an individual. Doc, doesn’t necessarily look at you as a football player, he looks at you as a person.
I’ve built a great connection with all of the staff here. They’re family oriented, very personable. It’s been awesome for me to be able to come here and feel very comfortable. That’s what separates this place from other places that I’ve done recovery at and I’ve done training at. And that’s nice, it’s definitely that hometown Wisconsin feel that you always look for. Being a kid from Wisconsin, it’s nice to have that feeling and being able to have those kinds of people take care of you.
I’d tell athletes that Integrated Pain Solutions can be used as a tool, an added tool. What I mean by that is that you don’t have to wait for something to get to be an injury to do something about it. You can be proactive about things and address things before they get to be worse than they are or they become an injury.
12 year old to a professional football player, all of those athletes – or even a Dad or women in a local softball league or bar league – being able to have a place like this to take care of your body is very important.
