Don’t Let Pain Keep You From Playing the Game You Love

Do you wake up with aching joints?

If you do, you’re not alone. One of the biggest complaints I get in my practice comes from patients who are struck down by joint pain.

A lot of them came to Florida when they retired so they could play golf year-round.

“Dr. Sears,” they say to me, “I refuse to let pain keep me from playing the game I love.”

Some of the most common injuries we treat at the Sears Institute are torn rotator cuffs.

Often, when these patients come to see me, they’ve tried all the conventional treatments – steroid injections, NSAIDs, physical therapy – but nothing lasts.

Many of them were told by their doctors that surgery was their only option.

Now, my patients are intelligent people. They’ve researched surgical outcomes.

They know that rotator cuff surgery rarely works.

And it rarely results in less pain.1,2

But did you know that 60% of the time, rotator cuff tears don’t heal correctly after an operation, especially if you’re over the age of 60?3,4

I give my patients options that don’t require ineffective surgeries.

Including an enhanced PRP therapy protocol you can only get at the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine. More on what sets our PRP protocol apart in a moment…

Jumpstart Your Healing Process Immediately

PRP is the same treatment that has helped world-class athletes like golfer Tiger Woods, tennis players Rafael Nadal and Maria Sharapova, NFL quarterback Tom Brady, and soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo get back in the game.

And it gets my patients back on the golf course, playing the game they love, within months.

I’m never surprised at how well my patients do. I’ve successfully treated chronic pain in thousands of patients using PRP.

It’s a lifesaver for people suffering from debilitating joint pain.

Studies show it’s effective for arthritis… inflamed tendons… torn muscles… injured ligaments… knee osteoarthritis… damaged joint cartilage… and torn rotator cuffs.

One study looked at the results of rotator cuff damage treated with PRP compared to conventional steroid injections.

The patients who got PRP had significant improvements in their range of motion and pain level after three months. After one year, only three patients in the PRP group had to undergo surgery for the condition.

But 48 patients who received steroids required surgical intervention.

As you probably know, PRP uses platelets — colorless blood cells that help your blood clot — to rebuild a damaged tendon or cartilage.

PRP doesn’t just relieve pain. It jumpstarts the healing process.

That’s because platelets contain hundreds of proteins called “growth factors.” The natural growth factors in PRP can actually regenerate injured tissues. PRP has five to 10 times more platelets than whole blood. And the additional growth factors from all those platelets help heal wounds at least two to three times faster than normal. 5

Here’s What Sets Our Therapy Apart

But at the Sears Institute, we go one step further and provide enhanced PRP therapy.

We use a combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and platelet-poor plasma (PPP) that capture a higher concentration of plasma proteins, called alpha 2 macroglobulin (a2M), and growth factors.

Using a2M drastically changes the biochemistry of a joint. It stops disease progression by binding to and removing cartilage-destroying inflammatory proteins. This provides long-term relief from pain.

But here’s what truly sets us apart from every other PRP provider in the country…

Each patient receives pre- and post-optimal platelet and stem cell activation using:

  1. Intramuscular glutathione injection
  2. Intravenous (IV) nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD)
  3. Hyperbaric oxygen before and after the PRP procedure

This triple-punch is guaranteed to improve clinical outcomes.

As a regular reader, you know that HBOT therapy is one of the most effective regenerative therapies that exist today.

HBOT provides lifesaving treatment for numerous chronic conditions, ranging from diabetes, stroke, and spinal cord injuries to Alzheimer’s, arthritis, and heart disease. And so many more.

We are the only clinic that combines enhanced PRP therapy with hyperbaric oxygen to provide up to 800% more healing power.

When you use HBOT and PRP therapy together, you’re ramping up the number of activated stem cells in your bloodstream. These then go to work with “turbo-charged” healing power on the parts of your body that need repair.

In one study, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania gave a series of 20 HBOT treatments to 18 people.

Following just one two-hour treatment, stem cells increased by 50%.

After the full 20 HBOT treatments, stem cells increased by 800%.6

HBOT nurtures the stem cells so they can go where they need and increase your healing potential. Getting you back in the game that much faster…

Are You Ready To Put Your Pain Behind You?

Enhanced PRP therapy is straightforward.

It’s a very minimally invasive, same-day procedure that takes only a few hours. Most patients report little to no discomfort.

Are you ready to talk about ending your pain and reclaiming your life using our enhanced PRP therapy? If you are, please call 561-784-7852 , so we can set up your appointment.

To Your Good Health,
