As a Bassmaster Elite Series Angler, I push my body to the limit! With 26 years invested at the top level of professional fishing, something started hurting in my elbows. The pain was so intense that I could not give a proper handshake or even pick up a glass of tea using my right arm.

Surgery was not a reasonable alternative due to the fact I was in the middle of the Bassmaster Elite Series season. It was the only solution according to multiple Orthopedic Groups I consulted. Their advice was to undergo a tendon surgery to severe and reattach the epicondalateral tendon. At this point, I had to look for alternate ideas.

Platelet Rich Plasma(PRP) injections became the alternate solution! Non-invasive and quick recovery were on my mind. A consultation at IMAC Regeneration Centers gave me the confidence to choose this procedure over conventional surgery. I was able to continue on the Bassmaster Elite Series that season and qualify for the Angler of the Year Championship! This allowed me to achieve a lifelong goal on the Bassmaster Elite Series of crossing into the $1,000,000 dollar club of Bassmaster earnings. This would not have been possible without alternate therapy choices from IMAC!
