LOS ANGELES, Aug. 31, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Golf legend Fred Couples, who won the prestigious PGA Senior Players Championship on Sunday, despite being sidelined on-and-off for the past five years with a debilitating arthritic back condition, revealed that the secret to his success was a little known anti-inflammatory treatment program for chronic joint and arthritic pain conditions called Regenokine, previously available only in Germany.
Couples, 52, won his first senior major title, closing with an even-par 71 to match John Cook (70) at 11 under on Westchester Country Club's West Course at Harrison, New York. Couples, twice named PGA Player of the Year in 1991 and 1992, joined Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd as the only players to win the Players Championship on the regular and senior tours.
"I had the Regenokine treatment, and after just a few weeks I was able to resume my regular playing schedule and I feel fantastic. I have been suffering with back problems for many years, and this treatment has really decreased my pain and allowed me to forget about my back and focus on playing my best. I am feeling better than I have in 10 years," said Couples.
The Regenokine program uses proteins from the patient's own blood as a safe, effective treatment for osteoarthritis and back pain. The procedure was invented by Dr. Peter Wehling, an orthopedic surgeon and professor of medicine in Germany. The procedure was combined with a lifestyle regimen created by Dr. Chris Renna, who heads LifeSpan medicine (www.lifespanmedicine.com), a leading integrative medical practice, in Los Angeles, and first introduced the Regenokine treatment program earlier this year.
The story of Regenokine, including its initial resistance by the medical establishment, is told by Wehling and Renna in their new book "The End of Pain: The Regenokine Program – The Game-Changing New Treatment Against Osteoarthritis and Back Pain." Prior to its introduction into the U.S., the Regenokine program was used by thousands of individuals in Europe including Pope John Paul II and has since been used by a legion of pro athletes, celebrities, politicians and business magnates.
In his introduction to the book, Christopher Evans, Ph.D., D.Sc, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Harvard Medical School, says "the success of the Regenokine program speaks for itself and it will continue to thrive."
