How Does A2M Work?
Alpha-2-Macrogobulin (A2M) is different from other treatments. It is a naturally occurring molecule found in your blood, which when administered in concentrated doses, acts as a powerful protector against cartilage breakdown. A2M attaches to and removes the destructive enzymes -proteases– which damage cartilage cells and tissues in the joint or disc space.
For the majority of patients with pain, their arthritic joint or disc space houses more destructive enzymes than the body can handle. Even though we have the A2M molecule already in our body, it is unable to enter the damage disc or joint space in large enough quantities due to its large size and complex structure. As a result, it is necessary to inject additional concentrated A2M into the affected area to restore balance and pain relief.
What Are the Expected Results?
To eliminate the underlying source of arthritic joint and back pain.
Are you a Candidate?
A simple test performed by your doctor can help determine if you are a good candidate for A2M Therapy. This test looks for a unique biomarker in your joint or disc space that indicates the presence of the destructive enzymes.
