ALPHA-2-MACROGLOBULIN (A2M)

"THE MIRACLE MOLECULE"

A2M - A Non-Surgical Treatment to Overcome Osteoarthritis

What is A2M (Alpha-2-Macroglobulin)?

Alpha-2-Macroglobulin or A2M is a naturally occurring molecule that is created in your liver and carried throughout your bloodstream to various organs. This protein has many different roles in order to help keep your body healthy. The A2M Injection is a breakthrough treatment that can capture and neutralize the destructive enzymes that damage cartilage cells and tissue of an arthritic joint – effectively halting the destruction of the cartilage seen and felt in Osteoarthritis.

Approximately 27 million Adult Americans are Afflicted with Osteoarthitis (OA)

Osteoarthritis (OA) is a common joint disease in which involves the “wear and tear” of the joints cartilage, ligaments, joint lining, and bone. OA is characterized by the breakdown of the cartilage (the cushion between the ends of each bone), deterioration of the ligaments and tendons as well as various degrees of inflammation of the joint lining. Symptoms of Osteoarthritis include pain and stiffness in the joint, cracking or grinding noises through joint movement and decreased function of the joint.

 

WHY A2M INJECTIONS?

An A2M Injection has a significant amount of benefits compared to other osteoarthritis treatments such as steroid injections and medications. 

As other OA treatments will help the symptoms temporarily, A2m injections help rejuvenate, repair, and heal damaged tissue and cartilage, prevents or removes the root cause of the painful swelling and inflammation, and contains growth factors as well as other regenerative factors that aid in the restoration and rejuvenation of the joint – making A2M a more permanent solution to OA. 

The A2M injection contains a concentrated dose of the molecule that is 6X more than what already occurs in your body naturally. When this level of A2M is directly injected into the arthritic joint or disc space, it can provide the necessary amount needed to bind and remove the destructive enzymes that are damaging the cartilage and tissues.

"The docs here are top-notch! Whenever I have any problems or concerns, they're just a phone call away. I've even been able to get in to see a doctor the same day I call! That's almost unheard of! The fact that Dr. Lunquist and Smith have a therapeutic masseuse on standby, as well as Dr. Smith's ability to perform needling and acupuncture, is of great benefit. The various amounts of modalities, as well as the quality of this pain management clinic, is something you would expect to see more in an inpatient hospital-type setting, not in a standard size doctor's office, and since they have just opened a Surprise office, it will allow them to serve a wider range of patients and most importantly help more people! I've been in chronic pain, due to a myriad of injuries and surgeries, for the past six years. Since coming to see the folks at Active Life Physical Medicine and Pain Center, I have hope. Hope that one day I won't have to take any medication for pain, hope that one day my pain levels will be so low I'll forget about hurting and start living, hope that one day I may have the ability to have mostly good days with just a few not-so-good days, hope that one day I'll be able to return to work and not worry about finances, hope that one day I will be me again. I've even started training for my first 5k in preparation! My goal is to be able to run in the P.F. Chang's Rock 'n Roll half-Marathon in 2018 and the full Marathon in 2019, and Active Life is helping me get there. If you're going through pain, pain from car accidents, work-related injuries, WHATEVER, come see Dr. Lunquist and Smith at Active Life,...

"I’ve been competing in strength athletics since the age of 15 and have been competing at a professional level for the last 5 years. It wasn’t until 2014 that I needed to seek treatment for a patella tendon tear that I received while competing at the Commerce World’s Strongest Man in China. I had only heard about PRP treatments and the great benefits that it could have on ones injuries, that’s when I found Dr. Lundquist at Active Life Physical Medicine & Pain Center in Avondale, Arizona. To this day I have received Orthovisc injections to both knees along with PRP. I have also received PRP treatments for muscle tears and other tendon tears that I’ve obtained while competing at World’s Strongest Man. I feel that without Dr. Lundquist knowledge in sports medicine and PRP that I would have had to have surgery. The PRP treatments have played a huge role in keeping me at an elite level. I have and will continue to refer other athletes for their injuries to Dr. Lundquist.​"
