What is 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 Osteoarthritis (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.
