Arthritis can be successfully treated with A2M Therapy
There is a big buzz word circling around in the Orthopedic Surgeon world these days: A2M-Therapy. We have patients come in more frequently these days to ask about A2M-Therapy. I wanted to take a minute and explain what this therapy is, and how it can help with joint pain, such as arthritis.
A2M is a very advanced blood therapy. A2M stands for Alpha-2-macroglobulin. It’s a natural part of your own blood. Similar to PRP, A2M is utilized for joint issues – like arthritis. The difference here is, PRP is an inflammatory type of injection. A2M on the other side is completely desinflamatory.
A2M can prevent arthritis from progressing
The big study was done several years ago at Brown University. It showed A2M prevents arthritis progression. In theory, A2M can slow down or even stop the progression of osteoarthritis. In addition to the decrease in progression is the decrease in pain. I have used this on my own knees many times, and I have used in on over 50 patients. 95 percent of them saw almost immediate improvement after the injections.
In specific, A2M decreases the swelling, decreases the pain, and allows to increase activity level. Most importantly it allows renewed strengthening of the lower extremities like quads, hamstrings, calves to allow increased strength and endurance. And this will improve your life on a daily basis.
I am very confident due to my personal experience that this can positively impact someone with osteoarthritis. A2M, a natural inhibitor produced by the liver, protects cartilage from proteins known to cause osteoarthritis. Instead of being concentrated in joints to prevent arthritis, A2M molecules are disbursed throughout the body.
Arthritis is one of the world’s most common health problems. Aging and post-traumatic arthritis caused by injuries are commonly cited causes of the condition. Billions of patients suffer from debilitating arthritis pain in their backs, knees, and hands. Let’s stop the pain today. Call us and schedule an appointment for A2M TODAY.
