Alpha-2-macroglobulin and a possible alternative to medications or surgery in the treatment of osteoarthritis

Benefits for Arthritis and Back Pain.

We get lots of questions about A2M or Alpha-2-Macroglobulin, and what you should if you use this solution in place of steroids or other injections. Read all of our “Frequently Asked Questions” here, to learn more about what to expect if your physician prescribes A2M.

A2M is a naturally occurring molecule found in your blood that acts as a powerful protector against cartilage breakdown. A2M attaches to and removes the destructive enzymes, called proteases that damage cartilage cells and tissues in the joint or disc space. Unlike NSAIDS, narcotic agents, and steroid and cortisone injections, A2M injections offers a number of benefits for patients in pain. It helps rejuvenate, repairs and heals damaged tissue and cartilage, prevents or removes the root cause of painful swelling or inflammation, and contains growth factors and other regenerative factors. These benefits can be attributed to the fact that A2M injection is derived from your own blood, so it employs natural growth factors and bioactive proteins as a physiological agent to promote tissue growth and restoration of the affected joint.

A2M has been suggested to relieve the symptoms of arthritis and back pain. Arthritis is often a misunderstood because there are many forms of arthritis, with common symptoms like swelling, stiffness, pain, and decreased range of motion. Each A2M injection contains a concentrated dose 6x more than what already occurs in your blood naturally. When this level of A2M is placed directly into your joint or disc space, it can provide proteases associated with cartilage cell and tissue breakdown within the joint or disc space.

If you are suffering from back and leg pain or neck and arm pain, the answer to your problem hinges on two premises: correct diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Whether you live in Austin, Texas or surrounding areas, Precision Pain Consultants is your standard of excellence in spine pain management treatment.
