A2M Intra-Articular Treatment
Do you want to take advantage of the latest treatment solutions for arthritis pain? Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians proudly offers A2M treatment, a biologic intra-articular therapy that has revolutionized osteoarthritis treatment. We understand the painful symptoms, restricted activity and negative impact that arthritis can have on your quality of life. Our team of distinguished orthopedic surgeons and sports medicine specialists are pioneers in their field. In doing so, we use advanced biologics to treat cartilage damage and arthritis pain. We offer A2M, or alpha-2-macroglobulin, as an excellent treatment for osteoarthritis with proven results.
A2M (Alpha 2 Macroglobulin) Intra-Articular Treatment
Alpha-2-macroglobulin refers to the broad based protease inhibitor that has been shown to inhibit cartilage degeneration in arthritis. By using concentrated A2M, we can bind the enzymes that are causing cartilage breakdown in your joint. This revolutionary treatment for arthritis uses a patient’s own blood to concentrate the alpha-2-macroglobulin.
Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common health problems we face today, with nearly 30 million Americans suffering. A2M therapy uses proven scientific techniques and natural healing methods to successfully treat osteoarthritis at its source. It is used to prevent cartilage breakdown, promote tissue growth and support the overall restoration of your affected joint.
When non-surgical treatments are failing to give you long-term relief of your arthritis, A2M therapy can help. To find out if alpha-2-macroglobulin is right for you, please contact Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians today to schedule an appointment.
