A2M is a new treatment for arthritis. A2M stands for Alpha-2-Macroglobulin, and it’s an injection therapy offered by Paradigm Wellness Medical Group.

Is your body experiencing arthritic and degenerative conditions? Osteoarthritis could be the source, and it is a condition that affects approximately 30 million Americans. A2M injection therapy could be a good solution and treatment for your arthritis, and Dr. Joe Cleaver of PWMG will be happy to offer consultation to see if you are a good candidate for this new arthritis treatment.

Alpha-2-Macroglobulin is naturally found in blood and plasma protein. According to Neurological Associates of West Los Angeles, A2M works by inhibiting 3 specific protein classes: Cytokines, Matrix Metalloproteinases, and ADAMTS (A Disintegrin And Metalloproteinase with ThromboSpondin) which degrade cartilage over time. A2M injections can inhibit the progression of Osteoarthritis by protecting cartilage from catabolic breakdown and inflammation. Therefore, A2M helps to prevent cartilage breakdown, promotes tissue growth, and supports cartilage restoration of the affected joints.

Osteoarthritis symptoms are commonly knee pain, back pain, Post Traumatic Osteoarthritis, or other joint conditions. The good news is that A2M is a non-surgical method of treatment that eases the pain and neutralizes the deterioration caused by Osteoarthritis. According to medical sources, an A2M injection therapy issued by Paradigm Wellness Medical Group can do the following:

  • Stop the breakdown of cartilage and prevent cartilage loss
  • Halt the progression of osteoarthritis
  • Reduce the pain caused by osteoarthritis
  • Improve joint function
  • Promotes tissue growth
  • Support the restoration of affected joint(s)

A2M is one of the many regenerative medicine therapies we utilize at PWMG. The other regenerative medicine therapies we offer include:
