Your body has incredible healing and recovery abilities that science has just begun to explore and tap into. No longer are surgery and drugs the only methods of treatment for knee, joint, and arthritic pain. At Dr. Darr’s clinic, we are at the forefront of orthobiologic medicine and aim to share as much of it with the local community that we serve. As a result, we are committed to helping patients heal and recover with as little downtime and risk as possible. One of the latest breakthroughs that we are proud to offer is A2M injections.
A2M injections may sound like a drug produced in a lab, but the underlying principles of A2M come directly from your own body! A2M or Alpha-2-Macroglobulin is a molecule found in your blood that is a key component in helping to prevent cartilage in your joints from breaking down. Cartilage is important in the maintenance of your joints and any disintegration can lead to pain and weakness. What we do is extract a small amount of your blood, concentrate the amount of A2M found within it and inject it back into your body’s problem areas. This dose boosts the amount of A2M up to 6 times more than normal, giving your joints much-needed prevention to stop things from getting worse. A2M injections can reduce inflammation and pain and help you heal your joints. Come visit us at Dr. Kevin Darr to find out if you are an ideal candidate for A2M injection therapy.
