FIND A GREATER
Through a patented and proprietary process , APIC A2M is isolated and concentrated from your blood to biologically clean out your joint or disc space and provide a healthy enviroment for repair.
How APIC A2M WORKS
For the majority of patients with pain, their arthritic joint or disc space houses more destructive enzymes than the body can handle. While the APIC A2M Molecule is our body’s own defense mechanism, it is unable to enter the joint or disc space in large enough quantities due to its large size and complex structure. As a result, it is necessary to inject additional isolated concentrated APIC A2M into the affected area to restore balance and pain relief.
An injection of isolated concentrated APIC A2M, derived from your own blood and placed directly into your joint or disc space, can provide the necessary amount of APIC A2M to bind and remove these destructive proteases.
What does APIC A2M have to do with solving my joint or back pain?
APIC Alpha-2-Macroglobulin (A2M) therapy is different from other treatments. APIC A2M is a naturally occurring molecule found in your blood, which when administered in highly concentrated doses, acts as a powerful protector against cartilage breakdown. APIC A2M eliminates inflammation, attaches to, and removes the destructive enzymes and proteases, which damage cartilage cells and tissues within the joint or disc space.
Early Treatment Equals Better Recovery
For patients suffering from joint or back pain, APIC A2M therapy is an exciting advancement in orthopedic science resulting from years of research. Early treatments of this miracle molecule delay the need for more aggressive and costly procedures, including surgery. Your current treatment may only be managing the symptoms of your joint or back pain — not addressing the root cause. Though most patients find these types of treatments offer temporary relief they are not focusing on the underlying source of arthritic joint and back pain.
Breakthrough therapy indicator
Research has identified the “pain protein” Fibronectin-Aggrecan Complex (FAC) as a link with painful inflammation and cartilage breakdown. Your doctor can test your synovial fluid for the presence of FAC and determine if you are an appropriate candidate for APIC A2M Therapy.
