THERAPEUTICS | ALPHA 2 MACROGLOBULIN THERAPY
Examples of conditions we treat
Chronic Lyme Disease
Alpha-2-Macroglobulin (A2M) is a protein naturally present in blood and its function is to end inflammation once tissue repair is complete. When this function is out-balanced by pro-inflammatory proteins, it leads to ongoing pain, swelling and discomfort even after the necessary repairs have taken place. We can selectively isolate A2M from your own blood, concentrate it and re-inject it into the painful, inflamed area, thus alleviating the pain.
What to expect: The whole procedure typically takes 1-2 hours but can vary from person to person. It is done with a local anaesthetic/numbing medicine. We draw blood, process that blood for your A2M and then inject the A2M where needed. Most people walk out of the office on their own and drive themselves home. There is some downtime for healing but this varies. Typically 2 weeks after the procedure people are back into regular activities
