A2M (alpha-2-macroglobulin) is a naturally occurring protein in your blood plasma. It is known to be both a potent anti-inflammatory compound as well as an inhibitor of the enzymes that can break down the proteins (like collagen) in your joint tissues. It is for these reasons that QC Kinetix has A2M as a part of our regenerative therapy protocols. While A2M therapy is new in the regenerative medicine field, we have already had outstanding results with it and are excited to be one of the very few groups in the country that offers it.
QC Kinetix employs the use of amniotic membrane-based products and umbilical cord tissue products that contain many important compounds, including but not limited to cytokines (which block activation of pain receptors), growth factors (responsible for repair and regeneration of tissue), natural hyaluronic acid (an important compound naturally found in the body and joints which provides hydration and lubrication for the area to be treated) and cellular matrix components (support structure). The addition of regenerative cell therapy for pain to your treatment plan maximizes your potential for the very best outcome.
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP regenerative injection therapy, has been used since 1987 to help accelerate the recovery process after surgery or injuries, and to decrease inflammation and ultimately pain. Although it was first used during open heart surgery, PRP therapy usage has grown dramatically to include pain management and other conditions over the past several years.
Many athletes have received PRP therapy for various issues and conditions that would have normally been treated with medications or even surgery. PRP regenerative injection therapy can often delay or have potential to eliminate the need for invasive surgical procedures for patients who struggle with a variety of issues. PRP regenerative injection therapy is a safe, effective, and minimally invasive treatment that helps your body heal quicker, regain function, and reduce or potentially eliminate pain.
The Class IV Laser was cleared by the FDA for use in 2003. The laser provides instant pain relief for your joint pain. This therapy is a non-invasive laser energy concentrated in a single area where the pain derives from. The purpose of the laser is to create a photochemical response that helps improve function and mobility, as well as reducing pain and inflammation. This will be the first step in our treatment package. This is designed to reduce pain and swelling, while stimulating the damaged tissue.
During treatment the body is exposed to temperatures below negative 200 degrees for about 2 – 4 minutes. As the body warms up again, the enriched blood flows back through the body through a process called vasodilation. As a result, whole body cryotherapy is very effective for athletic recovery and muscle repair, reduction of chronic pain and inflammation, and overall enhancement of health and wellness
