Recently a patient came in to consult me armed with his own research about regenerative medicine treatments.  He was interested in A2M injections for his back pain and his left shoulder pain conditions.   He was a researcher and did a thorough job on how regenerative medicine might help him as he age and suffer from joint degeneration.  I believe it’s useful to do your own research.  However, internet is filled with personal opinions so we all have to weed out those to reach true research data.

For those of you who are interested in diving a bit deeper into A2M injection therapy, here are some useful links to research data:
