A Viable Alternative To Total Or Partial Joint Replacement
Forward Healthy Lifestyles is a Stem Cell Therapy Clinic located in Germantown, WI serving Menomonee Falls, Mequon, Brookfield & West Bend areas. Today, physicians are using stem cell therapies in the treatment of a wide array of medical diseases/disorders and traumas. Presently, the uses of stem cells is becoming common practice with orthopedics as it may help deter a knee replacement or surgical procedure and improve function of joints following injury.

Another non-surgical method of treating muscle strains and tears, ligament and tendon tears, minor arthritis, and maintaining joints is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, a blood platelet treatment. PRP is also used during the post-injection phase of our stem cell protocol to help stimulate the stem cells to work harder in repairing injured tissues.
PRP injections cost less than stem cell procedures and are commonly used in less severe injuries and orthopedic conditions. The concentrated blood platelet injection contains healing growth components that increase the body’s natural ability to repair itself. PRP treatments can be effective because platelets have a stimulating effect on the stem cells within the targeted area. Stem cells are found throughout the entire body and play a key role in repairing damaged tissue, so a primary goal in platelet treatments is to get these powerful cells to work harder and faster.
