Knee on Trac Therapy

Knee on Trac Therapy operates by delicately increasing the space between the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shin bone). This gentle separation in the knee joint initiates a vacuum effect, attracting nutrient-rich fluid to the area. Additionally, it stretches tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues around the joint. This dual action helps restore some of the knee's natural space and cushioning.
Studies indicate that traction therapy, such as Knee on Trac, can stimulate bone growth (osteogenesis), enhance blood circulation (angiogenesis), and improve joint flexibility (viscoelasticity). These benefits lead to reduced pain, improved joint movement, and accelerated tissue healing.

Knee Decompression: Suitable Conditions and Expected Results

Knee on Trac Therapy is particularly effective for conditions like knee joint degeneration, arthritis, meniscus tears, sprains and strains (over six weeks old), and osteochondritis dissecans. Patients can anticipate a reduction in pain, enhanced joint mobility and function, and promotion of cartilage repair.

Potential Side Effects and Treatment Experience

While some patients might experience mild soreness post-treatment, especially in cases of advanced joint degeneration or significant scar tissue, this is generally minimal.

During a treatment session, which lasts between 5 to 10 minutes based on individual needs, you will be seated with your leg comfortably extended. The therapy involves securing the leg with a strap over the thigh and an inflatable cuff below the knee. The Knee on Trac device is then adjusted to your specific condition, allowing you to experience a gentle separation of the knee joint.

Post-Treatment Expectations

Many patients notice positive changes after just a few sessions. The therapy is often combined with other treatments for a comprehensive recovery tailored to your unique condition. The total number of recommended treatments will vary based on the severity of your condition and your personal recovery goals.
