What is knee decompression therapy?

Knee decompression is the the process of separating the knee joint bones, thus easing pain, promoting tissue growth, increasing mobility, and many other great benefits.  We here at the Restore Wellness Center we use equipment called the Knee on Trac system.  The Knee on Trac system allows us to create a individualized treatment plan that is carefully tailored to you and your knee ailments.  Knee decompression therapy can help with many knee ailments such as MCL, ACL, LCL, and PCL strains and tears, cartilage damage, knee pain management and knee pain reduction, as well as most all other knee ailments that cause lack of range of motion and pain.

How does the Knee on Trac Therapy System work?

The Knee on Trac System gently separates the joint space between the two major bones of the leg, the femor and tibia, or otherwise known as the thigh bone and shin bone.  It uses precise tension calculations to increase the space between the joint bones.  This increased space makes room in the joint for nutrient rich fluid that aids in the healing and joint cushioning.  The stretching it provides also gently stretches out the tendons, ligaments and other soft tissue in the knee that help with range of motion and healing of these soft tissues.

There are no known adverse side effects, but you may experience some soreness after your first couple treatments, depending on the severity of your existing damage or degeneration of your knee joint and soft tissues.

What should I expect during a knee decompression therapy session?

A typical session is 5 to 10 minutes depending on your particular condition and need. You will be seated, with your leg extended at a comfortable angle. A strap is used over the upper thigh and an inflatable cuff is used just below the knee to secure the leg. Our therapist will then program the Knee on Trac system with the appropriate settings depending on your condition. You will feel a gentle separation of the knee joint.
