How Does Knee on Trac Therapy Work?
By gently separating the joint space between the bottom of the femur (thigh bone) and the top of the tibia (shin bone) we can create a vacuum effect inside the knee joint which brings more nutrient rich fluid to the area. This also stretches the tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissue around the joint. This combined effect helps to re-esthablish the natural joint space and cushioning in the knee.
Research has shown that traction therapy can incerrase bone growth (osteogenesis), improve blood supply (angiogenesis), and increase joint mobility (viscoelasticity). This reduces pain, increases normal motion of the joint, and promotes tissue healing.Book An Appointment
