Knee on Trac (Knee Decompression) in Roseville
Chronic knee pain in Roseville makes it difficult to walk, and perform many routine activities, it often even hurts when at rest. The Knee on Trac technology available at Twin Creeks Health is a non-invasive, safe option that can be used to relieve knee pain without injections and/or surgery.
How Does Knee On Trac Reduce Knee Pain in Roseville?
The Knee on Trac technology is based on non-invasive therapy for knee pain, offering a healing alternative for people who live with chronic knee pain. This system is designed to isolate the knee and provide safe mechanical traction that is expected to decrease pain by decreasing the inflammation, increasing the range of motion, and allowing re-hydration. All these will eventually speed up the healing process.
Knee on Trac is a decompression/traction system that isolates the knee joint while gently stretching the knee joint. This process, over the course of several weeks, can improve the knee joint’s flexibility and mobility.
It also reduces pain by increasing the space in the knee joint (arthritis and degeneration narrow the joint space) and increases the volume of fluid in and around the knee, while improving the “screw home mechanism” (SHM) which reduces stress on the knee.
The screw home mechanism of the knee joint is a critical mechanism that plays an important role in the extension and locking of the knee.
There are no needles, there is no surgery, and no drugs of any kind required for this type of knee pain treatment.
In some cases, our doctors may recommend combining knee traction with manual therapy, cold laser therapy, or SoftWave therapy which can increase blood flow and promote healing in the knee. At-home exercises may also be recommended.
What Conditions Can Be Treated Successfully With Knee Traction?
Those who suffer from both acute and chronic (long-term) knee pain may be able to use Knee on Trac, including patients with:
- Osteoarthritis in the knee causing bone-on-bone rubbing
- Past, recurring injuries
- Failed knee surgery
You will be evaluated by our doctors to see if you are a good candidate for using knee traction to reduce knee pain.
What Are The Benefits Of Knee Traction?
Non-Surgical Knee Pain Treatment
The most appealing benefit of using the Knee on Trac technology is the fact that it is a non-surgical option that is safe and effective and can help patients before they resort to injections or surgery.
Extends the Life of the Knee Before Surgery is Needed
Most orthopedic surgeons encourage patients with knee arthritis to take steps to avoid surgery – partial or full knee replacement – for as long as possible. This is because joint replacements have an average lifespan of 20 years.
Because we tend to live longer, there is a greater risk that a replacement won’t outlast the patient. Using non-surgical treatments before surgery can be a good way to extend the life of the knee.
Easy to Receive Treatment
Patients simply sit in a Knee on Trac treatment chair (usually for 5 to 10 minutes) while targeted decompression takes place. The doctor will choose the right amount of tension for you, based on your condition. Several sessions over a period of weeks are required to achieve the best results. Our doctors will advise you in advance on what they expect would be needed for your level of knee pain.
There’s no need to be immobile and in pain when this therapy can help you get back to the things you love to do.
