Knee On Trac© Mechanical Decompression

Research has shown that traction therapy can increase 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.

What is Knee Decompression Therapy?

Knee Decompression uses the patented Knee on Trac system to separate the two main bones of the knee joint in order to reduce pain, increase function, and promote tissue healing.

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-establish some of the natural joint space and cushioning in the knee.
