What Is Knee Traction?
Also known as knee decompression, knee traction is a cutting-edge, non-invasive option for decreasing knee pain
while enhancing the recovery process. This modality has helped many patients find knee pain relief where other options have failed, making us a popular choice for knee decompression in Austin.
The knee traction machine gently moves back and forth to provide axial decompression of the joint space. This often provides immediate knee pain relief from bone-on-bone rubbing related to injuries or degenerative conditions like Osteoarthritis
. Moreover, decompression allows the supporting structures to relax and recover.
Often used in conjunction with laser therapy
, knee decompression creates a more suitable healing environment by allowing the laser to penetrate into the joint. This modality has produced notable results for patients suffering from knee pain related to issues including Osteoarthritis
, sports injuries
, and failed surgeries, to name a few.
There are no uncomfortable sensations during treatment, which usually lasts about 15 minutes per knee. Our providers typically recommend six sessions for acute knee pain and 12 sessions for chronic pain.
