Chronic knee pain can be debilitating, keeping you from doing the things you love.
You’ve tried alternating ice and heat, but it was just a temporary fix. Your friends think you need knee surgery – maybe even a knee replacement, although you’re not too keen on the idea.
Before scheduling an appointment with a surgeon, talk to your Duluth chiropractor about your chiropractic treatment options. A decompression treatment, like Knee on Trac, might be the solution you’ve been searching for.
What Is Knee on Trac and Can It Help with Chronic Knee Pain?
Knee on Trac is a non-invasive treatment for chronic knee pain in Duluth. It’s a traction system that isolates the knee for safe, effective treatment sessions.
A 2018 study proves that traction is an ideal treatment option for knee pain. Researchers evaluated patients who had a degenerative condition called gonarthritis, which is an inflammatory disorder that can be related to age, overload, and various diseases.
The patients who received traction therapy reported a significant reduction in pain levels. The male subject started at a pain point of nine, and by the time his session was over, his pain level had decreased to a one.
Continuous knee traction therapy can help the knee muscles relax and will stimulate muscle contractions, both of which will strengthen the knee, improve function, and decrease pain.
Other Treatment Options Used in Conjunction with Knee on Trac
In addition to traction, your Duluth chiropractor might recommend other forms of treatment as well. These can include chiropractic adjustments to restore proper skeletal alignment, as well as:
- G5 Massage therapy
- Ultrasound therapy
- Muscle stimulation
- Foot levelers
- Electrical muscle stimulation
- Therapeutic exercise
- Various types of laser therapy
