Non-surgical, Drug-free, Knee Pain Therapy -- Knee On Trac
If you suffer from knee pain, you are not alone. It is the most commonly-injured joint in the body. Whatever the cause may be, the pain can be debilitating, movement can be restricted, muscle control can depreciate, and the strength in the muscles that support the knee can be reduced. Traditionally, treatments for knee pain include anti-inflammatory medications, steroid injections or even surgery. But there is always another option.
- The knee is the largest joint in the body and essentially supports the body itself.
- The knee joint is the junction of the thigh and the leg bones, and the kneecap sits in front. Four major ligaments connect the bones and stabilize the knee joint.
- Knee pain can stem from normal wear-and-tear, overuse or injury. One of the most common knee conditions is osteoarthritis, which is the degeneration of joint cartilage and the underlying bone which can cause pain and stiffness. Other knee conditions such as chronic tendonitis, as well as cartilage and ligament damage, are also common. The location of the knee pain provides clues as to the cause, as does the timing of the pain, swelling, mobility, noises or locking of the knee.
- Appropriate treatment will depend on an accurate diagnosis. If your pain persists beyond two to three weeks of home care, seek medical attention. Surgery is not always your only option. Physical therapy for knee pain is a natural treatment option with proven long-term benefits.

Knee On Trac offers an innovative type of knee decompression therapy which isolates and tractions the knee joint in short sessions. Even a single session can offer dramatic results. Knee On Trac Benefits Those Suffering From:
- Chronic Knee Pain

What Can I Expect During a Treatment?
A typical session is about 10 minutes depending on the patient’s condition and need. You will be seated, with your leg positioned at a comfortable angle. A strap is used over the upper thigh and an inflatable cuff is used just below the knee to secure the leg. Our therapist will then program the Knee on Trac equipment with the appropriate settings depending on your condition. You will feel a gentle separation of the knee joint. Sanexas electrical signal therapy will be provided afterwards to decrease inflammation, allow re-hydration of the joint and tissue, and speed the healing process by repairing damaged tissue and rebuilding cartilage. This knee pain relief device can be used in conjunction with other types of treatments for sore knees, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and aliographs with stem cells.
What Can I Expect After the Treatment?
Most patients see positive results in the first few treatments. Your treatment will often be combined with other therapies designed to produce the fastest and most complete recovery possible for your individual condition. Total number of treatments recommended will depend on the severity of your condition along with your personal treatment goals.
What Are the Side Effects?
Some patients experience some mild soreness after the first few treatments if the degeneration in the knee joint is very advanced or lots of scar tissue is present.
What if I’ve Already had Knee Surgery, and It has Failed to Relieve My Chronic Knee Pain?
This treatment has helped restore movement and relieve knee pain when bending, standing, and walking. This new therapy addresses the source of the pain instead of temporarily masking its symptoms with medication. In fact, it was developed by a chiropractor whose own father died from the side effects of pain drugs.
Don’t let your chronic knee pain limit your life out of fear of surgery and medication. Knee on Trac offers noninvasive, comfortable therapy close to home. Call us for a consultation to see if it’s the right knee pain treatment for you.
