Knee Decompression Therapy and extracorporeal shockwave therapy are to non-surgical treatments that are commonly used to manage knee pain. When used in combination these treatments can provide significant pain relief and improve mobility in the knee joint.
Knee Traction therapy involves using the KneeOnTrac device that applies gentle pulling forces to the knee joint. This can help to stretch the muscles and tendons around the knee, pull nutrients in to the joint space to help lubricate, as well as increase blood flow to the area. This type of therapy is often used to treat conditions such and knee arthritis, bursitis, tendonitis, and ligament sprains and strains.
Extracorpreal shockwave therapy, on the other hand, uses high-energy sound waves to treat many joint and tendon disorders. By sending these high energy waves in to the bone and soft tissue, it reinjures the area on a cellular level and breaks up the scarring that has penetrated the tendons and ligaments. The controlled reinjuring of the tissues allows the body to regenerate blood vessels and bonce cells resulting in faster healing and often a return to pre-injury activity. It is often used to treat conditions such as knee tendinitis, knee bursitis, and patellar tendinitis.
When these two treatments are comined, they can provide a powerful and effective way to manage knee pain. The knee traction therapy can help to stretch the muscles and tendons, increase bloodflow, as well as hydrate the joint, While the shockwave therapy can stimulate the healing of damaged tissues. This combination can help to reduce pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall quality of life.
It is important to note that the effectiveness of these treatments can vary dependin on the individual and the underlying cause of their knee pain. It's always best to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs.
