Chiropractic Care for Knee Pain at O'Dell Family Chiropractic

If you’re having trouble with your knees, there may be hope for you.

Knee decompression therapy is a highly effective therapy that can reduce pain, increase function, and promote tissue healing by gently loosening the joint space between the bottom of the femur (thigh bone) and the top of the tibia (shin bone).

This creates a vacuum effect inside the knee joint, which brings more nutrient-rich fluid to this area. The combined effect helps re-establish some of the natural joint space and cushioning in your knee.

You’ll notice a difference after just one treatment.

When is Knee Decompression Used?

Acute Sprains

Acute (new, less than six weeks) sprains and strains are suitable for some of our clinic’s other procedures, such as Softwave. However, if your knee still hurts after a few weeks, you may have been twisted, which would benefit from Knee on Trac therapy to release those tight muscles around your leg bone and joints while also providing relief from pain.

Simple and Complex Meniscus Tears

Following a knee decompression treatment, runners will feel less pain from meniscal tears. Following an earlier intervention may help you save time and get on your way again quickly- without residual aches or pains coming up later in life down the road if handled poorly.

Lateral or Medial Collateral Tear

The Knee on Trac is a revolutionary rehabilitation tool that provides pumping action to assist with chronic tear healing. To make the treatment more pleasant, laser therapy and Softwave treatments are utilized so you can resume your regular activities faster.

ACL or PCL Partial Tear

If you have a partial tear in your knee, the healing process must be optimized. With laser and Softwave therapy and decompression treatment at home or clinic appointments under doctor’s supervision, there are many ways to get back on track for active lifestyles again!

Total Knee Replacement

After total knee replacement, many individuals lose the ability to fully extend their joint. Patients who have had this procedure will require approximately a year to recover and use Knee on Trac or be cleared by the surgeon.

Rehabilitation therapy, which includes decompression methods like re-stretching ligaments and exercises developed particularly for them, helps reduce the rate of repetition.

Baker’s Cyst

Baker’s Cysts are fluid-filled sacs that develop behind the knee. They’re generally triggered by other common diseases, such as arthritis or a torn cartilage, and they respond well to therapies like decompression that target the condition responsible for producing them in your body.

Knee Decompression Therapy is Not a Good Fit For…

Patients with recent fractures, acute ligament injuries, or complete tears of their ACLs are at high risk for complications. Blood clots in the knee can be life-threatening and should never go untreated.

Additionally, these patients may also suffer from cancerous growths such as osteoporosis which is caused by decreased bone density due to old age; infections that could affect one’s joint if left unchecked; knees replaced less than a year ago (unless cleared otherwise) without ever having healed properly yet again.

If you have any of these ailments, knee decompression treatment is not suggested for you.

Does Knee Decompression Have Side Effects?

Yes. If the deterioration and scar tissue in a patient’s knees are extremely advanced, some mild soreness may be felt after the first few treatments. It is generally short-lived, although it might be more severe in rare cases; nevertheless, most patients experience comfort by applying ice after each treatment session with us.

What Can You Expect When You Come In For Treatment?

A session takes place in an inflatable cuff, which is placed just below your knee for support as a strap is draped over the top of it to relieve pressure while also providing support around the majority of your legs’ thighs region (the upper calf).

Our therapist will customize the settings on the Knee on Trac machine based on your condition. With each repetition, you feel a mild separation of the joint as they pull it inwards and outwards, releasing tension after it is pulled away by gravity every time it’s released from its opposing force (a pulling motion).

What Can You Expect After Treatment?

After a few treatments, most patients notice improvements. Your treatment will frequently be combined with other therapies that aim to achieve the finest and quickest recovery possible for your condition. 

This is why we provide such a wide range of treatment choices at our clinic – based on how bad your condition has gotten or what you hope it might be able to recover from.

For example, if the patient’s condition has not improved after one week of treatment, two visits each week might be necessary (for moderate cases). This may include one consultation per week (for mild situations) and two visits weekly if there has been some improvement.
