Knee pain is a common problem that affects millions of people worldwide. It can be caused by a variety of factors, such as injuries, osteoarthritis, and overuse.
At Back to Health, we are committed to providing our patients with the most innovative and effective treatments for knee pain. One of our newest treatments for knee pain is knee decompression.
What is Knee Decompression?
Knee decompression is a non-surgical treatment that uses a specialized table to stretch and decompress the knee joint. The table gently pulls the leg, creating space in the knee joint, which reduces pressure on the joint and helps to alleviate pain.
During the knee decompression treatment, the patient lies on the table while their leg is secured in a harness. The table then slowly moves, pulling the leg and creating space in the knee joint. The treatment is painless, and patients typically experience a sense of relief as the pressure on their knee joint is reduced.
What are the Benefits of Knee Decompression?
Knee decompression can provide several benefits for patients with knee pain, including:
- Non-Invasive: Knee decompression is a non-surgical treatment that does not involve any incisions or injections. This means that patients can avoid the risks and complications associated with surgery.
- Alleviates Pain: Knee decompression can alleviate knee pain by reducing pressure on the knee joint. This can be especially beneficial for patients with knee pain caused by osteoarthritis or injuries.
- Improves Mobility: Knee decompression can improve knee joint mobility by increasing space in the knee joint. This can help patients perform everyday activities, such as walking and climbing stairs, with greater ease and comfort.
- No Downtime: Knee decompression is a quick and painless treatment that does not require any downtime. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
- Cost-Effective: Knee decompression is a cost-effective alternative to surgery and other invasive treatments for knee pain. It is also covered by most insurance plans.
