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. MLS Laser therapy will be provided afterwards which will decrease inflammation, allow re-hydration of the joint and tissue and speed the healing process by repairing damaged tissue and rebuilding of cartilage.

 

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.
