Knee pain can occur for various reasons, such as muscle strains, bone fractures, ligament sprains, and age-related changes. Most people suffering from knee pain believe they have two primary options — medications or surgery. Marin Regenerative Health is glad to inform you that there’s a third (and better) solution — non-surgical knee decompression.
Alleviate Knee Pain Without Drugs or Surgery
The knee is one of the most complex joints in the human body, susceptible to pain and injury. The most common cause of knee pain is overuse. You may develop knee pain if you play a sport that puts repetitive stress on your knees, such as basketball or soccer, or have a job that requires you to kneel or crouch for long periods. Other possible causes of knee pain include arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, dislocation, and injuries.
Conventional medicine offers two primary solutions for chronic knee pain — medications or surgery. Neither of those solutions is ideal. You can’t go through life relying on medications and drugs to simply get through the day. Surgeries, meanwhile, involve extended downtime and a high risk of complications. And even after all that, surgeries don’t always work. We offer a non-opioid and non-surgical alternative to knee pain treatment — knee decompression.
What is Knee Decompression?
Knee decompression is a non-invasive therapy involving mechanical traction to improve knee mobility. The procedure involves using a mechanical table to separate the tibia (shin bone) and the femur (thigh bone), which creates more space for the knee joint. Knee decompression can reduce knee pain, reduce inflammation, improve the range of motion, and stimulate natural cellular regeneration. Since knee decompression is non-invasive, there are no side effects, and it doesn’t interfere with your life.
Knee Decompression Can Treat:
- Lateral collateral tear
- Medial collateral tear
- ACL or PCL partial tear
- Total knee replacement
- Baker’s cyst behind the knee
- Meniscus injury
- Meniscus tear
- Knee arthritis
- Knee osteoarthritis
- Knee/patellar tendonitis
- Knee/patellar bursitis
- Knee pain
- Knee stiffness
- Limited knee mobility
- Other knee conditions
Advantages of Knee Decompression:
- No drugs or opioids
- No injections or invasive techniques
- No surgical procedures or incisions
- No anesthesia
- No hospitalization
- No downtime or harsh side effects
- Reduces knee inflammation
- Reduces knee swelling
- Rehydrates soft tissues
- Improves knee flexibility
- Improves knee mobility
- Stimulates natural healing
How Does Knee Decompression Work?
Knee decompression is a non-invasive procedure that uses a machine to apply negative pressure to the knee joint. This relieves pressure on the joints and allows for better blood flow and circulation. Knee pain often occurs when the knee joint is inflamed because of friction, injuries, or other problems. Knee decompression facilitates the delivery of nutrient-rich fluids to the knee joint, thus stimulating natural healing and regeneration. Over time, your knee pain will gradually recede.
Does Knee Decompression Really Work?
Clinic trials have shown that knee decompression can reduce knee pain by 10% to 90%, depending on the number of knee decompression treatments. Utilizing MRI before and after the session, researchers have also found that knee decompression improves the lubrication of knee joints, thus improving the overall health and mobility of the joints. If you’re suffering from chronic knee pain, non-surgical knee decompression is the solution.
Your Knee Decompression Experience
Knee decompression is a simple, in-office procedure in which you must sit on a large, padded chair. When the treatment starts, the computer-controlled mechanical chair moves to apply negative pressure on your knee joint. The suction pulls your kneecap downward and takes the pressure off your kneecap and the surrounding bones and ligaments. The entire treatment concludes within 20 to 30 minutes, following which you may resume your daily activities.
Knee decompression is a simple outpatient procedure done once a day for 20 to 30 minutes at a time. Most people need 10 to 20 sessions to get relief from knee pain. However, the specific number of sessions will depend on your unique condition and goals. You should start seeing improvements after only 5 to 10 sessions, but you must complete the entire series. After the complete treatment series, you will have to undergo physical therapy to strengthen the knee.
