Knee Decompression in Clifton, NJ

Knee Decompression
The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints of the human body. The intricate structure of the knee joint makes it susceptible to many different injuries and conditions.
In the past, surgery and prescription pain medication were commonly recommended for patients who were unable to find relief from traditional treatment options. At Natural Health Center of Clifton, we are proud to offer knee decompression as a non-invasive treatment option for knee pain while reducing pain, increasing function, and enhancing the healing process of soft tissue.

Knee Decompression Therapy
Knee decompression therapy, also known as knee traction, uses a machine to gently separate the knee joint providing immediate pain relief while allowing soft tissues such as tendons and ligaments to relax and recover. This treatment method allows us to analyze and treat your knee pain in a comfortable, non-invasive, and effective way.
During the procedure, you will be seated with the affected leg extended at a comfortable angle, and your leg is strapped down just above and below the knee to secure your leg during treatment. Our doctors will use precise settings to treat your condition. The machine uses manual traction to pull, separate, and then release the tension within your knee repeatedly throughout treatment.
The results of knee decompression therapy include a reduction in pain and increased joint mobility and function with enhanced soft tissue repair.
Most patients report positive results after the first few sessions. Each session takes about 15 minutes per knee. We typically recommend 6 sessions for acute knee pain and 12 sessions for chronic pain, but each treatment plan will be tailored to the patient’s individual condition and needs.
