MEDICINE’S TRY AT KNEE DISTRACTION WITH A DEVICE
Medical care for most conditions
including knee pain is usually medication and surgery. Lately,
it has devised a joint-specific distraction device that was
not a hit with patients due to its not allowing flexion throughout
the 6 weeks of treatment. The researchers worked on its
design a bit, but it’s still being investigated
to find out how patients accept it. (1) Well, chiropractors have a
better, more tolerable way to treat the knee with distraction! It
is gentle. It feels good. It doesn’t have be a conspicuous
device worn everywhere to be valuable! It does not
involve medications! So good.
Sitka CHIROPRACTIC CARE
FOR KNEE PAIN RELIEF WITH THE HANDS
Knee pain treated with chiropractic
flexion distraction principles provides knee pain sufferers
hope. A new report just published discusses outcomes for
25 patients with knee pain (many due to osteoarthritis, some acute,
some chronic, even some post-knee replacement with continued knee pain) treated with
chiropractic flexion distraction. Overall knee pain patients reported
pain drops from 7.7 to 1.8 (1 [no pain] –
10 [worst pain]) in a mean of 5.3 treatments over 3 weeks. More precisely,
acute knee pain patients had pain drops from 8.1 to 1.1 in 4.8
treatments in 2.4 weeks. And chronic knee pain patients noted
pain drops from 7.5 to 2.2 in 5.4 treatments in 3.3 weeks.
Pain Score Drop

|Acute|| 8.1 to 1.1||4.8 ||2.4 |
|Chronic|| 7.5 to 2.2||5.4 ||3.3 |
As a bonus,
no one reported adverse side-effects
(2) Does Cox Technic flexion distraction for knee pain work like it does for spine pain by gapping the knee space to enhance
nutritional flow, dropping pressure, and reducing
rubbing of degenerative joints and surrounding
A biomechanical study will one day reveal the answer, but for now

is so thrilled to provide this new way
of knee pain relief with Sitka knee pain sufferers!
