HipTrac provides natural pain relief for hip osteoarthritis and is designed for independent patient use in clinic or at home. It delivers the same long axis hip traction that a physical therapist, chiropractor or physician would do manually. It decompresses the hip joint, stretches the joint capsule, and relaxes the surrounding tissues. That relieves the pain, relaxes the muscles, and improves mobility.
HipTrac is also effective when used with other hip conditions:
FAI (femoral-acetabular impingement) reduce pain and improve mobility
muscle tightness and joint stiffness
prehabilitation for THR to improve physical condition going into surgery
any condition in which your provider recommends outpatient traction of the hip
HipTrac delivers steady, patient-controlled traction force from 0-1000N with an easy-to-use handpump. It clearly displays the amount of traction force, which can be maintained for whatever length of time required by a particular protocol.
HipTrac weighs just 18 pounds, and folds up into a case with wheels so it can be easily taken on travel.
Multiple studies have documented the efficacy of long axis traction on relieving pain and improving mobility for individuals with hip osteoarthritis. Summaries of this research can be reviewed here, as well as a recent case series on home health therapy completed with HipTrac.
HipTrac webinars cover how to use HipTrac, protocols for different pathologies, live demonstration and Q & A with HipTrac’s inventor, Dr. Tony Rocklin. A pre-recorded webinar can be viewed on our YouTube channel. Call 650.479.4474 for the schedule on upcoming webinars.
