1. What knee conditions can the Knee On Trac be used for? Knee On Trac benefits those suffering with chronic knee pain, osteoarthritis, ACL injuries, meniscus tears, failed surgery, sub-acute muscle strain, chronic muscle strain and previous knee injuries.
2. How many treatments is the optimal amount? If you have chronic knee pain, the best dosage is 24 sessions spread out over a 3 month period. The schedule is 3 times per week for 1 month, 2 times per week for 1 month, and 1 time per week for 1 month. This gives the cartilage an adequate amount of dosage and sufficient amount of time to heal as much as possible. Studies on traction show this to be the best recommendation.
3. How long does a session last? It will take about 8 minutes per knee. If we do traction and laser therapy together, each knee would take about a half hour total.
4. How much does it cost? Knee On Trac treatments are $25 per knee for each session. Most knee conditions we combine with 12 MLS laser therapy sessions, which is $50 for one knee and an additional $25 for both knees. Custom orthotics range in price from $175 to $245. We usually do some chiropractic extremity adjustments as we go through the program (about 12). These are about $30 per time. The supplements we use will usually run around $50-75 per month. These are the component parts of a comprehensive knee program, so the total cost will range from about $2000 for one knee to about $3000 for both knees to be treated. We have several payment plans available to suit your needs.
5. What are my odds of getting significant relief? If after reviewing your history and examining you we determine you are a good candidate, then your chances of significant relief are 85-90%. This program works for most people, and other doctors around the country who use similar programs report this level of success.
6. Will my insurance cover this? Some insurances cover chiropractic adjustments to the extremities. Medicare does not. Knee On Trac traction, MLS laser therapy, custom orthotics and supplements are not covered by insurance and will not be billed.
7. Is this guaranteed to work? Nothing in healthcare is guaranteed, but, as stated before, a good candidate who follows the program exactly as we outline has an 85-90% chance of very significant relief.
