The TracPal device relieves pain caused by wear/tear injuries (e.g. osteoarthritis) in the hip, knee, shoulder, neck and lower back. When using TracPal, joints are slightly distracted for intra articular relief using your own bodyweight and strength.
Manual traction therapy is usually given by physiotherapists and other healthcare providers to decrease intra-articular pressure for more space in painful joints, giving immediate pain relief and lasting relief if given on a regular basis.
When to practice manual traction therapy?
-Joint pain caused by Osteoarthritis
-To improve mobility
Select a method below:
Hip traction is done while laying down on a flat surface. A pulling force will create a gap in the femoral acetabular joint creating immediate pain relief. This can be mimicked with the TracPal device in your own home, hotel and wherever a painful or locked hip might strike you.
Knee traction is regularly done while the patient is sitting with the leg hanging off a bench. The therapist will force the leg down along the line of tibia. This is particularly effective for pain control and joint flexibility. With TracPal, the knee traction is done by yourself while laying down and using the help of a yoga block.
Stiffness in the neck and light headaches can be relieved by using TracPal. By stretching the spinal vertebrae with your own body weight, your muscles and tendons will relax, therefore relieving pain from sprains, joints or spasms. Setting up the TracPal device for neck traction takes 30 seconds and you can enjoy the sensations as you relax or meditate.
Lower back traction (spinal traction) takes the pressure off compressed discs and straightens the spine, therefore giving you pain relief against gravity-induced pain causes. Enjoy the pain relief, proper spinal alignment and the feeling of decompressed joints.
Shoulder traction helps to increase shoulder mobility and relieve pain caused by impingement syndrome. By gently stretching and relaxing the joint capsule, both the pain and spasms will be relieved.
My name is Carlos Sarmiento. I am a Physiotherapist, Osteopath and Craniosacral Therapist, with 20 years of experience in the healthcare sector. I that think TracPal is a great invention since it helps to improve the ailments of knees and hips, especially the latter. Thanks to traction and joint stretching, it relaxes soft tissues around the joint and releases joint compression. A very positive side about TracPal is that the user can now do the treatment at home without third party assistance. Decreasing joint pain improves the quality of life for people with arthritis and symptoms of joint compression. I have tried TracPal myself and really believe that it will help a lot of people with such problems.
I was curious to try TracPal and did my first self-treatment session after a 35 km run. During running I felt pain in the left knee. The result was immediate! First I noticed a nice stretch in the calf. Second, tension in the knee disappeared. I really recommend TracPal for long-distance runners!
TracPal has made a big difference for me. I have osteoarthritis in my hips and am waiting for a hip replacement surgery. During this time the only option my doctor gave me against the acute pain in my hips is painkillers. That is until I tried TracPal! Already on the first week I felt the pain levels drop after using it. Now I can keep doing what I love - playing badminton.
I live an active life, going running and doing yoga almost daily. In the recent years I have started to feel my knees getting tired during a longer run. Luckily, after I started using TracPal on my knees the stress subsided, and I could keep up with my sports. Thank you TracPal!
I suffered from acute capsular joint pain - it was even painful just to stand up. After a visit to the physiotherapist I got a TracPal device with me and could that way continue with the traction treatment at home without assistance. I am sure that TracPal helped me to a faster recovery.
A few years ago I found myself being passionate about dancing and running. I noticed my knees started to hurt the more I was working out. I thought it was just inevitable. When I heard about Tracpal I was sceptical, since at first I thought it was meant for different joint problems. I had the chance to try TracPal out on myself, and I was surprised by how fast my knees stopped hurting by using the traction method twice a week for a few minutes.
I got my hips rotating a lot better and my golf game improved significantly after using TracPal.
I felt lightness and freedom in my legs already after the first try.
