Hip self-traction using TracPal

Step 1

Make sure that the door jamb strap is adjusted using the pin to fit the width of the door so that the ankle strap is up against the door jamb.

Place the door strap in the door jamb about 20-50 cm up from the floor, close the door and pull tight.

Step 2

Put on the ankle strap by placing the short-end over the foot, followed by the long-end. The long-end strap should be placed above the ankle for best result. Insert the long strap into the buckle, pull tight using the finger loop and secure.

Step 3

Lay down on the back at a slight angle from the door jamb, push away with the opposite leg while being fully relaxed in the leg to be treated. Do the pull for 2 minutes, relax for 30 seconds. Repeat two to three times.

During hip traction a Yoga Block can be used under the knee for less strain on the knee capsule and for easier relaxation between intervals. A Yoga Block should be used at all times If the user suffers from joint-hypermobility.

The Yoga Block can as well be used under the foot for better reach during push away.
