HipTrac™ delivers the same long axis hip traction as that performed manually in the clinic.
Just like long axis hip traction, HipTrac stretches and mobilizes the hip joint capsule, decreases intra-articular pressure in the joint, relaxes muscles around the hip and lumbopelvic region and increases the bathing of nutrient-rich fluids around the femoral head and acetabulum. The result for patients is pain relief and increased mobility.
HipTrac was cleared by the FDA in 2012; providers can bill for use of the HipTrac in clinical practice using CPT Code 97012 (Mechanical Traction).
The benefits for your patients:
► Decreased pain, increased mobility and ROM.
► Increased exercise tolerance to improve biomechanics, strength, mobility, cardiovascular health and weight loss.
► Reduce the risk of co-morbidities due to inactivity related to progressive OA.
► Increased functionality and higher quality of life.
The benefits for you and your practice:
► Maximize professional time while minimizing physical effort – while one patient is on HipTrac, treat another or catch up on charts.
► Place your patient on HipTrac and moist heat to relax and prepare their hip for soft tissue and joint mobilizations.
► Breakeven on investment in a few months, then generate profit.
► Create new referrals for your practice.
