The Passive Knee Stretch Device:
The Final Step in Knee, Hip and Achilles Rehabilitative Therapy
This Device is Currently Used in Hundreds of Physical Therapy Clinics and Hospitals in Canada - This Same Device is Now Currently Available for Use at Home
This seemingly simple device has assisted in the recovery of thousands of patients that have suffered many various injuries. Once a patient is on the path to healing, this device assists the patient in making a fast and full recovery.
The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device assists in complete and full recovery for:
- Patients recovering from surgery (ie. knee replacement, lathroscopic knee and hip surgery, hip replacement).
- Patients recovering from a serious knee ligament injury
- Patients recovering from a serious Hip Injury such as Illiotibial Band Syndrome or Acetabular Labral Tear
- Patients recovering from Hamstring Pulls, Hamstring Strain, Calf Pulls, Calf Strains
- Patients recovering from knee or hip dislocations
- Patients recovering from Achilles Pulls, Achilles Strain, Partial Achilles Tears, Achilles Post-Surgery Rehab
Before making the transition to crutches, physical therapists prescribe gentle stretching of an injured knee or hip, and if no device is available, they usually prescribe heel slides. They don't prescribe this to annoy you - it is in fact the most important part of knee injury recovery. You probably know of someone that chose not to do these stretches as it is common - and they paid a high price for it. By not listening to the therapist (ie. not stretching), there is a huge chance of re-injuring your knee or even sustaining an injury greater than the original injury ever was.
The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device was created because the heel was not sliding smoothly enough, causing re-injury and additional pain. Physical Therapists encounter the same issues every day when attempting to work with patients who are undergoing therapy from a serious knee, hip or achilles injury. This is why most therapists in Canada instantly purchased these same devices for their own clinics. For patients recovering from serious pain, it allows a more controlled and comfortable method to stretch and strengthen the muscles and ligaments in both the hip and knee joint. The sliding mechanism is extremely smooth and durable, as well as linear - something that becomes very important in such cases.
Using the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device not only helps minimize the growth of scar tissue, but it also increases the elasticity and strength of the joint. After using the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device over time, your knee joint will be better prepared to handle higher and higher loads. Eventually you will reach a stage where your knee joint can handle crutches or standing for longer and longer period of time. This is the final stage of recovery and depending on age, the nature of the injury, your weight and many other factors, it can take the longest time to complete. But remember, for knee injuries, it pays to be patient! Rushing your knee injury recovery almost never pays.
When combined with Freezie Wrap® therapy and Inferno Wrap® therapy, the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device allows you to comprehensively treat knee injuries, hip injuries, calf injuries and achilles injuries with the most effective home treatments that are available.
The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for repetitive, industrial usage in hospitals and therapeutic clinics. This device is deemed safe to use without medical assistance and as such is also available for use at home. This device is manufactured with a durable, easy glide track and is constructed almost completely from Canadian hardwoods.
If you aren't a professional athlete but you have a soft tissue injury (just like the injuries they get all the time), shouldn't you be getting the best treatment too? Of course you should - and you can. Pro Athletes have unlimited and timely access to Trainers and Physical Therapists that are actively working to get them healed as fast as possible. In almost all cases, Trainers and Therapists will have the patient undergo a treatment regimen that involves using a joint stretch device very similar to the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device.
Knee Flex Usage - Key Points to Keep in Mind
The Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device will become an invaluable tool in your knee/hip/calf/achilles recovery therapy. When used correctly, this device can strengthen and stretch four different muscle groups as well as stimulate blood flow in the joint for added recovery speed. Once you have spoken with your physician or physical therapist and determined that they approve of heel slide exercises, only then should you begin using the Knee-Flex® device. Once using it, here are a few things to consider:
- On the first session, loop a belt or bathrobe loop around your foot to assist your efforts. Once you find this is not needed then stop using the loop.
- Do not fret if you cannot flex your knee. Do what flexion you can and this machine should assist in increasing your range of motion over the long run.
- Set up the machine in a stable area free from obstruction. Most of our users find a pillow is very helpful as well for sitting/lying on.
- Always use the machine slowly and in a controlled manner. Quick, jerky movements are not helpful and will only cause added problems.
- When placing your heel on and off the machine, use your arms to lift it. This will keep the stress off your injured joints.
- Always follow the manual.
When used properly, the Knee-Flex® has a proven track record of assisting in the speedy recovery of many patients. As I have said on the home page, I have spent a long time searching for this treatment option. This is without doubt, the third and final essential tool for complete recovery. Once a patient deals with the swelling and inflammation through use of the Freezie Wrap® then begins the BFST® process through the use of the Inferno Wrap® it is time to take the third and final step to recovery by beginning a rehabilitation stretching regimen. The safest and most effective way we know to stretch the knee, hip and achilles is through use of the Knee-Flex® Passive Knee Stretch Device
