HipTrac mobilizes the hip joint capsule, decreases intra-articular pressure, relaxes muscles and increases movement of nutrient-rich fluids around the femoral head and acetabulum. The result is pain relief and increased mobility.
HipTrac was cleared by the FDA in 2012; providers can bill for use of HipTrac in clinical practice using CPT Code 97012 (Mechanical Traction).
HipTrac is prescribed for hip osteoarthritis, femoral acetabular impingement (FAI), acetabular labral tears and lumbar spine stenosis. You can review the Orientation Test and recommended Treatment Protocols below. There are also some patients who should not use HipTrac; find out more about contraindications.
When purchasing for the clinic and using CPT Code 97012, HipTrac pays for itself in as little as 3 months depending on your specific reimbursement and number of sessions performed. After that, you are generating profit while helping a lot of patients feel better and move better! The purchase price for providers is $895. We also offer rental/demo units for you to try. Call us at (650) 479-4474 for more details.

“As a PT, I like to try new medical devices before recommending them to my patients. When I injured my hip, I thought what better time to give the HipTrac a try? I was pleasantly surprised with the ease of using the device and the positive results after just a few sessions! My aggravating hip pain disappeared without the need for further medical intervention! I will gladly recommend the HipTrac to my patients as a way to avoid surgery or invasive hip treatments.”
“Dr. Bryan Walls, Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine
“My name is Bryan Walls and I am a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. I have a Family Practice in Portland, Oregon and see a variety of illnesses, injuries and conditions. I see quite a few patients that have hip osteoarthritis…Most of the patients are not severe enough to warrant surgery but definitely have significant limitations. I use the HipTrac as a treatment tool in the office as well as refer patients to have one for home. The majority of patients with mild to moderate hip osteoarthritis love the feeling of traction on their hips. It provides relief and improves their mobility.”
Dr. Gary Jansen, Doctor of Chiropractic, Jansen Chiropractic Clinic
“Congratulations on the development of a product whose efficiency is matched by its ease of use. Finally a void is filled for those suffering from osteoarthritis of the hip. The very first patient I tried the HipTrac on purchased the device. I have found the HipTrac to be indispensable to my clinic and highly recommend it to anyone requiring symptomatic relief of hip pain.”
