The KKT treatment platform uses sound waves to relieve pain by improving spinal alignment of the back, shoulders and pelvis, while enhancing the health of the spinal discs, ligaments and muscles.  KKT philosophy is to focus on treating the underlying causes that result in pain.

The KKT treatment has been clinically proven to be effective for almost all types of chronic muscle, nerve or joint pain, including back pain.

  • Back Pain – Herniated Disc, Arthritis, Sciatica, Scoliosis, Spinal Stenosis, Spinal Degeneration (Spondylosis) 
  • Neck and Joint Pain – Neck pain, Whiplash, Arthritis, Shoulder Pain, Rotator Cuff (Shoulder), Hip and Knee Pain (Posture related)
  • Nervous System – Numbness & Tingling, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Nerve Damage
  • Head Conditions– Headaches, Migraines, Vertigo (dizziness), Concussions

Multiple studies, including randomized control trials, have been conducted to determine the degree of effectiveness of the KKT Treatment. In general, the studies found that patient’s self-reported level of pain reduced by 60%, on average, after the application of KKT Treatments over a period of 6 months. Studies have also reported that, after the KKT Treatment, many patients experience an increase in activity level and range of motion. Many participants in the trials were able to drastically reduced or eliminate the need for pain medications after undergoing the full cycle of KKT Treatments. Keep in mind, that although the results of these studies look very promising, individual results may vary depending on a variety of individual factors, such as comorbidities and underlying condition. It is important to talk to a KKT Physician to see if the KKT Treatment is right for you.

KKT has little to no side effects and none of the risks typically associated with pain medications or surgery.

While results may vary, the KKT treatment typically starts to deliver pain relief between sessions 1 – 6.

After the recommended treatment plan is completed, the pain relief will last for many months and years.  The pain relief can be permanent depending on the condition and lifestyle of the patients.  Patients work with KKT’s patient care coordinator to design an on-going lifestyle and wellness plan to compliment the KKT treatment in order to foster long-term pain relief.

The KKT Medical Team is trained at conducting a thorough consultation and diagnostic exam to determine which patients are candidates for the KKT Treatment. If a patient is not a candidate, the KKT Medical Team will work with the patient to find a solution outside of the KKT center.

If a patient has undergone the KKT Treatment and their condition has not improved after the completion of the treatment plan, the KKT Medical Team will inform the patient when to discontinue treatment and work with the patient to find a solution outside of the KKT center.

In some of these cases, surgery or other more invasive procedures can no longer be avoided or the KKT Medical Team may think there is another type of treatment outside of the KKT center that may be more appropriate for the patient. In these cases, the KKT Medical Team will refer the patient to the best health care professionals outside of the KKT center and advise on the patient’s overall care plan.
