WHITNEY DIGITAL TRACTION DEVICE
Digital Traction Therapy is a time- tested therapeutic modality for improving joint mobility and digital alignment for many common toe and metatarsophalangeal joint pathologies. Such traction therapy is effective in the treatment of hallux limitus and joint stiffness which may follow first ray surgical procedures. Digital traction is also utilized for corrective realignment therapy of lesser digital contractions such as hammertoe and clawtoe deformities. Digital Traction Therapy should be billed with the CPT code # 97012, for “traction, mechanical” as a supervised modality.
