NormaTec Compression Therapy
Recover Faster With NormaTec Compression Therapy
NormaTec compression therapy is a non-invasive way to enhance recovery, relieve muscle soreness and fatigue, and promote healing. NormaTec utilizes a system of compression boots or sleeves that apply various levels of intermittent pneumatic pressure to different areas of the body, such as the legs, arms, or hips. This convenient compression therapy is utilized by professional and amateur athletes for sports recovery and by physical or occupational therapists for rehabilitation and recovery from injuries and surgery.
How Compression Therapy Works
Pneumatic Compression: NormaTec uses a sequential pneumatic compression technique through various overlapping zones. This means the boot or sleeve inflates and deflates in a specific pattern that has been designed to stimulate circulation and aid in fluid movement.
Dynamic Gradient Technology: The therapy utilizes a patented dynamic gradient technology that applies pressure in a gradient manner, starting from the farthest end of the limbs and progressing towards your body. This sequential gradient pressure helps enhance circulation and lymphatic flow.
What Compression Therapy Does
- Enhanced Recovery: NormaTec compression therapy improves recovery by reducing muscle soreness, swelling, and inflammation associated with injury or surgery. The rhythmic compression and decompression helps with metabolic waste product removal, such as lactic acid, from the muscles, which can lead to quicker recovery times.
- Increased Circulation: The intermittent pressure applied by the NormaTec compression system is designed to help improve blood circulation, which can enhance the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the muscles and surrounding tissues. This increased blood flow can help aid in tissue repair and regeneration, further improving your recovery.
- Lymphatic System Support: NormaTec sequential compression therapy assists the lymphatic system in removing any excess fluid and toxins from the body. The sequential compression action mimics the natural movement and circulation of the lymphatic system, helping to reduce any swelling or edema that may be causing inflammation and pain.
What Makes NormaTec Compression Therapy Better
Customizable Sessions: NormaTec devices have been continuously refined and improved since conception. Their system offers adjustable settings, allowing users to control the intensity, duration, and pattern of compression. This customization allows our trained providers to personalize treatment based on individual patient needs and comfort levels.
Versatile Applications: While NormaTec may be popular among athletes for post-workout recovery or sports related injuries, it is also utilized in various medical settings. It has been found to be beneficial for people with conditions such as lymphedema, venous insufficiency, peripheral artery disease, and post-surgical swelling. The experienced providers at NJ Sports Spine & Wellness Matawan and Marlboro, NJ locations will provide a personalized consultation to see how NormaTec compression therapy can help you get better faster.
