If you’re looking for a better way to recover from intense training or competitive events, NormaTec Compression Therapy may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Compression therapy coupled with cryotherapy could significantly speed up your recovery time.
Our team at @ Ease Wellness in Duncanville, Texas, utilizes NormaTec Compression Therapy to assist with recovery and rehabilitation following intensive workouts. This sleeve-like massage therapy method helps rid muscles of lactic acid and lymphatic fluids, clearing the way for enhanced recovery and shorter downtime between activities. While this method is most popular among athletes, it can also benefit anyone dealing with poor circulation or working on their feet all day. Whether you’re recovering from a marathon or interested in improving circulation, @ Ease Wellness is here to help.
The technology uses pulsated, sequential pneumatic compression delivered via leg boots similar to a large blood pressure cuff, which feature five chambers that are attached to a control unit and pump. These compression units then utilize compressed air to massage your limbs, leading to mobilized fluid and faster recovery and recuperation following intense exertion. Instead of simply squeezing the limb using static compression, this innovative technology utilizes pulsing, similar to what you would experience in a manual massage. The pulsing alternates between different zones while other areas hold, improving the movement of fluid out of the limbs.
A primary function of these compression sleeves is to engage a lymphatic flush, which enhances a healthy blood flow back into the region by helping to remove waste products, inflammation, and swelling. Additionally, these boots enhance circulation in the legs via the same mechanism. The completely digital system allows for customized, straight forward control of your recovery compression therapy experience. The design of the system molds to your exact body shape when you first turn it on during a pre-inflate cycle. That allows it to provide a snug, custom compression therapy massage just for you.
Compression therapy is an extremely effective recovery method following intense workouts, helping reduce soreness, enhance flexibility, and range of motion. It works by improving the movement of lymphatic fluids out of your muscles, sending blood flow back into the area to remove waste products and reduce inflammation. While many athletes have long used compression shorts or compression socks for a similar effect, NormaTec provides enhanced compression therapy. Some of the benefits include:
These benefits make NormaTec the go-to compression therapy method following endurance workouts like marathons or recovering between training sessions.
