How Does NormaTec Queens Work?

Image of boxers to convey the benefits of Sports Rehab Glendale NY - ProMet PTThe NormaTec therapy uses a combination of boots, sleeves, and other devices to apply therapeutic pressure to treat various parts of the body. The goal is to help your muscles naturally pump to facilitate circulation. NormaTec’s Sequential Pulse Technology relies on compression to follow a specific sequence along your limbs to optimize blood flow and improve your lymphatic drainage. The technology ultimately boosts the removal of waste from your muscles to help enhance your athletic performance, reduce pain, and so much more.

What Conditions Does NormaTec Treat?

Although NormaTec is often recommended for athletes to combat muscle soreness, it can also help people with conditions like lymphedema and poor circulation. The stimulation of lymphatic drainage helps reduce inflammation and promote the elimination of metabolic waste. Depending on your physical issues and long-term goals, the physical therapists at ProMet PT may recommend it to ease chronic pain, as a tool for your rehabilitation, and to enhance your overall wellness.

How Long Does a NormaTec Treatment Take?

All of the treatment plans at ProMet PT are tailored to meet our patients’s unique needs. We may suggest different strategies for each of our clients, but a NormaTec Queens therapy session usually lasts between 20 and 30 minutes. Your physical therapist will work with you to determine the optimal session length and which therapies to add to help you rediscover your best self and enhance your performance.

Does NormaTec Hurt?

When applied by a professional, NormaTec therapy should not hurt or be too uncomfortable to relax. The sensation is usually comparable to a gentle massage that works to apply and release pressure. However, if you are especially sensitive to pressure, your physical therapist may make adjustments for a more comfortable and productive experience. Your ProMet PT physical therapists are here to customize your care and collaborate with you to find the best therapies to work for you.

What is the History of NormaTec?

NormaTec was founded by Dr. Laura F. Jacobs, who was a physician and rehabilitation specialist. Jacobs saw the need for more effective treatment options for patients with circulatory-related conditions. At its inception, NormaTec launched as a medical device company that focused on enhancing blood flow and promoting deeper healing in patients. Over time, NormaTec refined its approach, expanded into the sports arena and gained more popularity among athletes for its effectiveness in reducing recovery time and enhancing performance. Today, it is a standard in sports recovery centers, physical therapy programs, and clinics around the world.

Is NormaTec Recommended for Everyone?

No, NormaTec is not a good fit for everyone. It’s important to work with a skilled physical therapist to help facilitate your recovery according to your needs. NormaTec Queens may be recommended as part of your overall rehabilitation strategy, but it is not recommended for everyone. Your physical therapist may recommend a different therapy for your unique needs, such as our Knock Your Lights Out Program for boxers.

NormaTec may not be a viable choice for every patient with pre-existing conditions. For example, someone suffering from artery disease or deep vein thrombosis is probably not a candidate for NomaTech. Your physical therapist at ProMet PT will recommend different therapies to meet your needs and help get you on the path to recovery.
