ProMet came highly referred to me and now I know why! I started working with them to heal an injury. Antonio was awesome and had me pain free and moving as I was prior to my injury. All of the staff is extremely attentive, knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. Everyone works as a team here. The hours are very flexible and scheduling was a breeze. The front desk staff make everything seamless! I continue to work with Brian through the BuildU program each week to meet my health and fitness goals. Brian is extremely knowledgeable, motivating, and keeps me on track. I haven't often been successful with workout regimens until I came to ProMet. In only a few months I have improved my fitness level beyond what I thought I was capable of. Brian makes my workouts fun yet challenging and tailors them to help me reach my fitness goals. I always leave ProMet feeling accomplished. Definitely recommend ProMet whether it is for rehabilitating an injury or personal fitness. I have been to other physical therapists and personal trainers in the past and no one else measures up to ProMet. Their staff and service is unmatched!

What Conditions Does NormaTec Treat?

We often recommend NormaTec to athletes experiencing muscle soreness, but it can also be used by a wide variety of patients. For example, it may be helpful for people with lymphedema and poor circulation issues. When your body is stimulated properly, it can also help with lymphatic drainage to reduce inflammation and promote the elimination of metabolic waste. Our physical therapists work with you to find the right amount of pressure in your NormaTec therapy to ease your deep, chronic pain or empower your rehabilitation.

Is NormaTec Uncomfortable?

When NormaTec therapy is administered by a professional, it shouldn’t be so uncomfortable that you can’t relax. The sensation is more like a massage that helps release pressure in specific areas of your body. If you find that you’re sensitive to pressure, we’ll work with you and make adjustments for a more comfortable therapy session. No matter what’s going on, your ProMet PT physical therapist will customize your therapy to find the right solution for you.

Who Can Use NormaTec?

NormaTec therapy is a powerful and effective treatment methodology, but may not be the right course of action for you. If you have pre-existing conditions, such as artery disease or deep vein thrombosis, NormaTec may not be appropriate. Instead, we may recommend a different therapy to get you on the path to healing and recovery. No matter where you receive your NormaTed therapy, make sure to disclose any pre-existing conditions and issues to ensure you receive the right treatment plan for you.

In some situations, we may suggest NormaTec in combination with other therapies. For example, we often recommend our Knock Your Lights Out program to boxers recovering from injuries and deep fatigue. From IASTM treatment to wellness training, we offer a range of proven treatments to help you get back to your best self. Contact us today to schedule an assessment.

What is NormaTec’s History?

NormaTec therapy was first founded by Dr. Laura F. Jacobs, a rehabilitation specialist and doctor. Jacobs wanted to explore treatment options for patients with circulatory-related conditions and saw a need in the market. The company first launched to help patients enhance blood flow and find new ways to heal. NormaTec eventually expanded into the athletic world and is now renowned among athletes looking to enhance performance while reducing recovery time. You can find NormaTec used in all types of settings, from sports clinics to more traditional medical settings.
