Here at ProMet, we use some of the best technology to help you recover faster and enhance your overall Physical Therapy experience. NormaTec is just one example of the many tools that a physical therapist can use to supplement your treatment plan.
The NormaTec system is an intermittent compression device that uses a patented massage pattern to work on different parts of the body such as the legs, arms and hips. These patterns effectively mimic the natural motions of your limbs to remove metabolites and fluids after intense activity. The pulsing movements are helpful for:
- Preventing injuries
- Redistributing swelling in the limbs following a surgery such as a knee replacement or an injury such as a sprained ankle
- Addressing circulatory conditions such as lymphedema
- Accelerating recovery time
The system is also designed with distal release, which prevents backflow and assists to get blood/fluids pumping back up towards your heart where it can be properly redispersed throughout your body. The benefits of dynamic compression are supported by research.
• Some of the benefits reported by studies include increased flexibility and range-of-motion for the lower extremities after workouts.
It is important to remember that tools such as NormaTec are an additional benefit to stretching, exercise and MOVEMENT to assist you in your road to recovery!
