Normatec in Marietta

Chiropractic Marietta GA Normatec

NormaTec is the ultimate recovery device. This cutting edge pulse technology can increase circulation and improve mobility for those who work out regularly, are training for a competition or race, experience swollen legs from traveling frequently, stand for long hours on the job, or suffer from inflammation, sore muscles, or other circulatory issues.

Normatec Pulse Technology utilizes a patented three step, dynamic compression system that is designed to mimic the body's circulatory system. The therapy mobilizes fluid from the legs up towards your core, increasing circulation and lymphatic drainage. The pulsing action of the therapy has been found to more effectively mimic the body’s natural “pumping” action of the muscles and lymphatic system better than static compression. Additionally, the hold patterns built into the pulse cycle, prevents fluid from moving in the wrong direction, working synergistically with the body natural lymphatic flow. This process allows for increased nutrients and oxygen to the muscles while flushing out metabolic waste products such as lactic acid and inflammatory chemicals. Many people describe a “fresh” or “light” feeling in their legs after treatment.

HOW NORMATEC THERAPY PERFORMED?

The system consists of a set of pressurized boots or sleeves that are zipped onto each leg. There is a pre-inflation stage in which you will feel the boot begin to tighten onto your leg in order to shape the boot to your leg and maintain consistent pressure throughout the therapy. Once the pre-inflation portion is complete, you will begin to feel segmental compression starting at the foot and then work its way up your legs. Once it reaches full compression, the boot will release back to its pre-inflated state and begin again. A session lasts anywhere from 10-20 minutes can be set to 10 different pressure levels depending on your comfort level. The session should never be painful, so it is important to communicate your comfort level throughout the therapy.

Imagine being able to work out harder, play longer and heal faster! That’s what this technology does for you. The Normatec has the capability to pump more fluid from the limbs at a much quicker rate than traditional manual therapy or lymphatic massage. Helping the body’s natural ability to heal and repair, it’s an amazing addition to any strenuous physical activity or training program.
