People who participate in sporting activities are vulnerable to injuries that cause lingering pain and discomfort. Some of these injuries take time to heal, making it hard for athletes to stick to their training and competing schedules. That’s why our team offers Normatec.
Normatec is an effective and clinically proven recovery-enhancing method. At Capitol Rehab of Crofton, we use this technology to help reduce recovery time on various injuries such as strains and sprains in the arms, legs, and lower body. Athletes throughout the world use this method for safe and non-invasive, rapid recovery. Our Crofton chiropractors will provide a thorough examination to determine the extent of your sports injury and create a treatment plan customized for your unique needs.
What Is Normatec, and How Does It Work?
Normatec refers to compression devices useful for sports rehab and recovery. These devices have a system that consists of a control unit and various attachments to the hips, legs, or arms. The physical therapy technology uses pressure massage to relieve pain and muscle aches and promote blood flow to the affected area, among other benefits.
When you first use the system, a pre-inflate cycle will mold the attachments to your body shape. The session then starts by pressing the feet, hands, or any other part depending on the kind of attachments used. The same way massage uses stroking and kneading, all the segments of the attachment compress in a pulsing design and then release. A single session lasts around 30 minutes, and you may need to attend a few sessions to achieve desired results. A session might also take longer depending on the severity of a patient’s condition.
