NormaTec Compression Boots
Compression can be particularly helpful to massage and loosen stiff muscles and joints after a long run or tough workout. This is because Compression may help lactic acids and other build-up in bodily tissues release and be carried through the body. Compression can help to process these wastes, thereby speeding up the time it takes your muscles to recover.
You can choose a 30 or 60 minute session where our expert staff will have you lay down on one of our comfortable lounge chairs, and put our NormaTec Compression boots on your legs. Our Compression boots are comfortable, flexible devices that cover your legs from your foot to above your knee. Relax while the boots gradually fill with pressurized air and then empty out. The result is a light, controlled pressure on your extremities.
Here's how NormaTec Compression Boot therapy works
Compression Sleeves or Boots: Patients or individuals wear specially designed compression sleeves or boots that cover the targeted areas, such as the legs.
Pneumatic Compression: The sleeves or boots are connected to a device that delivers compressed air. This device inflates and deflates the chambers within the sleeves or boots in a sequential manner. The pressure is applied in a wave-like pattern, typically starting from the foot or ankle and moving upward towards the thigh or hip.
Sequential Compression: The sequential compression promotes blood flow by mimicking the natural muscle-pumping action that occurs during physical activity. It helps in reducing swelling, increasing circulation, and removing metabolic waste products from the targeted area.
NormaTec Compression Boot therapy is often used by athletes, especially in sports that involve repetitive and strenuous lower limb movements, such as running or cycling. It can help athletes recover faster after workouts, reduce muscle fatigue, and prevent injuries. Additionally, it is used in clinical settings for various medical conditions, including lymphedema, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) prevention, and chronic venous insufficiency.
Benefits of NormaTec Compression Boot therapy may include:
Improved Circulation: The rhythmic compression helps enhance blood circulation, which can aid in the removal of toxins and reduce swelling.
Faster Recovery: Athletes may experience reduced muscle soreness and quicker recovery times after intense workouts or competitions.
Reduced Edema: It can be beneficial for individuals with conditions characterized by fluid buildup, such as lymphedema or venous insufficiency.
DVT Prevention: In medical settings, it is used to prevent deep vein thrombosis in patients who are at risk.
Enhanced Performance: Athletes may find that improved circulation and reduced muscle fatigue lead to better performance.
It’s important to note that while NormaTec Compression Boot therapy can be beneficial for many individuals, it may not be suitable for everyone. Individuals with certain medical conditions or contraindications should consult with a healthcare professional before using this therapy.
NormaTec is one of several companies that produce compression therapy devices, and there are other brands and models available as well. The specific protocols and settings used during a session can be tailored to an individual’s needs and goals.
