The Recovery Room

       Introducing The Recovery Room at Pearl Physical Therapy! 

Using state-of-the-art technology, we've created the ultimate recovery experience to help with post workout, post training, inflammation, swelling, sore muscles, and other circulatory issues! 

What is Normatec? 

The NormaTec PULSE Series is a pneumatic compression device that utilizes patented technology to increase circulation to the limbs. NormaTec was founded by a physician and bioengineer as a medical company to help treat circulatory conditions. They later worked directly with top athletic programs to develop the NormaTec PULSE Series. Using NormaTec’s leg, arm, or hip attachments boosts blood flow and reduces pain and soreness. In addition to these benefits, studies show that NormaTec decreases inflammation, clears metabolites, and increases range of motion.

NormaTec pairs compression with a sophisticated massage pattern, employing three key forms of biomimicry, including pulsing, gradients, and distal release. The patented pulsing action uses dynamic compression, effectively mimicking the muscle pump of the legs and arms, to greatly enhance the movement of fluid and metabolites out of the limbs. NormaTec utilizes hold pressures similar to the one-way valves of veins and lymphatic vessels, preventing fluid backflow, and enhancing the natural circulatory flow. The distal release feature releases hold pressures once they are no longer needed, ensuring that each portion of the limb gains maximal rest time without a significant pause between compression cycles.

NormaTec is a clinically proven method to enhance recovery and reduce pain and soreness. The user will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the attachments fill with air to calibrate and mold to their exact body shape. The session will then begin by compressing the feet, hands, or upper quad(depending on which attachment you are using.) Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the attachment will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up the limb. This stimulates blood flow, massages the muscles, and works in harmony with the body’s circulatory system to mobilize fluid out of the extremities and back up towards the heart.

Combine with the power of BEMER technology!

BEMER therapy is an exciting new technology that we have incorporated into our office to maximize the effects of our intervention. BEMER, or Bio-Electromagnetic Energy Regulation, helps to increase circulation throughout the body by up to 30%. Blood, the basis of our circulatory system, helps to transport oxygen, nutrients, immune cells, hormones, and waste. When an individual’s cells, tissues and organs are able to receive the supplies they need, and expel the wastes they must dispose of, the individual’s body is healthier. After using BEMER, your blood vessels are able to transport all of these materials more efficiently for up to 18 hours. Therefore, BEMER uses your own body’s natural healing and self-regulating processes to help your body perform and recover optimally.
