NormaTec® Recovery

Recover faster between workouts by reducing muscle soreness and improving circulation

One of our services we offer at Spine and Sport Cente is recovery from training or injury. We use the NormaTec PULSE Recovery system to help our patients and athletes speed up the recovery process. NormaTec® are the leaders in rapid recovery systems and gives some of the world's top athletes, coaches and trainers the competitive edge.

Our goal is to establish recovery as an integral part of every athlete’s training, and we feel NormaTec systems are the best way to accomplish that. The NormaTec PULSE Recovery Systems are dynamic compression devices designed for recovery and rehab. All of our systems use NormaTec's patented PULSE technology to help athletes recover faster between trainings and after performance.

Our systems include a control unit and attachments which go on the legs, arms, or hips. They use compressed air to massage your limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery with our patented NormaTec PULSE Massage Pattern. When you use our systems, you will first experience a pre-inflate cycle, during which the connected attachments are molded to your exact body shape.

The session will then begin by compressing your 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 your limb.

What makes NormaTec® different?

Pneumatic compression technology has been used in medicine for years, but the pulse technology takes dynamic compression to a whole new level, and is tailored to the needs of an athlete.

The NormaTec system was the first of its kind, designed to mimic normal physiology in the body, and is the leader for athletic recovery and performance.

Sequential Pulse Technology

The most important element for compression is the massage pattern. Instead of using “static” compression to “squeeze” fluid out of the limb. NormaTec uses the “NormaTec PULSE Massage Technology”, also referred to as “pulsing”.

This pulsing action more effectively mimics the muscle pump of the legs or arms, greatly enhancing the movement of fluid from the limbs after an intense workout. This technology is patented, putting NormaTec way ahead of the technology curve.


The veins and lymphatic vessels in the body have one way valves that prevent fluid back flow. Similarly, the NormaTec PULSE Technology uses hold pressures to keep the fluid from moving in the wrong direction.

Due to this enhancement, there is no tapering off of pressure, therefore delivering maximum pressure in each of the zones.

The NormaTec PULSE Massage Pattern pulses and releases the hold pressures to prevent fluid back flow, working in partnership with the bodies natural circulatory flow. Each portion of the limb gets maximal rest time without needing a large pause between rest cycles.
