What is Compression Therapy?
Compression Therapy is a modality using a patented pulse technology to boost recovery. The dynamic compression device uses compressed air to massage limbs, mobilize fluid, and fight inflammation. Limbs are inserted into sleeves that inflate to compress the muscles. The compression system then pulses up the limbs, squeezing pain-causing fluid & lactic acid out. The limbs are then replenished with fresh blood, stimulating recovery.
Our innovative compression systems are designed by NormaTec. Your Lymphatic system is designed to remove garbage and toxins from your body. But, this process can take long periods of time. Think of it as the garbage disposal of your body. The challenge is, it doesn’t have a pump. One of the reasons we get sick is because this system gets backed (Lymphatic Overload). Especially in people who don’t stay active. The build-up of toxins creates a perfect environment for illness to flourish, similar to the way bacteria can form on garbage. Now, add viruses… How will the body rid of the toxins generated by viruses when your Lymphatic System is overloaded? Stop by today and let’s flush your Lymphatic System!
How does Compression help?
Many leading athletes, trainers and fitness enthusiasts around the world currently use this technology. NormaTec uses a patented massage pattern that works on different parts of the body. There are devices that attach to the arms, hips and legs. These are sophisticated systems that effectively mimic the natural motions of the arms and legs to remove metabolites and fluids from the limbs after intense activity. The pulsing movements are helpful for preventing injuries and accelerating recovery time.
The benefits of NormaTec Pulse include enhanced blood flow and dynamic compression that ensures that fluids leave the limbs after intense workouts. The system is also designed with distal release, which prevents backflow. The benefits of dynamic compression are supported by research. Some of the benefits reported by studies include increased flexibility and range-of-motion for the lower extremities after workouts. As NormaTec increases in popularity, it’s being used in a variety of settings. Sports teams, CrossFit athletes, runners, cyclists and triathletes are among the people who use this technology.
NormaTec offers two different systems for the need of different types of users. The Pulse, which is designed for individual athletes and small teams: benefits include performance enhancements and faster recovery. Pulse Pro is an advanced rehab and recovery system that lets users customize every aspect of their sessions. This system is suitable for post-op and post-injury use. We utilize both systems at REJUUV Wellness.
Each compression session ls approximately 30 minutes, delivering advanced results such as:
• Improving your cardio vascular system
• Reducing fatigue
• Post-athletic music repair
• Eliminating blood clots
• Performance enhancements
• Rapid recovery
• and More.
Common conditions treated with compression therapy
(Below are some common conditions treated with compression therapy).
Chronic venous insufficiency
One of the common conditions treated with compression therapy is poor blood flow, known as chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). CVI affects about 25 to 40 percent of women and 10 to 20 percent of men.
CVI is often associated with:
• varicose veins
• blood clots
Edema is fluid collection that causes swelling in the legs, ankles, or other areas. It can have many causes, including:
• varicose veins
• sitting and standing for long periods of time
Deep vein thrombosis
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) develops when a blood clot forms in one of the veins, often in a leg. It’s considered a serious condition, as a clot can travel to the lungs and become life threatening.
Risk factors for DVT include:
• prolonged inactivity
Diabetes is a common cause of leg ulcers, which are open sores or wounds on the legs. Leg ulcers also associated with varicose veins and poor blood circulation.
