Compression Therapy Q & A

What is compression therapy?

Compression therapy is a holistic treatment option for reducing leg soreness and pain and helping your muscles recover from strenuous exercise or an injury.

The team at Capital Cryo uses the NormaTec leg pulse system. It utilizes compressed air to create sequential pulsing motions over your leg muscles that feels like a vigorous massage. This massaging action helps mobilize fluid in your legs and removes lactic acid build-up to relieve leg swelling and pain.

You can use the NormaTec Leg Pulse system in the convenience of your own home for at-home leg recovery by renting it from Capital Cryo for one or more nights. 

The system is easy to use and involves slipping on comfortable leg attachments that connect to the pulse control unit. The attachments fill up with compressed air to massage your legs as you sit back and relax.

The team offers convenient pick-up and delivery options to meet your needs and discounts for their Recovery & Relief members and their Rejuvenation & Lifestyle members.


Why should I consider compression therapy?

Compression therapy is an effective way to relax after strenuous physical activity. You can use the NormaTec system to treat persistent muscle soreness and pain in your legs following an injury.

You can also benefit from compression therapy if you have a circulatory disorder or swelling issues, such as deep vein thrombosis and lymphedema. The NormaTec system is effective at reducing inflammation, decreasing swelling in fat cells, and eliminating other byproducts to improve your overall leg health.


What are the benefits of compression therapy?

Compression therapy is a safe and holistic way to address pain in your legs, so you can reduce your reliance on medications. The NormaTec system can also:

  • Prevent pain
  • Treat swelling
  • Calm inflammation
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Accelerate muscle recovery

Additionally, compression therapy can help prevent complications that relate to leg swelling and circulatory deficiencies, such as spider veins and varicose veins.
