Recovery Room

Cryotherapy

Recovery roomWhole Body Cryotherapy (WBC) is a state of the art cold air therapy designed to quickly reduce musculoskeletal pain and inflammation. The therapy works by standing inside acryotherapy chamber for a treatment session that lasts only 2 to 3 minutes. Cold, dry air is blown over the body to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system. The skin exposure to the extreme temperatures triggers the release of anti-inflammatory hormones and endorphin’s.

This acts as a natural pain killer and helps to lower the systemic inflammation throughout thebody by lowering histamine levels, or inflammation markers.


NormaTec

Recovery roomThe NormaTec Recovery System offers an effective compression therapy to helplegs and arms recover from intense exercise or injury. NormaTec’s founder, LauraF. Jacobs, MD, PhD, a physician bio-engineer, realized this fundamental principle when she developed and patented the Sequential Pulse pneumatic waveform.Nomatec uses Sequential Pulse Technology based on normal physiology that synergistically combines three distinctive massage techniques to speed the body’s normal recovery process. Using the Sequential Pulse Technology found only in a NormaTec Recovery System for just 20 minutes can speed recovery.


Spinal Decompression

Recovery roomNon-Surgical Spinal Decompression is revolutionary for the use in treatment of certain spinal disorders. It is used primarily to treat low back pain and injuries involving bulging or herniated discs causing sciatica pains. Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression treatment consists of cycles.The cycles consist of a prescribed weight or traction, followed by partial relaxation performed by a computer and a traction table. This cumulative “pumping” effect relays nutrients to the torn and degenerated disc fibers, allowing them to heal and become strong.


Crossover Symmetry

Recovery roomCrossover Symmetry is a medically designed rotator cuff and scapular strengthening system engineered to enhance shoulder health and performance. Crossover Symmetry was founded in 2006 by a professional baseball player and a physical therapist with the goal to provide a practical, structured, and efficient shoulder strengthening system for athletes. The programs were developed using the most current research and EMG data to identify the best exercises and techniques to train the scapular stabilizers and rotator cuff. Crossover Symmetry is currently headquartered in Arvada, Colorado.We are currently used by professional athletes in the MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL and over 75% of major NCAA Division I Universities.  Crossover Symmetry is also used a principal training tool among the best Cross Fit athletes and gyms in the world.


TRUE Stretch

Recovery roomThe TRUE Stretch is a revolutionary concept that uses the natural approach to flexibility training. It provides athletes an efficient mobility stretching tool and eliminates the need for floor-based stretching or leaning uncomfortably over equipment or exercise ball. Simply, TRUE Stretch helps athletes reduce their risk of injury. Stretching is exercise! The TRUE Stretch provides a dedicated, self-contained stretching area that allows users a safe platform for comprehensive stretching to increase flexibility.TRUE Stretch effectively stretches the body in all three planes of motion (front to back,side to side, and rotational) while keeping the user in natural upright positions with four points of contact for proper body alignment, stability and safety.


Trigger Point Therapy

Recovery roomTrigger point therapy is one of the fastest-growing and most effective pain therapies in the world. Medical doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists are all beginning to use this technique to relieve patients’ muscle and joint pain, both are conditions that studies have shown to be the cause of nearly 25 percent of all doctor visits. Trigger point therapy branded tools help manage chronic muscle pain by forcing blood and oxygen into areas tightened and constricted due to high intensity workouts or repetitive use injuries. A lack of oxygen to tissues causes cellular deathtermed hypoxia. Fueling muscles with blood and oxygen limits injury.
