Cherry Creek Spine and Sport Clinic offers a recovery room for athletes to manage their own overuse and soft tissue injuries. This room has mobility and soft tissue recovery tools to aid in a faster and more efficient healing process from intense workouts. Access to our recovery room allows for use of common equipment seen in gyms, clinics, or at doctors offices. Access to the recovery room can be on a walk-in basis anytime during our normal business hours. Fees for use can range from a one time use to a monthly membership. Some athletes aren’t injured but often feel functional deficits that limit their full ability to move without restriction. Common overuse areas such as shoulders, hips, neck or back are susceptible to conditions that can be prevented with “prehab” exercises. Comprehensive functional exercises can help retrain poor biomechanics commonly referred to as upper and lower crossed syndromes. Correction of postural, biomechanics, or functional deficits can often help prevent repetitive soft-tissue injuries and improve athletic performance. Scheduling with one of our doctors can help you organize your specific recovery plan into an efficient use of time to attain functional goals. The long term goal for our doctors is to improve the body’s efficiency and skill of movement, thus reducing incident of injury.
The NormaTec Recovery System offers an effective compression therapy to help legs and arms recover from intense exercise or injury. NormaTec’s founder, Laura F. Jacobs, MD, PhD, a physician bioengineer, 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. While a healthy athlete’s body eventually will recover from an intense workout, using the Sequential Pulse Technology found only in a NormaTec Recovery System for just 20 minutes can speed recovery.
