At Upstate Spine & Sport, our mission is to provide rapid RELIEF, RECOVERY, & RESULTS.

We are here to help with anything from non-surgical pain relief to overall wellness & performance.


Enter the NormaTec PULSE Recovery System — a dynamic compression device designed for recovery and rehab. The system uses NormaTec’s patented PULSE technology to help individuals recover faster between training and after a performance. If you Google NormaTec you’ll find pro athletes like Lebron James, Shaquille O’Neal, or our local Hincapie Racing Team utilizing the technology.

The system includes a control unit and attachments for the legs or hips that use compressed air to massage limbs, mobilize fluid, and speed recovery. First, you will 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 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.

The NormaTec Recovery System is an air pressure massage indicated to relieve minor muscle aches and/or pains and to increase circulation to the treated areas.



The risks and benefits of using the NormaTec Recovery System are the same as having a massage. If the pressure feels uncomfortable, you can reduce the intensity or stop the session. Similar to a massage, the benefits can include the relief of minor muscle aches and pains. It can also increase circulation in the area being massaged.
