Blood Flow Restriction Training

Blood Flow Restriction Training

One of the fastest growing interventions in the physical therapy world, Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training is truly changing the way rehab is best performed. We use highly specialized equipment to cause amazing changes in injured joints and tissues, always calibrated to the individual to ensure safety. This technique can help improve a wide variety of injuries, ranging from tendonitis and other overuse injuries to helping build muscle and strength back after a surgery.

BFR treatment is extremely safe and is performed by applying a specialized tourniquet to the affected limb while performing light resistance exercise to create a situation that allows for accumulation of lactate in the muscle.  This allows us to simulate the “muscle burn” that you would normally experience after an intense workout without having to use the heavy weights that could place undue stress on your injury or surgery site.  This greatly speeds up healing and the rebuilding of strength following an injury!
