Blood Flow Restriction Therapy
We believe that strengthening is important for recovery but sometimes, due to structural issues or pain, the load required for strengthening is not tolerable. Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) therapy is a unique method of getting the benefit of heavy-load resistance training with a lighter load and is supported by research.
Blood flow restriction (BFR) rehabilitation is the brief and intermittent occlusion of blood flow using a cuff while exercising. Using this technique, you can exercise with significantly lighter weight and achieve similar effects of muscle growth to lifting a heavy weight when healthy. This is also a very effective intervention to decrease pain that you may be having. Research supports the use and safety of BFR.
