BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION THERAPY
- 1 hr1 hour
- Point Judith Road
Blood flow restriction therapy, termed "BFR" for short, is an up-and-coming treatment in outpatient physical therapy. Supported by an overwhelming amount of evidence in its efficacy and safety, BFR involves placing an FDA-approved tourniquet around a limb and increasing the pressure to occlude a small degree of blood from going into the limb and then performing a light exercise. By exercising with this tourniquet, the patient can "cheat" the body in building muscle and improving strength without actually having to lift heavy weights and without the need to place high amounts of stress through one's joints. Professional athletes and the military have used this revolutionary therapy for decades. Additionally, it allows for expedited recovery and is safe for almost all patient populations. If you're interested in learning more about BFR, don't hesitate to get in touch with our office to set up an appointment and let us show you just how amazing this therapy can be in your recovery.
