Blood Flow Restriction

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training is a clinical treatment technique that uses occlusion cuffs, similar to a standard blood pressure cuff, to occlude arterial and venous blood flow. It occludes blood flow at measurable and patient specific amounts into either the upper or lower extremities with the purpose of creating an environment for healing and/or muscle hypertrophy for multiple musculoskeletal diagnoses.

What to Expect

Your trained therapist will measure your individual limb occlusion pressure to determine an appropriate working pressure of your extremities. The blood pressure cuff will be inflated to that level at which point you will go through a protocol of either inflation and deflation of the cuff or performance of a pre-determined exercise to target the appropriate soft tissue.

Therapists

I experienced you as kind, clear and direct in your communication, and collaborative in planning the treatment plan and schedule. Even through the Covid-19 shut down you stayed in touch to assure understanding.  I appreciate the financial arrangements you made to offer therapy even when the insurance request was denied.
