Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training is a clinical treatment technique with the use of occlusion cuffs similar to a standard blood pressure cuff to occlude arterial and venous 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.
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.
I did not know what to expect before my first visit here. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised. I looked forward to every visit. HJPT has such a positive and encouraging attitude which made each visit a blessing.Sue
