Blood Flow Restriction Rehab
BFR is a state-of-the-art rehab concept that we are utilizing to improve rehab outcomes. We utilize tourniquets and low-level exercise to alter blood flow dynamics in order to create a cellular and metabolic environment that replicates what happens in the body at high levels of exercise. This allows the body to build muscle while exercising at a low level. This is helpful when we have an individual who may not be able to exercise at the level that is necessary to build muscle. For example, individuals who are post-surgery or individuals who cannot perform higher level exercise without pain because of diagnoses like tendinopathies, osteoarthritis, etc.
