Blood Flow Restriction

Maintain strength during injury rehabilitation

Scan and detect injured tissues

Break down scar tissue

Rearrange connective tissue

Break down fascia restrictions caused by soft tissue injuries

Initiate the healing process

BFR can help you stay strong during recovery from musculoskeletal injuries or surgery and can reduce the loss of conditioning by providing the ability to exercise uninjured tissues during the recovery period with non or low-load exercise.

  • Less recovery time
  • Avoid muscle atrophy and loss of fitness
  • Systemic anabolic response optimizes the gains made from recovery program
  • Facilitates healing to restore the strength and endurance to the muscle

BFR training is an exercise technique that manipulates the body’s circulatory system, and when combined with exercise, produces rapid gains in strength and fitness using light-weights, and in a very short period of time. How does it work?

Inflatable bands are worn around the upper portion of the arms and/or legs to safely slow the blood in the limb.

The bands are inflated to safe, individualized pressures.

Simple, low-load exercise produces profound muscle “burn” comparable to intense anaerobic training.

This strong fatigue triggers a natural, robust, hormonal cascade, which in turn produces hypertrophy and strength gains on par with heavy exercise or traditional weight lifting.

The hormones circulating in the blood stream benefit all areas of the body that were working, not just the restricted limb(s) creating a “Systemic Response.”
