blood flow restriction training helps patients make greater strength training gains while lifting lighter loads
how blood flow restriction works
Using a restrictive blood pressure cuff to occlude blood flow and oxygen, blood-flow restriction training helps patients make greater strength training gains while lifting lighter loads, thereby reducing the overall stress placed on the limb.
health benefits of blood flow restriction
Blood flow restriction therapy safely restricts blood flow to exercising muscles using specialized bands, stimulates muscle growth and strength with lighter weights, and reduces the strain on joints and tendons. This therapy enhances muscle endurance and can accelerate post-injury or post-surgery recovery, making it particularly valuable for rehabilitation. Additionally, BFR can lead to systemic changes like increased growth hormone production and improved cardiovascular function. When integrated into a well-rounded fitness or rehabilitation program under the guidance of a trained professional, BFR therapy can help individuals achieve their health and fitness goals while minimizing the risk of injury and optimizing recovery.
blood flow restriction frequency
The suggested frequency and treatment for blood flow restriction (BFR) therapy should be guided by one of our several physical therapists. Initially, BFR sessions might occur 2-3 times a week for a few weeks to build a foundation. As progress is made, sessions may become less frequent, transitioning to maintenance sessions every 1-2 weeks. The specific protocol will vary based on the individual’s goals, but it’s crucial to follow professional guidance for safe and effective BFR therapy.
