Blood Flow Restriction Therapy
Blood flow restriction therapy decreases or modifies blood flow to a targeted muscle in order to improve and/or maintain strength at lower intensity levels.
- Used in conjunction with an therapeutic exercise program prescribed by your JAG-ONE Physical
Therapist, specifically trained in BFR application
- Strength improvements utilizing BFR have been shown to be comparable to training at much higher intensities, making it an ideal method for those undergoing rehabilitation from injury
- Improves muscular and cardiovascular endurance for patients/athletes that are sidelined from injury, making the transition back to activity an easier process
- Effective for recovering muscle strength following surgeries such as ACL Reconstruction, Rotator Cuff and other surgeries that may require a period of immobilization and/or limited weight bearing
