Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

Our Approach To Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

Are you getting the most out of your workouts? Do you recuperate fast enough during rehabilitation? If you’re an athlete who wants to achieve your maximum potential or recover more quickly after surgery or injury, we offer Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Therapy. We use it to help you get stronger and recover faster between workouts. It can even help improve your VO2 Max, which is the maximum amount of oxygen the body uses during intense exercise, in as fast as two weeks. What’s more, it improves healing after injury or surgery and offers people with thyroid dysfunction a way to maintain muscle mass. We customize a program for you, integrating it into your training program.

Benefits Of Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

  • Enhances strength and muscle growth by encouraging oxygen delivery
  • Helps to repair tissue, speed bone healing after a fracture, and reduce muscle loss after surgery
  • Rebuilds muscle without a heavy load, which is great after surgery or injury
  • Improves VO2 Max, which helps improve training efficiency

Blood Flow Restriction Therapy Is Good for Anyone Who:

  • Wishes to reach training goals faster
  • Is recovering from an injury and wants results without a heavy workout
  • Is looking for a performance edge
  • Wants quicker recovery between training sessions, such as endurance runners and cyclists
  • Wants to maximize training results, particularly bodybuilders, powerlifters, and crossfitters
  • Has difficulties maintaining muscle mass because of thyroid dysfunction
  • Wants to retain muscle mass after surgery, such as ACL repair

Your Visit

We begin with a full health history to make sure you are healthy enough for blood flow restriction therapy. Then we assess your training goals to determine the best blood flow restriction therapy protocol for you, developing a personalized training program that may focus on building strength, improving VO2 Max, or increasing muscle size. We supervise restricting blood flow using a pneumatic restriction cuff (like a blood pressure cuff) that’s inflated on your arm or leg.

Want to know more? What is Blood Flow Restriction Therapy?

Blood flow restriction therapy is a safe, low intensity form of resistance training that stimulates increases in size and strength using a medical device tourniquet or cuff. Blood flow is restricted to reduce oxygen to the working muscle, creating an artificially high intensity workout that produces lactic acid. It allows blood to flow out through the arteries, but restricts return flow through the veins. It’s believed that this causes cellular swelling, which makes the muscles grow. As a result, it produces the outcomes of high intensity training in less time, with less load and damage.

You can use blood flow restriction therapy after surgery, such as arthroscopy or ACL surgery, to build muscles while you recuperate. This is essential, because our muscles tend to atrophy by 30 percent after just two weeks of bedrest or immobility, yet it’s important to maintain muscle mass to heal. Blood flow restriction therapy research shows that it can help rehabilitate weak limbs and build muscle without heavy loading.

There are blood flow restriction therapy contraindications. You should consult your doctor prior to blood flow restriction therapy, which is typically not recommended for people with varicose veins, deep-vein thrombosis, cardiac disease, and high blood pressure. Pregnant women should not perform blood flow restriction therapy.

What does it feel like?

A pneumatic restriction cuff is wrapped around your arm or leg, causing pressure, but not numbness or tingling, during training. The results are amazing!

Is it possible to do this on yourself?

We recommend that you consult our experts to make sure you are using a safe and appropriate level of blood flow restriction during therapy and training.

Is it painful?

We make sure you’re using the proper technique to minimize any discomfort. You may feel pressure and a slight burning sensation, but that’s normal. It’s associated with temporarily reducing oxygen levels to the muscle, which helps produce lactate and stimulates muscle growth.
