Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (PBFR) is a paradigm shifting intervention for the rehabilitation professional with hundreds of peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature. By applying a tourniquet briefly and intermittently to an exercising limb you can induce significant and substantial strength, hypertrophy and endurance changes while using a very light load. By attending this one day training course for PBFR training, clinicians will be able to:

  • Translate the physiology behind mechanical tension compared to metabolic accumulation training and the downstream effects.
  • Manipulate blood flow restriction protocols to create a local or systemic response within the soft tissues.
  • Differentiate limb occlusion pressures objectively for each individual athlete/patient.
  • Translate appropriate tourniquet safety measures to the outpatient/training room setting.
  • Recommend and implement a rehabilitation blood flow restriction protocol for patients after injury or surgery
I have seen great gains in strength from patients in the clinic to professional athletes in approximately 3-4 weeks using Blood Flow Restriction. This tool has been an influential game-changer in my practice. Steve Scher, Detroit Lions, Team Rehabilitation
