Blood flow restriction therapy

Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

Blood flow restriction therapy is an innovative physical therapy technique applied to the proximal portion of a limb using a specialized tourniquet or cuff to temporarily restrict blood flow to the site while exercising. The goal is to trigger physiological changes that increase muscle strength and size, decrease muscle damage, and improve cardiovascular fitness.

Blood Flow Restriction Therapy FAQs

Blood flow restriction therapy does not hurt. However, deconditioned patients may experience some discomfort in the initial stages.
BFRT is safe for most people. However, we do not recommend it for individuals with certain medical conditions like severe high blood pressure or a blood clotting disorder.
With regular BFRT sessions, you may notice significant muscle strength between 2-4 weeks and increased muscle size by 8-12 weeks.
