Intro to Blood Flow Restriction Training

Blood Flow Restriction (BFRT) is becoming a commonplace physical therapy technique to help strengthen and build muscle without the need to lift heavy weights. This method, as in the name, restricts blood flow using a band that applies pressure around the body part. The band partially restricts blood flow to the muscle and is not dangerous when facilitated by a professional. This causes a whole-body response effect similar to lifting heavy weights without the undue stress on the tissues. Therefore, this procedure is a win-win for individuals rehabilitating from an injury or surgery.

This technique is a great way for most people to achieve the gains they are looking for without over stressing the body. A therapist will curtail this therapeutic intervention to fit the patient’s specific body needs and requirements by measuring the girth of the limb. They will then pump up the device to a comfortable level, without jeopardizing the health or safety of the patient. Improving strength and avoiding overload of the limbs helps to optimize functional gains and recovery time.

The whole-body response that comes away from using BFR is an increase in growth hormone and growth factor which is released into the bloodstream. The body is deceived into believing that it is working harder than it actually is, so muscle builds at a more rapid pace. This technique is perfect for those who wish to build muscle quickly and effectively under the supervision of a physical therapist.
