Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

Blood flow restriction (BFR) therapy is a brief and intermittent occlusion of blood flow using a tourniquet while exercising. Exercising with occlusion of blood flow allows for much lighter resistance during a particular exercise with significant strength gains that are typically the result of much higher intensity activity. This can be used in cases where challenging an arm or a leg with external resistance or load is either painful or not allowed due to post surgical limitations.  We utilize a FDA approved medical device (Delfi personalized tourniquet system) to customize the amount of tourniquet pressure to each patient. The results of  BFR therapy include strength gains, increased muscle size, increased release of growth hormone for healing, and pain relief.
