Blood Flow Restricted Training

Improving muscular strength is an important goal of physical therapy. Symptoms such as pain and stiffness are common road blocks to building strength when recovering from injury. 

A new, cutting-edge treatment called Blood Flow Restricted Training (BFRT) has been found to improve muscular strength even in the presence of pain and other limiting symptoms.

BFRT involves the application of a specialized tourniquet system to partially occlude blood flow to the injured limb. Light exercise is then performed for 5-10 minutes. Under this hypoxic (no oxygen) environment, large, fast twitch muscle fibers are recruited. This allows patients to make greater strength gains while lifting lighter loads, thereby reducing the overall stress placed on muscles and joints. BFRT is a proven treatment that allows patients to safely improve strength while recovering from an injury.

Blood Flow Restricted Training is used for athletes and non-athletes alike.  Whether you are recovering from a sports injury or suffering from arthritic pain, BFRT can help you build strength and get back to the activities you love.

Here's what some of our patients had to say

My pain was so bad it was impacting my running and making my training very difficult and painful. With their help I was able to achieve my goal of qualifying for the Boston Marathon! I am so thankful to all the staff for all they did for me and making me feel like I was…

This place is amazing. The people are outstanding. I love the way they explain what to do and why and will remind you when you forget. They are kind and realize you may be hurting. They are always timely and friendly. I thank all of you.

I came to BRPT Lake at the Lee Drive location after ACL reconstruction and meniscus surgery. Jamie, Donna and YuYi have all been just wonderful! I’ll be glad when therapy is over, but I will miss all these ladies.

five stars Theresa A. BPRT Lake Patient

Best place ever. I had at least 4 separate injuries/surgeries where I needed therapy for my knee and back. Each time Tyler, Seth and crew got me back on track. You can’t beat their personal attention to your specific needs.
