Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Rehabilitation is quickly becoming a staple for rehabilitation in the professional and collegiate sports settings. 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. This course will provide an overview of the history, safety, physiologic pathways, and practical application of BFR in a one-hour presentation.



At the conclusion of this program, the learner will be able to:

  1. Articulate a basic understanding of anaerobic metabolism and the associated by-products.
  2. Identify indications and contraindications to the use of Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation.
  3. Describe to patients and peers how BFR can augment a strength and hypertrophy response while using light loads.
