Personalized Blood Flow Restriction

Personalized blood flow restriction is a method of rehabilitation that increases the effect of low-impact exercises for individuals who may not be able to tolerate more intense forms of strengthening exercises. It works by using a cuff to apply pressure that restricts blood flow in a designated area of muscle. This restriction can lessen the number of exercise repetitions necessary, stimulate faster healing within the muscle, and assist the patient in achieving their rehab goals more quickly. The amount of pressure applied is determined by the patient’s individual circumstances, making this a personalized and customizable approach to rehab.

What Happens During Personalized Blood Flow Restriction?

During personalized blood flow restriction, a cuff will be applied to the area of muscle that is under treatment. The physiotherapist will then use the cuff to apply a personalized amount of pressure to that area in order to trap blood there while you exercise. The cuff will then maintain a steady pressure within the treatment area. Your pressure will be carefully monitored while you complete certain low-impact exercises.
