How can we help you?

Blood flow restriction can be helpful for patients recovering from lower extremity injuries and conditions like meniscus tears. In addition to blood flow restriction therapy for meniscus tears, patients often resort to blood flow restriction therapy for soft tissue injuries and bone stress injuries.

Blood Flow Restriction Therapy Miami

Blood flow restriction (BFR) is an innovative therapy method that allows patients to gain strength without lifting heavy loads, thereby minimizing the overall stress placed on the body. BFR therapy utilizes an FDA-approved occlusion cuff to decrease blood flow to a limb while performing light exercise, which results in exceptional muscular strength and endurance gains.

Typically, to increase muscle size and strength effectively, you need to overload muscle tissue to stimulate growth. However, many of our patients cannot tolerate the loads necessary to gain muscle strength due to injury or pain. But by using BFR physical therapy, we can get similar gains without using heavy weights and, therefore, protect an injured joint.

By restricting blood flow to the muscles of that limb, the muscle is tricked into thinking that it is undergoing a significant breakdown. This stimulates the muscle to signal a greater response for repair, although no real damage is occurring. The body will release growth factors and begin a repair cascade that mirrors that of lifting heavy weights. This technique has been shown to decrease return to activity time in many post-surgical conditions in which the joint cannot be loaded with heavy resistance.

Studies show improved pain relief, at least for the first 6 months when compared to cortisone injection – a safer alternative to a cortisone injection.e

BFR therapy is also a very effective recovery tool used with an athletic population undergoing intense training. Training with BFR therapy on recovery days further stimulates the repair of the muscles without further muscle tissue breakdown.
