Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (PBFR) is a paradigm shifting intervention for the rehabilitation professional with over 160 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature. By applying a surgical grade 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. By attending the course clinicians will:
•Communicate the physiology behind mechanical tension compared to metabolic accumulation training and the downstream effects.
•Manipulate blood flow restriction protocols to create a local or systemic response within the soft tissues.
•Differentiate limb occlusion pressures objectively for each individual athlete/patient.
•Translate appropriate tourniquet safety measures to the outpatient/training room setting.
•Recommend and implement a rehabilitation blood flow restriction protocol for patients after injury or surgery.
Testimonial: Danielle Mah, Head Physiotherapist and Medical Manager: Rugby Canada:
“ BFR has made a huge difference in the Return to Performance strategies for our athletes. It has enhanced our high performance environment by providing an avenue of training that is safe, and effective in the acute and early period of injury/surgical recovery. It has been by far, the most effective in maintaining and rebuilding muscle bulk, and an extremely well received intervention by the athletes. Our players are grateful for a way to train and counter atrophy in their injury return.”
“ The BFR education was extremely useful for our medical staff at Rugby Canada. The course provided a great introduction to the newest of technology in blood flow restriction training, which has been traditionally a largely Strength and Conditioning-based intervention. This course was very reputable, highlighted safety, and was medically centred. The information provided was clinically relevant, and Susan was a very knowledgeable, and evidence-based instructor. Her delivery was clear and provided confidence in its usage following the course. This has been the most effective modality I have seen in the last decade for rehabilitation and sport performance, and would recommend this course to anyone who doesn’t want to be left behind.”
