What is Blood Flow Restriction Therapy?
Blood flow restriction therapy (BFRT), also known as occlusion training, is a rehabilitation and strength training technique that uses a specialized tourniquet-like device or pressure cuffs to temporarily restrict blood flow to a specific part of the body during exercise. It's a relatively new approach that has gained popularity in the Denver area in the fields of physical therapy, sports medicine, and strength training. The primary goal of BFRT is to promote muscle growth, strength, and rehabilitation while using lighter loads or lower-intensity exercises.
