If you are recovering from an injury or surgery, and you are interested in the research proven benefits of our personal blood flow restriction (PBFR) equipment, don’t hesitate to contact us today. Our licensed physical therapists in Fort Myers, Cape Coral & Estero, FL are highly trained in how blood flow restriction works, and they would love to discuss how it may benefit you personally.
Blood flow restriction has been known to treat almost any upper or lower body injury, and it can also be used as a form of rehabilitation following surgery. The compression device with PBFR itself measures the amount of pressure that is recommended for the affected area, in order for the patient to successfully execute each targeted exercise and gain the desired effects.
When performing the exercises, the intended goal of blood flow restriction is to tire out the affected area in order to stimulate the body’s natural healing and tissue-building processes. This process uses 30% of the normal required loads with the same desired benefits. This significant reduction in required load is less stress on any joint or surgical site, thus allowing strengthening to occur where traditional strengthening would not be indicated. The result is accelerated recovery time, so you can get back to living your normal life as quickly as possible.
