Healthcare is a field that is constantly evolving, with new and innovative treatment techniques emerging. In the field of physical therapy, a cutting-edge treatment technique called blood flow restriction training is gaining prominence. Conifer Physical Therapy is proud to be among the local clinics offering this advanced treatment.
How Does Blood Flow Restriction Training Work?
Blood flow restriction training involves the use of a cuff wrapped around the arm or leg to partially impede blood flow during a workout. This technique effectively augments metabolic stress on the muscles without having to do the intense work (exercise) that causes muscle breakdown. The cuff is designed to be tight enough to impede venous blood flow back to the heart while still allowing fresh arterial blood flow into the muscles. This unique approach enables individuals to enhance their muscle strength and mass using relatively light weights or resistance.
The primary advantage of blood flow restriction training is its ability to help individuals stress their muscles without experiencing the same level of wear and tear associated with traditional weight training methods. As a result, it is a suitable treatment option for people of all ages and athletic abilities.
