blood flow restriction (BFR)

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) therapy is a technique that involves partially restricting blood flow to a limb using inflatable cuffs to stimulate muscle growth and improve strength, similar to traditional weight training, but with lower intensity and potentially faster recovery times.

More about blood flow restriction (BFR)

Traditional strength training can overload newly injured joints or connective tissues. Our Blood Flow Restriction Machine or BFR, restricts blood flow to an area of the body, which in turn builds up the lactic acid produced during exercise, the key component in muscle building.

With BFR, patients can successfully build muscle mass quickly while performing very simple activities. It allows for the benefits of exercise with reduced risks.

Gina clearly explains how to do the exercises she wants me to do and why they will strengthen my knee. I look forward to continuing my therapy appointments and would highly recommend i’move.

I had a wonderful experience with Dave and Jessica after rotator cuff and bicep tendon repair. They were knowledgeable, kind, helpful, reassuring and made my harder than I thought experience quite manageable. I have to say I will miss them! So thankful for i’move and what they have done for me!
