Blood Flow Restriction

True Sports Physical Therapy is proud to offer Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training to our athletes. BFR is a painless cutting-edge rehabilitation technique that involves temporarily decreasing venous blood flow during exercise. Traditionally, in order to build muscle and gain strength, one would have to train by lifting heavy weights. Unfortunately, this isn’t feasible for many patients in the physical therapy setting, particularly those who have recently had surgery. With BFR training, one can exercise with significantly lighter weights while still creating the same hypertrophy and strength response as if they were lifting heavy weights. The result – earlier muscle growth allowing for faster progress, which ultimately means getting you back on the field quicker than ever.

BFR has been proven to produce a 10% increase in muscle size after 2 weeks of BFR at 5-6 days per week or 2x/week for 4-6 weeks. Blood Flow Restriction has also been shown to decrease the healing time of fractures by 26%.
