True Sports Physical Therapy is proud to be the first, and only, clinic in Maryland certified to offer Blood flow restriction (BFR) training to its patients. BFR is a painless cutting-edge rehabilitation technique that involves temporarily decreasing venous blood flow while exercising. 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. However, 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. The result? Earlier strength gains allowing for faster progress, which ultimately means getting you back on the field quicker than anyone else.
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. BFR also shows to decreases healing time of fractures by 26%!
At True Sports we are happy to provide the highest levels of care, expertise and attention to our patients. BFR is just one more example of this.
