Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (PBFR) is a paradigm-shifting intervention for the rehabilitation professional with hundreds of peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature. Applying a tourniquet briefly and intermittently to an exercising limb can induce significant and substantial strength, hypertrophy, and endurance changes while using a very light load.


At the conclusion of the course, the healthcare provider will be proficient in the science and mechanisms of blood flow restriction (BFR). Additionally, they will be versed in the application of BFR for clinical applications and the appropriate risks and contraindications. Competency will be demonstrated during lab check-offs in proper tourniquet system use, limb occlusion pressure determination, and exercise prescription and monitoring. Lastly, proficiency will also be demonstrated on a post-course examination.
