Blood Flow Restriction Therapy in Achilles Injury

2019-10-01 07:55:11 | BioPortfolio


Blood flow restriction (BFR) therapy is a brief and partial restriction of venous outflow of an extremity during low load resistance exercises. It is a safe and effective method of improving strength in healthy and active individuals, recovering from orthopedic pathologies and procedures. This prospective, randomized study will look at the implications this form of treatment has on the rehabilitation of Achilles injuries.
