Level 1 Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Certification

Course Description: Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (BFR) is a powerful tool for the rehabilitation and fitness profession. With over 160 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature the efficacy can not be denied. By applying a tourniquetto exercising limbs you can improve strength, hypertrophy and endurance changes while using a very light load within a small space like an athletic training room or small treatment room.

BFR is the act of safely restricting venous blood flow from a working muscle, but allowing arterial blood flow to that working muscle. This is done primarily with low intensity resistance training. Since the ability of that blood to escape is dramatically reduced, metabolic stress and cellular swelling are greatly increased.


Speaker: Ed Le Cara, DC, Ph.D, ATC, MBA
