Description

The physical limitations of your patients lead to significant muscle loss during recovery. What if your patients had the ability to increase strength and hypertrophy early in the rehabilitation process without re-injury? With this treatment, they can. Blood flow restriction (BFR) is taking the rehabilitation world by storm.

This Certification Training will build the core competencies you need to bring BFR into your clinical practice and effectively use it with a wide range of client types. You’ll be given a roadmap to treat individuals using the skills and techniques from BFR so you can help your most challenging clients reach new levels of healing:

  • Drastically improve post-surgical recovery time
  • Greater strength gains with lighter loads
  • Increase aerobic capacity and VO2 max
  • Decreased risk of injury and healing time during immobilization

Transform your practice with this SmartCuffs® BFR Certification that will provide several hours of hands-on experience. You’ll feel confident in your BFR skills and will be able to implement this technique into your practice immediately and speed up recovery for your patients.
