Knowledge Gap

While BFR is an established modality in the world of strength training, there is minimal understanding of when/how BFR can be implemented in the clinical world and in immediate post-op situations. This opportunity presents minimal risk factors, but BFR can be a valuable tool to create chemical and hormonal changes that are shown to delay atrophy.

Clinical Bottom Line:

BFR applied in a rehab setting can create an anabolic environment that can aid in the prevention of atrophy, and with the development of hypertrophy and increased strength following injury.

Learning Objectives:

  1. ID any Contraindications and risk factors of the patient prior to BFR application.
  2. Participants will be able to measure 100% LOP
  3. Participants will be able to identify correct BFR parameters based on the outcome that has been established as their goal.

You will have to create an account with Outlaw Movement Systems, LLC to access the material. Why? So we can carpet bomb your email with solicitations to sell you stuff. Actually, you have to create an account so we can keep a log of who completes the course and get CEU’s. Also, it allows you the get your CEU certificate. It’s 100% an automated process because we have full time jobs seeing patients can don’t have time for that level of administrative micromanaging.
