Blood flow restriction is a technique used to strengthen a muscle with less load. During treatment, the physical therapist restricts blood flow to a limb, combined with low-load lifting to elicit metabolic stress. This results in increased strength and muscle growth. This treatment is most often used in physical therapy for post-operative patients who have weight bearing or lifting restrictions due to their protocol, in order to accelerate the post-operative strengthening process.

I just finished my therapy at Phoenix Therapy. I can’t say enough about Dan and Karen they helped me so much with respect and just what I needed to get back on my feet after knee surgery. I would recommend them for any type of therapy. Thanks Dan & Karen for your help for me.
