Owens Recovery Science - Blood Flow Restriction

Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (BFR) is a paradigm shifting intervention for the rehabilitation professional with over 160 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature. By applying a tourniquet briefly and intermittently to an exercising limb you can induce significant and substantial strength, hypertrophy and endurance changes while using a very light load. By attending the course clinicians will:

• Understand the history and scientific theory behind BFR

• Learn to manipulate protocols to create a local or systemic response

• Understand tourniquet use and safety

• Learn how to determine individual limb occlusion pressures

• Learn to apply BFR to rehabilitating patients

Physical Therapists will earn 8.5 CME credits toward renewing licensure.

Athletic Trainers will earn 8.5 EBP credits toward renewing licensure.
