Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (PBFR)

In physiotherapy, the clinical application of PBFR utilizes a Personalized Tourniquet System (PTS) for Blood Flow Restriction which is licensed as a Class II medical device in Canada.

This unique method of rehabilitation results in enhanced strength gains and muscle hypertrophy that can usually only be attributed to high intensity strength training. However with PBFR, these enhanced strengthening, athletic performance and injury repair benefits are achieved instead with low intensity exercise, thereby protecting the injured area from heavier loading as it heals.

Our team is at the forefront of PBFR training and therapies in Canada.

This safe and innovative form of rehabilitation benefits all conditions related to sports medicine and post-surgical orthopaedics (for example: bone fractures, tendon, muscle and ligament injuries) and is now offered at Go! Physiotherapy Sports + Wellness Centre.

Susan Deslippe is a clinical instructor of PBFR. Call us at 604 568 4628 or book an appointment online today.
