Blood Flow Restriction Training
McCracken Chiropractic & Wellness Center is proud to offer BFR as a way to rehabilitate and build strength. "Blood flow restriction training (or "occlusion training") is exercise where resistance exercise or aerobic exercise is performed while an occlusion cuff is applied to proximal aspect of the muscle. Limb blood flow is restricted via the cuff throughout the contraction cycle and rest period. This results in partial restriction of arterial inflow to the muscles, but, most significantly restricts venous outflow from the muscle. Given the lighter load nature and strengthening capacity of BFR training, it can provide an effective clinical rehabilitation stimulus without the high levels of joint stress and cardiovascular risk associated with heavy-load training."

Dr. McCracken creates specific rehab-workouts for you to complete during your scheduled time. You'll be given instruction, guidance on form and monitored throughout the workout to ensure you are executing properly and effectively.
