West Building, 3rd Floor
Portsmouth, NH

Course Description & Objectives 

Improve your clinical toolbox with an evidence-based framework for blood flow restriction (BFR) training in the rehabilitation and strength settings. 

Blood flow restriction training is a safe and effective technique that allows your patients and clients to achieve the same physiological adaptations associated with high intensity strength training, without the joint stress! Use it as primary or secondary training, on deload weeks, as a recovery strategy, aerobic or resistance, land or water - the options are endless! 

Certification and contact hours will be provided at the end of the day following successful completion of practical skills assessment.


The course will cover:

  • A review of exercise physiology principles of strength training
  • Current guidelines for traditional strength training
  • The history and science behind blood flow restriction training
  • Safety and efficacy for the patient and clinician
  • Application of blood flow restriction tourniquets
  • Determining a patient’s limb occlusion pressure (LOP) using Doppler Ultrasound
  • Blood flow restriction training methods and proposed protocols for rehabilitation patients
