Rob Blumberg, MPT, of the Glen Carbon North facility, recently completed an online continuing education course for Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) therapy. 

This evidence-based course outlines the origins of blood flow restriction, identifies activated metabolic mechanisms, and addresses proper application for rehabilitation, performance enhancement, hypertrophy, and clinical use. Where appropriate, Rob will integrate BFR therapy for patients at the Glen Carbon North facility to stimulate strength gains and prevent muscle atrophy at lighter external loads. FBR therapy has been shown to enhance aerobic capacity.
