Blood Flow Restriction is rapidly becoming one of the most effective healing tools in the world and the Fischer Institute team has already seen amazing results from using this treatment on our patients.
A recent article featured on azcentral.com focuses solely on this new technology and the results our team has seen from it. An excerpt from the article:
“The system reduces oxygen to an injured area and safely regulates the exact amount of pressure to apply,” said Brett Fischer, a licensed physical therapist and founder and owner of the Phoenix-based Fischer Institute of Physical Therapy. “As a result, we are able to maximize muscle strength using extremely low resistance which is significantly beneficial for healing.”
When Tom Ferguson partially tore his bicep during a training exercise at work last year, the 42-year-old first responder began physical therapy to regain flexibility, strength, and function in his arm just several weeks after recovering from surgery. He was introduced to BFR training at the Fischer Institute of Physical Therapy.
“It felt like I was lifting a very heavy amount of weight during an arm curling exercise when I was actually only lifting a 2-pound or 3-pound weight,” Ferguson said. “I was able to perform a very strenuous exercise without adding stress to my ligaments.”
