Blood Flow Restriction: Optimize Rehab Outcomes
Featuring Nicholas Rolnick, DPT, CSCS
This workshop is for Rehab Professionals only who want to have a deeper understanding of the power and science behind BFR and its application to the injured community. This 1-day (8 hour) workshop provides a BFR Training Rehab Specialist Certification upon successful completion and passing of a written examination at the end of the workshop.
Blood flow restriction is rapidly growing in both rehab and performance settings due to the unique effects of exercise under vascular restriction. This course is the 8 hour in-person experience for participants who have already taken the online 4.5 hour Introduction to BFR Training course on www.bfrtraining.com. In this course, we will expand upon the concepts previously discussed through in-person laboratory experiences with various BFR technologies, collaboratively applying gained knowledge through clinical case studies and exploring how BFR training impacts athletic performance. Upon leaving, participants will be able to safely reason and successfully apply BFR in a variety of patient populations with relevant supportive evidence for its use.
Who should attend? Physical Therapist, Physical Therapist Assistants, Athletic Trainers.
Upon successful completion of this course, the practitioner will:
Discuss importance of muscle protein synthesis, recruitment of type 2 muscle fibers within the injured, post-operative, elderly and athletic populations
Evaluate the benefits of BFR training with respect to the early post-operative and injury periods using passive and neuromuscular stimulation approaches
Discuss BFR aerobic exercise in clinical practice within injured, post-operative, elderly and athletic populations and how it may enhance physiological processes thought to enhance aerobic capacity and/or performance
Discuss BFR resistance exercise in clinical practice within injured, post-operative, elderly and athletic populations and how it may enhance physiological processes thought to enhance muscle mass, strength and/or performance
Demonstrate assessment of LOP using manual and automatic cuff technologies
Discuss differences between different cuff technologies and potentialbenefits/limitations to their use
Discuss case studies and design/demonstrate a BFR treatment plan of care
