ABOUT THE EVENT:

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.

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.
