Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

Injury, age or poor physical condition can keep you from gaining muscle and strength. A new technology in rehabilitation offered at Baylor Scott & White Health can help you achieve your desired results using only a portion of resistance usually required.

Blood flow restriction (BFR) rehabilitation allows for exercise with significantly lighter weight while still creating muscle growth and strength response. This involves brief constriction of blood flow while using a tourniquet during exercise.

For more information on BFR rehabilitation, contact your therapist.

Fusionetics

Nearly half of all sports injuries to middle and high school students are due to overuse/ non-contact incidents. Many of these injuries are preventable if risk factors are identified and proper training programs are implemented.

The most common risk factors for non-contact injuries are:

  • Previous injury
  • Poor movement efficiency and control
  • Asymmetries in flexibility, movement and strength between right and left sides of body

Fusionetics utilizes an efficient three-step process to measure and monitor movement, performance and recovery status – which are directly linked to injury risk and on-field performance potential.

Every participant receives an individualized 0-100 score based on the quality and control of their body’s movement. A personalized program is then created based on their individual movement efficiency test results.

For more information on Fusionetics, contact your therapist .
