Blood Flow Restriction Training
Blood Flow Restricted (BFR) is the brief and intermittent occlusion of arterial and venous (veins) blood flow using a tourniquet while exercising. Using this technique you can exercise with significantly lighter weight while still creating a hypertrophy (growth) and strength response. It can also help reduce pain while training.
Praxis Physical Therapy is certified in Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training. The cuffs we use are H+ Cuffs and Smart Cuffs.

I'm Mark Jamantoc, owner and physical therapist at Praxis PT Bellingham, and I have been in Orthopaedic physical therapy practice since 2002. I have had my own share of orthopedic injuries and have worked with some of the most amazing clinicians out there. My own healing experience allows me to listen and better understand people and this helps create a healing plan that makes sense for the patient. Allow me to assist in this process.
