Ever since interview 1 and 2 with Johnny Owens on Therapy Insiders Podcast, I've been curious about Blood Flow Restriction training. I was fortunate enough to have another expert, Dr. Mario Novo, of The Lifter's Clinic attend a recent Modern Manual Therapy Seminar. He uses The Occlusion Cuff, a product developed by another PT. So I got to feel just how tough it is, and how it makes a light resistance feel like a lot more work - with the same benefits according to the research.
BFR with Dr. Novo
Interested in more? The Occlusion Cuff is now on sale at EDGE Mobility System, I will be hosting a webinar with Dr. Novo sometime in August 2016 - sign up coming soon! You can learn all about the applications to rehab, physical therapy, general fitness, plus the fascinating research behind the physiology of it all. Dr. Novo will also be sharing exclusive videos on Modern Manual Therapy Premium on his own channel soon!
Interested in live cases where I apply this approach and integrate it with pain science, manual therapy, repeated motions, IASTM, with emphasis on patient education? Check out Modern Manual Therapy!
