Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)

What is the Primal Reflex Release Technique™ (PRRT)?

PRRT (pronounced “pert”), is a manual-therapy approach for musculoskeletal pain relief. Proven effective in over 80% of patients, PRRT accomplishes in seconds what other therapies can only accomplish over time. PRRT is based on the premise that over-stimulation of the body’s primal reflexes creates pain and keeps a painful pattern occurring long after the triggering event has passed.

This drug-free and non-invasive treatment is beneficial for motor vehicle accidents, PTSD, and other trauma when the fight or flight response has been overstimulated. It is also beneficial for musculoskeletal pain, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, post surgeries, neck, and back pain. In addition, it will give the patient self-treatment tools long after therapy.

Back On Track Physical Therapy is proud to announce that our clinics are now offering BFR!

Blood flow restriction training involves decreasing venous blood flow to promote growth and prevent degeneration of injured muscle(s). This treatment is usually done with resistance exercise but there is also evidence that proves its effectiveness with compression alone. A meta-analysis on low-intensity blood flow restriction training found the following (Loenneke, et al, 2011):

  1. Participants who were not benefiting from typical resistance training experienced an improvement when combining low-intensity training with BFR.
  2. Improvements in strength and hypertrophy that are typically a result of heavy weightlifting can be achieved through exercising with BFR.

By avoiding intense weight-bearing activities, soft tissue damage is prevented. This treatment can help prevent atrophy and loss of strength after injuries from sports, aging, surgery, etc.
