Restriction with a Purpose

What is Blood Flow Restriction?

  • BFR shows amazing potential in the sports medicine world by allowing a patient to improve hypertrophy (muscle growth) and strength without stressing or overloading their joints.

  • BFR has been shown to require a substantially shorter period of physical activity to achieve the same muscle growth results (3-6 weeks vs 8-12 weeks)

  • As a patient, this will allow you to rehabilitate more aggressively and decrease muscle atrophy, even when you have load/weight bearing restrictions secondary to your surgical healing process.

At Synergy Sports and Rehab, we have partnered with B3 bands and have seen great results. The B3 Bands use Blood Flow Restriction training, or BFR. When you wear the bands and do light exercise, you create a natural and safe manipulation of the body’s circulatory system.

While doing light exercise with the B3 Bands on your arms or legs, the blood exiting out of your venous system back to the heart is slowed down. This reduction in blood flow while doing exercises causes the muscle to fatigue quicker.

Muscles Fatigue Deeper than most People have ever experienced

  • The muscles have less Oxygen to work with

  • The muscles fatigue faster and you will feel the 'Burn' fast

  • Then while doing light exercise your fatigue levels go deeper (with less O2) than most people have ever experienced

  • You are doing Less Work, you have Less Pain in your body, and you Recover Faster

  • A signal is sent to your brain which results in a surging Growth Hormone Release shortly after the BFR exercise

  • With more Growth Hormone, you Respond Faster and with Better Results

  • Plus Growth Hormone has tremendous Healing and Anti-Aging Benefits on the Body!
