ST. LOUIS, Mo. — There's a revolution now underway when it comes to physical therapy. It goes against conventional thinking.
US Center of Sports Medicine Medical Director Dr. Richard Lehman talks about a new therapy that can dramatically reduce recovery time.

Blood-Flow Restriction Therapy:

  • Uses a tourniquet to limit blood flow to a limb.
  • Deprives muscle tissue of oxygen.
  • Stimulates atrophy and increases muscle cells.
  • Dramatically reduce recovery time.
