Improve Your Clinical Toolbox with Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) – Webinar Recording

[For Providers]

****This webinar is intended for Healthcare Professionals Only.

Improve your clinical toolbox with an evidence-based framework for blood flow restriction (BFR) training in the rehabilitation setting. Blood flow restriction training is a safe and effective technique that allows your patients and clients to achieve the same physiological adaptations associated with high intensity strength training, without the joint or tissue stress!

The webinar will cover:

  • A brief review of exercise physiology principles of strength training.
  • Safety and efficacy of BFR or the patient and clinician.
  • Application of blood flow restriction tourniquets.
  • Discussion on determining a patient’s limb occlusion pressure (LOP) using Doppler Ultrasound.
  • Blood flow restriction training methods and proposed protocol for post-op ACL patient.

About the Presenter:

Dr. Kyle Coffey is a physical therapist, exercise physiologist, faculty member, and clinical educator who is passionate about increasing knowledge of movement, health, and wellness with patients and clinicians. Driven by research and experience, his ultimate goal is to get every person he works with to become resilient in their life or sport.
In addition to owning his own clinic and educational company, Motus Physical Therapy and Performance, Dr. Coffey is a full-time Lecturer and Exercise Physiology Program Director at his alma mater, the University of Massachusetts Lowell. His research interests include the role of physical activity in memory, cognition, and academic achievement particularly in the elementary through high school population.

What began as self-application of blood flow restriction (BFR) training to stay healthy while recovering from an upper extremity injury, turned into a love for the research and a desire to safely and effectively apply in both the rehab and training populations. Time is our greatest resource, in life and in the clinic – an adjunct to traditional strength training was needed to help people train and rehab smarter, not harder. Thus Modern Strength Training was born!
Outside work, Kyle likes to spend time with his wife, son, and dog. He enjoys cycling, running, reading, gardening, and landscaping. He has a good sense of humor and challenges you to give him a good one-liner.
