For instance, blood flow restriction (BFR) and pelvic floor physical therapy are novel physical therapy services. BFR is a growing rehabilitation technique that involves using a tourniquet to restrict arterial inflow and obstruct venous outflow during resistance exercise or workouts. Initially, this approach was thought to promote muscular development, but as scientific knowledge about its physiological benefits and mechanism of action has grown, new clinical applications have emerged.
