Blood Flow Restriction Therapy

HMG Rehabilitation now offers blood flow restriction therapy, the brief and intermittent restriction of blood flow using a tourniquet while exercising. The goal of blood flow restriction therapy is to reduce just enough blood flow to create positive changes in the injured area.  This highly individualized treatment can increase growth hormone and other muscle growth factors and expedite the healing process.
