If you have never heard about BFR therapy and you work in a private clinic or with patients after injuries, fractures, joint replacements, with elderly but relatively healthy patients or even athletes you should definitely check this out! Its a way of gaining your muscle strength faster!
Thank you for this course! I haven't ever heard or think about this before. A very interesting and creative approach.
This course benefited me and made me confident when working with my players who has an ACL injury

This course contains lots of detailed, practical advice. It in particular stresses the importance of adhering to principles rather than rigid time frames when designing an ACL rehab program. The course tutor, Luke O'Brien, is an excellent communicator!
I enjoyed this course because it helped to shed more light on ACL injury rehabilitation
