This 2-hour introductory course is designed to give an overview of the research and basis for Blood Flow Restriction Training. This is a home-study course and therefore does not teach clinicians how to perform Blood Flow Restriction methods but instead review the relevant physiology and most current evidence on the theories behind this modality as well as the key fundamentals. Clinicians should always perform treatments within their clinical scope. At the end of the course, participants will take a 15-question quiz to ensure comprehension and must pass with a score of 75% or higher.
