EFFICACY OF BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTED LOW-LOAD RESISTANCE TRAINING IN WOMEN WITH RISK FACTORS FOR SYMPTOMATIC KNEE OSTEOARTHRITIS

EFFICACY OF BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTED LOW-LOAD RESISTANCE TRAINING IN WOMEN WITH RISK FACTORS FOR SYMPTOMATIC KNEE OSTEOARTHRITIS

From the IAOM-US Education Committee
Scientific research is showing early strong evidence for gaining muscle strength and hypertrophy by restricting blood flow through cuffs placed on a limb while the subject performs low load resistance training. While this method allows for less load on a joint, this research is done under very controlled environments. The clinician is encouraged to consider health risks that might arise as the method becomes more common. Clinical reasoning would have the clinician looking out for possible adverse effects to include: hypertension and potential blood clots, side effects that might be related to ischemia reperfusion injury, or, for instance, neuropathy from cutaneous nerve compression.
