Advantage PT: 5 Simple Ways To Beat Knee Pain

FREE WORKSHOP ATTENTIONKNEE PAINSUFFERERS! MARCH 12TH & 13TH • 6:30PM The Knee Pain Workshop will be held March 12th at our Sammamish clinic and March 13th at our Redmond clinic at 6:30pm. If you’re confused about what to do and looking for answers, here’s some of what you’ll learn:

What is Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)? BFR is the use of a pressurized cuff placed on a limb during low to moderate level resistance training. A growing body of research supports the use of BFR in combination with low load resistance training to increase muscle size and strength in skeletal muscles similar to performing high load resistance training alone. How does BFR work? BFR works by reducing the amount of available blood to an exercising muscle thus increasing the amount of metabolites in that muscle. This increase in metabolites can stimulate cell signaling pathways that cause growth in muscle size and strength in the exercised limb. What would it look like in the clinic? An inflatable cuff will be placed on the limb being exercised, pumped up to a certain pressure based on the individual, and low load exercises will be done. Most commonly, a high amount of repetitions; 15-30; will be done at low levels. Who would benefit from BFR? There is evidence that supports the use of BFR for populations with decreased strength and/or joint stability. BFR canalsobeusedalone inperiodsof immobilization—suchaspost-surgery or being in a cast, boot, or brace—and can help prevent muscle loss and strength decline. For the healthy and athletic populations, BFR is used to stimulate muscular mass and strength growth at a lower training load without the mechanical stress of high load training. What are the effects from BFR? Increased muscular strength and endurance without stressing the joint! Service Spotlight: Blood Flow Restriction Treatment For Post-Op Knee

Patient Review

“I came to Charles because I had knee pain that was severe enough to limit my ability to play tennis competitively. Since my treatment started, I have gotten enough flexibility to improve my movement on the court. I am also able to walk up and down stairs normally and without pain. I also regained the ability to cross my legs and tie my shoes while sitting down.” - Scott R.
