  Title Utilization of Vascular Restriction Training in post-surgical knee rehabilitation: A case report and introduction to an under-reported training technique [case report]
Journal J Can Chiropr Assoc. 2011 Dec;55(4):280-287
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Introduction: The objective of this paper is to introduce a new and reportedly safe training technique, utilizing a vascular restriction stimulus during low intensity rehabilitative exercise and provide a case example within a post-surgical rehabilitation scenario. A brief review of the most commonly reported mechanisms of action behind the purported success of the training stimulus is included.

Methods: 19-year-old athlete presented for an accelerated post-operative knee rehabilitation program. She received a commonly utilized rehabilitation program that was supplemented with vascular restriction stimulus.

Results: The patient maintained muscle crosssectional area and had improved function at a 12-week follow-up.

Conclusion: Low intensity exercise supplemented with vascular restriction may prove to be an efficient and effective means of maintaining post-surgical muscle size and subjective knee function.

Introduction: Ce document a pour objet de présenter une nouvelle technique d’entraînement supposément sécuritaire, qui a recours à un stimulus de restriction vasculaire durant les exercices de réhabilitation à faible intensité, et un exemple de cas faisant partie d’un scénario de réhabilitation post-opératoire. Le document comprend une brève évaluation des mécanismes d’action communément jugés comme étant à l’origine du succès du stimulus d’entraînement.

Méthodes: Une athlète de 19 ans s’est présentée afin de suivre un programme de réhabilitation postopératoire accéléré pour son genou. On lui a prescrit un programme de réhabilitation communément utilisé, avec comme ajout un stimulus de restriction vasculaire.

Résultats: La patiente a maintenu la section transversale du muscle et la fonction du genou s’était améliorée après 12 semaines.

Conclusion: L’exercice à faible intensité, auquel s’ajoute une restriction vasculaire, pourrait s’avérer une méthode efficace et efficiente pour maintenir la taille du muscle suite à une opération, ainsi que la fonction du genou.
