Abstract

I critically appraised an article examining an 8-week rehabilitation intervention comparing the use of Blood Flow Restriction resistance training and heavy-load resistance training in a group of individuals that underwent ACL reconstructive surgery. The appraisal was performed to determine the overall quality of the study, clinical significance of the data collected, and provide evidence to address the clinical question presented. Each section of the article was assessed, with strengths and weaknesses discussed for each. The study utilized effective outcome measures, high quality sources, and provided support for the clinical use of Blood Flow Restriction.
