Cohen and Manago discuss how blood flow restriction works physiologically and evidence on using this intervention for individuals with a variety of neurologic diagnoses. They discuss how fatigue is often a limiting factor of exercise (for both strengthening and aerobic training) with patient with neurologic conditions, and that the addition of blood flow restriction may allow patients to be able to work at a higher intensity when fatigue is a barrier.
