In the early stages of my ACL recovery, I began using the BFR to restrict blood flow to my injured leg during select exercises. The BFR helped me start to build muscle back at a faster rate and my leg/knee as a whole felt stronger when I used it. At the time, I was moving off of my crutches and out of my brace, and the BFR undoubtedly sped up this process. It helped me gain confidence in my progress and reduce the atrophy in my leg. I would most definitely recommend incorporating BFR training to future ACL recovery patients because I attribute a large part of my progression to my use of the BFR band.
