Flask-SQLAlchemy is an extension for Flask that adds support for SQLAlchemy to your application. It simplifies using SQLAlchemy with Flask by setting up common objects and patterns for using those objects, such as a session tied to each web request, models, and engines.

Flask-SQLAlchemy does not change how SQLAlchemy works or is used. See the SQLAlchemy documentation to learn how to work with the ORM in depth. The documentation here will only cover setting up the extension, not how to use SQLAlchemy.
