HOW TO HEAL: Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy


Healing Time with BFST

The safest, most effective way to recover from most injuries is to use the body's natural healing process. However, simply letting your body heal on its own can take months, and leaves you vulnerable to re-injury. You can accelerate this process however by improving your blood flow, which will drasticly reduce the treatment time and risk of re-injury.

Many people perform physical activity to try and increase their circulation. However, this can be very dangerous as it opens you up to chronic re-injury. In order to recover, you need to be both at rest and increasing blood flow.

The best way to improve circulation while keeping you safe from re-injury is to use a Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™(BFST®) device. These devices are worn like wraps about the injured body part, and use EMR technology to increase circulation even at rest. BFST® wraps are able to reduce overall recovery time, enabling you to heal from your injury faster and more effeciently.

Healing Time with BFST

You are injured when the tissue in your body is damaged. Your body has the ability to heal itself, and if given time will fix the wound on its own. The body requires rest and cannot be stressed while it is in the process of recovery. However, most people do not have the time in their busy schedules to rest and let themselves heal for long periods of time.

The solution to this problem is to increase the flow of blood to the injured area. Blood carries essential nutrients and oxygen to tissue that gives it the energy to repair damage. By improving circulation, you can bring more mending power to the injured area, decreasing the total treatment time.

Normally to increase your blood flow you need to exercise or other physical activity regularly. For someone who has been recently injured, though, this is dangerous! Re-injury is a very real problem, and if you re-injure yourself you are sent back to where you started.

Using a BFST®, however, has no risk of re-injury compared to physical activity and exercises. BFST® can be used as a safe, effective means of improving circulation, with no effort required. You can stay completely at rest while using the wrap.

Each BFST® is enclosed in a soft Neoprene wrap, designed for a comfortable treatment experience. During treatments, the BFST® has a feeling of warmth; a feeling many enjoy while at the same time treating their injury in the best way possible. The shape of the wrap is far from generic; each wrap is crafted with a specific body part in mind for the best fit possible. The flexible design of BFST® wraps allows you to move the treatment area and not be inhibited by the wrap, so the things you want to do don't have to be put on hold during treatment.

While some people may feel a warm sensation using the wrap, BFST® is not a heating pad, but something much better. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ medical devices emit penetrating stimulating energy into your injured tissue. The energy reaches deep under the skin to stimulate bloodflow at the source instead of just the surface like hot pads do. BFST® medical devices provide the superior healing power of Energy Web® technology, without getting hot like heating pads do.

Tfcc partial tears

I have tfcc tears on both wrists (50%) and probably tendinitis too on left side. Had microsurgery on left side 3 months ago. I seem to be constantly re-injuring wrists as any physio seems to cause inflammation. I receive my order - cold cure and bfst wrap in a few days. Read everything on website.

Is it wrong to use cold cure all day long (20mins on and off). Not working at the moment (school teacher). I tend to do too much and make things worse (dealing with injuries for 6 months now with no improvement ). Once my swelling is down, I plan to do bfst all day too. (On and off ) Bad idea?

Any advice/ videos on how to apply  kb tape a tfcc wrist injuries?

Any specific tips to deal with TFCC tears that are not on website?

Excited to hopefully get on road to recovery once I receive my order.
Thanks for any replies

Re: Tfcc partial tears

Sorry to hear about your injury. No, there is nothing wrong with doing cold all day.  However, just be sure to give yourself breaks in between long enough to regulate your blood flow again.  Cold slows it down and constant cold can cause the area to stiffen up and reduced blood

Once you start the BFST, a 20 minute treatment stimulates the blood flow for a good 3-4 hours afterwards.  Doing one treatment every 4 hours is sufficient to get optimal blood flow throughout the day. If you want to do more, that is fine but if you ever feel discomfort, that is a sign you are over doing it.  More treatments do not necessarily mean quicker healing. You need to condition your wrist to get used to the promoted blood flow.  I would recommend starting slowly and building yourself up.

In terms of how to tape, I would recommend going to YouTube and search how to tape TFCC injuries as there are many ways to tape the area.  Do what works for you. 
As for other tips, just try to rest and really listen to your body.  Any time you are in more pain than normal, go back to the cold when needed. When feeling better, keep a routine of the BFST.  When doing PT, you may benefit from a BFST treatment before and be sure to put cold on after.

If you have any further questions, please let us know. We wish you all the best in your recovery.
