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.

Proper Shoulder Coverage

I am comparing the Shoulder BFST Wrap to the Side Shoulder BFST.  My upper arm muscle/tendon pain (probable tear) is my primary focus, but I have "frozen shoulder" (from favoring the arm due to the first issue).  Does the Shoulder BFST wrap cover as much of the upper arm as the Side Shoulder BFST? 
Thank you!

Re: Proper Shoulder Coverage

I guess that since the Right Shoulder BFST is out of stock, my decision is made for me.  Hopefully for the best. :)

Re: Proper Shoulder Coverage

Thanks SweetT for your interest in King Brand!

And yes, the Original BFST and ColdCure Right Small Shoulder Wraps are out of stock!  The  2 newer styles are lighter and more adjustable (and on sale!) so hopefully will work for you!

The BFST Side Shoulder Wrap is designed to heal soft tissue injuries in the side of the shoulder. This includes Rotator Cuff injuries, Upper Bicep Tendinitis, Deltoid injuries, and repetitive strain injuries.  The Side Shoulder Wrap comes with 3 Extension Straps that allow you to customize the fit of the wrap. This makes it easy to find the perfect fit for your unique body shape.  Also, the Side Shoulder Wrap can be used on either the right or the left shoulder, making it even more versatile!

The BFST Top Shoulder Wrap is designed to heal soft tissue injuries in the top of the shoulder. This includes Rotator Cuff injuries, Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus Tendinitis, Frozen Shoulder, and repetitive strain injuries.  The Top Shoulder Wrap also comes with a "family" of straps to allow for a custom fit.  It is however right or left shoulder specific.

If you are still trying to decide which Shoulder Wrap is right for you, pay attention to where the pain is. Is it closer to the "top" or "side"?  Still have questions? Please call us at 1-844-400-2525
