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.

Achilles BFST - Insertional Achilles Tendonopathy

I've been suffering from insertional Achilles tendonitis/tendonosis and have been having a very tough time resolving the symptoms.  I have a couple of questions:

1) I notice that the Achilles BFST does not cover the heel where the Achilles attaches.  Does this have an impact on how effective the treatment is?  My pain is right at the insertion point on the heel bone.

2) Are there any stats on effectiveness of this device for treatment?

3) Do any users have experiences to share on using this to treat their Achilles tendon issues?


Re: Achilles BFST - Insertional Achilles Tendonopathy

Hi MPHCO, and thank you for your enquiry.

I'm sorry to hear of the pain you have been experiencing. Hopefully I can answer your questions and help with your treatment.

1.) Unfortunately we do not have a product that covers the insertion point completely. The BFST Achilles Wrap however, is still recommended for the treatment of this ailment. The Electro-magnetic energy that the wrap emits, sends a signal to draw blood flow into the entire surrounding area. As the cover of this wrap starts at the insertion point right above the heel, you will still receive full benefit/blood flow from this wrap. You still want to target the large part of your Achilles to get the increased circulation to flow entirely through.

Some customers are completely comfortable with the coverage the ColdCure Achilles Wrap gives for the insertion point, but the ones that aren't, we recommend simply flipping the gel pack upside down (outside of the mesh pocket, within the wrap), for full coverage behind and up the heel.

2 & 3.) Our stats lie entirely with customer feedback, which has been amazing. I have included our Ankle/Achilles Testimonial page below.

I wish you all the very best. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any further questions.

Kind regards,
