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.

First few days of BFST treatment

I purchased the achilles wrap and have used it three times a day for two days now. I notice the slight 'heat' sensation seems to last the whole way through the 20 minute session (but not unpleasent) and might actualy be having a little more pain. Is this most likely due to internal swelling? (I just had two cortisone shots over two weeks and was icing it each day, so I had hoped to take care of it)

Is it worth the discomfort to promote healing or should I just really return to cold for a while and come back and try again?

Re: First few days of BFST treatment

If you are experiencing more pain during or after the BFST treatment, it is due to internal inflammation.  You should stick to cold therapy for a while before promoting blood flow through the Achilles.  I recommend 4-5 days of continuous cold treatment before starting the BFST again.  Also, after any physical activity; walking, up and down stairs, etc., you should be applying cold afterwards to keep the inflammation down.  When you do return to the BFST, you should also continue the cold treatment throughout the day as well.  You want to keep the inflammation down to a minimum.  The BFST should not cause discomfort so by treating with both cold and BFST you are keeping the internal inflammation down which will allow the BFST to improve the circulation in the Achilles, promoting faster natural healing.

Thanks Tiffany, I'll give that a shot. :)
