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.

metatarsal pain/ pain on side of foot

I have a question in regards to treatment option for the pain that I am experiencing in my left foot since the middle of August. Initially I was treating it at home but then when the pain was not going away I went to see a podiatrist . He recommended laser ( theralaze and EMS - Gpulse ) , volarin foot cream and ice. I also now  have a pair of orthotic since I have a high arch . However even after these treatments I am still in pain when I walk. I am not certain what type of treatment options I should take for the pain that I am experiencing. For instance when should I put ice on my foot or heat.  I would like to know which of your products do you recommend for my condition and when should I use them.

Re: metatarsal pain/ pain on side of foot

Thank you for your interest in King Brand.  The Coldcure is recommended to help treat the pain and inflammation.  The less inflammation you have the better your blood will flow through. 

We recommend the use of cold multiple times a day for a few days to ensure any lingering inflammation is taken care of.  You would then always go back to the cold when needed.

After the first few days and when you notice a decrease in your pain level, we recommend the use of the BFST wrap.  You will use this 3-5 times a day 20 minutes at a time.  This will optimize your circulation to help heal and repair the damaged tissues.

We also sell support tape which will help support your foot while you are healing and help prevent against over straining. 

Generally when treating, Coldcure when you are in pain and then routinely using the BFST to keep good circulation.  We do not recommend the use of heat as it doesn't really do much for the overall healing process.

I hope this information helps.  I have included a few useful links to our website below.
