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.


Healing Time with BFST

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.

is return of pain ans swelling normal after treatment

I had swelling and most pain gone from my injury - about a 3 month old injury adn about 2 weeks mostly pain free.
I used the bfst treatment twice ( first time used) in one day and the next day the swelling and pain had returned to what it was about a month ago. I also felt tingling in the area of injury.  Is this normal? I stopped after that one day and have been icing and a week later still some swelling and pain.
For reference my injury is sesamoiditis. So it involves both the tendons and bones in ball of foot.

Re: is return of pain ans swelling normal after treatment

Tingling is normal but with sesamoiditis or (tendinitis) yes pain and swelling can re-occur. Generally you would stop the activity that started all this and stop the BFST for now and apply cold to the area off and on during the day for at least 3-4 days before trying the BFST again. You would also wear a more soft soled shoe and or cushion to the area for stress relief. If you must return to the activity that caused this do it gradually and slowly as inflammation and swelling can keep coming back. I would suggest longer periods of rest and elevation and cold therapy giving it more time to heal with less irritation. If it does not you may need to go back to your doctor and get a reassessment as to weather you may need to splint or brace it until it heals. I hope this helps and wish you all the best.
