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.

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.

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.

Bottom of foot pain but mainly under the heels

Hi there, new to the forum, suffering from plantar fasciitis for some time.
What has been working well for you?

Re: Bottom of foot pain but mainly under the heels

Hi Bethesource,

Welcome to the forum! I'm a treatment advisor with King Brand, and can answer any questions you may have. When it comes to plantar fasciitis, we have a couple of products that are highly effective at reducing pain on the bottom of the foot and the heel.

The Foot ColdCure Wrap is effective at reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation, and is used as an "as needed" treatment. Here's a link to that product.

The Plantar BFST Wrap is an electrical device that plugs into the wall, and produces electromagnetic energy to subdermally heal soft tissue injuries such as plantar fasciitis. It's intended to be used 3-4 times daily and treatments last 20 minutes. Here's a link to that product as well.

Please note that when you click on the product, you will be able to see a treatment zone showing in yellow the effective treatment area.

I hope this helps!

Re: Bottom of foot pain but mainly under the heels

Hi TallyMarks

I've just started using the Plantar BFST Wraps a couple of weeks ago.
I initially started with one wrap, but since I have the issue with both feet, I've purchased 2nd BFST wrap so that I can do the 20 minute
treatment on both feet at the same time instead of having to switch.
Does it matter if I use BFST wraps with or without socks?

What about exercises or stretches for the foot? any recommendations??

Do you recommend using barefoot shoes like Xeroshoes or similar to use?

Also, I'll look further into the Foot ColdCure wrap.

Thank you.

Re: Bottom of foot pain but mainly under the heels

Hi Bethesource,

We typically recommend using the BFST on bare skin, with about two fingers space between the wrap and your skin.

As for exercises or stretches, I don't have any specific stretches to recommend, but I do advise paying close attention to any pain signals your body may send you during exercises or stretching. Certain exercises or stretches can actually aggravate your injury further, so if you do an activity that causes pain or discomfort, I suggest listening to the pain and doing it less or not doing it at all.

I am not familiar with Xeroshoes, but after seeing their website, their shoes sound like they promote a healthier, more natural way of walking, so if those work for you - awesome!

I can tell you've definitely done your research and that you're very motivated to heal. Consistent use of the BFST will help to heal soft tissue injuries, so you are on the right track! :)
