Dear MendMeShop,

I purchased this product recently for my plantar fasciitis. I've been using it about a week, and it has helped a lot with the pain when I first get out of my bed in the morning. I previously tried something else, that was more like a sock, that pulled the toes, and that only caused pain. This [night splint] is very comfortable to wear, and I love how much I'm able to adjust it! I would recommend this to anyone!

Dear MendMeShop,

The Knee Inferno Wrap is single-handily the best investment I have ever made for my knees, ever! Allow me to explain why, starting with a little knee history. In 1989 I tore my right ACL playing intramural basketball at a local community college. The college picked a cheap doctor & treated me as if I only had a torn meniscus. As a student, I did not have insurance of my own & I thought it was normal for my knee to keep popping out of socket after having surgery. About five years later, I’m now living in Houston Texas, I broke my knee again, really bad, couldn’t walk, severe damage. Had insurance this time and really great doctor (little did I know he was the Houston Oilers Team doctor) and he finds that my ACL had been torn all these years & I would be lucky to save it but probably have to have a cadaver ACL, sorry but that was out of the question, it freaked me out thinking about it. Doctor saved my knee, made it really tight & rehab was really difficult. Since 1994 I have not been able to bend my knee & put the back of my heal to my hip, always had about a 3-4 inch gap. After the first two days using the Inferno Wrap I was touching my heal to my butt, WOW! I have also had my left meniscus operated on & had the same issue, but not as bad, now I can completely sit down on my left knee with no pain, the right is still coming along but at least I can still sit down on top my feet. I’m 48 years old, I am extremely active for my age, I’m a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor & competitive fighter. I starting competing this summer & won my first tournament in June, not long after I got the Knee Inferno. I was able to take it with me, use it before my match & able to fight like never before. I took up long-boarding as well as a means of cardio training since I hate to run for the oblivious reasons, and it has been a great joy to do that. The Knee Inferno is a part of me now for the rest of my life, I use it every night (sometimes I forget) and the difference in the morning is incredible. I tell everyone in my gym that have knee problems, & as you can imaging we have knee issues in an MMA gym. Please let me know what I can do to do that. Thank you.

Bursitis Injury Facts Part 2:

Normally, bursa are flat and contain very little fluid. An injured bursa however, is swollen with fluid and not so flat anymore.


The most common bursitis injuries are:
Prepatellar Bursitis (housemaid's knee),
Superficial Infrapatellar Bursitis (clergyman's knee),
Trochanteric Bursitis (hip),
Olecranon Bursitis (student's elbow) and
Subacromial Bursitis (shoulder bursitis).


Deep Bursae separate bare areas of bone from overlapping muscles.
Superficial Bursae separate bare areas of bone from skin or tendons.


Deep Bursae develop in the womb.

Superficial Bursae develop within months to several years after birth.


Household names for various bursitis injuries include: Popeye's Elbow, Miner's Elbow, Weaver's Elbow, Housemaid's Knee, Hod-Carrier's Shoulders, Dustman's Shoulders, Student's Elbow, and Clergyman's Knee

 

Dear MendMeShop,

I'm a believer in your products. My wife had plantar fasciitis a few years ago. I did some research and came across your website. What impressed me the most and encouraged me to purchase was the response I read from your founder to a naysayer whom had never even tried your wraps. This guy was bashing your products when all others were praising them. Your owner invited him to Canada with airfare included to tour the headquarters! Anyway, I figured it was the real deal and so did he after that! My wife's brother is a chiropractor she literally healed her foot with the use of your inferno wrap and another treatment in a couple of weeks! I personally have Golfers elbow in both arms. I've been using the Inferno wrap for about 5 days so far. I haven't used the Freezie wrap yet as I really haven't much pain and no swelling. I definitely feel that it's working already. I'm confident that within a couple of weeks or more I'll be good as new! Thanks again for being part of such a wonderful company that stands behind its product! Sincerely, Jim Rossi

Dear MendMeShop,

It has been just over 2 months since I started using my knee Inferno Wrap for a MCL injury. I have used it as directed and have had great results. I am 80% healed with little pain as I write. I am planning to resume surfing this week after a 3 month layoff. I am 62. I definitely recommend Inferno Wrap as an alternative to surgery. Thanks again, Randy Best P.S. Yesterday I told someone about your great Inferno products who has a foot injury.

Dear MendMeShop,

My husband, who is in his 50's was feeling pain in his Achilles on one foot. He kept walking on it till it became inflamed and impossible to walk on. My husband sought out help from our Chiropractor, the treatments were very expensive and he could only get one a day. He couldn't walk on it at all. Just moving any part of his body caused him great pain. Going to see anyone would prove unworkable. I couldn't get him in the car as he could not even move his leg. I researched Achilles tendon injury on line. I found an article about the Inferno Wrap. The cost would be far less than trips to the Doctor. It was only a matter of days before he was able to get out of bed once we started the treatments as recommended. It was a week and he was off the crutches. He was able to get back to work after three weeks. He still uses the inferno boot when his Achilles feels sore. I am very grateful for your products and highly recommend them.

Bursitis Injury Facts Part 3:


On occasion, bacteria can invade a bursa and cause an infection. An infected bursa is known as septic bursitis and can be life-threatening if left untreated. So make sure you see a physician!


Septic bursitis is most common in knee joints and elbow joints as the bursae in these locations are close to the skin and most susceptible to bacterial invasion.


It is not uncommon for bursitis to be misdiagnosed as arthritis.


Bursitis is best avoided by staying in shape, taking frequent breaks from repetitive or laborious tasks and cushioning joints if on them for long periods (ie. kneepads for gardening).


A Bursa can swell to a surprisingly large size. In cases of heavy swelling, your physician may choose to drain fluid from the swollen bursa. If a lump is present in chronic bursitis cases, excision may be required.


Clergyman's Knee comes from a more upright posture when kneeling in comparison to Housemaid's Knee. Patients suffering from gout or syphilis can be at higher risk of contracting Clergyman's Knee.

What Causes Interdigital Bursitis?

Foot pain can be complicated to discover what is really causing you to limp or even lose time at work. The foot is a very complex system of bones, tendons, ligaments, bursa and sesamoid bones.

There are many causes of injury such as a sudden impact to the area of the foot such as stepping on the ball of the foot incorrectly. A fractured bone causing inflammation to the area what affects the bursa sac itself.

poor fitting shoes can cause pain in the ball of the foot

A injury to any of the soft tissue to the bursa tissue, can lead to a buildup of scar tissue thickening the lining of the bursa making it difficult to do it's job of lubricating the joint and allowing the tissues to glide smoothly.

Poor constructed or worn out footwear that does not have enough support for the tissue adds stress and weakens the tissue. The tissue tightens around the bursa causing irritation. Poor foot structure, the way you walk, the misalignment of bones or weakened tissue can cause the bursa damage and further weaken the tissue.

Sports related injury when running shoes that are too tight or sports that have repetitive stress to the ball of the foot such as rugby or runners. Typically they are more noticeable in the winter months as we wear tighter shoes/boots. The added compression of the footwear often times makes your condition worse.

The condition most often affects women who frequently wear pointed, high-heeled, close-toed or poorly designed for footwear. The pain increases with walking, weight-bearing movement, and tight-fitting shoes.


What are the Symptoms of Interdigital Bursitis?

Symptoms of foot interdigital bursitis can often have similar symptoms as Morton's neuroma.

  • You have sharp pain in the ball of your foot which is at the base of your toes, that causes you to limp.
  • You feel a burning pain that shoots into the affected toe or area when walking or running. Despite you changing your footwear or modifying your activities that causes stress.
  • You may notice a lump that may cause your to have a toe out of alignment with the other toes.
  • You will notice increased pain with any tight or compressed footwear.
  • You have numbness or tingling in the toe(s).
  • You may feel as if you are walking on the bones or pebble in your shoe or foot.

Do You Really have a Interdigital bursitis?

Our feet are some of the most complicated joints in our bodies with 26 bones, 33 joints and more than 100 tendons, muscles and ligaments (reference: 1). Pain in the ball of the foot can be caused by many injuries:

  • Stress Fracture - a break in the one of the bones in the toe or ball of the foot. Increased loads to the area causes the bones to weaken and micro fractures without rest the bones will completely fracture.
  • Plantar Plate - This condition usually causes sharp pain right under your second toe and your toe maybe out of alignment with your other toes. The ligament that holds toe bones in place has become injured from the toes are pushed upward motion or standing on your toes.
  • Morton's neuroma - This condition usually causes burning pain in the ball of the foot that may radiate into the toes. The pain generally intensifies with activity or wearing shoes. You may sometimes feel that you are "walking on a marble," and you have persistent pain in the ball of your foot. You may also have numbness in the toes. Neuroma is often the misdiagnosis of plantar plate tears the two conditions have similar symptoms.
  • Metatarsalgia - This condition can also cause pain in the ball of your foot, that area between your arch and the toes. Metatarsalgia is a common overuse injury, persistent stress can lead to chronic irritation and inflammation of the bone covering and surrounding tissues, such as ligaments and tendons.
  • pain in the ball of my foot what is it?
  • Sesamoiditis - The big toe has two very tiny bones embedded in tendon tissue in the ball of the foot. Any type of injury to the tendon tissue can cause irritation in and around the sesamoid bones. This condition can also cause pain in the ball of your foot, that big toe. Sesamoiditis is a common overuse injury, persistent stress can lead to chronic irritation.
  • Plantar Fasciitis - Pain associated with plantar fasciitis normally starts as a dull ache and then progresses to a sharp, knife-like pain or constant throbbing feeling that is worse when you put weight on your foot. The most tender areas tend to be in the center of your heel and along the inside and bottom of your foot towards your toes, where your heel and arch meet.
  • Turf toe - This can happen when the big toe joint is pushed beyond its' normal range (backwards or downwards). A 'pop' is felt at the moment the injury happens followed by sharp immediate pain. Symptoms include swelling in the foot, the entire big toe joint is affected and limits the motion in the toe.
  • Predislocation syndrome, crossover toe deformity and floating toe syndrome are terms related to a plantar plate tear or sprain.

 


What's Overcompensation Pain?


Long-term changes in your gait (the way you walk) - like shuffling or limping to reduce pain around your toes, can impact other areas of your body and possibly result in something called 'overcompensation pain'.

Everything in the human body is connected. A interdigital bursitis injury can lead to other injuries over time if not treated properly. You might start limping or shuffling because of your injured foot and place more weight on your opposite, healthy foot. Limping your way around for a long period of time may lead to pain in the heel of your foot, knee, hip or lower back on your injured side because you are mis-aligning your entire leg. The goal is to prevent secondary injuries while letting your toes heal. If you are changing the way you walk - try keeping your foot straight and off to the side to compensate for the injury.

Any injury left untreated can lead to overcompensation pain. Dealing with the injury quickly and healing completely should be your main focus. Plantar plate healing takes time... You can speed up your body's natural healing with very simple steps - like using cold compression, rest and blood flow stimulation therapy.


How Do I Diagnose a Interdigital Bursitis?


interdigital bursitis how to find out what it is?

It's important to find out what's wrong with your foot. Injuries are often misdiagnosed as they are similar to some other injuries that affect the foot. This is very true for those who are very active or enjoy running sports. When seeing your doctor they will discuss your medical history and examine your foot, heel and ankle for any deformities or inflammation (swelling, redness, heat, pain). They will also look at your flexibility, stability, and gait (the way you walk). A positive Mulder sign will often lead to a positive diagnosis and they will try and reproduce your symptoms. Occasionally an x-ray of your foot will help rule out Metatarsal (toe) Stress Fractures. An MRI can be used to provide a complete and accurate diagnosis of any injury to the soft tissue (ligaments) in your toes. In some cases the doctor will request blood tests to rule out diseases or infections.


How Do You Treat Interdigital Bursitis?
What You Can Do!

interdigital bursitis how to cure this foot pain

It is important to treat bursitis in the early stages to reduce the symptoms, minimize damage and maintain a normal walking pattern. Resting your foot and reducing any activities that add pressure on your bursa will help to reduce your pain and bursitis inflammation. By treating your interdigital bursitis in the early stages with ColdCure Wrap® cold compression therapy and BFST Wrap® Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy, you are more likely to prevent long-term damage and chronic conditions from setting in.

For non-infectious bursitis, the preliminary treatment starts with non-operative options such as cold compression therapy and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy. Surgery to remove the inflamed bursa is normally not required for bursitis, however if you fail to see improvement with the conservative treatments, your physician may recommend surgery to remove the bursa completely. Although this removes the problem of an inflamed bursa, you are left with less lubrication in your foot which can lead to a host of other conditions.

The most important factor in healing bursitis is resting your foot. During your recovery you will probably have to modify or avoid the activities that stress your bursa until your pain and inflammation settle.

Treatments should involve decreasing swelling, relieving pain and stress on the foot, treating scar tissue, and then restoring movement. If you are performing an activity that could cause further trauma to the bursa, it is recommended that you protect the area to prevent further irritation or damage.

Other Conservative Treatment Methods can be Risky

Cortisone for achilles bursitis has negative side-effects

In some cases, physicians may recommend drugs or medications like NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) to manage pain and inflammation.

"Medical evidence shows that cortisone shots can damage the surrounding tissue, fray the tendons, and even trigger a rupture. Most side effects are temporary, but skin weakening (atrophy) and lightening of the skin (depigmentation) can be permanent." (reference: American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)

 

Regardless of the condition affecting your foot, you will find that the conservative treatments your doctor give are the best choice for natural healing. Building strong healthy tissue and allows you to regain strength and full range of motion with your walking. Conservative treatments include:

  • Rest - This is important for the overall healing of your foot is resting. Do as much as possible, even this can be difficult when you have to carry on with daily activities, but resting is very important. During your recovery you will probably have to modify or avoid the activities that put stress on your foot until your pain and inflammation settles.
  • foot cold ice pack for pain relief
  • Avoid Activities that Caused Your Injury - While resting your injury it's also important to avoid all activities that may have caused your tissue damage (especially any repetitive movement). Continuing on with regular activities will not only make your injury worse.
  • Apply Effective Cold Compression
    Effective Cold Compression = Treatment with a ColdCure Wrap® Immediate cold (using a ColdCure Wrap®) will help you to manage pain while getting rid of the pain and inflammation. Reducing inflammation can also relieve some of the pressure that's being placed on your tissue(s) and stop your injury from getting worse.
  • Use Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy - After any inflammation and/or swelling has been reduced, you can use your own blood flow to maximize healing of damaged tissue and maintain healthy blood flow to your tissue. This also boost overall long-term healing of this injury.


The Plantar/Spur ColdCure Wrap® and Plantar/Spur BFST Wrap® are home treatment medical devices that stun many of our customers with how effective they really are! Even with chronic cases such as arthritis - these products cannot cure arthritis, but they sure can bring down the swelling (and pain) when it flares up. Maintaining elasticity in the joint is a major concern for arthritis sufferers, and the BFST Wrap® will help fight atrophy (shrinking of soft tissue due to lack of movement) and strains as it is known to increase elasticity of soft tissue during and for some time after treatments. You simply won't find another product on the market that has the comfort, ease of use, and effectiveness of a BFST Wrap®.

Success Stories

Your doctor has given have conservative treatments before even suggesting surgery. It is generally understood by doctors and surgeons, that surgery will introduce more scar tissue into the any already damaged tissue. This added scar tissue will be problematic, requiring more physical therapy and conservative treatment options post-surgery. If not dealt with properly, your foot bursitis injury could end up in worse condition than before the surgery! This is why surgery is only performed as a last resort.

Step 1 Foot support aids for interdigital bursitis

A cushioned athletic shoe with a wide toe-box may relieve pressure on you interdigital bursitis injury.

  • Wearing wide toe-box, cushioned athletic shoes gives your foot more room. Wearing a stiff-soled shoe like clogs can help to reduce the pressure being placed on your bursa tissue. For some people, a soft-soled shoe (like flip-flops) are even more comfortable and reduce the pain. If you've recently started wearing a new pair of shoes with a different type of arch support insole then this might even be the reason why you now have foot pain.
  • Orthotics should be custom-made to properly treat and relieve pain from your interdigital bursitis  injury.
  • Put Orthotics in Your Shoes - Use of any kind of orthotic or insert for added support in your shoe should always be done through the recommendation of your doctor. There are certain shapes of padded inserts / orthotics that are designed to relieve pressure on the bursa sac and keep foot aligned. You have to be careful with your choice of orthotics and may need to get some custom-made by your doctor because there's always a possibility that using the wrong orthotics will make your injury worse. Plantar metatarsal pad's may by be recommended by your doctor.


Step 2 - Reduce Pain & Swelling with a ColdCure Wrap®
Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling.

The 2nd step for conservative treatment of your interdigital bursitis when treating conservatively or even after surgery is to reduce swelling to "open up" the area for more blood flow. Anyone in the health-care business knows that your blood supplies the oxygen and much needed nutrients required for your body to heal naturally after surgery. This is why doctors and surgeons recommend cold compression therapy within the first 72 hours of any injury and following surgery.

Cold compression therapy is recommended to reduce pain, swelling and tissue damage. Many doctors, surgeons and physical therapists consider cold compression therapy to be the gold standard for treatment of inflammation and pain. On-going cold compression treatments can reduce, or even eliminate, the need for NSAIDs or other medications that can be harmful to your body.

Cold compression therapy is known and trusted by most medical professionals. This is why for years doctors, trainers and other medical professionals have recommended RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) to treat the pain and swelling of fresh injuries, chronic pain, after any re-injury, and especially after surgery.

Treat yourself with effective cold compression to reduce pain and swelling.

Although RICE can help to treat these symptoms, ice and inferior gel packs reach temperatures so low they can cause cryoburn, an ice burn on your skin. The problem is, up until now there hasn't been any other option to treat painful conditions and injuries with effective cold compression, so ice and blue gel packs (full of antifreeze and chemicals) have been the only choice up until now.

Fortunately you no longer have to settle for these ice cold methods that are uncomfortably cold against your skin, provide short term relief, cause ice burns, and numb your skin and underlying tissue beyond feeling so you don't even notice the ice burn until it's too late. You can also get rid of those cold packs that warm up soon after you pull them out of the freezer and gel that pools around your injury putting the short-term cold everywhere except for where you need it most - on your injury!

The ColdCure Wrap® is the cold compression tool you need for your post-surgical recovery to treat yourself in an effective and convenient way.

When used on any soft tissue injury, our ColdCure Wraps® provide:

  • The highest-level of cold compression to quickly decrease pain, swelling, inflammation and draw the heat out of your injury.
  • A tailored wrap that conforms perfectly around your foot.
  • Effective cold compression that's unlike any other cold compression wrap out there.
  • Cold temperatures that stay right over your foot injury for the entire length of your treatment.
  • A home-based solution with consistent (daily) cold treatments that reduces swelling fast, decreases tissue damage after injury or surgery, and opens up the vessels in and around your injury to receive the blood flow circulation needed to heal quickly and naturally.
  • Heavier, more substantial gel packs containing a special formulation of gel - called RigiGel®.

What's RigiGel®?

RigiGel® is our trademarked name for a unique gel formula that's made out of food-grade, non-toxic material which holds the cold for an extended period of time. This specially formulated gel also features non-migrating gel technology that makes our ColdCure Wrap® truly different from any other wrap available on the market.

RigiGel® is a patented formula that gives you:

RigiGel's unique gel formula offers non-migrating gel that stays put over your  injury.
  • More cooling power per pound of gel than standard cold compression wraps.
  • More gel than other wraps, meaning every time you put one on it will keep your injury cold for a longer period; pain relief is enhanced and swelling is better controlled.

Our special RigiGel® packs can be chilled in the fridge or freezer to tailor the amount of cold that you need for your foot injury. It doesn't matter how you cool it down, because our gel packs are chock full of gel that's designed to cool down into millions of tiny snowflakes. This method of cooling means our gel packs aren't icy-cold, just perfectly cold enough to give you the most effective cold compression available.

The cushioned gel will wrap around your foot injury and it won't budge for the entire treatment period. You'll no longer have to deal with annoying pooling around your foot injury or have to hold a hard block of ice on your foot!


Effective Cold Compression Therapy slows nerve and cell function - reducing the swelling that blocks blood vessels from doing their job.

 

tissue healing completely and get back to your life

This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through the tissue and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells don't get the oxygen they need to survive. By limiting the amount of damage done to your tissue, you also limit the amount of healing that needs to occur. This is a very important step to heal injuries faster and with less pain! This is why you need to treat your injury as soon as possible, when you notice pain / swelling / inflammation, directly after a re-injury or surgery. Applying a ColdCure Wrap® right away will stop the damage immediately and unblock your blood vessels to let your body's natural blood flow in to start healing the tissue.


The ColdCure Wrap® = Effective Cold Compression Therapy

 

It'll seem weird for you to read this, but there are a LOT of people out there that don't understand how fast cold compression with ColdCure Wrap® can get the swelling / inflammation in your injury under control! After you get rid of the swelling for good you can start actually dealing with your injury and the healing needed.


Use a Cold Compression ColdCure Wrap®:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling around your injured area to stop cellular damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your interdigital bursitis injury is making your injury feel tender, painful or you're having a flare-up of an old injury.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your tissue.
 



Step 3 - Improve Circulation, Soften Scar Tissue & Prevent Re-Injury with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy
Increase blood flow to speed up healing of your injury.

There are a lot of people that think their injury is gone after their swelling and inflammation are gone and their injury feels better. They also make the mistake of returning to regular activities too soon without proper time for healing. The truth is that healing takes time and after the swelling is gone your injury isn't even close to being fully healed.

After the inflammation in and around your tissue has been reduced, providing extra blood flow and strengthening the tissue in and around your injury is recommended. Believe it or not, the best time for you to focus on avoiding re-injury and strengthening the weakened tissue is when the swelling's gone and your tissue has started to heal. It's vital that you don't go back to activities too soon because you might bring on a major setback in your recovery...

  • Have you recently re-injured yourself by returning to your normal daily activities too quickly?
  • How many times in the past have you aggravated yourself just trying to perform basic tasks around your house?
  • Is your injury preventing you from work or activities you love to do?

If this sounds like you - You're not alone...


Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. The real challenge is how to promote blood flow to your injury site without causing further damage. This goal is even more complicated by the fact that you have to use your injury site for almost everything in everyday life.

 


What can you do to actually start healing yourself?

Increase blood flow to speed up healing.

The answer is simple. Your body can heal itself and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen. Your blood is how everything that's good inside of you is transported directly to your injured tissue. Your blood carries oxygen, nutrients, water and antibodies right to the source of your injury and pain. Bringing proper blood flow to your injured tissue is essential for healing.

Promoting blood flow around injured tissue to help the body heal itself is a concept that's been used for centuries. Oxygen and nutrients, carried in your own blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from your injury will be delayed... Sometimes for a very long period of time.

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to your tissue can be difficult, when an injury occurs. Traditional methods require you to move your sore/stiff injury site in order to promote blood flow. This same motion that promotes blood flow can also make your pain and injury much worse. Relying on movement alone to increase blood flow puts you in danger of re-injuring yourself.

So what do you do when you need to increase blood flow, but you can't move your without re-injuring your tissue?


This is where the BFST Wrap® and Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) come in!

 

Using Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®), will help with your recovery and heal your tissue more completely. BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your soft tissue to nourish your tissue, improving elasticity and speeding the healing process. This increased Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy to your damaged tissue is greatly needed to complete your healing and avoid re-injury once and for all.

The only way to get BFST® is through use of a BFST Wrap®.

When should you use hot or cold for injuries?

The BFST Wrap® is the only treatment method that improves blood flow and circulation on a deep tissue level. Other methods of warming / heating tissue (hot water bottles, hot baths, etc) will only ever increase blood flow on a surface / skin level. These methods need a LOT of time to even reach your damaged tendon on a deep tissue level. And even if you were to use them this long your skin would heat up to an uncomfortable level and it may even burn you.

The best source of heat treatment is from a product where you don't even feel that much heat. When you don't feel the heat, it means the therapy is working in your deep soft tissue which is really where you need it. It's kind of like how your heart works in your body. You can't "feel" your heart pumping blood all around your body to your arms and legs. You can't even hear your own heartbeat without listening very closely. This is exactly how deep tissue BFST® works too!

You're not supposed to "feel" a lot of heat because the heat isn't treating your skin, it's treating your tissue, increasing the blood flow right where your injury is!

  • When treating any soft tissue injury, an effective therapy will increase blood flow to the injury while your injury site is immobile.
  • This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself.
  • The BFST Wrap® is the most highly effective blood flow stimulation device that you'll find on the market that is approved by the FDA for use in the home or hospital.

Regular treatments with a BFST Wrap® can reduce pain and stiffness from scar tissue and increase overall flexibility in your tissue. Increased blood flow will whisk away damaged tissue, toxins, and any bacteria in or around your injured tissue to promote more effective healing. Getting rid of toxins will allow all of the positive healing processes to start in your injury. Increasing blood flow will also increase the amount of oxygen that's being sent to your injured tissue AND boost your tissue's ability to absorb oxygen. (reference: 1)


How Does the BFST Wrap® Promote BFST®?

Electromagnetic energy increases blood flow on a deep tissue level.

Every BFST Wrap® contains a patented Energy Web® that's flexible and shaped to conform around your injury site. The Energy Web® provides a uniform wave of healing electromagnetic energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels deep inside your soft tissue to stimulate blood flow on the deep tissue level where it's needed to heal your injury. It's the electromagnetic energy provided provided by our BFST Wraps® that's crucial to the healing process.

Electromagnetic energy is the only way to get your blood flow moving on a deep tissue level for these reasons:

  • Electromagnetic energy waves are not heat waves.

  • When emitted from the BFST Wrap®, electromagnetic energy waves penetrate right through your skin and fat layers until they get to your damaged tissue.
  • Once these energy waves reach your injured tissue(s), they're absorbed and quickly converted into heat energy right at the location of your injury.
  • The idea of electromagnetic energy waves is slowly catching on in North American, but the truth is, it's a technology that's been used for decades.
Electromagnetic energy has been studied by researchers for decades.

Many people just don't know that over the past 30 years, researchers in Japan and China have completed extensive studies on the use of electromagnetic energy for healing and their findings have been impressive. Success has been reported in studies from countries like Sweden and Germany. Research is continuing and soon, much of North American will know what the Far East and Europe has known for a long time...

Electromagnetic energy provides a wide range of health benefits for many other soft tissue injuries.

Regular treatment with the electromagnetic energy in our BFST Wraps® will ensure:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Your injured tissue will heal at an accelerated rate with reduced potential for re-injury.
  • Your knee will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue in your joint and around your meniscus. (Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)


Electromagnetic Energy = Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing

 

Our BFST Wraps® are uniquely patented designs that are better than other alternatives out there for more than just the electromagnetic energy they provide! Our wraps are made from medical-grade material - this should be as important to you as it is to us. Other products that are sold in stores are considered "consumer goods" meaning the material only needs to be as good as a sweater that you wear. Clothing articles like this don't need to meet high standards of production or materials and may include materials that irritate your skin.

Since our wraps are medical-grade products registered with the FDA, they are of a higher quality and need to meet way more standards for manufacturing (ISO 10993 - biocompatibility testing). This makes our wraps the safest product to increase blood flow circulation.

Our manufacturer has spent years perfecting the wrap design to make sure you get the treatment you deserve!


Use A BFST® BFST Wrap®:

  • After swelling and inflammation have been reduced with cold compression.
  • Before exercise or workouts to warm up your injury site to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery, during rehabilitation, to warm up before physical therapy exercising or stretching.
  • Anytime you feel your tissue has stiffened up, is tight and your mobility is reduced causing you more pain.
  • Anytime you have sore or aching tissue in and around your injury site.
  • Any other situation where you need to increase blood flow to your tissue to relax your soft tissue, relieve pain, prevent re-injury and enhance flexibility of your tissue.
