Shoulder Injury Treatment
Here's How to Heal:
In order to get your injured shoulder fully healed as fast and effectively as possible, you need to treat the injury. Painkillers and anti-inflammatories DO NOT help you heal and can even make the healing process longer, and having surgery will mean long-term consequences and prevent full recovery. Instead, you need to alleviate the swelling and discomfort, then promote bloodflow to the area to heal the injury.
It's recommended you use ColdCure® and BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) wraps. Both are high quality medical devices that set the industry standard for injury treatment.
Here's what you need to do:
- Use ColdCure® to reduce the pain and reduce the swelling
- Use BFST® every day to improve blood flow and repair the damaged tissue
- Avoid putting strain on your shoulder
BFST® Repairs the Tissue
Using advanced technology, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) medical devices promote increased circulation, accelerating the healing process to the next level. Blood flow is crucial to fast tissue repair! Use BFST® to heal the tissue after your swelling.
ColdCure® Treats the Pain
ColdCure® cold packs relieve pain and reduce inflammation after your injury. These wraps can hold the cold longer than other cold wraps using RigiGel® technology which also distributes cold evenly over the injured area. Cold is much safer than ice, which is too cold and can burn skin.Click here for more information!
Certified Medical Devices
ColdCure® and BFST® Shoulder Wraps are FDA registered, and are certified safe medical treatments for shoulder injuries. You can rest easy knowing you are using only professional treatment to heal your injury.
The Ultimate Solution
Recovery can be easy if you use the right treatment. Simply follow these steps to get you and your injury on the road to fast recovery.
Step One: Reduce the Swelling
To reduce the inflammation or pain following a shoulder injury, use a ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap for the best post-injury treatment. Before you can start healing, you need to make sure the swelling is gone. ColdCure® wraps, unlike other gels, hold their shape and spread the cold out evenly over the damaged shoulder. Cold is better than using ice, which burns the skin and is uncomfortable to wear. ColdCure® wraps are stored in the fridge and keep that cold in longer than other wraps, so you can wear it without switching out gels as often.
Step Two: Heal the Tissue
In order to heal quickly, you need to take action to accelerate the healing process. One of the best ways to do this is to improve your circulation. Better blood flow means that your body can deliver oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to the injured shoulder, for the fastest treatment. A Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Shoulder Wrap offers the best solution, as it penetrates deep under the skin to the damaged tissue.
REMEMBER: If you are still experiencing swelling, you need to reduce the inflammation before using BFST® to heal the tissue. Using heat or BFST® before the swelling in your shoulder has gone down will only make your injury worse. Do not combine cold and hot treatments at the same time.
Comfortable High Quality Wraps
Both wraps uphold a high standard of comfort. Each is made of soft, high quality Neoprene and crafted specifically for shoulder injuries. These devices are shaped with your injury in mind. The ColdCure® gel itself is no ordinary design. It is made to surround the entire injured area, enveloping it with the pain relieving power of RigiGel®. The BFST's® patented Energy Web® is also designed to provide coverage across the whole injury, and improves circulation throughout the area.
These wraps work great for:
- Deltoid Injuries
- Muscle Tears
- Shoulder Tendonitis
- Other Shoulder injuries

Not sure if this BFST is working as it should
I just started using the BFST Shoulder Wrap a few days ago, and I hope it helps heal my torn tendon. It is certainly too early to judge the effectiveness of BFST.
But, I noticed something peculiar as I?m operating the wrap, which raises some questions and concerns.
There is a very, very, low volume tone being generated from the actual ?diathermic? device that behaves in a peculiar fashion which I describe a few sentences later. I just want to know if this is normal. I?m actually surprised that I found no information about this peculiar sound anywhere on the internet or this forum. I?m a musician and a sound engineer? so maybe that is the reason I would notice such a thing. Again? this is VERY low in volume, and it is really NOT bothersome at all. If anything, it just makes me curious.
Anyway, and more specifically, I believe I hear 4 distinct tones (possibly 5) that appear monophonically (never more than one note/tone at a time) in some kind of patterned sequence. My ears tell me they are very close to the following frequencies >110hz, 220hz, 440hz, and 880hz< which are essentially the musical note "A" split in octaves.
When I first power up the wrap, usually 2 notes tend to jump back and forth approx. every 3 to 5 seconds, between what I think are the 220hz and 440hz tones. After several minutes, I may hear the tone jump to either the highest 880hz, or the lowest 110hz frequency, and hold for perhaps several minutes. After that... the tones will engage in a variety of sequences until the end of the 20 minute session.
The pattern does seem different depending on the setting chosen.
Something concerns me? and makes me wonder if there is something wrong with the controller (the unit that has the of 3 setting buttons). When I have tried setting #3, there are at least a couple spans of time where I hear absolutely nothing for what seems to last a minute or more, compared to settings #1 or #2, in which I may notice a couple silent gaps that only last a few seconds. I should also point out, although there seems to be a subtle ?healing? feeling that I experience? I do not feel or sense anything DIFFERENT between the 3 settings in my shoulder, which is not what I would expect.
Perhaps... this is an unusual request to explain some questions which perhaps only your engineers/R&D department can answer. But, I would like to know that the controller is working properly between all 3 settings, and that these ?musical? tones are also a normal thing.
Oh BTW? I?m not crazy? my wife hears them as well! LOL
Re: Not sure if this BFST is working as it should
LOL, that's awesome Andy! You are not crazy, some of the units do 'sing' a bit when they operate. The shoulder one in particular get's noticed the most because it's so close to people's ears. I'd say most people don't even notice. Your highly tuned ear pays attention!
Yes, the device is much more sophisticated than just being on or off. The BFST actively modulates the treatment to get the best results. We don't really discuss the underlying operation too much because how works really isn't as important as what it does so we try to focus on the results rather than the method.
I'm an electrical engineer who participated in the design and it's interesting to hear your sound engineer interpretation of what we are trying to achieve. I like it! From what you've described your device is functioning perfectly. There are definitely modes where the sound is more or less noticeable and sometimes you can't hear it at all but it is still working. And you are also correct that the audible sounds will not be the same 'song' for the 3 different settings. Each setting is optimized for best results. As you can tell, a 20 minute treatment goes through a fairly complex routine. Over the years we've made many changes, constantly trying to improve the performance of the device. Today's 'song' is the result of many years of R&D and it's the best tune we know for your shoulder today.
In terms of the feeling you get on the 3 settings, more is not necessarily better. People often want to jump to level 3 when they get it thinking more is better. But if the higher setting causes too much blood flow at the surface of your skin then that pooling blood actually forms a barrier to the energy getting to the underlying tissue. We always recommend people use it on the lowest setting and only move up when they don't feel the warmth during treatment anymore and when after a 20 minute treatment their skin is not noticeably flushed. As your body's blood flow improves in the treatment area, these things will diminish and you can move up another level. Only people who use our products for a year or more and are relatively healthy are likely to use it on lvl 3. When you jump to level 3 you're pumping up the volume but your body is responding by putting cottonballs in your ears (sending blood to the surface).
Your senses are not deceiving you, Andy. It sounds like your Shoulder wrap is working properly and so is your body's response!
I hope you get better soon :)
