Cold is extremely effective at relieving swelling, inflammation and pain. That's why you need to use cold immediately after your injury and any subsequent re-injury that causes a flare-up of pain and swelling. Bringing down the inflammation and swelling in the area of injury is important because it's the first step towards healing, and it's a step that cannot be skipped.
You need to do regular treatments with cold until there is no inflammation or swelling present in the injured area. Once the inflammation and swelling is gone, you can start healing your injured tissue with BFST® treatments. You should avoid BFST® treatments if you still have any inflammation or swelling because promoting blood flow to a swollen, inflamed soft tissue injury could potentially cause worsened symptoms and a longer recovery time.
Do regular ColdCure® treatments for at least 2 straight days before using the BFST® Wrap. This will help reduce not only the visible swelling you may see on the surface, but also the inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue. Avoid using the BFST® Wrap until your swelling and inflammation is gone. If you experience any pain or discomfort during BFST® treatments, this is a sign that you may have internal inflammation. In this case, discontinue BFST® treatments and resume ColdCure® treatments for several days.
Once you start doing regular BFST® treatments, you'll still need to go back to using your ColdCure® Wrap from time to time. Do a ColdCure® treatment after any physical activity to eliminiate inflammation in the deep tissue. You should also use ColdCure® to treat any pain flare-ups you experience during the healing process. When you do a ColdCure® treatment, wait 30-45 minutes before using BFST® again. After your 20 minute BFST® treatment, wait 4 hours before using the ColdCure® Wrap, or your treatments will cancel each other out.
ColdCure® gel packs are much more effective than ordinary ice packs. They fit better, last longer, stay colder, work faster, target pain better and are made of ultra-safe materials. Here's what makes the ColdCure® Wrap the absolute best therapy for your injury:
