Neck Injury Treatment
Here's How to Heal:
In order to get your tendonitis or injured tendon 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
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.Click here for more information!
ColdCure® Treats the Pain

These wraps can hold the cold longer than other cold wraps using RigiGel® technology which also distributes cold evenly over the injured area.

Certified Medical Devices
ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps are FDA registered, and are certified safe medical treatments for neck 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 neck injury, use a ColdCure® 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 entire neck area. 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 neck, for the fastest treatment. A Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Wrap offer 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 neck 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 neck 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:
- Tendon tears or strains

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.
Re: is return of pain ans swelling normal after treatment
This is a very good example that even when the pain and swelling are gone, the underlying issue is usually far from healed.
It appears that the stimulation provided by the BFST was more than the injury was ready for. It is not uncommon for people to make the mistake thinking that "if some is good, more is better". This thought process causes people to start their treatments on level 3 from day 1. It is very important to start your BFST treatments at level 1 and only move to the next level after a period of several treatments where the warmth of the treatment becomes much less noticeable. Very few people ever move past level 2 even after a year of use. The instructions indicate that even on level 1, if the area gets quite warm then to stop and just do shortened (5 - 10 minute) treatments for the first little while. Over treatment can result in aggravated symptoms of pain and swelling.
There is nothing wrong with just doing a 5 minute treatment on level 1 the first time you use a BFST. If your body is good with it, you can increase the treatment time and power level gradually over subsequent treatments. When you are well on your way to being healed, you will be able to give yourself 20 minute treatments at level 2 without issue. Even at that point you may not be fully healed, but you will definitely be well on the road.
If your symptoms get worse following BFST, this does mean you need to let up on treatments though. You have to give your body time to heal as well. This particular user had an injury that only stopped hurting after 3 months. That generally indicates full healing will take over 1 year! In the case of severe injury this can be the case. BFST is designed to help and accelerate the healing process. With serious injury, even with BFST, the process can still take some time. Ultimately though, the most serious injuries can still heal with the proper care.
Respect the pain - it is there to guide you. Be vigilant. Be patient. You can get better.
