Pain often occurs between the wrist and the elbow. The pain resulting from a forearm injury is exerienced as tenderness, ache, tightness and often an inability to perform repetitive tasks. Most commonly, forearm pain results from repetitive sress such as tennis, golf and typing.
These symptoms can occur from:
- Pulled and/or strained muscles
- Muscle ruptures or small tears
- Acute injury may occur from a direct blow, fall, or any extreme twisting, bending, or jamming action.
- Tendonitis, such as tennis elbow or golfers elbow. Tennis elbow is a painful condition caused by inflammation or small tears of the forearm muscles and tendons on the outside or inside of the elbow. Tennis elbow is caused by overloading the forearm muscles through repetitive stress and poor technique.
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, another repetitive stress disorder, affecting the nerves and tendons of the wrist and forearm.
There are that can help treat your forearm pain and speed up the healing process so you can get back to a life without pain and risk of further injury. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) will treat scar tissue and promote blood flow to heal your tendons and muscles faster and more completely than any other methods available.
Freezie Wrap® Cold Compression Therapy
To decrease inflammation and relieve forearm pain doctor's recommend cold compression therapy. For acute tendinitis and other acute injuries, cold compression therapy within the first 72 hours following the injury and after any further irritation is important to limit the amount of damage done to your tissue. Cold compression therapy will relieve pain and swelling of both chronic and acute injuries and will reduce, or even eliminate, the need for NSAIDs.
The Leg/Arm Freezie Wrap® is the cold compression tool you need to treat your forearm. Leg/Arm Freezie Wrap® will treat your pain in an effective and convenient way.
Cold Compression Therapy works by interrupting and slowing nerve and cell function in the injured area and reducing swelling that can block blood vessels. This is important because once blood vessels are blocked or damaged, they can no longer carry oxygenated blood through your tendon or muscles and tissue cells begin to break-down. Without cold compression therapy, cellular break-down and tissue damage continues as the cells do not 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 get rid of your forearm pain faster and with less pain!
The deep cooling effect provided by the Freezie Wrap® slows cell metabolism thereby reducing cellular break-down and tissue damage. Furthermore, because the cold wraps gently numb the nerves, the wraps also reduce pain!
The Freezie Wrap® uses a supercharged cooling gel pack, that chills in the fridge, not in the freezer like ice or other freezer packs, giving you deep cold therapy without the risk of 'cold burns' or cryoburn. The medical-grade wrap keeps the cold directly off your skin preventing cryoburn while delivering cold right where you need it.

Inferno Wrap® Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™
After severe inflammation and swelling is reduced, begin treating your forearm with Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™ (BFST®). BFST® increases the amount of blood that flows naturally to your arm to nourish your soft tissue to speed healing.
Tendons naturally receives a limited blood supply limiting your body's natural ability to heal itself.
By treating your forearm with BFST® you can increase your body's blood supply to the biceps tendon and increase your body's natural healing power.
An Inferno Wrap® is the tool you need to treat your sore arm because it speeds healing and relaxes the surrounding muscles. With BFST®, tissues are safely and gently stimulated. Your body responds with a rapid increase in blood flow to the forearm, increasing the supply of oxygen and nutrients to injured tissue cells to promote healing. Our Leg/Arm Inferno Wrap® provides effective, non-invasive, non-addictive pain relief and healing with no side effects.
In addition, the improved blood flow whisks away dead cells and toxins that have built up from your injury. When you stop moving and using your arm due to pain, your muscles and other tissue can become weaker and dead cells and toxins in the area can cause further tissue deterioration - this can lead to atrophy(muscle weakness and/or deterioration). By clearing the area of toxins and increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients to your tendon and other tissue, the risk of atrophy is greatly reduced. Keeping your tissue as healthy as possible throughout the healing process will allow you to improve arm strength again once your pain has gone and your injury has healed.
