One Super Important Fact
Baker's Cysts usually develop as the result of an underlying knee injury or condition. Addressing the Baker's Cyst alone won't get rid of it. Aspiration may bring down your Baker's Cyst, but this won't prevent it from coming back. Many common treatments for Baker's Cysts, such as cortisone injections, only address the symptoms. If you want to get rid of your Baker's Cyst for good, you need to heal your underlying knee injury or condition. With King Brand® products you can treat the symptoms and the cause of your Baker's Cyst. Relieve the pain and swelling of your Baker's Cyst with a ColdCure® Leg wrap. Heal the underlying problem with a BFST® Knee wrap.
Heal Your Baker's Cyst
To heal a Baker's Cyst, you need to address the root problem that caused the cyst to develop. For example, if you have a meniscus tear that caused your Baker's Cyst to develop, you must treat and heal the tear in order to get rid of the Baker's Cyst. There is a decreased chance of the cyst returning if you eliminate the cause.
Use a ColdCure® Leg wrap to reduce the pain, swelling and inflammation in the back of your knee. The ColdCure® Leg wrap is specially designed to target your Baker's Cyst. Once the swelling and inflammation have stabilized, you can start using the BFST® Knee wrap to heal the knee injury or condition that caused your Baker's Cyst to develop. Healing your knee injury or condition is what will get rid of your Baker's Cyst.
Rest is Required for a Quick Recovery
When treating your Baker's Cyst, resting the affected leg is extremely important. You don't want to risk re-injuring the area and making the condition worse. Consider using crutches as this will prevent strain and re-injury to your knee. Start with the ColdCure® Leg wrap first to reduce the inflammation and alleviate the pain in the back of your knee. When the swelling and inflammation is gone, start healing your underlying knee injury or condition with the BFST Knee® wrap. BFST® works to accelerate the healing process by promoting blood flow in the area of injury. Use ColdCure® and BFST® in combination for maximum results and even faster healing.
The Ultimate Solution:
If you Really want to get better, here's Exactly what you need to do.
- Wear a ColdCure® wrap as much as possible. This will help decrease inflammation and swelling in the back of your knee while you heal.
- Treat yourself with BFST® first thing every morning. Treat yourself with BFST 2 or 3 more times throughout the day. This will help heal your knee injury or condition quickly.
- Avoid re-straining the knee as much as possible. Giving your knee a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your underlying knee condition or injury can truly heal and your Baker's Cyst can go away - Finally.
Dealing With Pain
Painkillers Only Make Things Worse
Painkillers mask the pain, making it easy to forget to rest your knee. Without fail this causes people to overstress and re-injure their knee. It is understandable that you need relief from the pain, so if you have to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you are resting. Using painkillers when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
A ColdCure® Leg wrap from King Brand® is specifically designed for relieving the pain and swelling of a Baker's Cyst. This innovative wrap is incredibly soothing and provides protection and support for the back of your knee. The pain killing element is actually incredibly powerful and it works instantly - there's no 20 minute wait like with pills.
Baker's Cysts can be extremely painful and debilitating. NSAIDs such as ASA, acetampinophen or ibuprofen are often used to treat the pain but these drugs do nothing to treat the actual condition. In fact, NSAIDs are known blood thinners and make the bleeding worse for fresh tissue injuries. Typical pain medications actually interfere with the healing process. Cortisone injections are often used to address the symptoms of a Baker's Cyst but they do nothing to heal your underlying condition and can put you at a very high risk of further injury.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with a Baker's Cyst, nothing works better than cold compression.
ColdCure® technology was developed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin and underlying tissue. As a result, ColdCure® therapy can be applied for extended periods of time during the day. This provides you with superior relief from the swelling and pain that come with a Baker's Cyst. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® Leg wrap. Put it on the back of your knee and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your Baker's Cyst. The wrap around design and the soft yet rigid gel pack allow for easy application to a sore, tender Baker's Cyst. You can walk with it on and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.
The ColdCure® wrap is made entirely of very stretchy material. It wraps around the back of your knee and applies a very gentle pressure over the entire Baker's Cyst. The wrap comes with swappable cold packs of a very special design. They are soft and flexible and mold perfectly to the back of your knee, yet the gel inside them won't squeeze out of place. Each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 large gel packs. You use them 1 at a time, keeping the other 2 in the fridge or freezer so you can keep swapping them out as many times as you like. There's no need to take a break between treatments if you're using gel packs stored in the fridge. You can keep using them as long as you want the pain relief.
Blood Flow is Essential for Healing
You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. King Brand® are the innovators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). For a knee injury, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Enhanced blood flow brings extra oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the area - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured knee at rest often has restricted blood flow, which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity will promote blood flow, but all too often it also results in small but frequent re-injury, which extends the healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops. With a King Brand® BFST® Knee wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can heal your knee and get rid of your Baker's Cyst at a surprisingly rapid rate.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices are NOT heating pads.
BFST® is exactly what you need to heal the underlying knee injury or condition that caused your Baker's Cyst to develop. By healing your knee, your Baker's Cyst will go away as a result, with a decreased chance of it coming back.
The BFST® Knee wrap will stimulate blood flow through your knee while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed knee can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. Oxygen and nutrient-rich blood enable the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your knee to heal properly and quickly. The device is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on and sit back and relax. Often people notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their knee as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The effects last up to 4 hours, which means long after your 20 minute treatment is over, the blood keeps flowing and your knee keeps healing. The more you do it, the longer it lasts and the healthier your knee gets.
The promotion of blood flow has obvious benefits. The reminder of the injury is incredibly important too, because avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. The BFST® device is designed to be worn even when turned off to help protect your knee from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening your recovery time. Patients enjoy the support and cushioning BFST® wraps provide and appreciate that they are healing - patients like wearing them, they know it's helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.
Don't Stop Using BFST®
It's important to understand that the healing process takes much longer than most people realize. After 4-6 weeks of treatment your pain may be gone, but that doesn't mean you're healed. Even if your pain is 100% gone, you may only be 20% or 30% healed. This is why you need to continue using the BFST® Knee wrap for months after the pain is gone. Regular BFST® treatments will help your tissue get stronger and will protect your knee from re-injury. If you want to maintain the healing you've done and get your tissue back to full strength, make sure you do a BFST® treatment before any physical activity.
Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® Treatments
Relieve Pain & Suffering
Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments. Combination Therapy is much more effective than using just ColdCure® or just BFST®. This is because you're getting both the pain and swelling relief of ColdCure® and the healing benefits of BFST®, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Baker's Cyst and underlying knee condition or injury.
Use the ColdCure® wrap 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 inflammation and swelling has subsided. Start your BFST® treatments on Level 1. For maximum benefit, please take into consideration that each 20 minute treatment optimizes your blood circulation for an average of 4 hours. We recommend 3-4 treatments daily, spread throughout the day.
During the day, do a BFST® treatment every 4 hours or before any type of physical activity. This can include anything that puts a strain on the injured area (walking, standing for extended periods, etc). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow. Do a ColdCure® treatment any time you experience a pain flare-up or after any physical activity to prevent further injury and reduce swelling and inflammation. Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment to use BFST® again. This time will allow the blood flow and body temperature to regulate again. Refrain from using ColdCure® within the 4 hours following your 20 minute BFST® treatment. This will counteract the treatment. If necessary, use the ColdCure® wrap for pain control, then follow up with another BFST® treatment.

XC RigiGel® - High Performance, Temperature Balancing Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® packs distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to the back of the knee, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy in our gel packs is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature balancing power of these gel packs is unmatched.
XC RigiGel® packs have 2 different coloured sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will give you all the same benefits that our high performance XC RigiGel® has to offer. The gel pack can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards the back of your knee or away from the back of your knee since the gel pack is not side specific.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
The King Brand® ColdCure® Leg wrap is an FDA Registered Class I medical device. This medical grade cold compression wrap is designed for home use. Cold and compression applied to a Baker's Cyst immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as the result of a soft tissue injury. The ColdCure® wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in soft tissue injuries.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that temperatures below freezing can be too cold to effectively relieve pain and swelling. And these temperatures can also be dangerous. Ice (and other freezer based substitutes such as the blue ice pack) can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing "cold burns" and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue. The proper solution is RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation. We don't want to apply ice, we want to apply cold that is just above freezing. Yes, you want cold - and lots of it - but not so cold that it is below the freezing point of water.
While we recommend that you start by using them at refrigerator temperatures, you can store the XC RigiGel® packs in the freezer and use them as freezer packs. Even at the coldest freezer temperatures they retain all their flexibility and cold capacity. In terms of flex and form they feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do from the freezer.
Each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 large gel packs that contain 10x the amount of gel of other wraps, allowing for extended treatment durations. When stored in the freezer, our XC RigiGel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than standard gel packs. This means they stay cold longer so you won't have to swap the gels as often. Longer treatment times and more cold power means better control of pain and swelling and less handling of the injured area. This all results in an overall colder and more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Leg gel packs are enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the back of the knee, providing maximum coverage of your Baker's Cyst. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - the back of the knee is shaped very differently from any other body part and each body part deserves a custom designed pack if it's going to work the best.
No other wrap in the world has specifically designed cold packs for each and every part of the body. The wrap molds the cold pack around the back of the knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the entire painful area. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a Baker's Cyst treatment device.
Always the right temperature
Gel stays in place
Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our patented Energy Web®, specially controlled EMR energy envelops the entire knee and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.
The BFST® Knee wrap has 3 different power settings, so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your knee heals. During your first treatment, your knee area will feel quite warm. This is because your circulation is poor at first. The more you use the device, the less warming sensation you will feel. This is good. As the warmth lessens from treatment to treatment, this is an indication that the circulation in your knee is improving. Better circulation means better blood flow all the time, not just during treatments. This is the goal. When you feel very little warmth during a treatment, it is time to move up to the next power level. Don't rush it though, more heat does not mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
This is not a heating pad. Heating pads only heat the surface of the skin. Heating the surface of the skin does nothing to heal the damaged tissue below the dermal layer. BFST® penetrates deep below the skin to stimulate blood flow in the area of injury, creating an ideal environment for healing. The difference is significant.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Knee wrap is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the complex form of the knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that guarantee a perfect fit. The wrap and unwrap design allows for easy application to a tender, injured knee. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed and the straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the knee. The device disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so that you are free to move around when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort. The wrap is incredibly comfortable to wear.
