One Super Important Fact:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is caused by excessive stretching and overloading of the tendons and ligaments surrounding the median nerve. Tendons and ligaments do not stretch - they are not supposed to.
Tendons and ligaments are designed by nature not to stretch so that they can hold your bones together and provide the stength from your forearm muscle to your fingers. They are the connecting wires of your body, not rubber bands. Stretching is not a cure for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. It puts strain on your ligaments, tendons, and median nerve, which can actually damage it further and make your situation worse. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome occurs when the tendons and ligaments around the median nerve are damaged from being overstretched or overused. Further stretching is only going to make your situation worse!
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is characterized by pain, tingling and numbness in the hand and fingers. Sufferers may also experience clumsiness of the affected hand. It is believed that repetitive hand motions may cause Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to develop. There are many other factors that can predispose someone to developing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, such as age, weight, heredity, pregnancy, diabetes, etc.
Heal Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a prime example of a condition that involves chronic re-injury. This re-injury takes place whenever you attempt to work and stretch the fragile tissue in the newly healed Carpal Tunnel area. Devices and exercises to stretch and further work the Carpal Tunnel tissues will make your situation worse. That's why the first thing the doctor tells you to do is rest! You can't fix a repetitive strain injury with more strain. You want to speed up the healing process, not reverse it.
For faster healing and a reduced chance of re-injury, rest the wrist completely. Avoid any activities that could cause further strain to your wrist. Stop doing the activities that caused the condition to develop. Committing to rest is the most important thing you can do to heal your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
King Brand's® ColdCure® and BFST® Wrist wraps are the ultimate healing solution for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Start with ColdCure® treatments to control the pain and swelling in your wrist. When there is no more swelling or inflammation present in the area of injury, it's time to start doing BFST® treatments. BFST® works to stimulate blood flow in the area of injury, which helps heal your damaged tissue. These are the 2 products you need to heal your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as quickly and completely as possible.
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 the inflammation and protect your wrist from further damage while you heal. Whenever you need additional pain relief, swap out the XC RigiGel® with one from the fridge or freezer.
- Treat yourself with BFST® first thing every morning. Treat yourself with BFST® 2 or 3 more times throughout the day. This will help you heal quickly.
- Avoid re-straining the injury as much as possible. Giving your wrist a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can truly heal - Finally.
Doctors Know - Blood Flow is Essential
You don't have to wait. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. King Brand Healthcare Products® are the innovators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, blood flow is a critical element in rapid recovery. BFST® brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the area - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured wrist 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® Wrist wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured Carpal Tunnel area while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome at a surprisingly rapid rate.
Dealing With Pain:
Painkillers are BAD, Not Good.
Painkillers mask the pain and cause you to continue to stress and injure your wrist. This only makes things worse. It is understandable that people need relief from the pain, so if you have to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you are not active, such as to help you sleep.
King Brand® manufactures a ColdCure® compression wrap specifically for treating Carpal Tunnel related pain. This innovative device is incredibly soothing and protects your wrist from further injury.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, and other conditions/injuries of the wrist are all extremely painful and debilitating. NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen 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. Cortisone injections are used in extreme cases but these too are intended to address the pain and do not promote healing of the injury itself.

ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, 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, providing superior relief from the swelling and pain that comes with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® Wrist wrap. Put it on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your wrist and body. The coil-like design and the soft yet rigid gel pack make it easy to apply to a tender, injured wrist. You can use it at home or on the go and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.
The ColdCure® wrap looks like a long sleeve, but it is actually made entirely of very stretchy material. It wraps around your wrist and applies a very gentle pressure around your entire wrist. The wrap contains swappable cold packs of a very special design. They are soft and flexible and mold all the way around your wrist, yet the gel inside them won't squeeze out of place. The gel provides a wonderful, cool, cushion for your sore, aching wrist. The gel packs are easily swappable and each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 gel packs. You use them 1 at a time, keeping the other 2 in the fridge so you can keep swapping them out as many times as you like. There's no need to take breaks between treatments. You can keep using them as long as you want the pain relief.
Don't Just Treat the Pain - Heal the Problem Forever.
Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can really recover from Carpal Tunnel injuries. When a professional athlete has a wrist injury, they are given explicit instructions to rest the wrist and use the proper treatment right away - no physical activity, no weight lifting, no repetitive wrist movements - they are ordered to rest the wrist completely. Injured professional athletes are also attended to by professional athletic therapists. These pro therapists have always been assigned to the athlete to ensure they supplement the healing process, to stimulate blood flow many times each day. Regular BFST® treatments are a standard part of that therapy because the more we promote blood flow, the faster we will heal. That's why professional athletes are back in the game in days while regular patients with the same injuries often take weeks or even months to heal. With the addition of BFST®, pro athletes and others who use it are recovering from their aggravated Carpal Tunnel injuries faster than ever.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices are NOT heating pads.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through the entire wrist while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed carpal canal can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for the wrist ligaments to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® wraps have 3 different levels so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your Carpal Tunnel heals. During your first treatment, your wrist area will feel quite warm. This is because at first, your circulation is poor. The more you use the unit, 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 wrist is improving. Better circulation means more 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.
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 the carpal canal from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening the recovery time. Patients enjoy the support and cushioning BFST® wraps provide and appreciate that they are healing - patients like wearing them, they know its helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.
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 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 injur 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.
Increase the effectiveness of your ColdCure® treatments by attaching an Accessory Strap to your Wrist wrap. The Accessory Strap will provide you with additional compression and this means maximum pain and swelling relief.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) 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 wrist and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.
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 and this creates an ideal environment for healing. The difference is significant.
As an FDA Registered Medical Device, the BFST® wrap is suitable and completely safe for in-home use. Home use reduces in-clinic medical costs and further speeds up healing times.
The Energy Web® of the Wrist BFST® device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® around the entire wrist to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire affected area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that guarantee a perfect fit. As well, the wrap and unwrap design allows for easy wrapping of a tender, injured wrist. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the injured carpal canal. The device disconnects right at your wrist from the power supply and controller so that you are free to move about your home when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
Cold compression wraps are standard medical products for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Cold and compression applied to an injured joint immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. This swelling can be in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or tendon sheath of the wrist. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as a result of a soft tissue injury.
The King Brand® ColdCure® Wrist Wrap is a medical grade cold compression wrap designed for in-home use. The ColdCure® wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in soft tissue injuries.
Improving on the RICE standard of injury care, ColdCure® wraps are specifically designed to operate at refrigeration (not freezer) temperatures. This eliminates the potential of skin damage during treatment associated with all freezer wraps. This improved standard is called RCCE® (Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation). RCCE® allows for the wraps to be applied to the patient and used while not attended by a physician or clinician. This is very important given the likelihood of skin damage from alternative devices which use cold packs charged in a freezer.
The oversized cold packs in all ColdCure® wraps contain specially formulated gel with more cooling power per lb than standard wraps. This allows for longer treatment durations without having to recharge the wrap or switch cold packs. The longer treatment times and more cold power means more pain relief, better control of swelling and less handling of the injured area. This all results in a better treatment. Each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 large cold packs, allowing for immediate re-use in clinical settings or the ability for extended treatment durations.
Like the BFST® Wraps, ColdCure® Carpal Tunnel gel packs are enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the wrist. The wrap molds the cold pack around the entire wrist to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the entire wrist area. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - the wrist 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. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a Carpal Tunnel treatment device.
XC RigiGel® - Stays in Place
ColdCure® gel packs use XC RigiGel® technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area when pressure is applied. The gel stays in place, even under pressure, yet it is still soft and molds to the body. ColdCure® wraps are unique and of a higher quality and performance than any other wrap available. Nothing else comes even close. Again, like the BFST® wrap, the ColdCure® wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that guarantee a perfect fit.
XC RigiGel® - High Performance, Temperature Balancing Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to the wrist, gel starts to warm up that specific spot faster than the rest of the gel. Our gel packs are superior to others and the cold in the gel pack gets 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 pack. The temperature balancing power of these gel packs is unmatched.
The gel pack has 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 your wrist or away from your wrist since the gel pack is not side specific.
