One Super Important Fact:
Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome won't go away unless you rest your wrist. Stop doing the activities that caused your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to develop. Carpal Tunnel Sydrome is caused by overuse of the wrist, which is associated with repetitive hand movements. If you want to heal your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as quickly as possible, rest your wrist and use King Brand's® ColdCure® and BFST® Wrist Wraps.
Heal Your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Our 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, 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.
Aside from ColdCure® and BFST® treatments, the most important thing you can do is rest your wrist as much as possible. Rest will help you avoid further strain and re-injury, and this means a faster recovery.
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 to relieve your pain and swelling and protect your wrist from further damage.
- Do a BFST® treatment first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments 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.
Blood Flow is Essential for Healing
You don't have to wait. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) gives your wrist the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.
BFST® brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured 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 your 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 your wrist 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.
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.
The BFST® Wrist Wrap is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on and sit back and relax. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their wrist 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 wrist keeps healing. The more you do it, the longer is lasts and the healthier your wrist 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® Wrap is designed to be worn even when turned off to help protect your carpal canal from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening your recovery time. Patients enjoy the support and cushioning BFST® Wraps provide - patients like wearing them, they know it's helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.
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 Syndrome. When a professional athlete has Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, 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 Carpal Tunnel Syndrome faster than ever.
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.
The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap is specifically designed to treat the pain that comes with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This innovative device is incredibly soothing and protects your wrist from further injury. The painkilling element is powerful and it works instantly - there's no 20 minute wait like with pills.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome can be 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. Typical pain medications acutally interfere with the healing process. Cortisone injections are used in extreme cases but these too are intended to address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injury itself and they 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 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 come with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap is easy to use and each one comes with 3 gel packs you can charge in the fridge or the freezer. Charge the gel packs for at least 1 hour prior to use. Insert the gel pack inside the wrap; apply the wrap to your wrist until the cold diminishes, then swap the gel pack with a freshly charged one from the fridge or freezer.
The ColdCure® Wrist 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 to the entire injured area. The wrap comes with 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 move out of place. Each ColdCure® Wrist Wrap comes with 3 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.

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 Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
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 (lifting, repetitive wrist movements, 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.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. Class II medical devices are serious medical devices with very high standards of quality, safety and performance. Class II medical devices have hundreds of pages of regulations and standards to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. This is a medical device, not a 'consumer good', but it is available to the public to buy and use at home.
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.
BFST® Wraps have 3 different power levels, so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your Carpal Tunnel Syndrome heals. During your first treatment, your wrist will feel quite warm. This is because at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, 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 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 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. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for your injured carpal canal. The device disconnects right at your wrist from the power supply and controller so you are free to move about your home when not receiving treatment.
Complete the Healing Process
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® Wrist Wrap for months after the pain is gone. Regular BFST® treatments will help your tissue get stronger and will protect your wrist 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.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. These medical grade cold compression wraps are designed for home use. Cold and compression applied to a wrist with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing the long term permanent damage that can result from soft tissue injuries. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury, but the proper solution is actually RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression & Elevation. You don't want to apply ice, you 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. 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.
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 firmness. In terms of flex and form they feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do from the freezer.
Each ColdCure® Wrist Wrap comes with 3 gel packs that contain 10x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of the injured area. This means your wrist will receive a targeted, consistent cold treatment every time. When stored in the freezer, our XC RigiGel® packs have 3x more cooling power 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 superior control of pain and swelling.
The ColdCure® Wrist gel pack is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the wrist. 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. The wrap molds the cold pack around your wrist to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over your Carpal Tunnel. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome treatment device.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® packs help to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to the wrist, the gel starts to warm up 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 this gel formula 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.
