One Super Important Fact:
The products and treatments discussed below ARE intended to prevent, treat and cure, a torn meniscus injury and its related pain. The products below ARE FDA registered medical devices.
Rapid Recovery Without Surgery
Meniscus "Repair" Surgery almost always involves the cutting away of torn sections of the meniscus. The name is misleading. Very seldom does meniscus repair surgery actually repair or stitch back together your torn meniscus. The procedure usually gets rid of the pain by getting rid of the tissue, not fixing the actual problem. Meniscus surgery should really be a last resort.
Your Meniscus is living tissue that can heal. Trying to heal it quickly before it tears again is the big challenge. Don't allow your meniscus to be cut away forever by "repair surgery". Use King Brand's® ColdCure® and BFST® Knee wraps to heal properly so you can have a knee that will support you for the rest of your life.
The Ultimate Solution:
If you Really want to get better, here's Exactly what you need to do.
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.
Wear a ColdCure® wrap as much as possible. This will protect your meniscus from further damage while you heal. Whenever you need additional pain relief, swap out the XC RigiGel® with one from the fridge or freezer. The pain relief is incredible.
Avoid re-straining the injury as much as possible. Giving your knee a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of meniscus healing.
Do this and your torn meniscus 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 a torn meniscus, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood flow brings 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® Meniscus therapy device, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while the patient is at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your meniscus injury at a surprisingly rapid rate.
Dealing With Pain:
Painkillers are BAD, Not Good
Painkillers mask the pain. Without fail this causes people to over stress and re-injure their knee. 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 aren't putting weight on your knee. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Torn meniscus injuries are extremely painful and debilitating conditions. 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 actually interfere with the healing process. Cortisone injections are used in extreme cases but these too are intended to only address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injury 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 Meniscus damage, 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 a torn meniscus. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® Meniscus wrap. Put it on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your knee and body. The wrap around design and the soft yet rigid gel pack provide you with the soothing, effective pain relief you need. You can walk with it on and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.
The ColdCure® wrap looks like velvet cloth, but it is actually made entirely of very stretchy material. It wraps around your knee and applies a very gentle pressure over your entire patella area. The front of the wrap contains swappable cold packs of a very special design. They are soft and flexible and mold to the shape of your knee, yet the gel inside them won't squeeze out of place. Even under your full body weight the gel
provides a wonderful, cool, cushion for your sore, aching knee. The gel packs aren't just rectangle shaped packs, they are specially shaped so they wrap completely up and around the knee cap, surrounding the entire meniscus, so they draw the pain and tension out of your entire knee. 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 a break 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 knee injuries. When a professional athlete tears their meniscus, they have explicit instructions to stay off their injured knee - no physical activity, no weight on the leg, crutches - they are ordered to rest the knee 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 meniscus 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 knee area while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed meniscus 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 meniscus tissue to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® wraps have 3 different power settings so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your meniscus heals. During your first treatment, your meniscus and the area around your knee cap 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 knee 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 your knee 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 it's helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.
Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® Treatments
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 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.
Increase the effectiveness of your ColdCure® treatments by attaching an Accessory Strap to your Knee wrap. The Accessory Strap will provide you with additional compression, and this means maximum pain and swelling relief.
Medical Function - BFST® Wrap
The BFST® (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 affected body part 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, creating 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 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. As well, the wrap and unwrap design allows for easy application to a tender, injured knee. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the meniscus injury. The device disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so that you are free to move around your home when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort. The device is incredibly comfortable to wear.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap
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 sheaths within the knee. 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® Knee Wrap is a medical grade cold compression wrap designed for use in hospitals and injury therapy clinics. 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 over-sized 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 of the torn meniscus. Each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 large cold packs allowing for immediate re-use in clinical settings or the ability for extended treatment durations at home.
Like the BFST® Wraps, ColdCure® Knee gels are enclosed in soft, comfortable neoprene wraps. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the knee. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - 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 entire knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the meniscus area. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a torn meniscus treatment device.
XC RigiGel® - Stays in Place
The wraps use XC RigiGel® technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area when pressure is applied. The gel even stays in place under heavy 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 knee, gel starts to warm up in 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 knee or away from your knee since the gel pack is not side specific.
Always the right temperature
Gel stays in place
