Healing Solutions for Knee Injuries

You don't have to suffer. You don't have to wait.
  • You can reduce the pain and swelling.
  • You can heal quickly.
You simply need the right treatment.

One Super Important Fact:

One Super Important Fact

Typically, repair procedures for knee injuries involve stitching the torn ligament or tendon back together. This may give you back the use of your knee, but your 'repaired' knee may permanently lose muscle elasticity. Your knee will never fully recover following surgery. The loss of elasticity means your knee would not be able to handle as much strain as a healthy knee could. These long term effects can cripple you for the rest of your life.

Rapid Recovery Without Surgery

Heal Faster With BFST

In order to fully recover from your knee injury, you need to heal the right way. One of the most crucial steps to a full recovery is rest. Do not strain or use the injured knee, and it will begin to improve over time. Our ColdCure® and BFST® Knee Wraps are the most effective treatment for your knee injury. Start with the ColdCure® Knee Wrap to relieve your pain and inflammation. Once your inflammation and swelling has subsided, start using the BFST® Knee Wrap to stimulate healthy blood flow in your injured knee. This will work to actively heal your damaged tissue.

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 knee 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. Using KB Support Tape will help with this. Giving your knee a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.

Do this and your knee injury can truly heal - finally.

Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing

Improved Blood Flow with BFST

You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For a knee injury, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wraps give your knee the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.

BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to your injury - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured knee at rest often has restricted blood flow. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. With a BFST® Knee Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while you're at rest. This means you can avoid re-injury and heal your damaged tissue at the same time, resulting in a much faster recovery.

BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.

BFST® devices heal soft tissue.

BFST® stimulates blood flow through your entire knee while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed knee injury 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 injured tissue to heal properly and quickly.

BFST Healing Knee Injury

The BFST® device is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on, sit back and relax. BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their knee as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. Since the effects of each 20 minute treatment last for up to 4 hours, it's best to spread your treatments out throughout the day. An ideal treatment regimen would be one treatment first thing in the morning, another treatment in the afternoon, a treatment in the evening and the last treatment of the day right before bed.

Almost as important as the promotion of blood flow is the reminder of your injury. The reminder is what helps you move with care so you don't overdo it and make your injury worse than it already is. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why the BFST® Knee Wrap was designed to be worn even when turned off. When your treatment ends, simply unplug the controller from the device and gently tighten the wrap to your knee. This will provide your injured knee with light support and protection, while also acting as a reminder of your injury.

Dealing With Pain

Knee Injury Treatment Without Drugs

Knee injuries are extremely painful and debilitating. Analgesics and 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, analgesics and 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 address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injury and they put you at a very high risk of further injury.

Painkillers are BAD, Not Good

Painkillers mask the pain. Without fail this causes people to re-injure their knee, which only lengthens their recovery time. 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 off your feet. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.

The best method for treating pain is a ColdCure® Knee Wrap from King Brand®. ColdCure® Wraps are a safer, more effective alternative to painkillers. They also work much faster. While painkillers take 20 minutes to start working, there's no waiting with ColdCure®. As soon as you put the wrap on your knee, you will feel the cool, soothing relief. ColdCure® Wraps are superior to painkillers in every way.

ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.

ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.

For dealing with the swelling and pain that comes with a knee injury, nothing works better than cold and compression.

ColdCure® technology was specifically developed 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 to your knee for extended periods of time, providing superior relief from pain and swelling. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® Knee Wrap. Put it on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your knee. You can walk with it on and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.

ColdCure Eliminates Pain and Swelling

The ColdCure® Knee Wrap comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. Unlike other gel formulas that are watery and mushy, XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible. This means the pack molds comfortably to the shape of your Knee, yet the gel inside won't move out of place. The gel won't flow away from your injury, even when put under heavy pressure for long periods of time. This means you always get an even, consistent treatment. The gel packs are inserted inside the soft, stretchy neoprene wrap one at a time. This means you can have the other two charging in the freezer to keep your therapy going.

Protect Your Knee Between Treatments

When you're not doing treatments with your BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your knee injury worse. Apply KB Support Tape to your knee between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments. This will provide your injured knee with additional support and protection.

Our skin is soft and elastic and can stretch much more than the tissue underneath. When you apply KB Support Tape to your skin, it becomes a much more rigid surface than before, serving to limit how much the skin can stretch. The Tape makes your skin a source of outside support to hold your tissue in place, helping to prevent re-injury. That's why we call it armor for your injury.

KB Support Tape - Use All Day During Work & Play

KB Tape
Add to Cart

KB Support Tape provides your injury with lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. It also prevents re-injury by providing support and protection for your injured tissue.

KB Support Tape comes in 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These 2 styles come in 4 different colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your personal style.

Knee Injury Tape Treatment

The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are ideal for people who want to use their tape on-the-go. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can apply and go! Each roll of Pre-Cut KB Support Tape contains 20 individual strips. Each Pre-Cut Strip is 2 inches wide and 10 inches long.

The Continuous Rolls of KB Support Tape are perfect for you if you're looking for a more customizable Tape. You can cut the Tape into a variety of different shapes and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.

While we found the above application to be effective for knee injuries, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for your given injury to find the one that works best for you. Also, remember to listen to what your body is telling you. Use the pain as a guide. If you feel the pain in a specific area of your knee, apply the tape there.

The Medical Tape Advantage

What sets KB Support Tape apart from the rest? It's not athletic tape, it's medical tape. This means our Tape is manufactured to ISO 10993 standards, which ensures that our Tape is made from extremely safe, biocompatible materials. Our Tape is actually made from materials that are safer than most baby products, including toys, clothes and diapers. Don't let the big brand tapes fool you. Most of them are made from toxic materials, because there are no standards for athletic tape. Some big brand athletic tape glues even contain carcinogenic ingredients. At King Brand®, your health and safety is of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape® is manufactured to such high standards.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape

BFST® for Rapid Healing
ColdCure® for Pain & Swelling
KB Tape to Prevent Re-Injury

Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape between your treatments. Combination Therapy is much more effective than using just one product or the other. This is because you're getting the pain and swelling relief of ColdCure®, the healing benefits of BFST®, and the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your knee injury.

Step 1

Use the ColdCure® Wrap several times a day to 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.

Step 2

Combination Therapy

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.

Step 3

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. Follow with another BFST® treatment 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment. 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.

Step 4

Any time you're not doing a ColdCure® or BFST® treatment, wear KB Support Tape on your knee. More Tape means more support, so if you're doing something physically demanding, you may want to apply an extra layer of Tape. If you're taping and doing multiple BFST® treatments throughout the day, do your first BFST® treatment before the Tape is applied and your last treatment after the Tape has been removed at the end of the day.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing

The BFST® Knee Wrap is an FDA Registered Class II medical device. These devices meet very high standards of quality, safety and performance. In order to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments, these devices must comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards. Manufacturers of consumer grade products can't say the same, because they're not FDA Registered.

King Brand Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy Action

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 proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe, low levels of EMR energy envelop your knee and stimulate 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.

BFST Power Controller

BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. Everyone should start their treatments at Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as their knee heals. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up your healing time. You need to condition the body first.

When you first start your treatments on Level 1, your knee 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 knee 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.

BFST® Wraps are far superior to heating pads. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your tissue damage. Heating pads can't do this. BFST® Wraps stimulate healthy blood flow in the area of your injury, deep below the skin. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is huge.

The Energy Web® of the Knee BFST® device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap helps shape the Energy Web® to mold around the complex form of your knee to ensure that there is always an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. The Velcro® straps attached to the wrap make it easily adjustable. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for your knee. The device easily disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so you are free to move around your home when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort.

Complete the Healing Process

Complete the Healing Process

You need to keep doing BFST® treatments even after the pain is gone, because the pain ends long before you've finished healing. The entire healing process is very complex and takes much longer than most people realize. (You can click here for the full story.) The key thing to remember is that long after the pain stops, your knee is still healing. This means you need to continue doing BFST® treatments in order to complete the healing process. Doing regular BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone is extremely beneficial. Do a BFST® treatment prior to any physical activity to warm up your circulatory system. You should also continue to tape your knee to help prevent re-injury.

Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief

The King Brand® ColdCure® Knee 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 an injured knee 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 resulting 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.

ColdCure® RigiGel® packs are much safer and more effective than ice and products that use mushy blue gel. Why? Because RigiGel® packs are like ice, but they stay at 0°C. While they may start at about -20°C straight from the freezer, after a few minutes they will go to 0°C and stay at 0°C for a long time. ColdCure Stays at a Safe Temperature This is the ideal temperature for cold therapy, because it's cold enough to relieve your pain and swelling, but safe enough to not cause cold burns. Ice and blue gel packs will also start out at -20°C and rapidly go to 0°C, but then their temperature will keep rising quickly, instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 0°C. The XC Gel® danger zone is very small, but the benefits are huge.

While XC Gel® packs are designed to be stored in the freezer, you can store them in the fridge if you find them too cold from the freezer. Not all freezers are the same. If you find that the gel is too stiff from the freezer, leave it out for 1-2 minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment.

Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation

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 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.

10x More Gel and 3x More Cold

XC Gel® packs contain 10x more gel per lb than other packs, for maximum coverage of your knee. When stored in the freezer, our XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than standard gel packs. This means faster relief of pain and swelling. It also means longer treatment times without having to get up and swap the gel packs. Bigger packs with more gel inside plus superior cooling power equals an overall better, more effective treatment.

Knee Coverage Zone

ColdCure® Knee gel packs are custom designed for the shape of the knee. This ensures that your injury will receive an even distribution of cooling power. Every one of our ColdCure® gel packs is specially designed for a specific body part. We don't just use one generic gel pack with all of our wraps. Each body part is shaped differently, which is why all of our gel packs are shaped differently. This ensures the best treatment and coverage possible. This product was 100% designed to treat knee injuries.

Unique XC RigiGel® Formula

ColdCure Eliminates Hot Spots

Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to a knee injury, 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 this gel formula is unmatched.

XC Gel® packs have 2 different colored 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. XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your knee or away from your knee since they're not side specific.
