You've Been Injured
ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) related Injuries are among the most common knee injuries. The most common ACL injury involves tearing it either partially or completely. The effects of these tears can range from very mild to debilitating. No matter the severity of the injury, two things are for certain, pain and swelling. If they persist, you are in for a slow recovery. As someone who wants to get back to normal life as soon as possible, you can't afford to have your recovery slowed down. Fortunately King Brand Healthcare Products® has a solution to get you back to normal life as soon as soon as possible. This solution is a combination of BFST® and ColdCure® treatments.
King Brand Healthcare Products® are the innovators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®). For injuries of the ligaments such as the ACL, blood flow is one of the most critical elements in rapid recovery. Blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the ligament which allows for a faster rate of recovery. Unfortunately, you may not be able to move your knee, and an ACL at rest often has restricted blood flow which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. With a King Brand® BFST® Knee therapy device, blood flow can be stimulated in the ACL while the patient is at rest. With improved blood flow and without the risk of re-injuring your ligament due to physical activity, patients can recover from their ligament tears at surprisingly rapid rates.
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 ACL from further damage while you heal. Whenever you need additional pain relief, swap out the RigiGel® with one from the fridge or freezer.
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 healing.
Do this and your ACL injury 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 ACL injuries, 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® Knee 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, patients can recover from their ACL injury at surprisingly rapid rates.
Reducing Knee Pain and Swelling
Knee Pain and swelling. In minor ACL injuries, patients may not even know that there is something wrong without pain and swelling. Pain and Swelling are the symptoms that drive patients to seek medical help no matter how much their movement may be affected by the ACL tear. As professional healthcare providers, we care about curing the ailment and recognize that the pain isn't the problem, its only a sign of the problem. All too often our patients rate our professional service based on our ability to address the pain and the swelling because that's the only part that they may be able to feel. We want our patients to think highly of us, but we also want them to live without pain while their knee is recovering. Pain killers are an easy solution, but we all know they are not the best solution.
Dealing With Pain:
Pain Killers are BAD not good.
Pain killers mask the pain and cause you to continue to stress and injure your ACL. This only makes things worse. It is understandable that people need relief from the pain so if you have to take pain killers try to restrict them to times when you are off your knees such as to help you sleep.
King Brand Healthcare manufactures a ColdCure® cold compression wrap specifically for treating ACL related pain. This innovative device is incredibly soothing and protects your foot from further injury.
ACL injuries, meniscus tears, and knee injuries are all 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. 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 swelling and pain associated with ACL 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 an ACL injury. While King Brand makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® ACL 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 is just like attaching a magic pain sucking sponge to your sore knee. You can walk with it on and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.
The Cold Cure 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 swap-able 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. Imagine having tiny soothing waterbeds wrapped around your knee - it feels like heaven. 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 ACL region, so they draw the pain and tension out of your entire knee region. The gel packs are easily swap-able 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.
Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can recover from an ACL tear. A professional athlete needs their ACL to be in prime condition at all time so they can perform at their best. Because of this they are ordered to rest the knee completely.
Injured professional athletes though also are attended to by professional athletic therapists who have always been assigned to the athlete to ensure they supplement the healing process with exercises and stretches in order to stimulate blood flow frequently. Regular BFST® treatments are a standard part of that therapy because the more we promote blood flow, the faster the patient will heal. That's why professional athletes are back in the game in days while regular patients with ACL 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 ACL 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 the patient is at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided inflamed ACL 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 ACL tissue to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® kits have 3 different power settings so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your ACL heals. During your first treatment, your ACL 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 though 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 its helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.
Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
The BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in the torn ligament below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our patented Energy Web®, specially controlled EMR energy envelops the damaged ACL and stimulates blood flow in the ligament deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the injured area accelerating the healing process.
As an FDA Registered Medical Device the BFST® wrap is suitable for use in hospital and therapeutic clinics. Because the device is completely safe for patients to use themselves, the BFST® wraps can also be used by the patients at home. Home use reduces in-clinic medical costs and further speeds up healing times.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® knee device 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 ligament allowing for thorough healing an recovery. 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 the tender knee without having to slip into or out of a 'sock-like' device which may prove to be difficult due to restricted movement caused by an ACL tear.
After treatment the wrap does not need to be removed and the straps can even be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the injured ligament. The device disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so that the user is free to move about the treatment clinic or 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 - Extreme Pain Relief
Cold compression wraps are standard medical products for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Cold and compression applied to an injured ligament immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling within. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage due to an ACL tear.
The King Brand® ColdCure® Knee Wrap is a medical grade cold compression wrap designed for use in hospitals and injury therapy clinics as well as in the home for the constant treatment needed to heal an ACL injury. The ColdCure® wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in the healing of ligaments.
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. These all result in a better treatment of knee injuries. Each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 large cold packs allowing for immediate re-use in clinical settings or the ability for extended treatment durations in the patient's home.
Like the BFST® Wraps, ColdCure® Knee wraps 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 entire injured area. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a knee treatment device.
The wraps use RigiGel® technology so that the gel does not flow away from your ligament when put under pressure while still being soft and malleable. 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. The wrap and unwrap design allows for easily applying it around a tender, injured, knee without having to slip into or out of a tube shaped device.
