Meniscus Treatment
Before and After Surgery



Improve surgical outcomes with home medical devices.

  • Patients have reduced the pain and swelling.
  • Patients can recover more quickly.

You simply need to use the right post surgical treatment.

One Super Important Fact:


Meniscus "Repair" Surgery often involves cutting away torn sections of the Meniscus - the name is very misleading. Very seldom does Meniscus Repair Surgery actually completely repair your torn Meniscus. The procedure usually gets rid of the pain by getting rid of the tissue, instead of fixing the actual problem. Meniscus Surgery should really be a last resort.


How to Heal Without Surgery


The 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 quickly and completely. Start with the ColdCure® Knee Wrap to reduce your pain and swelling. When the swelling and inflammation is gone, start doing BFST® treatments. The BFST® Knee Wrap will stimulate blood flow in your knee to accelerate the healing of your Meniscus.


Rest is Important

Rest is also important if you want to avoid surgery and heal properly. Avoid any activities that could further aggravate your Meniscus injury. Stop doing the activity that caused your injury. Try to rest your knee as much as possible. Using crutches will help you stay off your knee to prevent re-injury.


If your symptoms persist after 4-6 weeks of rest and conservative treatment, you may require surgery. There are 2 types of Meniscus surgery - Meniscectomy and Meniscus Repair. In a Meniscectomy, the damaged parts of your Meniscus are removed, leaving only the healthy parts of your Meniscus intact. In Meniscus Repair Surgery, the torn pieces of your Meniscus are stitched up. While there is a longer expected recovery time with Meniscus Repair Surgery, a Meniscectomy can result in other health problems in the future, such as arthritis.


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 Meniscus 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 knee a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.

Do this and your Meniscus injury can truly heal - Finally.


Post-Surgery Recovery


Should you opt to go forward with surgery, be aware that while it may be the quick fix you were looking for, you will not be healthy immediately after the surgery is complete. The removal or repair of the damaged area will be painful following the operation. Also, the tissue will not be fully healed, and will require a period of healing afterwards.


If surgery is your only option, our products can aid in your recovery. Our Knee ColdCure® Wrap will help reduce your pain and swelling following surgery. When the swelling and inflammation is gone, use our Knee BFST® Wrap to help increase blood flow to the Meniscus and speed up your recovery time.



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 your Meniscus much more quickly with the right treatment. For a Meniscus injury, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) gives your Meniscus the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.


BFST® brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured Meniscus - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured Meniscus at rest often has restricted blood flow. 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® Knee Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your Meniscus while you're at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Meniscus injury or surgery 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 throughout your entire Meniscus 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.


The BFST® device 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 knee as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The effects last up to 4 hours, Repair post-surgery tissue with BFST which means long after your 20 minute treatment is over, the blood keeps flowing and your Meniscus keeps healing. The more you do it, the longer it lasts and the healthier your Meniscus 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® 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 your 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.


Don't Just Treat the Pain - Heal the Problem Forever


Recovering Faster Than Ever

Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can really recover from Meniscus injuries. When a professional athlete injures their Meniscus, they have explicit instructions to stay off their injured knee - no physical activity, no weight on the knee, 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 Meniscus injuries and surgeries faster than ever.



Dealing With Pain


Painkillers are BAD, Not Good


Painkillers mask the pain and cause you to continue to injure your Meniscus. 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 off your knee. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.


The safest and most effective pain reliever is a ColdCure® Knee Wrap from King Brand®. The ColdCure® Knee Wrap is specifically designed to treat the pain associated with Meniscus injuries and Meniscus surgery. They do a superior job of relieving swelling and inflammation. This innovative device is incredibly soothing and protects your Meniscus from further injury. The pain killing element is actually very powerful and it works instantly - there's no 20 minute wait like with pills.


Meniscus Treatment Without Drugs

Meniscus injuries are 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 actually 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.


ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.

ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.

For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with a Meniscus injury or Meniscus surgery, nothing works better than cold and 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 Meniscus injury or Meniscus surgery. 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. You can walk with it on and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.


King Brand Knee Coldcure Wrap

The ColdCure® Wrap is made entirely of very stretchy material. It wraps around your knee and applies a gentle pressure over your entire Meniscus area. The wrap comes with 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 move out of place. Each ColdCure® Knee 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 when using gel packs from the fridge. You can keep using them as long as you want the pain relief.

Combination Therapy Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® Treatments


Complete TreatmentComplete Treatment Relieve PainRelieve Pain & Suffering Heal QuicklyHeal Quickly

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 Meniscus injury.


Step 1


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.


Step 2


Combination Therapy is Coldcure and BFST Together

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. 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 for the public to buy and use at home.


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 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 have very little therapeutic value since they 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.


BFST Power Controller

BFST® Wraps have 3 different settings so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your Meniscus heals. During your first treatment, 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 Meniscus 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 Energy Web® of the Knee BFST® Wrap is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold up and around your knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire Meniscus 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 knee. The device disconnects at the wrap 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.


Complete the Healing Process


Keep doing BFST® treatments even after you think you've healed. The healing process takes much longer than most people realize. Even after you "feel better", your Meniscus may only be 20% or 30% healed. If you want your Meniscus to heal completely, you need to continue doing BFST® treatments for months after you've healed. This will maintain the healing you've done and prevent against re-injury. Do a BFST® treatment before you do any physical activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system and help you avoid further injury.


Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief


The King Brand® ColdCure® 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 Meniscus 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.


King Brand Cold Cure Wrap

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 (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. 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.


While we recommend that you start by using them at refrigerator temperatures, you can store the XC® gel 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.


King Brand Time To Heal

Each ColdCure® Knee Wrap comes with 3 gel packs that contain 10x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of your Meniscus area. When stored in the freezer, our XC® gel packs have 3x more cooling power per lb 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 better control of swelling and less handling of your sore knee. This all results in an overall colder and more effective treatment.


Coverage zone for meniscus injuries

The ColdCure® Knee gel pack is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the knee. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps. 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 up and around your knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power over the entire Meniscus area. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a Meniscus injury treatment device.



Unique XC RigiGel® Formula


Coldcure Eliminates Hotspots

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 a Meniscus 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 knee will receive the cooling power of the entire 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 knee or away from your knee since the gel pack is not side specific.


Exceptional Customer Service


Every ColdCure® and BFST® purchase comes with the additional benefit of having one of our knowledgeable King Brand® Advisors contact you several days after your order has been delivered. This is to ensure you have received your order, find out how your treatments are going, and answer any questions you may have.

While one of our Advisors will follow-up with you directly, you are welcome to contact us any time. We are here to help you every step of the way. Your recovery is very important to us.
