One Super Important Fact:
Meniscus "Repair" Surgery almost always involves cutting away torn sections of the Meniscus. The name is misleading. Very seldom does Meniscus Repair Surgery actually repair or stitch back together your 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. Use our ColdCure® and BFST® Knee Wraps to avoid invasive surgery and heal your Meniscus.
Rapid Recovery Without Surgery
You should only undergo Meniscus surgery if it is absolutely necessary. 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 finally heal and feel better. Start with ColdCure® treatments to eliminate the pain and swelling in your knee. Use ColdCure® until your swelling and inflammation has subsided, then start doing BFST® treatments. BFST® will work to stimulate blood flow in your injured Meniscus, which is what your body needs to heal itself.
It's also important to understand that you need to rest in order to heal your Meniscus. Avoid any activities that could result in re-injury, as this will only lengthen your recovery time. Stop doing whatever activity caused your Meniscus injury. Try to rest your knee as much as possible. Using crutches will help prevent any further injury to your Meniscus.
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 injury.
- 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 Meniscus healing.
Do this and your Meniscus Tear can truly heal - Finally.
Dealing With Pain
Painkillers are BAD, Not Good
Painkillers mask the pain. Without fail this causes people to overstress 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 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 ColdCure® compression wrap from King Brand® is specifically designed for treating Meniscus related pain. It does a superior job of relieving pain and swelling. This innovative wrap is incredibly soothing and protects your knee from further injury. The painkilling element is actually incredibly powerful and it works instantly - there's no 20 minute wait like with pills.
Meniscus Tears 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 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 Tear, 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 Meniscus Tear.
The ColdCure® Knee 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 knee until the cold diminishes, then swap the gel pack with a freshly charged one from the fridge or freezer. You can walk with it on and it feels wonderful the entire time you are wearing it.
The wrap is made entirely of very stretchy material. It wraps around your knee and applies a very gentle pressure over your entire patella area. Each ColdCure® 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 squeeze out of place. 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 Tears 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.
The BFST® Knee Wrap is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on, sit back and relax. Often people 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, which means long after your 20 minute treatment is over, the blood keeps flowing and your knee keeps healing. The more you do it, the longer it lasts and the healthier your knee 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. Simply disconnect the controller and power adaptor from the wrap and gently tighten the straps. 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.
Blood Flow is Essential for Healing
You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For a Meniscus Tear, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) gives your knee the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.
Enhanced blood flow brings extra oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured 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 your healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops. With a King Brand® BFST® Meniscus Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Meniscus Tear at a surprisingly rapid rate.
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® Knee wrap for months after the pain is gone. Regular BFST® treatments will help your tissue get stronger and will protect your knee 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.
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 Meniscus Tear.
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. 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment, follow with another BFST® 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.

Unique XC RigiGel® 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, 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 pack. The temperature balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
These gel packs have 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. XC gel packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your knee or away from your knee since they are not side specific.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
The 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 a torn 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 as a result of a soft tissue injury. The ColdCure® wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries.
While most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury, 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 flexibiity and cold capacity. In terms of flex and form they feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do from the freezer.
Each ColdCure® Knee Wrap comes with 3 large gel packs that contain 10x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of your knee. This means your injured Meniscus and the area around it will receive a targeted, consistent cold treatment every time. When stored in the freezer, our XC gel 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® Knee gel pack is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. Both the wrap and the gel pack are 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. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a Meniscus Tear treatment device.
Always the right temperature
Gel stays in place
Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
The BFST® Knee Wrap is an FDA Registered Class II medical device. Class II 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 your knee 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 settings, so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your Meniscus Tear heals. During your first treatment, your Meniscus and the area around it 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.
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 Knee BFST® device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the entire surface of your knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the Meniscus area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that guarantee a perfect fit. The design allows for easy wrapping of 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 injured knee. The device disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so you are free to move about your home when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort.
