Piriformis Syndrome Treatment
Professional Treatment of the Root Cause
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:
Piriformis Syndrome is cased by the deterioration or damage of the piriformis muscle. When you heal the damaged muscle, you are treating the root cause of the problem.
Rapid Recovery for Piriformis Muscles
Piriforms syndrome often causes severely reduced motion, tingling, numbness, and pain. You may have difficulty climbing stairs, crouching down low, walking or even standing. We know you want to get rid of the pain and regain the full movement of your body. And we know that you want to do this as quickly and completely as possible. BFST® and ColdCure® Back/Hip Wraps are home medical devices designed to heal this type of injury. If you heal the underlying muscle - if you fix the root cause - the problem will be gone for good!
The Ultimate Solution:
If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.
Wear a ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap as much as possible to relieve your pain and reduce the inflammation.
Use the BFST® Back/Hip Wrap first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help the muscle heal.
Wear KB Support Tape during any physical activity to help protect and support your Piriformis Muscle and surrounding tissue.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You can heal your piriformis muscle and regain your mobility. All you need is the right treatment. You need to rest your injury and stimulate healthy blood flow. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to your back and hip. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissues. Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately, an injured piriformis at rest often has very restricted blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a lengthened recovery time. BFST® Wraps are the ideal solution. They're designed to speed up the healing process while you're at rest. This means you can receive the additional blood flow you need to heal and avoid re-injury at the same time.
Dealing With Pain
Piriformis Syndrome is often extremely painful and debilitating, causing us to reach for painkillers as a quick fix. The reality is that analgesics and NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen 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 sometimes used to address the symptoms of Piriformis Syndrome but they don't treat the condition itself and can put you at a very high risk of further injury.
ColdCure® Hip Wraps Suck the Pain Away Quickly!
Avoid the dangers of painkillers. King Brand ColdCure® Wraps are much safer and more effective than painkillers. They work faster. As soon as you put the ColdCure® Wrap on, you will feel the cool, soothing relief. With painkillers, you have to wait 20 minutes before they start working. ColdCure® is specially designed for the hip, so it does an incredible job of targeting the area to deliver instant pain relief. There are no dangerous drugs, you can use them as much as you like, they are completely safe, they reduce swelling (which is what triggers your pain), they are very powerful - more powerful than pain killers. They simply work great!
Limit Painkillers to Times of Rest
Painkillers mask the pain, making it easy to reinjur yourself. Without fail pain killers cause people to overstress and further aggravate their Piriformis Muscle, making their Piriformis Syndrome worse. Yes, sometimes we need relief from the pain, so if you have to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you are resting like when you go to bed at night. Using painkillers when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage. If you are starting your day with pills for the pain you are likely to make your condition worse through the day. Respect the pain. It is there to warn you. It is there to guide you.
Your products are amazing and have done tremendous healing for me. I tell everyone I come across who has a need for one of your products about it and direct them to your website. I know several people who have bought multiple pieces and are as pleased as I am.
Start with the ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap to relieve the pain and reduce any swelling and inflammation. It is an elasticized wrap with special reusable ice packs that you chill in the freezer and swap out as you need. It was specailly designed for the hip so it fits perfectly and works even better. Use the ColdCure® Wrap as long as you like and as often as you like for as long as it is needed. Anytime you feel the pain, suck that pain right out of your body with a ColdCure® treatment.
The BFST® Back/Hip Wrap is a special medical device that you wrap around your hip, plug into the wall and relax for about 20 minutes while it goes through the treatment cycle. The BFST® Wrap will promote blood flow to the injured area, deep below the skin, to help heal the underlying problem. It is absolutely painless. Other than you might hear a slight buzzing or humming from the device, there is no shocking or twitching or anything uncomfortable. You turn it on and it just does it's thing. It actually feels quite soothing. You might feel a little bit of tingling as the blood flow is stimulated but it feels good. The unit warms up a little bit over the treatment area too which some people also like. Most importantly you will give yourself 1 treatment first thing in the morning before you start your day. That's a must! You will also want to give yourself one treatment before bed. If you can space out one or 2 more treatments through your day, that's great. The beneficial effects of each treatment last for about 4 hours so 4 treatments spread through the day is ideal. More than that doesn't really add much so there's no need to get carried away!
Every day you should give yourself BFST treatments. This will help the underlying muscle heal. You will likely feel improvement by the end of the first week. Most people continue for several weeks to really fix the problem. Remember, when the pain is gone, you're getting better but you're not yet healed! Even when you feel better, please continue treatments for several more weeks to continue to help heal the underly problem. If you stop too soon, you are likely just to have the problem return. Many people keep giving themselves the morning treatment every day for years after the problem is gone because it just makes them feel better and it prevents the problem from returning. Whenver you feel pain though and want relief, grab your Coldcure and get feeling better right away :)

ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the pain and swelling that comes with Piriformis Syndrome, nothing works better than cold and compression.
ColdCure® Wraps were designed to address the need for a cold compression device that does not cause cold burns. Our gel packs pose no threat of freezing your skin or underlying tissue. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice, which can cause the skin to freeze, leading to permanent damage. ColdCure® gel packs are completely safe to use for extended treatment durations, meaning faster relief of pain and swelling. Our ColdCure® technology is a huge improvement on regular ice packs.
The ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap is made entirely of very soft, stretchy material. It comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible. Unlike gooey gel that moves around inside the pack, our gel stays in place. It conforms to your buttock area for an even, consistent treatment every time. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can have the other two charging in the freezer to keep your therapy going. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, for as long as you need the relief.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices help improve circulation.
The BFST® Back/Hip Wrap is designed to improve circulation in and around your Piriformis Muscle. This is exactly what you need to regain proper movement of your hip joint. When you're at rest, blood flow to the affected area is severely reduced. By using the BFST® Wrap, you're stimulating the optimal blood flow your hip needs to keep moving, decreasing the regularity of your Piriformis Syndrome symptoms.
BFST® treatments are very similar to Ultrasound Therapy. You know Ultrasound - you go to a therapist 3 times per week to get treated - what a pain! BFST® treatments are about 10x as powerful as ultrasound! It has been designed to be a better, more effect treatment than ultrasound. And instead of 3 treatments per week you can give yourself 4 treatments each day! No wonder the results are so good! BFST does not hurt and except for a little warming, you hardly feel the treatment.
The BFST® Wrap is incredibly easy to use. All you have to do is apply the wrap around the affected area of your buttocks, plug the device in, turn the power on, and sit back and relax. The BFST® Wrap is designed to be used while you're at rest, so try to do treatments while you catch up on activities like reading, watching TV and surfing the internet. The device automatically shuts off after your 20 minute session. Since the effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, it's best to do a treatment about every 4 hours or so.
The BFST and ColdCure products fit most people. They work for waists as small as 22" and up to 54" right out of the box. We all come in different shapes and sizes so there is an Accessory Strap which can provide a more customized fit for those who need it. The strap provides up to 11+ inches of extension so you can use as much or as little extension as you need. and this strap will allow you to increase the size of your Back Wrap to achieve the best possible fit and treatment. If you're considering an accessory strap, here's some good news. BFST is designed for deep tissue treatment. The energy is absorbed by muscles and tendons but goes through fat tissue like it isn't even there. Most other treatments including Ultrasound are absorbed much more by surface layer tissues so with BFST you've got the best treatment option for your particular needs.
I just wanted to thank you for your courtesy, your helpfulness, your professionalism. You don't get customer service like that as much as you would like to. You're the best asset. Sometimes in a situation, you don't know the questions to ask, you don't know what you need. You made sure you told me what would help without me asking, you put my mind at ease.
This Rechargeable Battery Pack is designed to make your BFST® Wrap completely mobile. It attaches anywhere on your wrap by using the Velcro patch included, and can be used for around 10-20 treatments, depending on what level you're on. That's several days of use on just one charge! This means you can do your treatments wherever you go!, all without being plugged in. Use it wherever the day takes you.
The Battery Pack is easily charged using your BFST® power supply. The indicator lights on the Battery let you know when it needs to be charged again. There's a lot of power in there so it takes 4+ hours to achieve a full charge when the Battery is nearly at 0. But from one full charge you'll get a lot of use!
The Rechargeable Battery Pack is specifically designed to work with your BFST® Wrap. Your BFST® Wrap comes with the components you need for treatments and to charge the Battery. For Airline travel the Battery Pack must travel in your carry-on or in the main cabin, not in checked luggage. Of course, you can use your BFST while you're on the plane!

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure®
BFST® for Rapid Healing ColdCure® for Pain & Swelling
Combination Therapy means using the right product at the right time. This is much more effective than just using one product at all times because each product addresses a specific issue. You have ColdCure® to relieve your pain and swelling, BFST® to promote blood flow and accelerate healing, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Piriformis Syndrome.
When to Use the BFST® Wrap
The BFST® Wrap is designed to accelerate healing. Use the BFST® Wrap when you have not just strained the injury, and pain is at a minimum. The most important treatments are first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed. The treatment first thing in the morning will act as a "warm-up" for your back. The value of this can't be understated. The morning treatment stimulates blood flow in the muscle and prevents further injury that can easily happen when you're stiff from a night of sleep. The treatment right before bed will help your back heal as you sleep.
Start your BFST® treatments on Level 1. Do not start on a higher setting. More does not mean better. Using too high of a setting causses blood to pool at the surface of your skin and that blocks the energy from getting to the injury. Over many weeks you may move up to the next setting. The instructions will expalin this and our treatment advisors are only a call away.
So, there's the treatment in the morning and the one at night. Try to get in a couple extra treatments through the day if you can, particularly before any type of physical activity that puts a strain on your back (lifting, reaching, etc). Use BFST before activity, not after.
If you have been active and you may have strained your priformis, that is NOT the time to do BFST. That is when you use ColdCure
When to Use the ColdCure® Wrap
The ColdCure® is designed to relieve pain, swelling and inflammation. Use the ColdCure® Wrap anytime you are experiencing significant pain. This could be immediately upon injury or during a flare-up. ColdCure® does an amazing job of relieving pain -- some of our customers have described ColdCure® as "sucking the pain" right out of their body. ColdCure® treatments help to reduce the inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue.
Do a ColdCure® treatment immediately after any significant physical activity. You may not have noticed it but there may be additional inflammation from re-injury. ColdCure treatments will attempt to minimize the damage.
There is no limit to how often or how many times you can use ColdCure. As long as you want more, use it more. You can keep swapping the extra gel packs from your freezer into the wrap as long as you like.The only restirction is to wait 30-45 minutes after your last ColdCure® treatment before following with a BFST® treatment. As well, after a BFST treatment, it is best to wait an additional hour before using ColdCure again unless you are feeling siginificant pain.
ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. They exceed all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries. When applied, these medical grade cold compression wraps will immediately reduce 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.
ColdCure® RigiGel® packs are much safer and more effective than ice and products that use gooey blue gel. Why? Because RigiGel® packs are like ice, but they stay at 32°F / 0°C. While they may start at about -4°F / -20°C straight from the freezer, after a few minutes they will go to 32°F / 0°C and stay at 32°F / 0°C for a long time. 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 -4°F / -20°C and rapidly go to 32°F / 0°C, but then they warm up quickly instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 32°F / 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 several minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. What most of these people probably don't realize is that there are serious dangers associated with ice. The truth is that 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.
XC Gel® packs contain 3x more gel per lb than ordinary packs. This means maximum coverage of the painful area. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 10x more cooling power than ordinary gel packs. This means faster, more effective relief of your pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power equals an overall better cold treatment.
ColdCure® Back/Hip gel packs are custom designed to conform to the affected area. This means you always get an even distribution of cooling power over your Piriformis Muscle. We don't just use one generic gel pack with all of our wraps. All of our gel packs are specially designed for a specific part of the body. Every part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why all of our gel packs are uniquely shaped too. This product has been 100% designed to treat Piriformis Syndrome.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
Ordinary gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to a hot, swollen 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 means your Piriformis Muscle will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack, every time. The temperature-balancing power of these gel packs 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 body or away from your body since they're not side specific.
Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. They're designed, manufactured and tested to very high standards of quality, safety and performance.
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 levels of EMR energy envelop your Piriformis Muscle and the surrounding area, stimulating blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. This stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps have 3 different power settings, which you will move through gradually as your circulation improves. Everyone should start their treatments on Level 1. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up your healing time. You need to condition the body first.
During your first few treatments on Level 1, your buttock area may feel quite warm. This is because your circulation is poor at first. The more you use the device, the less warming sensation you will feel. This is good. As the warmth lessens from treatment to treatment, this is an indication that your circulation 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.
BFST® Wraps are not traditional heating pads. In fact, BFST® Wraps are far superior to traditional heating pads. BFST® Wraps stimulate additional blood flow in the area of injury, deep below the skin. This increase in blood flow helps to heal your soft tissue. Drug store heating pads can't do this - they're like frying pans. All a traditional heating pad will do is cause blood to pool at the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This doesn't do anything to heal your soft tissue. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is huge.
BFST devices were actually designed to be a better option to Ultrasound Treatments which are a type of diathermy. Diathermy is a fancy medical term which refers to stimulating blood flow in tissue beneath the surface of the skin. Ultrasound is actually dangerous, that's why you have to go to a therapist to get treatment. BFST is safe. That is why FDA allows it to be sold for home use. It is not only safer than Ultrasound, BFST is typically 10x more powerful than ultrasound and you can use it many times each day. We refer to the part of the BFST wrap that creates and sends the useful energy as the Energy Web®
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Back/Hip device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The Wrap molds the Energy Web® around your buttock to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over your Piriformis Muscle and the surrounding soft tissue. There are long, wide straps attached to the wrap that allow you to adjust the fit for your body shape.
Keep Doing BFST® Treatments
When you're recovering from Piriformis Syndrome, the pain ends long before you've fully recovered. In fact, the pain is usually gone once you're about 20-30% through the recovery process. The recovery 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 body is still recovering. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to regain proper movement of your hip joint. Doing regular BFST® treatments for months after the pain is gone is extremely beneficial. Do a BFST® treatment prior to any physical activity. This will act as a warm-up for your circulatory system.
My only regret is that I did not find your website and products sooner. I have been nursing a sports induced hip injury for 5 months and could not get any improvement until I started using the BSFT and Coldcure Wrap. Only after 2 weeks I am able to get back on the tennis courts with limited play but with continue treatments looking forward to full court mobility soon. The description for my type of injury matched what my MRI showed. Your website is very educational about soft tissue injuries and easy for anyone to understand. Thanks for your products and great website
The standard back/hip wrap in your cart is what you need for Piriformis Syndrome. A lot of our customers, though, really fall in love with these devices. They want more. They want to use them all over their body. We have products for specific body parts, but if you want mega coverage of your buttocks and the back of your legs, or anywhere else on your mody, we have really big versions of both ColdCure and BFST wraps.
The ColdCure® Large Body Wrap provides exactly that. It has a massive cold treatment area that's greater than 15"x15". This Wrap is amazing and can be strapped on, laid on or rested against while sitting on a couch or chair. The Large Body Wrap is like the Back/Hip Wrap, but much larger. It comes with 2 huge gel packs that offer amazing coverage and cooling power.
The Large Body Wrap is guaranteed to fit comfortably on anyone with a waist measuring between 22" and 44". For people whose waist measures above 44", we have extensions that can be attached to your Wrap to achieve a perfect fit (we recommend the purchase of 2 Accessory Straps for use with the Large Body Wrap).
We think what you have is fine, but keep these in mind for later when you want even bigger and better. Or drop one in your cart now. The link is for the ColdCure version. You can go to our shop to find the Large Body version of the BFST wrap.
