One Super Important Fact:
If you have a Shoulder Labrum Tear, you don't need to resort to invasive surgery. Most Shoulder Labrum "Repair" procedures actually involve cutting away torn sections of your tissue. Avoid surgery and heal your tissue with conservative treatment.
How To Heal Your Shoulder Labrum Tear
Your Shoulder Labrum Tear may be making daily tasks extremely difficult to perform due to pain and loss of function. The pain may even be disrupting your sleep at night. We know you want to relieve the pain and heal your Shoulder Labrum Tear as quickly as possible. We know you want to regain the strength in your shoulder so you can do all of your favorite activities without the pain. That's why we designed the ColdCure® and BFST® Shoulder Wraps.
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 Shoulder Labrum Tear from further damage.
Do a BFST® treatment first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help your Shoulder Labrum Tear heal.
Avoid re-straining your shoulder as much as possible. KB Support Tape can help with this. Giving your shoulder a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Shoulder Labrum Tear can truly heal - finally.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You don't have to wait. You can heal your Shoulder Labrum Tear without resorting to surgery. You simply need the right treatment. You need to rest your shoulder and stimulate high-quality blood flow. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to your shoulder tissue while you are at rest. This increase in blood flow works to improve your circulation. Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately, a shoulder with a Labrum Tear has very restricted blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, it can also lead to further injury. The BFST® Shoulder Wrap is your solution. BFST® treatments will work to heal your torn Labrum by promoting blood flow to the injured area. This allows you to rest and avoid re-injury while healing your shoulder at the same time.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices heal soft tissue.
The BFST® Shoulder Wrap stimulates blood flow through your shoulder while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, a damaged, torn Shoulder Labrum can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the high-quality, healthy blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your Shoulder Labrum to heal quickly and completely.
The BFST® Wrap is very easy to use. Simply put it on, plug it in, turn it on and let your blood flow start improving. Each treatment is 20 minutes and the effects of each treatment last for up to 4 hours. We recommend that you spread your treatments out over the course of your day for best results. An ideal treatment regimen would be one treatment first thing in the morning, another treatment in the afternoon, one 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. Without the reminder, you risk feeling a false sense of ability that could cause you to overdo it and make your Shoulder Labrum Tear worse. The reminder is what will help you move with care so you don't injure your shoulder further. That's why the BFST® Shoulder Wrap was designed to be worn between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the wrap and gently tighten the straps. This will provide light support and protection for your shoulder, as well as act as a reminder of your injury.
Dealing With Pain
Shoulder Labrum Tears can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing you to reach for painkillers for quick and easy relief. Analgesics and NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen are commonly used as painkillers, but the truth is that 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 put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Painkillers Are BAD, Not Good
All painkillers do is mask the pain. They don't do anything to treat the injury itself. Trust the pain. It's there for a reason. It's understandable that you may need to take painkillers from time to time. Just make sure you take them during times when you're at rest, such as when you're sleeping. Using them when you are active can lead to permanent damage.
Avoid the Dangers of Painkillers
ColdCure® Wraps are far superior to painkillers. They're much safer and more effective. The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap does an outstanding job of relieving the pain that comes with a Shoulder Labrum Tear. As soon as you put the ColdCure® Wrap on, you will feel the soothing, cool relief. With painkillers, you have to wait 20 minutes for the effects to kick in. Stop waiting and start relieving your pain with a ColdCure® Wrap.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
When it comes to relieving the pain that comes with a Shoulder Labrum Tear, 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 pain that comes with a Shoulder Labrum Tear. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap. Put it on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your shoulder.
The ColdCure® Shoulder 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, meaning it always stays in place. Unlike gooey blue gel that migrates to other areas of the pack, our gel won't flow away from your injury. It conforms to your shoulder 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, or as long as you need the relief.
Protect Your Shoulder 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 Labrum Tear worse. Apply KB Support Tape to your shoulder between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments. This will provide your tissue 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 your 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 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.
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 shoulder. 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 a Shoulder Labrum Tear, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for Shoulder Labrum Tears 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 shoulder, 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 diapers, toys and clothing. 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.
Accessory Sling to Immobilize Your Shoulder
Trying to keep your shoulder completely immobile is difficult, but it's critical if you want to avoid further damage to your Labrum. That's why we designed the Accessory Sling. Simply attach the Accessory Sling to your BFST® or ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap to limit the movement of your arm and shoulder.
The Accessory Sling does an outstanding job of taking the weight of your arm off your injured shoulder. Taking the tension off your shoulder is a huge relief, and also further helps to prevent re-injury.
The Accessory Sling is easy to use and totally customizable. You can wear it on your right arm or left arm, and the Velcro® will attach anywhere on your Shoulder Wrap. These unique products allow you to treat your shoulder with blood flow or cold therapy while you're wearing a Sling. No other products on the market have this valuable feature.
Please note that the Accessory Sling cannot be used on its own or with any products other than the BFST® and ColdCure® Shoulder Wraps.
3 Extension Straps Included
For a Customized Fit
Every Top Shoulder Wrap comes with 3 Extension Straps that you can attach to customize the fit of your wrap. This makes it easy to find the right fit for your unique body shape. Some people won't need much extension, while some people will need more, which is why we include a Small Strap, a Medium Strap and a Large Strap with every Top Shoulder Wrap.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure®
for Rapid Healing
for Pain & Swelling
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 Shoulder Labrum Tear.
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.
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 (lifting, reaching, 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. Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before doing a 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.
Any time you're not doing a BFST® or ColdCure® treatment, wear KB Support Tape on your shoulder. 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 it has been removed at the end of the day.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
As an FDA Registered Class II medical device, the BFST® Wrap meets very high standards of quality, safety and efficacy. In order to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments, the BFST® device complies with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards. Even though BFST® Wraps are high quality medical grade devices, they are still available to the public to buy and use at home, just like lower quality consumer goods.
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 shoulder and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your Shoulder Labrum Tear, accelerating the healing process.
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 Shoulder Labrum Tear heals . Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up the healing process. You need to condition the body first.
During your first treatments on Level 1, you may feel a slight warming sensation deep within your shoulder. This is because, at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, the better your circulation will become, and the less warmth 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 blood flow all the time, not just during treatments. This is the goal. When you feel almost no warmth during a treatment, it is time to move up to the next power level. Don't rush it though, more heat doesn't mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
BFST® Wraps are far more effective than heating pads. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your soft tissue by bringing healthy blood flow to your shoulder joint. Heating pads simply bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This does nothing to heal the damaged tissues below. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is significant.
The BFST® Shoulder device comes with the Energy Web® inserted inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the unique shape of your shoulder, for complete coverage of your Shoulder Labrum Tear. This ensures that there is an even distribution of energy over your entire shoulder. The Wrap comes with 3 Extension Straps (Small, Medium & Large) that allow you to customize the fit.
Complete the Recovery Process
When you're recovering from a Shoulder Labrum Tear, the pain ends long before your shoulder is healed. In fact, the pain is usually gone once you're 20-30% healed. The 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 Labrum Tear is still healing. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to complete the healing process. 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. You should also continue taping your shoulder to help prevent re-injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
As an FDA Registered Class I medical device, the ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in soft tissue injuries like Shoulder Labrum Tears. When applied, ColdCure® Wraps 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 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. 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.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the correct method to use when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that ice can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your skin and 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.
The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap comes with 3 large gel packs that contain 10x more gel per lb than other products. When stored in the freezer, our gel packs also have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products, for faster relief of your pain. More cooling power also means longer treatment times without having to get up and switch the packs as often. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus maximum cooling power equals an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Shoulder gel packs are custom designed to mold to the shape of your shoulder. This means you will receive an even distribution of cooling power over your Labrum Tear. Every one of our gel packs is specially designed for a specific body part. We don't just use one generic gel pack shape with all of our wraps. Each part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why each one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. This product has 100% been designed to treat a Shoulder Labrum Tear.
XC RigiGel® Means No Hot Spots!
While blue gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots, our unique XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the entire gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to a Shoulder Labrum Tear, 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 shoulder will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack, every time.
XC Gel® packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides have all the same benefits that our innovative XC RigiGel® formula has to offer. XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the pack with the white side facing towards your shoulder or away from your shoulder since they're not side specific.
