One Super Important Fact:
Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries are generally caused by repetitive overhead motions. If you don't stop doing the activity that caused your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury, it will only get worse. If you want to heal as quickly and completely as possible, rest your shoulder and use the BFST® and ColdCure® Shoulder Wraps.
Heal in Weeks Instead of Months
It happens all the time. A professional athlete damages the Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus in their shoulder. It's the exact same injury thousands of people get, yet the professional athlete is competing again in a matter of days or weeks while most people suffer for months on end. How can that be? The difference is that the general public take painkillers and just rest while the pro athlete takes more action. Professional athletes are using tools to help themselves heal quickly. And the reality is that anyone with a Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury can have that treatment too. King Brand® makes those tools. We provide professional athletes with these tools, and we can provide them to you as well.
The Treatment Process
If you want to heal your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury as quickly as possible and return to your regular routine, use the ColdCure® and BFST® Shoulder Wraps. Start with the ColdCure® Wrap first. ColdCure® treatments will work to relieve the pain and swelling in your shoulder. This will take 2 to 10 days depending on the severity of your condition.
Once your swelling is gone, you can start using the BFST® Wrap. BFST® treatments will work to stimulate blood flow in the injured tissue deep below your skin. This increase in blood flow helps to speed up the healing process. The BFST® Wrap doesn't just mask the pain, it promotes healing of your underlying tissue. It is simple to use and very effective.
It's also important to understand that rest is required in order to heal a Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury. Avoid any activities that could lead to further injury, as this will only lengthen your recovery time and undo any healing you've done. Try to rest your shoulder as much as possible.
Surgery for a Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury should only be considered as a last resort. If you do have to undergo surgery to repair your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus, use our BFST® and ColdCure® Shoulder Wraps to accelerate the healing process post-surgery.
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 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. Resting your shoulder is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus can truly heal - Finally.

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 Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) gives your shoulder the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.
BFST® brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured shoulder at rest often has restricted blood flow, which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity promotes 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® Shoulder Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your injured shoulder while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury at a surprisingly rapid rate.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices are NOT wraps or braces designed to simply lessen joint strain.
The BFST® Shoulder Wrap stimulates blood flow through your injured Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed shoulder 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 injured 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 shoulder as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The effects last up to 4 hours, which means long after your 20 minute treatment, the blood keeps flowing and your shoulder keeps healing. The more you do it, the longer it lasts and the healthier your shoulder 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 shoulder from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening your recovery time. Patients enjoy the support BFST® Wraps provide - 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
Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can really recover from Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries. When a professional athletes injure their shoulder, they have explicit instructions to rest their injured shoulder 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 Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries faster than ever.
Dealing with Pain
Painkillers are BAD, Not Good
Painkillers mask the pain. Without fail this causes people to overstress and re-injure their shoulder. This only makes their situation 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 at rest. 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® Wrap. The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap is specially designed to treat the pain associated with Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries. It also does a superior job of relieving swelling and inflammation in the area of injury. This innovative wrap is incredibly soothing and protects your shoulder from further injury. The painkilling element is actually very powerful and it works instantly - there's no 20 minute wait like with pills.
Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries can be 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 that comes with Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries, 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 and swelling that comes with Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries. 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.
ColdCure® Shoulder Wraps are made entirely of very stretchy material. They wrap around the top and down the back of your shoulder, applying a gentle pressure over the entire area. The wrap comes with swappable cold packs of a very special design. They are soft and flexible and mold perfectly to the shape of your shoulder, yet the gel inside them won't move out of place. Each ColdCure® Shoulder 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.
Included with Your Shoulder Wrap
Every BFST® and ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap comes with an extra strap you can attach to the wrap to restrict movement of your shoulder. This helps to prevent further injury to your Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus. When used with the ColdCure® Wrap, the Accessory Strap also provides additional compression, and this means maximum pain and swelling relief.
To restrict movement of your shoulder, attach the Accessory Strap to the area that's most painful when you move.
For more compression, attach the Accessory Strap to the area of your shoulder where you feel the most pain.
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 Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury.
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 (reaching, lifting, 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 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.
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 and incredibly safe EMR energy envelops your entire shoulder and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps have 3 different settings, so you can continue to increase the power of your treatments as your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus heals. During your first treatment, your shoulder may 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 shoulder 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 doesn't 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 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.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Shoulder Wrap is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around your shoulder to ensure there is an even distribution of energy over your Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus. 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 shoulder. The device disconnects easily at the wrap from the power supply and controller so you are free to move around 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 Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus may only be 20% or 30% healed. If you want your shoulder 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 prevent 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 shoulder immediately reduces the risk of 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.
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.
Each ColdCure® Wrap comes with 3 gel packs that contain 10x more gel per lb than other packs, for maximum coverage of your Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus. 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 shoulder. This all results in an overall colder and more effective treatment.
The ColdCure® Shoulder gel pack is inserted inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. 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 over the top and down the back of your shoulder 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 Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus treatment device.
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 a Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus 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 shoulder 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 colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will give you all the same benefits that our amazing XC RigiGel® has to offer! The gel pack can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your shoulder or away from your shoulder since the gel pack is not side specific.
