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. The Accessory Sling can help with this by immobilizing your shoulder and arm.
Do this and your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus can truly heal - finally.

Blood Flow is Essential for Healing
Stop suffering needlessly. Stop waiting for other treatments to work for months on end while you see no results. In order to heal quickly and completely, your injury needs rest and blood flow. You can stop the pain and speed the healing of your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus with the correct treatment. This treatment is called Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps bring high-quality, healthy blood flow to your injured tissue while you are at rest. This increase in blood flow actively works to heal your injury. Normally we would stimulate our blood flow by doing physical activity, but when we're injured, this can cause further injury. The BFST® Wrap allows you to rest and avoid re-injury while you get the additional blood flow your body needs to heal properly.
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.
When your shoulder is at rest, blood flow to your injury is impaired, making it hard for the healing process to move along. Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery, which is why using a BFST® Shoulder Wrap is so important. The BFST® Shoulder Wrap stimulates nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood through your shoulder to repair your damaged tissue and speed up the healing process.
BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. The effects of each 20 minute treatment last for up to 4 hours. For optimal results, spread your treatments out throughout the day. We recommend doing 3-4 treatments per day. Do one treatment first thing in the morning and another one in the afternoon. Do another treatment in the evening and one more before bed. Some people experience a slight warming sensation and/or a slight tingling sensation during treatment. This is a side effect of the increase in blood flow to the injured area.
Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery, which is why you need a reminder of the injury throughout your recovery. If you have a constant reminder of your injury, you're less likely to overdo it and re-injure yourself. When people forget how badly they've been injured they feel a false sense of ability and end up making their injury worse. Don't remove your BFST® Wrap or your Accessory Sling after your treatments. Continue wearing them between treatments to act as a reminder of your injury. This will also help to support and protect your injured shoulder.
Heal as Quickly as a Pro Athlete
Heal your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury as quickly as a pro athlete by following the same treatment plan they follow. When a professional athlete injures their shoulder, they are directed to rest their shoulder completely and supplement the healing process by stimulating blood flow many times each day. Regular BFST® treatments are a standard part of this therapy because the more we promote blood flow, the faster we will heal. This is why pro athletes are back to playing in a matter of days or weeks while regular patients with the same injuries take months or even years to heal. There's no reason why everyone shouldn't receive the same treatment as professional athletes. Add BFST® to your treatment regimen to heal as quickly and completely as the pros.
Dealing with Pain
Painkillers are BAD, Not Good
Painkillers only mask the pain of your injury. When you mask the pain, you're also getting rid of the reminder of your injury. This is bad. The reminder of your injury is important because without it, you risk overdoing it and making your shoulder injury even worse. If you need to take painkillers for your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury, try to limit them to times when you are resting. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active will only lead to re-injury and a longer recovery time.
Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing you to turn to painkillers for some relief. 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® Wraps are a safe and effective alternative to painkillers. The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap is custom designed for the unique shape of the shoulder. It does a superior job of relieving the pain, swelling and inflammation associated with Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries. Not only do these devices provide soothing relief of your symptoms, they also protect your shoulder from further injury. We recommend wearing the ColdCure® Wrap and the Accessory Sling between treatments to act as a reminder of your injury.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
Nothing alleviates the swelling and pain of Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries like cold and compression. ColdCure® Shoulder Wraps provide uniform and complete cold compression for the ultimate in relief.
The ColdCure® Wrap does not pose a risk of freezing your skin when you use gel packs charged in the fridge. This means you can wear the wrap for much longer periods of time than with other products. Longer treatments means faster relief of pain and swelling. The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap provides soothing, instant relief and relaxation as soon as you put it on. You can wear it at rest or on-the-go, any time you need to relieve the pain.
The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap is designed to conform to the unique shape of your shoulder. The 3 gel packs included with the Shoulder Wrap are firm yet flexible, so the formula inside never moves away from your painful injury, even under heavy pressure. The ColdCure® Wrap molds the gel pack around your shoulder to ensure your entire injury is covered. The gel packs are inserted inside the soft, comfortable wrap 1 at a time, so you can have the other 2 charging in the fridge or the freezer. Swap the gel packs out throughout the day to keep your therapy going for as long as you need it. There's no need to take a break between treatments if you're using a gel pack charged in the fridge.

NEW Accessory Sling to Immobilize Your Shoulder
Keeping your injured shoulder completely immobile is nearly impossible, but it's important to try if you want to avoid re-injury and a lengthened recovery time. The King Brand® Accessory Sling is the solution to this problem. Attach the Accessory Sling to your BFST® or ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap to limit movement of your arm and shoulder and prevent the painful movements that lead to re-injury. This will result in a much faster recovery time.
The Accessory Sling also does an incredible job of supporting your arm. Taking the weight of your arm off your injured shoulder is a huge relief and also contributes to re-injury prevention.
The Accessory Sling is made from the same soft, comfortable neoprene as our BFST® and ColdCure® Shoulder Wraps. The Accessory Sling is also incredibly easy to use and completely customizable. You can apply it anywhere on your Shoulder Wrap and you can wear it on your left or right arm. Being able to have your arm in a sling while you are also stimulating blood flow or doing cold therapy is a huge deal, and you can only find this kind of solution here.
Please note that the Accessory Sling cannot be used on its own or with any products other than the BFST® and ColdCure® Shoulder Wraps.
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 meet very high standards of quality, safety and performance. This is because they're FDA Registered Class II medical devices. BFST® Wraps comply with several different regulations and standards that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. While BFST® Wraps are high quality, medical grade devices, they are available to the public to buy and use at home, just like 'consumer goods' that aren't registered with the FDA.
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 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 come with a 3 level power controller. For optimal results, everyone should start their treatments on Level 1. The idea is to condition your body by slowly working your way through the levels. Proceeding to Level 2 or 3 right away will not speed up your healing time. When you first start your treatments on Level 1, 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.
Heating pads don't heal soft tissue injuries. BFST® Wraps do. Heating pads are far surpassed by BFST® Wraps in terms of therapeutic benefits. Heating pads heat the surface of the skin, bringing blood to the surface. 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 Shoulder BFST® device is inserted inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® around your entire shoulder so you get an even distribution of energy over your Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus. It covers the entire top and front of your shoulder, as well as part of the back of your shoulder and the upper part of your bicep. The wrap is easy to apply and adjust. The long, wide Velcro® straps attached to the wrap allow you to achieve the perfect fit. Wear the BFST® Wrap between treatments to provide comfortable support and protection for your shoulder.
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 ColdCure® Wrap is a medical grade product designed for use at home or on-the-go. As FDA Registered Class I devices, ColdCure® Wraps exceed all government and health agency requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries. The ColdCure® Wrap applies cold and compression to your shoulder, which immediately reduces the risk of damage that can result 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.
Many people use the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation) formula when treating a soft tissue injury, but most of these people aren't aware of the dangers that ice pose. 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 use the XC® gels 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.
XC® gel packs provide superior coverage and cooling power for your Supraspinatus or Infrapsinatus injury. They contain 10x more gel per lb than other products, meaning they target a much larger area. Despite the size of our gel packs, they're never bulky, so treatments are always comfortable. When stored in the freezer, XC® gel packs also have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products. This means faster relief of pain and swelling and less time spent swapping the gel packs in and out. Larger gel packs with more gel inside and more cooling power ultimately means more effective treatments.
The ColdCure® Shoulder gel packs are specially designed to conform to the shape of your shoulder. This means you get an even distribution of cooling power over your entire injury. The shoulder isn't an easy area to target, which is why our Shoulder gels have such a special design. Each body part is shaped differently, so it only makes sense for each body part to have it's own uniquely shaped gel packs. We don't use one generic gel pack shape. Every product has gel packs that are shaped to treat a specific area, because we want you to receive the absolute best cold therapy possible.
Superior Gel Formula with No Hot Spots
Our unique XC RigiGel® formula is superior to regular gel formulas. It distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the gel pack, so there's no hot spots like with other products. This means you get an evenly balanced cold temeperature during every treatment. It also means your Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus will receive the cooling power of the entire pack. The temperature balancing power of our XC® gel formula is unmatched.
XC® gel packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. They may be 2 different colors, but both sides have all the same benefits that our amazing XC RigiGel® formula has to offer. The gel packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your shoulder or away from your shoulder since they're not side specific.
