Heal Your TFCC with BFST

Rapid Recovery For Your Triangular Fibrocartilage Injury


Injuries in the Triangular Fibrocartilage Complex (TFCC Injuries) occur on the side of the wrist, below the pinky finger. TFCC Injuries are usually caused by a fall onto an outstretched hand or from bending the wrist too far backwards. However, they can also be caused by degeneration over time. The most common symptom of a TFCC injury is severe pain, making it difficult to bend or straighten the wrist. Since the TFCC is used to move the wrist in several different directions, it's extremely vulnerable to re-injury. Thankfully, King Brand® Healthcare has the tools that will stop the pain, speed the healing and help protect your TFCC from Injury. These tools are the BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps as well as our KB Support Tape.


Surgery to help fix your TFCC injury should only be considered as a last resort. If you do undergo surgery, use our ColdCure® and BFST® Wrist Wraps to help 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 wrist 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.
  • Protect your injury as much as possible. Using KB Support Tape will help with this. Giving your wrist a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.

Do this and your Triangular Fibrocartilage Tear can truly heal - finally.


The Treatment Process


BFST Wrist Wrap

If you want to heal your Triangular Fibrocartilage Injury as quickly as possible and return to your regular activities, use the ColdCure® and BFST® Wrist Wraps. Start with the ColdCure® Wrap first. Regular ColdCure® treatments will relieve the pain and inflammation of your Triangular Fibrocartilage Injury. Removing swelling and inflammation with the ColdCure® Wrap will prepare your TFCC for the increased bloodflow delivered from the BFST®. Once you start using your BFST®, the ColdCure® treatments should only be used on an "as needed" basis. Any time that you're active and you notice an increase in pain is a good time to slow down and use the ColdCure® Wrist Wrap to tackle your inflammation and swelling. ColdCure® treatments will also help reduce your pain.


Once your pain and swelling is gone, you can start doing BFST® treatments. The BFST® Wrist Wrap will promote blood flow to the area of your injury, helping to repair your damaged tissues. Treatments are simple and easy: plug it in, turn it on and rest. Each treatment is only 20 minutes and the effects will last up to 4 hours, so even when your treatment is over, your injury is still receiving the benefits afterwards. Your two most important treatments are first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed. This gives you a great start to your morning and will help you rest well at night. Throughout the rest of the day, fitting one or two more treatments into your schedule will give you optimal blood flow all day long.


Protect your injury with extra support and protection by wearing KB Support Tape any time you're active between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments. Taping your Triangular Fibrocartilage Injury is going to have a surprisingly good impact on what you can accomplish throughout the day. Always remember to tape your wrist before any activity to help avoid re-injury.





Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing


King Brand Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy Action With BFST

You've finally found it. This is the treatment that you need in order to treat your Triangular Fibrocartilage Injury and make sure the pain doesn't return. You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For a TFCC Injury, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) gives your wrist the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely. Stop wasting your time and money on treatments that don't give you any lasting results. You can heal your Wrist with the BFST® today.


Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately when your Wrist is injured, blood flow to the area is greatly reduced. BFST® Wraps bring extra oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured wrist at rest often has restricted blood flow, and the healing process inevitably slows down. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can also lead to further injury. The BFST® Wrist Wrap solves the problem by allowing your injury to rest while receiving the blood flow that you need in order to heal quickly and completely.



BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.

BFST® Devices heal soft tissue injuries.


BFST® stimulates blood flow through your injured wrist while you are at rest. This is very important, because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed wrist can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the high-quality, healthy blood flow that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your Triangular Fibrocartilage Injury to heal properly and quickly.


Does it pulse or vibrate? BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in the treatment area as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. For optimal results, you should try to do a BFST® treatment every 4 hours. An ideal treatment regimen would be doing one treatment first thing in the morning, one in the afternoon, one in the evening, and the last treatment of the day right before bed. Since you'll be at rest, BFST® treatments are a good time to catch up on activities such as reading, watching TV and surfing the internet.Keep in mind that your two most important treatments, are first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed. This will ensure that you have a great start to your day, and lots of healing throughout the night while you rest.

Almost as important as stimulating blood flow is the reminder of your injury. This is what helps you move with care to avoid further injury. Without the reminder, you risk feeling a false sense of ability that can lead to re-injury. And avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why we always recommend during activity that you apply KB Support Tape. Not only will this provide you with support and protection, it serves as a reminder of your injury.


Dealing With Pain


TFCC Treatment Without Drugs

Triangular Fibrocartilage Tears can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing us to reach for painkillers time and time again. 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.


Painkillers Are BAD, Not Good


Painkillers don't do anything to treat the injury itself. They only mask the pain, causing people to re-injure themselves and make their condition worse. If you need to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you're at rest. For instance, you can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.


Avoid the Dangers of Painkillers


ColdCure® Wraps are a safe, effective alternative to painkillers. The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap is custom designed to treat all types of wrist injuries and conditions. It does an amazing job of relieving pain and swelling without the negative aspects of painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps also work instantly, while painkillers take 20 minutes to kick in. As soon as you apply the ColdCure® Wrap to your wrist, you will feel the cool, soothing relief as it alleviates the pain.


ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling

ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.


When you are looking for lots of cold to reduce the pain and swelling that's commonly associated with a Triangular Fibrocartilage Injury, nothing works better than our cold compression wrap.


ColdCure® gel packs were specifically 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 tissues. This makes them much safer than other products that help to reduce your swelling and inflammation. ColdCure® gel packs are completely safe to use for extended treatment durations, meaning that you can now have faster relief of pain and swelling. Our ColdCure® technology is a major improvement to conventional ice packs.


King Brand Rigigel is flexible when Frozen King Brand Rigigel is flexible when Frozen

The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap comes with three swappable gel packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. Our gel is both firm yet flexible, unlike other gel formulas that are mushy and watery. This means the gel conforms to your wrist and doesn't flow away. It won't move, even under heavy pressure for long periods of time. It stays in place to relieve your pain and swelling, giving you a complete, even cold treatment every time. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you'll have the other two packs charging in the fridge or freezer to keep your therapy going for as long as you need it to.


Protect Your Wrist Between Treatments


The biggest key to success when dealing with any injury, is to protect your TFCC injury from re-injury. Re-injury slows down the healing process.


When you're not doing BFST® or ColdCure® treatments, your already damaged tissue becomes vulnerable to re-injury. You don't want to do any further damage to your fragile, healing tissue and make your condition even worse than it already is. Apply KB Support Tape to your Triangular Fibrocartilage Tear between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments to provide your wrist with ongoing support and protection.


Our skin is much more soft and elastic than the tissue underneath. When you move your wrist, your skin and tissue move with it, and this movement puts you at risk of re-injury. You need to limit the movement of your skin as much as possible to protect your tissue from re-injury. When you apply KB Support Tape to your wrist, it makes the skin over your injury much more rigid than usual. This rigidity helps reduce the movement of your skin and tissue, preventing further damage and strain.


KB Support Tape - Use All Day During Work & Play


KB Support Tape provides compression that's lightweight and comfortable, without getting in the way of your daily activities. This allows you to relieve your swelling throughout the day, while also preventing re-injury.


Choose from 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll, as well as 4 different colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your individual style.


De Quervains Tape Treatment

The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are fast, easy and convenient. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can just apply and go! Every 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 injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.


We used 2 different colors of KB Support Tape in the above image to better illustrate how the Tape is applied for a TFCC injury. You do not need 2 different colors of KB Support Tape in order to achieve this application.


While we found the above application to be effective for Triangular Fibrocartilage injuries, we encourage you to experiment with different applications to find the best one for you. Everyone is different and everyone has a different experience with their injury. Apply the tape where your injury is. If you feel pain in a specific area, apply the tape there.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape


BFST® for Rapid Healing
ColdCure® for Pain & Swelling
KB Tape to Prevent Re-Injury

Combination Therapy means combining ColdCure® and BFST® 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®, as well as the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Triangular Fibrocartilage Tear.

Combination Therapy is Colcure and BFST

Step 1


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.


Step 2


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 per day, spread throughout the day. During the day, do a BFST® treatment every 4 hours or before any type of physical activity. This can be anything that puts a strain on the injured area (bending motions, twisting motions, etc). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow.


Step 3


Do a ColdCure® treatment any time you experience a pain flare-up or after 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.


Step 4


Any time you're not doing a ColdCure® or BFST® treatment, wear KB Support Tape on your wrist. 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 the Tape has been removed at the end of the day.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing




Heal your Rotator Cuff Injury fast

BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. BFST® devices are designed and tested to extremely high safety, quality and efficacy standards. Consumer grade products aren't. Manufacturers of consumer goods aren't held accountable by the FDA like manufacturers of medical devices are.


The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in the injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe EMR energy envelops your wrist and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.


BFST Power Controller

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 they heal. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up your healing time. You need to condition the body first.


During your first treatments on Level 1, you may feel a slight warming sensation deep in your wrist. 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 have more therapeutic benefits than heating pads. First of all, BFST® Wraps can actually heal soft tissue injuries, unlike heating pads. BFST® treatments bring additional blood flow to the area of your injury, deep below the skin. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissues. Heating pads can't do this. All they do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is huge.


The Energy Web® of the BFST® Wrist device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® around your entire wrist to ensure that your injury receives an even distribution of energy. The Velcro® straps make it easy to adjust the fit of the wrap, no matter what size your wrist is. You don't need to remove the BFST® Wrap after your treatment ends. Unplug the device and keep wearing it to act as a reminder of your injury.


Complete the Healing Process


You need to keep doing BFST® treatments even after your pain is gone, because the pain ends long before you've finished healing. The entire 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 wrist is still healing. This means you need to continue doing BFST® treatments in order to complete the healing process. Doing regular BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone is extremely beneficial. Do a BFST® treatment prior to any physical activity to warm up your circulatory system. You should also continue to tape your wrist in order to prevent re-injury.


Medical Function - ColdCure® - Extreme Pain Relief


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, 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 such as Triangular Fibrocartilage Tears.


Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation

Many people follow the RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - formula when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that ice can be too cold to effectively relieve pain and swelling. It can also be very dangerous. Ice (and other freezer-based substitutes) 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.


We recommend that you start by charging your XC® gel packs in the fridge. However, you can also charge them in the freezer and use them as freezer packs. They still retain their ability to mold to your body, even at the coldest freezer temperatures.


Coldcure holds more gel than other gels

XC® gel packs provide your injured wrist with superior coverage and cooling power. They contain 3x more gel per lb than other products, for maximum coverage of your injury. Despite their size, XC® gel packs are never bulky, so your treatments are always comfortable. When stored in the freezer, our gel packs have 10x more cooling power per lb than other products. This means longer treatments and faster relief of pain and swelling. More coverage and cooling power means an overall better, more effective treatment.


Coldcure gel wrap coverage zone

ColdCure® Wrist gel packs are specifically designed to conform to the shape of your wrist. They wrap all the way around your wrist to ensure there is an even distribution of cooling power over your entire injury. We don't use one generic gel pack for all of our wraps. All of our gel packs are specially designed for the shape of the specific body part you're treating. Every body part is uniquely shaped, which is why our gel packs are uniquely shaped too. The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap has 100% been designed to treat Triangular Fibrocartilage Tears.


Unique XC RigiGel® Formula


Coldcure Eliminates Hotspots

While regular gel packs have hot and cold spots, our gel packs always have an evenly balanced cold temperature. Our unique XC RigiGel® formula eliminates hot spots by distributing the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. This means your wrist will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack during every treatment. The amazing temperature-balancing power of XC RigiGel® can only be found in a ColdCure® Wrap!


XC® gel packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will provide you with all the same benefits that our outstanding XC RigiGel® formula has to offer. XC® gel packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your wrist or away from your wrist since they're not side specific.

The King Brand® products shown are FDA Registered medical devices. That is not all. They are also registered with Health Canada which means they get twice as much review.


FDA and Health Canada Registration does not mean that we fill out a form to become Registered. Our claims are quite significant, and because of these claims the government agencies visit for week-long inspections to ensure that the end user is always receiving the safest effective medical devices we can offer. With two different countries of regulators this means our products get twice the oversight, ensuring exceptional quality and performance.


It is not required but we are also ISO-13485 compliant and registered. This enforces standards are established by the International Standards Organization for global manufacturers of medical devices. This means more on-site week long audits every year ensuring our quality and products meet strict international standards.


It is not required by any regulator, but we use only the safest materials in our products. ISO-10993 regulation ensures that our products are made from higher quality materials than most baby products, including diapers. This is the highest bio-compatibility safety standard in the world. This is the highest hospital grade - think Intensive Care and Operating Rooms. Our materials go through ISO-10993 testing to ensure they are safe for you. No consumer products are produced to this high standard.


King Brand products are, in fact, hospital grade through and through. ISO-60601 is the International Standard for Medical Device safety from an electrical standpoint. In spite of the BFST® being an electrical device, BFST® can be used in hospital emergency rooms and operating rooms without affecting other equipment. You can use any medical device with a BFST® and neither device will know the other one is there. This is a very tough standard to meet, but we do it and you benefit.


King Brand products meet over 20 different safety and quality standards that are not required even for medical devices and FDA registration. If we think there is anything that can be done to make our products safer and more effective, we have done it.
