Rapid Healing for Triathlon Injuries
Being a triathlete is hard on many areas of your body due to the combination of swimming, cycling and running. The intensity required in training and competing means that overtraining and overuse injuries are especially common in triathletes. While resting your injury is advised in order to prevent further damage, rest alone won't result in a speedy recovery. If you want to heal faster so you can get back to training and competing in a reduced amount of time, you need the same tools that the professionals use. You need our ColdCure® and BFST® medical devices.
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 injury from further damage.
- Do a BFST® treatment before you train or do any type of physical activity. We recommend that you do 3-4 BFST® treatments per day. This will help you heal quickly.
- Avoid re-straining your injury by using KB Support Tape. This is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Triathlon injury can truly heal - finally.
The Treatment Process
Use our ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps to heal your Triathlon injury as quickly and completely as possible. Start with the ColdCure® Wrap first. ColdCure® treatments will relieve the pain and inflammation of your injury. Do regular ColdCure® treatments throughout the day until your pain and swelling are under control. This will take 2-10 days depending on the severity of your injury.
Once your pain and swelling has subsided, you can start using the BFST® Wrap. BFST® treatments promote blood flow to the area of your injury, deep below the skin. This works to heal your damaged tissues. Do a BFST® before your events or any time you exercise as this will help prevent the risk of re-injury. The effects of each 20 minute treatment last for up to 4 hours, meaning that you're still receiving the healing benefits of optimum blood flow after your treatment has ended.
For added support and protection while you compete, apply KB Support Tape to the injured area. This lightweight, comfortable tape can be worn during all of your daily activities and it won't get in the way or restrict your movement.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You can heal your Triathlon injury. Stop wasting your time on treatments that don't work. You can heal your injury much more quickly with the correct treatment. When it comes to soft tissue injuries, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) provides your injury with the blood flow it needs to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to your injury. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your injury. Healthy, high-quality blood flow is essential for a fast recovery. However, an injury at rest often has very limited blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, this can cause re-injury and a worsened condition. BFST® Wraps are the solution to this problem. They're designed to speed up the healing process while you're at rest. This means you're getting the additional blood flow your damaged tissue needs to heal while avoiding re-injury at the same time.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® Devices heal soft tissue injuries.
The BFST® Wrap stimulates blood flow through the injured area while you're at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed injury can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It's the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your Triathlon injury to heal as quickly as possible.
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. Since you'll be at rest during your BFST® treatments, they're a great time to catch up on activities such as reading, watching TV and surfing the internet. An ideal treatment regimen is 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. This is what helps you move with care and 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 the BFST® Wrap was designed to be worn between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the device and tighten the wrap to your body. This will provide light support and protection for your injury.
Dealing With Pain
Triathlon injuries can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing you 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, which gets rid of the reminder and causes people to re-injure themselves and make their injury even worse, resulting in a much longer recovery time. If you need to take painkillers, try to limit their use to times when you are 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. They do an amazing job of relieving the pain and swelling associated with Triathlon injuries, without any of the risks associated with painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps also work much faster than painkillers, which take 20 minutes to kick in. As soon as you apply the ColdCure® Wrap to your injury, you will feel the cool, soothing relief as it absorbs the pain and tension.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Triathlon injuries, nothing works better than our cold compression wrap.
ColdCure® Wraps were designed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin and underlying tissue. Unlike other products that use ice and gooey blue gel, our gel packs pose no threat of 'cold burns' or permanent tissue damage. This means 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.
ColdCure® Wraps are made entirely of very soft, stretchy material. They come with swappable cold packs that contain our special XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible, meaning it always stays in place. It conforms perfectly to your body and won't flow away from your injury. It doesn't move, even under heavy pressure for long periods of 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.
Protect Your Injury Between Treatments
When you're not doing treatments with your ColdCure® or BFST® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your injury worse. Apply KB Support Tape to the injured area between treatments. This will help you avoid re-injury and provide the injured area with added protection and support.
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 the 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 compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. It also provides your injury with support and protection to prevent further tissue damage. This stretchy, breathable tape can be applied to any soft tissue injury you've sustained in swimming, cycling or running.
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 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 knee injury, just one of the many injuries that can be sustained during a Triathlon. 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 knee injuries, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for your given injury 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 knee (or other body part), 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, clothing and toys. Don't let the big brand tapes fool you. Most of them are made with highly toxic materials since 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.
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 injury may only be 20% or 30% healed. If you want your injury to heal completely, you need to continue doing BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone. Do a BFST® treatment before any physical activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system. You should also continue to apply KB Support Tape to the injured area, as this will help prevent re-injury.
The most common swimming injury triathletes face is Swimmer's Shoulder. Lower back, knee, foot, ankle and wrist injuries are also seen, but are not nearly as common. While some instances of Swimmer's Shoulder are caused by improper form, most are just overuse injuries caused by the repetitive overhead motions performed when swimming. Swimmer's Shoulder doesn't describe an injury to one specific area of the shoulder. Rather, it's used as a catchall for tendon, ligament and muscle injuries in the shoulder. Swimmer's Shoulder is also known as impingement syndrome.
The injuries most often sustained by triathletes in cycling are to the lower back, hamstrings, knees (Patellar Tendonitis) and wrists/hands (Handlebar Palsy, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, de Quervain's Tenosynovitis). Hand and wrist injuries from cycling are usually caused by holding the handlebars of your bike too tightly or from the vibrations felt through the handlebars. Hamstring and knee injuries (or any other injuries in your legs) are likely caused by the heavy use of the legs in the sport. Back injuries sustained in cycling can be caused by improper seat height or poor posture. However, since many cyclists' legs are stronger than their upper bodies, back injuries can result from the strain this causes.
The most common injuries triathletes sustain in running are Runner's Knee (Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome), IT Band Syndrome, Jumper's Knee (Patellar Tendonitis), Shin Splints, Achilles Tendonitis, Ankle Sprains, Hip Flexor injuries, Plantar Fasciitis, Metatarsalgia and Meniscus injuries. Runner's Knee is the number one injury seen in runners. It's also often misdiagnosed as ITBS or Jumper's Knee. Runner's Knee occurs when the femoral groove (place where your kneecap rests on your thighbone) becomes irritated and inflamed, causing pain and weakness in the knee. Runner's Knee is usually caused by the general strain that running puts on your knees, but could also be due to an increase in training or mileage.
For Your Knee
ColdCure® Knee Wrap
Use our ColdCure® Knee Wrap if you have Runner's Knee, IT Band Syndrome, Jumper's Knee, a Meniscus injury, or any other Knee injury you've sustained in a Triathlon. It does an outstanding job of relieving your pain and swelling. The Knee Wrap is custom designed to target the sides of your knee, as well as above or below your kneecap.
BFST® Knee Wrap
Use our BFST® Knee Wrap to speed up the healing of your knee injury. The Knee Wrap will bring high-quality blood flow to the area of your injury to help heal the damaged tissues. This is exactly what your body needs to heal properly and quickly. The Knee Wrap has a unique U-shaped treatment area that will perfectly target the area of your injury.
For Your Back

Use our ColdCure® Back Wrap to relieve the pain and swelling of your back or hip injury. The Back Wrap is versatile because it can be worn on virtually any area of your back and hips. Just apply it to the painful area to target your injury. It does an outstanding job of absorbing all of your pain and tension.
BFST® Back Wrap
Use our BFST® Back Wrap to provide your injury with the healthy blood flow it needs to heal. It doesn't matter which area of your back is injured - you can wear the Back Wrap on your lower back, hips, mid-back or upper back. The Back Wrap is completely adjustable and has Velcro® straps attached that ensure a perfect fit.
Two Different Shoulder Wraps
We have two different Shoulder Wraps that target two different areas. The Top Shoulder Wrap is designed to target injuries in the top of the shoulder. The Side Shoulder Wrap is designed to target injuries in the side of the shoulder. Generally speaking, if you have a Delotid injury or Upper Bicep Tendonitis, you should use the Side Shoulder Wraps. If you happen to have a Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury, or a case of Frozen Shoulder, you should use the Top Shoulder Wraps. It all depends on what area you need to target. Rotator Cuff injuries are a little more tricky, as it depends on which part of the Rotator Cuff is injured. Pay attention to where the pain is. Is it closer to the "top" or the "side"? Take a look at the coverage zone image above to determine which wrap would better target your injury.
For the Top of Your Shoulder
ColdCure® Top Shoulder Wrap
Use our ColdCure® Top Shoulder Wrap to relieve the pain and inflammation of your top shoulder injury. They're designed to mold perfectly to the shape of the top of your shoulder. The treatment area covers your scapula, collar bone, rotator cuff and the top of your deltoid. This wrap is ideal for treating Rotator Cuff injuries, Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries and Frozen Shoulder.
BFST® Top Shoulder Wrap
Use our BFST® Top Shoulder Wrap to bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to the injured area in the top of your shoulder, deep beneath the skin. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal the damage in your ligaments, tendons and muscles. BFST® treatments not only work to heal you, they're also incredibly relaxing. Do 3-4 treatments per day, spread out throughout the day for best results.
For the Side of Your Shoulder
ColdCure® Side Shoulder Wrap
Use our ColdCure® Side Shoulder Wrap to relieve the pain and inflammation of your side shoulder injuries. They're designed to conform comfortably to the side of your shoulder to cover the entire injured area. ColdCure® treatments are the first step for treating Rotator Cuff injuries, Upper Bicep Tendonitis and Deltoid injuries.
BFST® Side Shoulder Wrap
Our BFST® Side Shoulder Wrap is custom designed for the side of the shoulder. It stimulates high-quality blood flow in the area of your injury, deep below the skin. This increase in blood flow works to heal your damaged tissues. The treatment area covers the deltoid, rotator cuff and the upper portion of your bicep.
For Your Leg
ColdCure® Leg Wrap
Use our ColdCure® Leg Wrap if you have Shin Splints, a Hamstring injury, a Calf injury, or any other Leg injury sustained during a Triathlon. The Leg Wrap is just as versatile as our Back Wrap because it can be applied to any area of the leg that you've injured. It also does an amazing job of relieving pain, swelling and inflammation.
BFST® Leg Wrap
Use the BFST® Leg Wrap to promote blood flow to your injury and speed up the healing process. The Leg Wrap was designed with versatility in mind. It can be applied to your calf, thighs, shins - anywhere on your leg. BFST® treatments will help to improve your circulation and repair your damaged tissues so you can get back to doing what you love.
For Your Wrist
ColdCure® Wrist Wrap
Use our ColdCure® Wrist Wrap to target and eliminate your pain and swelling. The Wrist Wrap is ideal for treating injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and De Quervain's Tenosynovitis, or any other wrist and hand injuries you've sustained during a Triathlon. The Wrist Wrap can be applied around the top and underside of your wrist, around your fingers, further down your forearm, etc.
BFST® Wrist Wrap
Use the BFST® Wrist Wrap to bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to your injured tendons. This increase in blood flow will create an ideal environment for healing. This is the treatment your wrist tendons and ligaments need to heal. The Wrist Wrap is comfortable and easy to apply. To heal as quickly as possible, do 3-4 treatments per day, spread out over the course of your day.
For Your Foot
ColdCure® Foot Wrap
The ColdCure® Foot Wrap targets the entire bottom of your foot and up the back of your heel. If you're suffering from Plantar Fasciitis or Metatarsalgia, this is the product for you. The Foot Wrap will bring down your swelling and take away your pain. It fits on your foot like a slipper and comes with an adjustable belt so you can adjust it to your liking.
BFST® Foot Wrap
The BFST® Foot Wrap will improve the circulation in the bottom of your foot. This will work to heal your damaged tissue and speed up your recovery. You can't find this technology anywhere else. Other treatments that stretch your plantar fascia, like foam rollers and night splints, will only cause more pain and more damage.
For Your Achilles
ColdCure® Achilles Wrap
If you have Achilles Tendonitis, or any other injury to the back of your ankle, use our ColdCure® Achilles Wrap to take down the swelling and control the pain. The Achilles Wrap covers the entire back of your ankle. The gel pack inside the wrap molds all the way up the back of your ankle to target your Achilles Tendon.
BFST® Achilles Wrap
Use the BFST® Achilles Wrap to heal your Achilles Tendonitis or other injuries in the back of your ankle.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape
for Rapid Healing
for Pain & Swelling
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 Triathlon injury.
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 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 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. 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 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.
Any time you're not doing a ColdCure® or BFST® treatment, wear KB Support Tape over the injured area. 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 the Tape has been removed at the end of the day.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. They are designed, manufactured and tested to very high standards of quality, safety and performance. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. The FDA looks out for medical device users by ensuring that manufacturers meet the criteria they set out. This doesn't apply to manufacturers of lower quality, consumer grade products.
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in the injured tissue below the dermal (fat & skin) layer. Utilizing our proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe, low levels of EMR energy envelop your injury and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to the injured area, 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 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 within the injured area. 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. BFST® Wraps can actually heal soft tissue injuries, unlike heating pads. BFST® treatments work to bring additional blood flow to the area of your injury, deep below the skin. This increase in blood flow actively helps to 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® device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The Wrap molds the Energy Web® around the entire injured area to ensure that your injury receives an even distribution of energy. The Velcro® straps make it easy to adjust the size of the wrap to find the perfect fit for your body shape. You don't need to remove the BFST® Wrap after your treatment ends. Simply unplug the controller from the device and keep wearing it to act as a reminder of your injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are Class I FDA Registered medical devices. They're designed for use at home or on-the-go. They exceed all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries like those sustained in swimming, cycling and running. When applied, the ColdCure® Wrap immediately reduces 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 just 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. If you find that the gel is too stiff from the freezer, leave it out for several minutes before inserting it into the wrap. This will make it more flexible, while still retaining maximum cold capacity.
Many people use the RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - method when treating a soft tissue injury. What most of these people probably don't know are the serious dangers that are associated with using ice. 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.
XC Gel® packs provide superior coverage and cooling. XC Gel® packs contain 10x more gel per lb than other products, for maximum coverage of your injury. When stored in the freezer, our gel packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products. This means longer treatments and faster relief of pain and swelling. It also means less time spent getting up to swap out the packs. More coverage plus more cooling power equals an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® gel packs are specially designed for the shape of the body part you're treating. They conform to the entire injured area 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. Every body part is uniquely shaped, which is why all of our gel packs are uniquely shaped too.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
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 injury 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 have all the same benefits that our outstanding XC RigiGel® formula has to offer! XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the pack with the white side facing towards your injury or away from your injury since they're not side specific.
