If you have knee pain, chances are you've got an underlying injury or condition causing that pain. If you really want to get rid of the pain with a reduced risk of it coming back, you can't just treat the pain. You need to heal the injury. We know you want to relieve the pain and heal as quickly as possible so you can get back to your routine. Knowing the proper way to do this is the hard part. Fortunately, King Brand® has a solution. When it comes to reducing knee pain and speeding up the healing process, nothing works better than our ColdCure® and BFST® Knee Wraps.
Do this and you can get rid of your knee pain - finally.
You can relieve your knee pain and get back to your regular activities. You simply need the right treatment. You need to stimulate blood flow in order to heal the underlying issue causing your pain. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy®.
BFST® Wraps bring oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area of your knee. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissue. Unfortunately, an injured knee at rest usually has very limited blood flow. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. With a BFST® Knee Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your injured knee while you're at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your knee injury at a surprisingly rapid rate.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your knee while you are at rest. This is very important because, while at rest, an unaided and inflamed knee 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 your knee to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. People often feel a slight tingling sensation and warmth from the increase in blood flow. For best results, do 3-4 BFST® treatments per day. Since the effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, it's ideal to spread your treatments out throughout the day. An optimal treatment regimen would be one treatment first thing in the morning, another treatment in the afternoon, a treatment in the evening, and the last treatment of the day right before bed.
Having a reminder of your injury during recovery is important because avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. Being reminded of how serious our injuries are prevents us from doing too much, which can result in re-injury and a longer recovery time. That's why we designed the BFST® Knee Wrap to be worn between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller andtighten the wrap to your knee. This will provide your knee with light support and protection.
Knee Pain can be very frustrating to deal with in your day-to-day life, causing you to take painkillers for some relief. Analgesics and 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, analgesics and NSAIDs are known blood thinners and make the bleeding worse for fresh tissue injuries. Typical pain medications actually interfere with the healing process. Cortisone injections are used in extreme cases but these too are intended to address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injured tissue and they put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Painkillers don't do anything to treat the injury itself. All they do is mask the pain, making you feel a false sense of ability that can lead to further injury. If you do need to take painkillers, restrict them to times when you're at rest. You can take painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Avoid the dangers of painkillers and use a ColdCure® Knee Wrap. These cold compression devices are a safe, effective alternative to painkillers. They also work much faster than painkillers. As soon as you apply the ColdCure® Wrap to your knee, you will feel the soothing, cool relief. With painkillers, you have to wait 20 minutes for them to start working. The ColdCure® Knee Wrap does an amazing job of relieving the pain and swelling associated with knee injuries.
For dealing with the swelling and pain that comes with a knee injury, nothing works better than cold and compression.
ColdCure® technology was developed 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 tissue. This makes them much safer to use than products that use ice, which can cause the skin to freeze, leading to permanent damage. 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.
The ColdCure® Knee Wrap is made entirely of soft, stretchy material. It comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible, meaning it always stays in place. Unlike gooey blue gel that migrates to other areas of the pack, our gel won't flow away from your injury. It conforms to your knee for an even, consistent treatment every time. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can have the other two charging in the freezer to keep your therapy going. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief.
When you're not doing BFST® or ColdCure® treatments, your already damaged tissue becomes vulnerable to further injury. You don't want to re-injure your fragile, healing tissue and make your knee injury worse than it already is. Apply KB Support Tape over your knee between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments. This will provide your injured tissue with ongoing support and protection.
Our skin is soft and elastic and can stretch much more than the tissue underneath. When you apply KB Support Tape to your skin, it becomes a much more rigid surface than before, serving to limit how much 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 provides your injury with lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. It also prevents re-injury by providing support and protection for your injured tissue.
KB Support Tape comes in 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These 2 styles come in 4 different colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your personal style.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are perfect 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 ideal 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 knee injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.
While we found the above application to be effective for Knee Injuries, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for your Knee 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, apply the tape there.
What makes KB Support Tape better than 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 toys, clothes and even diapers. Don't let the big brand tapes fool you. Most of them are made from toxic materials, because there are no standards for athletic tape. Some big brand athletic tape glues even contain carcinogenic ingredients. At King Brand®, your health and safety is of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.

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 Knee Pain.
Use the ColdCure® Wrap several times a day to help reduce not only the visible swelling you may see on the surface, but also the inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue.
Avoid using the BFST® Wrap until your inflammation and swelling has subsided. Start your BFST® treatments on Level 1. For maximum benefit, please take into consideration that each 20 minute treatment optimizes your blood circulation for an average of 4 hours. We recommend 3-4 treatments daily, spread throughout the day. During the day, do a BFST® treatment every 4 hours or before any type of physical activity. This can include anything that puts a strain on the injured area (running, jumping, etc). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow.
Do a ColdCure® treatment any time you experience a pain flare-up or after any physical activity to prevent further injury and reduce swelling and inflammation. Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before doing a BFST® treatment. This time will allow the blood flow and body temperature to regulate again. Refrain from using ColdCure® within the 4 hours following your 20 minute BFST® treatment. This will counteract the treatment. If necessary, use the ColdCure® Wrap for pain control, then follow up with another BFST® treatment.
Any time you're not doing a ColdCure® or BFST® treatment, wear KB Support Tape® over your Knee. 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.
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. This means they've been designed, tested and manufactured to very high standards of quality, safety and performance. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards that have been put forth by the FDA and Health Canada to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. Manufacturers of consumer grade products can't say the same.
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe, low levels of EMR energy envelop your injured knee, stimulating blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your injury, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. Everyone should start their treatments on Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as they heal. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up the healing process. You need to condition the body first.
During your first few treatments on Level 1, your knee will 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 your circulation 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 does not mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
When it comes to therapeutic benefits, BFST® Wraps are far superior to heating pads in every way. BFST® Wraps work to heal your injury by bringing additional blood flow to the damaged tissues, deep below the skin. All heating pads do is draw blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This doesn't do anything to heal your injury. Also, BFST® Wraps are medical devices. Heating pads are not. There is a huge difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Knee device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around your knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that ensure a custom fit. When your treatment ends, you don't need to remove the wrap. Keep wearing it to act as a light support brace for your injured knee.
When you're recovering from a knee injury, the pain ends long before you've finished healing. In fact, the pain is usually gone once you're 20-30% healed. The healing process is very complex and takes much longer than most people realize. (You can click here for the full story.) The key thing to remember is that long after the pain stops, your knee is still healing. This means you need to keep 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. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system. You should also continue to tape your knee to help prevent re-injury.
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. Cold and compression applied to a painful knee immediately reduces the risk of damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing the long term, permanent damage that can result 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 out 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 at -20°C and rapidly go to 0°C, but then their temperature keeps rising quickly, instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 0°C. The XC Gel® danger zone is very small, but the benefits are huge.
While XC Gel® packs are designed to be stored in the freezer, you can store them in the fridge if you find them too cold from the freezer. Not all freezers are the same. If you find that the gel is too stiff from the freezer, leave it out for 1-2 minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment.
RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula that most people follow when treating a soft tissue injury. What these people probably don't know is that using ice can be dangerous. Ice 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.
XC Gel® packs contain 10x more gel per lb than other products, for complete coverage of your painful knee. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products, meaning longer treatment times without having to swap the gel packs as often. This also means faster relief of your pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside plus superior cooling power equals a better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Knee gel packs are custom designed for the knee. This ensures that your injury receives an even distribution of cooling power during treatment. We don't just use one common gel pack with all of our wraps. Every body part deserves a specially designed gel pack, because every part of the body is shaped differently. Each and every one of our gel packs is designed for a specific body part to ensure the best coverage possible. This product has 100% been designed to treat Knee Pain.
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC Gel® packs help to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to an injured knee, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen knee will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature-balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
XC Gel® packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will give you all the same benefits that our high performance XC Gel® has to offer. XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your knee or away from your knee since they're not side specific.
