You see it all the time. A professional athlete develops Lateral epicondylitis ( aka Tennis Elbow ). It's the exact same injury thousands of people get yet the professional athlete is competing again in a matter of days while most people suffer for weeks. How can that be? The difference is that the general public take pain killers and just rest while the pro athlete takes more action. Professional athletes are using tools to help them heal quickly. And the reality is that anyone with Tennis Eblow can have that treatment too. King Brand makes those tools. We provide them to professional athletes and we can provide them to you.
Lateral epicondylitis and other forms of tendonitis are some of the most persistent conditions many people are faced with. Whether its due to a sudden trauma or the result of repetitive strain, once damaged, it can be incredibly resistant to healing. Patients with Lateral Epicondylitis rarely take the time necessary to rest their elbow so it can heal completely. For medical professionals it is impractical to expect the patient to not use an arm for weeks or months while the body heals itself. For the practical treatment of Elbow Tendonitis a more proactive solution is required.
In the vast majority of cases, lateral epicondylitis may not be immediately noticed by the patient. Typically, after the initial injury it is through ongoing use of the injured tendon, inflammation and pain eventually sets in. The pain may come on slowly and the condition can worsen for weeks or months after the initial damage. It is typically then that the patient seeks medical help. By this time the tendon(s) can be severely inflamed with a very long recovery time if nothing but rest and anti-inflammatories are, sadly, the prescribed solution.
When instructed to rest their elbow to give the lateral epicondylitis time to heal, the typical patient will do so - for a little while. But this window is very short before people resume normal activity - healed or not. This leaves a limited window of time to get results. During that time, regular treatments with BFST® and ColdCure® therapy devices can maximize the healing process.
King Brand Healthcare Products® are the creators of Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®).
For rapid healing of tendonitis and tendinosis (Tennis Elbow), blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the elbow tendons which are required for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, when you sit still, an inflamed tendon often has restricted blood flow which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity will promote blood flow but excessive activity is typically the cause of Tennis Elbow. More activity results in reinjury which further extends the healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops.
With a King Brand® BFST® therapy device for Tennis Elbow, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while the patient is at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of reinjury, patients can recover from Tennis Elbow at surprisingly rapid rates.
Professional athletes are the best example of how quickly people can really recover from soft tissue injuries such as lateral epicondylitis. When a professional athlete is injured, they have explicit instructions to rest their injured tendon - no physical activity, no loading of the joint - they are ordered to rest the tendon completely. Injured professional athletes though also are attended to by professional athletic therapists. These pro therapists have always been assigned to the athlete to ensure they supplement the healing process with exercises and stretches, 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 the patient will heal. That's why professional athletes are back in the game in days while regular patients with the same ailments often take weeks or even months to heal. With the addition of BFST® pro athletes and others who use it are recovering faster than ever.
A ColdCure® Elbow wrap from King Brand® Healthcare is specifically designed for treating Tennis Elbow related pain. It does a superior job of relieving pain and swelling without the use of drugs. This innovative wrap is incredibly soothing and protects your elbow from further injury. The pain killing element is actually incredibly powerful and it works instantly - there's no 20 minute wait like with pills.
While promoting blood flow at rest is fundamental to rapid recovery, controlling inflammation and pain are also very important for treating lateral epicondylitis. And for dealing with swelling and pain, nothing works better than cold compression. Unfortunately and particularly when treating the elbow, ice packsare an undesirable solution. Ice packs by nature are too cold - they can freeze the skin causing severe damage.
What's more, because the skin over the elbow is so thin with little to no fat for insulation, ice packs can easily freeze tissue below the skin resulting in further damage to the injured area. This can make a bad situation worse. NSAIDs (Ibuprofen, ASA, Acetaminophen, etc) are undesirable options because they are known to interfere with blood function such as clotting. Proper blood function is fundamental to healing! The most suitable solution is cold (not ice) compression. ColdCure™ compression wraps provide this solution.
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 swelling and pain that comes with Tennis Elbow. As well, ColdCure™ wraps carry the same benefits as BFST™ wraps in that they provide additional support and protection to the injured area and serve to remind the patient that they are getting better.

As professional therapists and medical practitioners you know that it is in your best interest to treat your patients quickly and completely. Using regular, alternating, BFST® and ColdCure® treatments your patient will heal quickly and completely with minimal swelling and pain. This ends up in lower treatment costs, greater patient satisfaction and a reduced chance of reinjury. The combination of BFST® and ColdCure® therapies result in the least suffering and most rapid recovery of your Tennis Elbow patients.
The BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our patented Energy Web®, specially controlled EMR energy envelops the entire elbow and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue beneath the skin and around the bone. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to the injured area accelerating the healing process.
As an FDA Registered Medical Device the BFST® wrap is suitable for use in hospital and therapeutic clinics. Because the device is completely safe for patients to use themselves, the BFST® wraps can also be used by the patients at home. Home use reduces in-clinic medical costs and further speeds up healing times.
The Energy Web® used in BFST® elbow therapy is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the energy web to mold around the complex form of the elbow 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 guarantee a perfect fit. As well, the wrap and unwrap design allows for easy wrapping of a tender injured joint without having to slip into or out of a tube shaped device. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed.
After treatment the straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the injured elbow. The device disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so that the user is free to move about the treatment clinic or home when not receiving treatment while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort. The device is incredibly comfortable to wear.
Cold compression wraps are standard medical products for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Cold and compression applied to lateral epicondylitis immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. This swelling can be in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or tendon sheaths within the arm. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as a result of a soft tissue injury.
The King Brand ColdCure® Elbow Wrap is a medical grade cold compression wrap designed for use in hospitals and injury therapy clinics. Because of the benefits of regular use, patients are commonly treating themselves at home and getting even better results. The ColdCure® wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in soft tissue injuries. Most importantly, ColdCure® technology won't burn the skin and underlying tissue which is particularly important when treating elbow conditions.
Improving on the RICE standard of injury care, ColdCure® wraps are specifically designed to operate at refrigeration (not freezer) temperatures. This eliminates the potential of skin damage during treatment associated with all freezer wraps. This improved standard is called RCCE® (Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation). RCCE® allows for the wraps to be applied to the patient and used while not attended by a physician or clinician. This is very important given the likelihood of skin damage from alternative devices which use cold packs charged in a freezer. Elbow injuries should not be treated with regular ice packs.
The oversized cold packs in all ColdCure® wraps contain specially formulated gel with more cooling power per lb than standard wraps. This allows for longer treatment durations without having to recharge the wrap or switch cold packs. The longer treatment times and more cold power means more pain relief, better control of swelling and less handling of the injured area. These all result in a better treatment. Each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 large cold packs allowing for immediate re-use in clinical settings or the ability for extended treatment durations in the patient's home.
Like the BFST® Wraps, ColdCure® Elbow wraps are enclosed in soft, comfortable neoprene shell. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the elbow providing maximum coverage of the tendons below the skin. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - the elbow is shaped very differently from any other body part and 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 around the entire joint 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% an elbow treatment device.
The ColdCure® wraps use RigiGel technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area when pressure is applied. The gel stays in place even under pressure. Yet it is still soft and molds to the body. ColdCure® wraps are unique and of a higher quality and performance than any other wrap available. Nothing else comes even close. Again, like the BFST® wrap, the ColdCure® wrap is opened and closed using attached velcro straps that guarantee a perfect fit. The wrap and unwrap design allows for easily applying it around a tender, injured, elbow without having to slip into or out of a sleeve like device
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® gel packs distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to the elbow, gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the gel. 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 injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature balancing power of these gel packs is unmatched.
XC RigiGel® 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 RigiGel® has to offer. The gel pack can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your elbow or away from your elbow since the gel pack is not side specific.
Increase the effectiveness of your ColdCure® treatments by attaching an Accessory Strap to your Elbow wrap. This simple little addition allows you to increase the compression and support in any area of the wrap. It sticks anywhere to the surface of the wrap to target the exact location of your injury that much better. For a small price it adds large value. The Accessory Strap will provide you with additional compression and this means maximum pain and swelling relief.
