One Super Important Fact:
The products below ARE FDA Registered medical devices. These products and treatments ARE intended to prevent, treat and cure Peroneal Tendonitis.
Rapid Recovery for Peroneal Tendonitis
Peroneal Tendonitis is an overuse injury that affects the tendons that run along the outside of your ankle and lower part of your calf. While resting your ankle will help you avoid further injury, you need a more proactive solution if you want to heal your Peroneal Tendonitis as quickly as possible. You need the same tools the professional use to get back in the game in a reduced amount of time. You need our BFST® and ColdCure® Ankle Wraps.
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 Peroneal Tendon 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. KB Support Tape will help with this. Giving your ankle a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Peroneal Tendon can truly heal - finally.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For Peroneal Tendonitis, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) gives your Peroneal Tendon the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.
BFST® Wraps bring extra oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured Peroneal Tendon at rest often has restricted blood flow, which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can cause further damage to your already injured Peroneal Tendon. The King Brand® BFST® Ankle Wrap is your solution. With the BFST® Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your injured Peroneal Tendon while you are at rest. This means you can receive the blood flow your tendon needs to heal while you rest and avoid re-injury. You can't find this technology anywhere else.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices heal soft tissue.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your Peroneal Tendon while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed Peroneal Tendon 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 the Peroneal Tendon to heal properly and quickly.
The BFST® device is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on and sit back and relax. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their ankle as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. Since the effects of a BFST® treatment last for 4 hours, it's best to spread your treatments out over the course of your day. An example of this would be doing 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 you go to bed.
Almost as important as the promotion of blood flow is the reminder of your injury. It's the reminder that helps you move with care in order to avoid re-injury. And avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why we recommend that you keep wearing your Ankle Wrap between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the wrap and gently tighten the straps around your ankle. This will provide your ankle with light, comfortable support and protection, as well as act as a reminder of your injury.
Dealing With Pain
Peroneal Tendonitis can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing you to rely on painkillers. 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 mask the pain. Without fail this causes people to over stress and re-injure their Peroneal Tendon. While they temporarily relieve the pain, painkillers will only make things worse in the long run. It is understandable that people need relief from the pain, so if you have to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you are off your feet. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
ColdCure®: Safer & More Effective
The best method for controlling pain is a ColdCure® Ankle Wrap from King Brand®. ColdCure® Wraps do an outstanding job of relieving the pain and inflammation that comes with Peroneal Tendonitis, without any of the negative aspects of painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps also work faster than painkillers. As soon as you apply the wrap to your ankle, you will feel the cool, soothing relief. With painkillers, you have to wait 20 minutes for them to kick in. ColdCure® Wraps are superior to painkillers in every way.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Peroneal Tendonitis, nothing works better than cold and compression.
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 to your Peroneal Tendon for extended periods of time, providing superior relief from the swelling and pain that comes with Peroneal Tendonitis. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there is no better version than the ColdCure® Ankle Wrap. Put one on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain and tension out of your ankle.
The ColdCure® Ankle Wrap is made entirely of very soft, stretchy material. It comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our special XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® holds its form and doesn't migrate to other areas of the wrap, meaning it always stays in place to treat your injury. Unlike other gels that are watery and mushy, ours won't move, even when put 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. We recommend that you do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day.
Protect Your Peroneal Tendon Between Treatments
When you're not doing treatments with your BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your Peroneal Tendonitis worse. Apply KB Support Tape over the injured area of your ankle any time you're not doing a BFST® or ColdCure® treatment. This will provide your Peroneal Tendon with additional 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 - Use All Day During Work & Play
KB Support Tape provides your injury with lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. You can wear it during all of your daily activities and it won't get in the way or restrict your movement.
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.
While we found the above application to be effective for Peroneal Tendonitis, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for Peroneal Tendonitis 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 ankle, 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 safer materials than most baby products, including diapers, toys and clothing. 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 are of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape
for Rapid Healing
for Pain & Swelling
to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape between your 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®, the healing benefits of BFST®, and the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Peroneal Tendonitis.
Use the ColdCure® Wrap several times a day to 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 (walking, standing for extended periods, 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.
Any time you're not doing a BFST® or ColdCure® treatment, wear KB Support Tape over your Peroneal Tendon. 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 it 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 have been designed, manufactured and tested to very high standards of quality, safety and performance. The FDA makes sure of this. The FDA holds all manufacturers of medical devices accountable, unlike manufacturers of consumer grade products. That's one of the things that sets BFST® Wraps so high above the rest.
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, low levels of EMR energy envelop the damaged Peroneal Tendon and stimulate 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. Everyone should start their treatments at Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as their Peroneal Tendon heals. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up the healing process. You need to condition the body first.
During your first treatments on Level 1, your Peroneal Tendon area 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 the circulation in your Peroneal Tendon 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.
BFST® Wraps are far more effective than heating pads. BFST® Wraps penetrate deep down to the area of your injury to create an ideal environment for healing. Heating pads can't do this. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your damaged tissues by improving your blood circulation. All heating pads 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 significant.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Ankle Wrap is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the Peroneal Tendon 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 allow you to adjust the fit. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The device easily disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so you are free to move around your home when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for support and comfort.
Complete the Healing Process
When you're recovering from Peroneal Tendonitis, the pain ends long before you've finished healing. In fact, the pain is usually gone once you're about 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 Peroneal Tendon is still healing. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to complete the healing process. Doing regular BFST® treatments for 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 Peroneal Tendon to help prevent re-injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. These medical grade cold compression wraps are designed for convenient use at home or on-the-go. Cold and compression applied to an injured Peroneal Tendon 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. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries like Peroneal Tendonitis.
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 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'd prefer them to be less cold. If you find that the gel is too stiff when it comes out of the freezer, leave it out for several minutes before inserting it into the wrap. This will allow it to soften while still retaining maximum cold capacity.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that temperatures below freezing can be too cold to effectively relieve pain and swelling. And these temperatures can also 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.
ColdCure® gel packs contain 10x more gel per lb than other packs, for maximum coverage of your Peroneal Tendon. When stored in the freezer, our XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than standard gel packs. This means they stay cold longer, so you won't have to swap the gels as often. Longer treatment times and more cold power means faster relief of your pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside plus amazing cooling power equals a better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Ankle gel packs are specially designed for the shape of the ankle. They conform to the top of your foot and sides of your ankle to ensure you receive an even distribution of cooling power over your Peroneal Tendon. Each and every one of our ColdCure® Wraps comes with custom designed gel packs. Each part of the body is shaped differently, which is why each one of our gel packs is shaped differently too. This ensures that the entire injured area is always comfortably targeted. The ColdCure® Ankle Wrap was 100% designed to treat Peroneal Tendonitis.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to the Peroneal Tendon area, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the rest of the pack. 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 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 RigiGel® has to offer. The gel pack can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your ankle or away from your ankle since XC Gel® packs are not side specific.
