The products below ARE FDA Registered medical devices. These products and treatments ARE intended to prevent, treat and cure Pes Anserinus Injuries.
Whether you have bursitis or have injured a tendon in your Pes Anserinus (also known as the Goose Foot), we have the tools you need to relieve the pain and heal quickly. We know you want to get back to your regular activities and feel better in a reduced amount of time. We know how frustrating it is to deal with immobility and pain. That's why we designed the BFST® and ColdCure® Knee Wraps.
Do this and you can heal your Pes Anserinus - finally.
You can heal your Pes Anserinus. You don't have to suffer needlessly because of treatments that don't help. All you need is the correct treatment. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps bring oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your Pes Anserinus, which is a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured knee at rest often has restricted blood flow, which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity will promote blood flow, but all too often it also results in small but frequent re-injury, which extends your healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops. With a King Brand® BFST® Knee Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your injured Pes Anserinus while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Pes Anserinus Injury at a surprisingly rapid rate.
The BFST® Knee Wrap stimulates blood flow through your knee while your body is at rest. This is very important because an unaided, inflamed knee with a Pes Anserinus injury can have seriously impeded blood circulation. That's why the BFST® Knee Wrap is vital to your recovery. You're stimulating the high-quality, healthy blood flow your knee needs to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. They feel great. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their knee as the BFST® Wrap starts increasing their blood flow. Since the effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, we recommend that you spread your treatments out over the course of the day. An ideal treatment regimen would be one treatment first thing in the morning, a treatment in the afternoon, another treatment in the evening, and the last treatment of the day right before bed.
The BFST® Knee Wrap is designed to be worn even when turned off. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the device and gently tighten the straps. This will provide your knee with light, comfortable compression between treatments. This constant pressure over your knee will work to reduce your inflammation throughout the day, so you're working to get rid of it even between your treatments. This is an extremely valuable feature of the Knee Wrap and helps contribute to a much faster recovery.
Pes Anserinus Injuries can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing us to reach for painkillers time and time again. The reality is that analgesics and NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen 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.
All painkillers do is mask the pain. This is dangerous because without the pain, you can't tell if you're doing further damage. Trust the pain. It's there to keep you from re-injuring yourself. It's understandable that people need relief from the pain, so if you're going to use painkillers, make sure you take them during times of inactivity. Using them when you are active can lead to serious damage.
ColdCure® Wraps are a much safer, more effective alternative to painkillers. The ColdCure® Knee Wrap does an outstanding job of relieving the pain and swelling that comes with a Pes Anserinus injury, without any of the negative effects of painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps also work faster. While painkillers take 20 minutes to kick in, you will feel the cool, soothing relief as soon as you apply the ColdCure® Wrap to your knee.
For dealing with the pain and swelling associated with Pes Anserinus injuries, 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. Our gel packs pose no threat of cold burns. This makes them much safer to use than other 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 comes with 3 swappable gel packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible. It holds its form and doesn't migrate to other areas of the wrap, meaning it always stays in place to treat your Pes Anserinus. The gel 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. 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 Pes Anserinus becomes vulnerable to further injury. You don't want to make your Pes Anserinus worse than it already is. Apply KB Support Tape to your Pes Anserinus for extra support and protection between treatments.
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 lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. It also helps to prevent re-injury by giving your healing tissue targeted support and protection, without restricting your range of motion.
KB Support Tape comes in 2 different sizes: 2 inch wide and 3 inch wide. The 2 inch wide variety is ideal for smaller areas (Foot, Wrist), while the 3 inch wide style is better for larger areas (Back, Leg). This also works for your size. Bigger people will prefer the 3 inch wide Tape, while smaller people will prefer the 2 inch wide Tape.
The 2 inch wide Tape comes in 4 different colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. The 3 inch Tape is also available in Black & Beige. There is no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your individual style.
While the 2 inch wide Tape is available in both Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll, the 3 inch wide Tape comes in a Continuous Roll only.
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 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. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that's 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.
We encourage you to experiment with different application methods for the Pes Anserinus so you can 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 are feeling pain in a specific area of your knee, apply the tape there.
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 toys, clothes and 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.

One of our helpful Advisors will contact you 4-5 days after your order has been delivered to see how your treatments are going and answer any questions you may have. Our Advisors have been thoroughly trained on BFST® and ColdCure® technology and treatments. They are also knowledgeable when it comes to treating the Pes Anserinus.

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 one product or the other. This is because you're getting 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 Pes Anserinus.
Use the ColdCure® Wrap several times a day to help relieve the pain and 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 lasts 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 your knee (Ex. walking, standing for extended periods of time). 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 aggravation 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 BFST® or ColdCure® treatment, wear KB Support Tape on your knee. 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.
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. They are required to meet 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. Consumer grade products don't, because they're not FDA Registered.
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 levels of EMR energy envelop your Pes Anserinus and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the affected area, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps have 3 different power settings, which you will move through gradually as your Pes Anserinus improves. Everyone should start their treatments on Level 1. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up your healing time. You need to condition the body first.
During your first few treatments on Level 1, your knee area may feel quite warm. This is because your circulation is poor at first. The more you use the device, 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 knee is improving. Better circulation means more 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.
BFST® Wraps are far more effective than heating pads. BFST® Wraps stimulate healthy blood flow deep down in your soft tissue. This increase in blood flow works to create an ideal environment for healing. Heating pads simply bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This does nothing for the damaged tissues below. 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 molds the Energy Web® around the complex shape of your knee to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the Pes Anserinus. The long, wide straps attached to the wrap allow you to customize the fit. You don't need to remove the wrap after treatment. Unplug the device and tighten the straps to use it as a light support brace for your knee. It also provides constant pressure to help relieve the inflammation in your Pes Anserinus.
You need to keep doing BFST® treatments even after the pain is gone, because the pain ends long before you've finished healing your Pes Anserinus. 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. Do regular BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone in order to complete the healing process. Do a BFST® treatment prior to any physical activity to warm up your circulatory system. You should also continue taping 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. When applied, these medical grade cold compression wraps will 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.
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 -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 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 1-2 minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. 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 contain 10x more gel per lb than ordinary packs. This means maximum coverage of your knee. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than ordinary gel packs. This means faster relief of pain and swelling. It also means longer treatment times without having to get up and swap the packs as often. Bigger packs with more gel inside plus superior cooling power equals an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Knee gel packs are custom designed to mold to your knee. This means you'll receive an even distribution of cooling power over your Pes Anserinus throughout treatment. We don't just use one generic gel pack with all of our wraps. All of our gel packs are specially designed for a specific part of the body. This ensures the best coverage and treatment possible. Every body part is uniquely shaped, which is why every one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. This product has 100% been designed for the Pes Anserinus.
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 Pes Anserinus, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster then 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 painful knee will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack every time. 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. 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.
