You don't have to suffer. You don't have to wait.
You simply need the right treatment
Many specialists recommend orthotics to re-shape and support your foot to treat your case of painful sesamoiditis, which is absolutely the wrong thing to do. What many people don't realize, all that's required is rest, reducing inflammation to keep you comfortable and increasing blood flow so your body can heal naturally.
You want to speed up the healing process, not reverse it. You want to promote blood flow to help your sesamoid heal quickly. Don't keep damaging it. You need to rest your foot. Relieve the pain and swelling with a ColdCure® Foot Wrap. Speed up the healing process by stimulating blood flow with a BFST® Foot Wrap.
Start with the ColdCure® Foot Wrap to alleviate the pain and inflammation in your foot. Do regular ColdCure® treatments until your swelling and inflammation have subsided, then start doing BFST® treatments. The BFST® Foot Wrap will work to actively heal your damaged tissue through the promotion of blood flow. It targets the injured area of your foot, deep below the skin, creating an ideal environment for healing. This is the technology you need to get rid of your Sesamoiditis and get back to your active lifestyle.
Do this and your Sesamoiditis can truly heal - finally.
If you want to heal your Sesamoiditis, you need to rest your foot and stimulate blood flow. For Sesamoiditis, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately, an injured foot at rest has very limited blood flow. That's why we developed Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps are designed to promote blood flow while you're at rest. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, it can also make your injury worse. The BFST® Wrap brings nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to your injury while you're at rest. This means you can rest your foot and avoid re-injury while your Foot receives the additional blood flow it needs to heal.
The BFST® Foot Wrap works to actively stimulate blood flow through the bottom of your foot. This is very important because when your foot is at rest, blood flow to the injured area is severely impaired, stalling the healing process. It's healthy, high-quality blood flow that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required if you want to heal your Sesamoiditis properly and quickly.
People love the way BFST® treatments feel. They are very pleasant and relaxing. During treatment, you will notice a slight warming sensation in the bottom of your foot. Some people also experience a slight tingling sensation resulting from the increase in blood flow. We recommend 3-4 BFST® treatments per day, spread throughout the day. The effects of each 20 minute treatment last for up to 4 hours, so even when your treatment is over, your blood flow is still working to help you heal.
The promotion of blood flow has obvious benefits. The reminder of the injury is incredibly important too, because avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. The BFST® device is designed to be worn even when turned off to help protect the bottom of your foot from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening your recovery time. People enjoy the support and cushioning BFST® Wraps provide and appreciate that they are healing - people like wearing them, they know it's helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.

Painkillers mask the pain and cause you to continue to stress and injure your foot. They don't do anything to address the underlying condition causing the pain. 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. For example, you can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Sesamoiditis can be extremely painful and debilitating. NSAIDs and analgesics 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 and analgesics 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.
Avoid the dangers of painkillers. Use a ColdCure® Foot Wrap from King Brand®. This innovative device is incredibly soothing and protects your foot from further injury. Since the wrap and the gel packs are specially designed for the bottom of the foot, they do a superior job of relieving the swelling and pain associated with Sesamoiditis. ColdCure® Wraps also work faster than painkillers. While pills take 20 minutes to start working, you will feel the cooling and soothing effect of ColdCure® within seconds of slipping the wrap on your foot.
The ColdCure® Foot Wrap provides superior relief of the swelling and pain that comes with Sesamoiditis. ColdCure® Foot devices use cold and compression together, because cold and compression are the two things you need to eliminate pain and swelling as quickly and effectively as possible. The application of cold compression must be uniform and complete if it's going to work the best, and this is exactly what ColdCure® Foot Wraps provide.
We developed ColdCure® technology as a safe alternative to standard ice packs. Most people aren't aware of the serious dangers that ice packs pose. Ice packs can freeze your skin and cause 'cold burns', resulting in permanent damage to your underlying tissue. Not all freezers are the same. When you take your King Brand ice pack from the freezer, if it is safe to use it will be flexible enough to put in the wrap. If it is too cold and can damage your skin it will be stiff. This is by design. Within a few minutes a stiff ice pack will become flexible and safe to use. Don't worry, it will still be very cold - just safe and cold and the cold will last a long, long time. Better yet, our XC gel is hyper conductive so the cold in the pack moves to where you need it. Don't get hot and cold spots. The cold moves to your injury from all over the pack for maximum treatment effect.
Cold compression reduces swelling
The ColdCure® Foot Wrap comes with 3 swappable gel packs that contain our amazing XC RigiGel® formula. While other gel formulas are watery and mushy, ours is firm yet flexible. XC® gel doesn't move around inside the pack. It stays in place where you need it, even under heavy pressure for long periods of time. One gel pack is inserted inside the wrap at a time, so you can have the other two charging in the fridge or the freezer to keep your therapy going. If you're charging the gel packs in the fridge, there's no need to take breaks between treatments. You can keep using the wrap as long as you need the pain relief.
When you're not doing BFST® or ColdCure® treatments, your Foot becomes vulnerable to further damage. Using KB Support Tape takes some of the tension off your Sesamoid while you are standing and walking, so you don't have to worry about re-injuring your Sesamoid as you go about your day. It adds an extra layer of protection and support to your foot, which is important when you're not at rest or doing BFST® and ColdCure® treatments.
Our skin is soft and elastic and can stretch much more than the tissue underneath. When you apply KB Support Tape to the bottom of your foot, your skin 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, holding your tissue in place, helping to prevent re-injury. That's why we call it armor for your injury.
Apply KB Support Tape any time you want additional support and protection for your Sesamoiditis. The Tape also provides ongoing compression throughout the day, so you get swelling relief that's lightweight and comfortable, without restricting movement.
Choose from 2 different styles of KB Support Tape - Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll and 3 colors - Blue, Black & Beige. There's no function difference between the colors, they just let you express your personal style.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are always ready to use because they've already been cut into strips for you. Simply peel off the backing and apply. 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 ideal for people who are looking for a customizable Tape. You can create a variety of lengths and shapes with the Continuous Roll. The backing even has a handy graph design to help you cut it. 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 Sesamoiditis. You do not need 2 different colors of KB Support Tape in order to achieve this application.
The above application for Sesamoiditis is only an example. We encourage you to try different applications in order to find the one that works best for you. Also, remember to trust the pain. If you feel pain in a specific area of your Feet, apply the Tape there.
What sets KB Support Tape apart from the other tapes out there? For one, 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 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.
For Smaller Feet
If your foot measures under 8.5 inches from your heel to the ball of your foot (the area on the bottom of your foot between your toes and your arch), you need to use our BFST® and ColdCure® Foot Wraps. They'll cover the entire bottom of your foot, including the Sesamoid.
For Larger Feet
If your foot measures over 8.5 inches from your heel to the ball of your foot (the area on the bottom of your foot between your toes and your arch), you need to use our BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps. Wrap them around your foot and toes horizontally for complete coverage of the Sesamoid.
If your foot measures under 8.5 inches from your heel to the ball of your foot (the area on the bottom of your foot between your toes and your arch), you need to use our BFST® and ColdCure® Foot Wraps. They'll cover the entire bottom of your foot, including the Metatarsals.
If your foot measures over 8.5 inches from your heel to the ball of your foot (the area on the bottom of your foot between your toes and your arch), you need to use our BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps. Wrap them around your foot and toes horizontally for complete coverage of the Metatarsals.
Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape. 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®, as well as the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Sesamoiditis.
The most important part of treating your Sesamoiditis is to 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.
At the beginning don't be discouraged that you'll be relying more heavily on ColdCure® treatments because the inflammation will continue to re-develop when you are active. Being aggressive with back to back cold treatments will give your body a chance to get ahead of the inflammation, and prepare your injury for the blood flow that's needed to help heal quickly.
Introduce your BFST® treatments slowly, once your swelling and inflammation is under control. Starting your BFST will depend on how much swelling is present. It should be well under control. When doing your treatments, you should only feel a slight warming sensation. At any time if it feels HOT or uncomfortable, discontinue use as you still have too much inflammation and swelling to complete a treatment.
Each 20 minute BFST® Treatment will last only 20 minutes, but the increase in blood flow will last up to four hours. Ideally your treatments should be spaced out throughout the day, so you can promote good blood flow all day long. If you can't do 3-4 treatments a day, your two most important treatments are first thing in the morning, and right before you go to bed. This will ensure that you have a great start to your day and you can rest well at night.
If you are planning on being active throughout the day, complete a BFST® treatment before any type of physical activity. It can be as simple as going for a walk, or even doing the dishes depending on which type of pain you're suffering from. Always assess how you are feeling after your activity, as there's a chance you may need to apply your ColdCure® to treat any new inflammation generated during your activity.
The goal with your BFST® Treatments is not to increase on the levels as quickly as possible, but to condition your circulatory system to allow for the much needed increased blood flow. Staying on the lowest level to where you feel any warmth - remember it's just a slight warmth - will be the most effective way to start healing your Sesamoiditis. When can you move up to the next level? You can move up in levels when you feel barely any warmth from the wrap at all. This means that you've successfully conditioned your circulation and you're ready to move up. Some people can move up in a few weeks, some people it takes a lot longer. It just depends on how well your body adjusts to the increase in 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. Remember, staying on top of your inflammation will allow you to complete more BFST® treatments throughout the day.
Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before doing 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, unless you notice an increase in pain during your BFST® Treatment.
ColdCure® treatments will slow down the blood flow, which isn't ideal, but sometimes necessary to relieve the swelling and inflammation generated. The BFST® will increase your blood flow which is important for faster healing.
KB Support Tape™ is very important to help with your injury recovery. As you move throughout the day, your skin and your tendons move with you. Using the KB Support Tape over your injury will make your skin less flexible - therefore protecting your injury - without restricting your range of motion. KB Support Tape™ can be used at the same time as your BFST® and ColdCure® Treatments without any issues, but try to have your first BFST® treatment of the day without the KB Support Tape™ applied. After your BFST® treatment has been completed, then apply the tape. Removing the tape before the last BFST® treatment of the day will help you rest well at night.
BFST® Wraps are Class II FDA Registered medical devices. This means they meet very high standards of quality, safety and performance. These devices were manufactured and tested to comply with the regulations that the FDA and Health Canada have established. Consumer grade products that you can buy at the store can't say the same. Consumer goods aren't held to the same high standards as medical grade devices like the BFST® Wrap. The FDA and Health Canada hold medical device manufacturers accountable, unlike consumer goods manufacturers whose products are lower quality.
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 EMR energy envelops the affected body part and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. We recommend that everyone starts at Level 1 and works their way through the levels gradually as their Sesamoiditis heals. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up your healing time. You need to condition the body first. When you first start your treatments on Level 1, you may feel a slight warming sensation in the treatment 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 are the heating pads of the future. Heating pads bring blood to the surface of your skin and make it hot to the touch. BFST® Wraps stimulate blood flow deep beneath your skin to repair your damaged tissue. Bringing blood to the surface of your skin does nothing to heal the injury deep below. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your soft tissue injury through the promotion of blood flow. Heating pads can't do this.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Foot device comes inserted inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® to the bottom of your foot and up the back of your heel to target the entire bottom of your foot. This ensures that you receive an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. The wrap comes with a removable Velcro® belt that you can apply around your foot to adjust the fit. The BFST® Wrap does not need to be removed following a treatment. Simply unplug the device and remove the electrical components. This will act as a reminder of your injury and help prevent further damage to your Foot.
Don't stop doing BFST® treatments. Even once your pain is gone, your Foot may only be 20% or 30% healed. You need to continue using the BFST® Wrap for several months after the pain is gone. This will ensure that you maintain the healing you've done and will help you heal further. Once you get back to your regular routine, do a BFST® treatment before you're physically active. This will help prevent re-injury during the activity and will act as a warm up for your circulatory system.
ColdCure® Wraps are Class I FDA Registered medical devices. They exceed all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries. When applied to your foot, 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 contain mushy blue gel. Why? Because RigiGel® packs are like ice, but they stay at 32°F / 0°C. While they may start out at about -4°F / -20°C straight from the freezer, after a few minutes they will go to 32°F / 0°C and stay at 32°F / 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 -4°F / -20°C and rapidly go to 32°F / 0°C, they keep warming up very quickly, instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 32°F / 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 inside the wrap. Once the pack is soft enough to bend, it is ready to use for treatment.
RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula many people follow when dealing with a soft tissue injury like Sesamoiditis. However, most of these people probably aren't aware of how dangerous ice can be. 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. You don't want to apply ice, you 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 3x more gel per lb than other products, for complete coverage of your foot. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs also have 10x more cooling power than other products, meaning longer treatment times without having to swap the gel packs as often. This also means faster relief from pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside plus superior cooling power means an overall better, more effective treatment.
The ColdCure® Foot gel pack is custom designed to mold to the shape of the bottom of your foot and the back of your heel. It covers the entire bottom of the foot to ensure that your injury receives an even distribution of cooling power. All of our gel packs are designed for the specific body part you're treating. We don't just have 1 generic gel pack shape because it wouldn't be able to target all the different areas of the body. Each part of the body is uniquely shaped, and that's why all of our gel packs are uniquely shaped too. This product has 100% been designed to treat the bottom of your foot.
Regular gel packs have hot and cold spots, making treatments uneven and inconsistent. Our unique XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the entire pack. This means the gel pack will always have a perfectly balanced cold temperature. When cold pressure is applied to a foot with Sesamoiditis, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than 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 huge improvement, as your foot will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack.
XC® gel packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides have all the same amazing benefits that XC RigiGel® gel has to offer. XC® gel packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your foot or away from your foot since they are not side specific.

Like all King Brand® products, there simply isn't a better performing option. All King Brand® products come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee. Try our products and if you are not completely impressed, you can send them back for a full refund. We know you will love them though because thousands of people already use them and rave about the results.
The King Brand® products shown are FDA Registered medical devices. That is not all. They are also registered with Health Canada which means they get twice as much review.
FDA and Health Canada Registration does not mean that we fill out a form to become Registered. Our claims are quite significant, and because of these claims the government agencies visit for week-long inspections to ensure that the end user is always receiving the safest effective medical devices we can offer. With two different countries of regulators this means our products get twice the oversight, ensuring exceptional quality and performance.
It is not required but we are also ISO-13485 compliant and registered. This enforces standards are established by the International Standards Organization for global manufacturers of medical devices. This means more on-site week long audits every year ensuring our quality and products meet strict international standards.
It is not required by any regulator, but we use only the safest materials in our products. ISO-10993 regulation ensures that our products are made from higher quality materials than most baby products, including diapers. This is the highest bio-compatibility safety standard in the world. This is the highest hospital grade - think Intensive Care and Operating Rooms. Our materials go through ISO-10993 testing to ensure they are safe for you. No consumer products are produced to this high standard.
King Brand products are, in fact, hospital grade through and through. ISO-60601 is the International Standard for Medical Device safety from an electrical standpoint. In spite of the BFST® being an electrical device, BFST® can be used in hospital emergency rooms and operating rooms without affecting other equipment. You can use any medical device with a BFST® and neither device will know the other one is there. This is a very tough standard to meet, but we do it and you benefit.
King Brand products meet over 20 different safety and quality standards that are not required even for medical devices and FDA registration. If we think there is anything that can be done to make our products safer and more effective, we have done it. That is the approach to everything we do and that is why our company and products are so highly regarded.
