You don't have to suffer. You don't have to wait.
All YOU simply need is the right treatment.
The shoulder can be hard to target. It describes a big area and has a large range of motion. "Shoulder Injuries" can be up high near the neck, or a lot to the front or back of the chest. Also, injuries to the upper half of the arm can be referred to as shoulder injuries. Depending on where your injury is, you want to pick the right product for you.
Option 1 - The "Top Shoulder" products target the torso part of your shoulder by design, be it the back or front or top.
Option 2 - The "Side Shoulder" products work best for the arm part of the shoulder, targeting the front back and side of the deltoid from the top of the arm to the top of your bicep.
Option 3 - We also recommend you consider our universal "Back" products. You can use them all over your body; particularly the BFST®, because it doesn't need to be snug when worn as long as it's over top of the injury. For the ColdCure® products the back can cover most areas but it isn't always as snug as the shoulder products which are designed for that body part... and with ColdCure® snug helps when treating pain and swelling.
If your injury is localized to one of the areas shown by the shoulder diagrams, and you only have a shoulder injury, one of those options is probably the most effective one for you. If you're looking to cover a greater area or just want to be able to use the product on your shoulder and other parts of your body the Back is a really great choice.
Our shoulder products have gone through a lot of design refinements over the years. There's both a top and side shoulder product because we've worked hard to perfect the design. The unique designs ensure treatment is both targeted and deliver compression during ColdCure® treatments. As a result, the shoulder products have a few extra straps and fasteners than our other designs. So, the first time you put on your shoulder product you will spend some time adjusting the fit and fidgeting with the straps so it is nice and snug for your personal body size and shape. Honestly, it will be very helpful to have someone to help you with the first fitting of the shoulder wrap. Your injury takes away some of your arm mobility and range so that adds to the challenge of doing it yourself. But with a little help the first time, you can achieve exactly the right fit for you. Once you've got it perfectly adjusted you will be able to just slip it on and off each time afterwards without having to do adjustments. After the first fitting you will be able to use it easily on your own.
The BFST® and ColdCure® Top Shoulder Wraps are designed to treat injuries and conditions in the top of the shoulder. This includes Rotator Cuff injuries, Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus Tendonitis, Frozen Shoulder and Labrum Tears. They're custom designed to cover your scapula, collar bone, rotator cuff and the top of your deltoid to ensure complete coverage of your injury.

Injuries can often lead to other parts of your body aching as you attempt to compensate for your injury. Professional grade units that can unknot tense tissue and free you from the pain and stiffness. Lots of people feel tension in their back, and their shoulders. Muscle pain can ruin your day and it can ruin your sleep. If you haven't used a professional massager before, it's time you try one.
Avoid re-injury and a lengthened recovery time by using the King Brand® Accessory Sling. The Accessory Sling is designed to immobilize your shoulder and arm, helping you avoid the painful movements that can lead to re-injury. The Accessory Sling solves this problem by limiting movement of the injured area, which greatly contributes to a faster healing time.
This Rechargeable Battery Pack is designed to make your BFST Wrap completely mobile. It attaches anywhere on your wrap by using the Velcro patch included, and can be used between 10-15 treatments, depending on what level you're on. This means you can do your treatments wherever you go!, all without being plugged in. Use it wherever the day takes you.
KB Support Tape is exactly what you need to help prevent re-injury between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments. It's also ideal for providing your tissue with additional support and protection during physical activity. KB Support Tape can be worn during all of your daily activities without getting in the way or 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, while the 3 inch wide style is better for larger areas. This also applies to your size. Larger 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 3 different colors: Blue, Black & Beige. The 3 inch Tape is available in Black & Beige as well. There is no difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your personal 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.
Applying the KB Support Tape is easy. The tape stretches along its length. Stretch the pieces about half their stretch when you apply each piece. To apply the KB Support Tape™ to your shoulder, you will need 2 pieces of tape; one 8" piece, and one 5" piece. The 8" piece of tape will be applied along the length of your shoulder (from your neck towards your shoulder joint) with the center of the tape covering your most painful spot. The 5" piece will go across the long piece, so the center of this piece of tape is also covering your painful area. This will make a T or X pattern once applied.
When you are done, the two pieces of tape will cross over where you're feeling the pain. Over time, try modifying your unique taping method to ensure that you're getting the best support. You'll know the best taping style because you'll really notice how much less your shoulder hurts through the day when you have it right. 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 shoulder, apply the tape to that area.
Our Shoulder Wraps are the most customizable wrap that we manufacture. This was done with comfort in mind. Every shoulder is shaped differently, so we've created a fully customizable wrap to help ensure the most comfortable treatments, each and every time.
Setting up the wrap for the first time takes a little bit of time in order to get the adjustable Velcro pieces in your perfect position. Having restricted range of motion in your shoulder from your injury is quite common, so having a second pair of hands to help put the wrap on for the first time is important. You want to ensure that no matter what, you are careful to not re-injure your shoulder.
Megan was FABULOUS! She listened attentively and treated me as if I was the most important customer in the world! She answered all of my questions and then some! She was very knowledgeable about your products and offered advice on how to use them to get maximum results! She even called back after we were accidentally disconnected. I have high hopes to going back to living life without this all consuming pain.

Physiotherapists and doctors recommend stretching and strengthening exercises because it helps to promote blood flow through your injured shoulder. But, it can be harmful if stretching and exercises are started too early. Your injury first needs to stabilize, and in order to stabilize the injury you need to rest. As you know, when you rest, your blood flow slows down which doesn't help your injury heal which is why BFST is so important early on.
At the beginning of your injury, even before the injury has had a chance to stabilize, long before you start physio, the ColdCure® Wraps will help keep the pain and swelling under control. The BFST® will increase blood flow to get the healing process started. Because you don't have to move to use them, the King Brand BFST® and ColdCure® Wraps can be started any time. The earlier the better!
Don't start Physical Therapy until your condition has stabilized. When you start, if you feel pain during or after PT speak up! PT is not supposed to hurt and if it does you may be re-injuring your shoulder.
Use your ColdCure® wrap after any heavy activity and after PT. Use the BFST® before PT and before any other heavy activity. The KB Support Tape™ should be applied every morning and worn all day long to help prevent re-injury, including to PT. For many people, King Brand® products, used in the comfort of your own home, are all that is required without having to attend and pay for Physical Therapy appointments.

The cold compression really makes it feel so much better. My husband is even using it, which is nice because he's a big guy and I'm kind of small, so we can share it with the straps you provided, which is working out great. Thanks for a great product!

A very important part of treating your shoulder injury is to use the ColdCure® Wrap 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. You can use it several times a day. Use it anytime you want pain relief and after any significant exercise of your shoulder even if it doesn't hurt afterward.
You should rely more heavily on ColdCure® treatments immediately after exercise because the inflammation will continue to re-develop when you are active. Being aggressive with back to back cold treatments after exercise will give your body a chance to get ahead of the inflammation, and prepare your shoulder for the blood flow that's needed to help heal quickly.
Introduce your BFST® treatments at your less active times of day and before significant exercise. Keep your swelling and inflammation under control with ColdCure® but do not use ColdCure® and BFST® close together. Use BFST® in the morning, before bed, and after longer periods of resting your injury. 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 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 doing housework. 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 activities.
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 shoulder. 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 provide the best results.
When you're recovering from a shoulder injury, the pain ends long before you've finished healing. In fact, the pain is usually gone once your tissue is about 20-30% healed. The entire 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 shoulder 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 use KB Support Tape to help protect the affected area from re-injury.
King Brand® soft tissue rehabilitation medical products are the #1 choice of top Athletic Therapists and Medical Practitioners worldwide. We provide guaranteed results and customer satisfaction. Like all King Brand® products, there simply isn't a better performing option. All King Brand® products come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee.

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.
