If you have a Tennis injury, the medical devices below are the solution to your problem. These medical devices will relieve your pain and accelerate the healing process, so you can focus on the match while they focus on getting you better. It doesn't matter where you've been injured - we have medical devices for every area of the body. King Brand Healthcare Products® will get your body back to peak performance so you can keep playing like a king.
The fast-paced nature of Tennis can be demanding on the body, resulting in injuries in the upper extremities (shoulder, elbow, wrist), lower extremities (knee, leg, ankle, foot) and trunk (back, hips). You could try to take time off from Tennis, but if you want to keep playing and heal faster, you need a more proactive solution. You need our BFST® and ColdCure® medical devices.
Do this and your Tennis injury can truly heal - finally.
Use our ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps to heal your Tennis injury as quickly and completely as possible. Start with the ColdCure® Wrap first. ColdCure® treatments will relieve the pain and inflammation of your injury. Do regular ColdCure® treatments throughout the day until your pain and swelling are under control. This will take 2-10 days depending on the severity of your injury.
Once your pain and swelling has subsided, you can start using the BFST® Wrap. BFST® treatments stimulate blood flow in the area of your injury, deep below the skin. This works to heal your damaged tissues. Treatments are simple and easy: plug the device in, turn it on and rest. Do a BFST® treatment before you train or do any exercise as this will help prevent the risk of re-injury. The effects of every 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, meaning that you're still receiving the healing benefits of optimum blood flow after your treatment has ended.
Wear KB Support Tape over your injury when you're playing Tennis to provide your injured tissue with additional support and protection. KB Support Tape provides comfortable compression during all of your daily activities without restricting your movement.
Stop wasting your time on treatments that don't yield any results. You can heal your Tennis injury with the correct treatment. You need to promote blood flow to the injured area and speed up the healing process. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to your injury. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissue. Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately, an injury at rest often has restricted blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. BFST® Wraps are the solution to this problem. They're designed to speed up the healing process while you're at rest. This means you're getting the additional blood flow your tissue needs to heal while avoiding re-injury at the same time.
Tennis injuries can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing you to take painkillers to find some relief. 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 only mask the pain, causing people to re-injure themselves and start the healing process all over again from the beginning. They don't do anything to treat the injury itself. Respect the pain and use it as a guide. The pain is there to prevent you from making the injury worse. If you need to take painkillers, try to limit them to times when you're at rest. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
ColdCure® Wraps are a safe, effective alternative to painkillers. They do an amazing job of relieving the pain and swelling associated with Tennis injuries, without any of the risks associated with painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps also work much faster than painkillers, which take 20 minutes to kick in. As soon as you apply the ColdCure® Wrap to your injury, you will feel the cool, soothing relief as it absorbs the pain and tension.
When you're not doing treatments with your ColdCure® or BFST® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your injury worse. Apply KB Support Tape to the injured area between treatments. This will help you avoid re-injury and provide the injured area with added protection and support.
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.
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 diapers, clothing and toys. Don't let the big brand tapes fool you. Most of them are made with highly 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.
When you're recovering from a Tennis injury, the pain ends long before you've finished healing. In fact, the pain is usually gone once your tissue is about 20% 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 injury 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 using KB Support Tape on the injured area to prevent re-injury.
Tennis Elbow is probably the most well-known Tennis injury because of the name. Tennis Elbow (or Lateral Epicondylitis) occurs when the tendons on the outside of the elbow become inflamed and irritated, usually due to overuse. In Tennis, this is likely caused by serving, hitting and other repetitive arm movements. Another elbow injury seen in Tennis participants is Golfer's Elbow. Don't be fooled by the name - Golfer's Elbow (or Medial Epicondylitis) isn't exclusive to people who play Golf. It's another overuse injury of the elbow, but affects the tendons on the inside of the elbow rather than the outside.
Use our ColdCure® and BFST® Elbow Wraps to relieve your pain and swelling and speed the healing of your injury. The Elbow Wraps are custom designed for the shape of the elbow, to target the exact area of your injury. They provide complete coverage of the elbow area, so you always have an even distribution of energy or cooling power over your injury. These wraps conform comfortably to your elbow, as well as the areas above, below and to either side. Whether your injury is located on the inside or outside of your elbow, these wraps will have you covered.
Back conditions such as Sciatica and Herniated Discs are quite common in Tennis players. These injuries are usually caused by the combination of rotation, extension and flexion involved in serving. The lower back is the area most often injured, especially the Sacroiliac.
Relieve the pain and swelling and accelerate the healing of your back injury with our ColdCure® and BFST® Back Wraps. These Wraps can be worn on any area of your back to target the exact location of your injury. They can be applied to your lower back, mid-back, upper back or hips to provide your damaged tissue with cooling power or blood flow.
If you need more coverage for your back injury, use our ColdCure® Large Body Wrap. It has a massive treatment area of 16" x 16", meaning you can almost treat your entire back all at once. The coverage with the Large Body Wrap is huge. You can treat your lower, mid and upper back at the same time. More coverage means more cooling power and more relief. This Wrap is perfect for people who have multiple back issues or injuries that are too large to treat with a standard size product. It comes with 2 extra large gel packs, so you can have one inside the wrap for treatment while the other one charges in the freezer. This Wrap isn't designed for the back alone - you can use it to treat other areas of your body that are sore from playing Tennis. You can wrap your arms, legs, abdomen, etc!
The Knee injuries Tennis players most commonly sustain are IT Band Syndrome, Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper's Knee), Meniscus tears, and knee ligament injuries (ACL, MCL, LCL). Knee injuries in Tennis are likely caused by the rapid stopping, pivoting and sprinting movements involved in the sport.
Our ColdCure® and BFST® Knee Wraps are exactly what you need to stop the pain and speed up your recovery. These Wraps were designed with a unique U-shaped treatment area that can be applied to your knee to target your injury perfectly. They cover both sides of your knee as well as above or below your kneecap, depending on the area of your knee that's injured. The ColdCure® Wrap will help to bring down your inflammation and control the pain. The BFST® Wrap works to actively heal your damaged tissue by bringing healthy, high quality blood flow to the area of your injury, deep below the skin.
Wrist injuries in Tennis are due to overuse, which causes the tendons and/or ligaments to become inflamed and irritated. The Wrist injuries most commonly sustained in Tennis are Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Extensor Carpi Ulnaris Tendonitis and De Quervain's Tenosynovitis.
The BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps are extremely versatile, allowing you to apply them to virtually any area of your hand, wrist or fingers. You can wear the Wraps to target the top and underside of your wrist, the top of your hand or the inside of your palm, or further down your forearm. Apply the wrap to your injury to provide your damaged tissues with cold therapy or blood flow stimulation. These are the two treatments you need to relieve your pain and repair the damage that's been done to your wrist.
Much like the Knee injuries seen in Tennis, Leg injuries are also caused by the fast paced movements involved in the sport. The Leg injuries usually seen in Tennis include Shin Splints and Hamstring or Calf strains or tears.
The BFST® and ColdCure® Leg Wraps are designed to be universal, meaning they can be used on several different areas of the body. For the Legs, they can be applied on the calf, thigh, shin, the back of the knee - wherever your injury is located. If you want to return to playing in top form, these are the products you need. The ColdCure® Wrap uses an effective combination of cold and compression to relieve your pain and bring your swelling down. The BFST® Wrap promotes blood flow to the injured area of your leg to accelerate healing. When you're not using your wraps, apply KB Support Tape to the injured area of your leg. This will provide your injury with added support and protection, to help prevent further damage to your tissue.
The Shoulder injuries most commonly associated with Tennis are Rotator Cuff strains or tears, Shoulder Impingement and Frozen Shoulder. Much the same as Elbow injuries, repeated overhead motions will cause Shoulder injuries in Tennis.
We have two different Shoulder Wraps that target two different areas. The Top Shoulder Wraps are designed to target injuries in the top of the shoulder. The Side Shoulder Wraps are designed to target injuries in the side of the shoulder. Generally speaking, if you have a Deltoid injury or Upper Bicep Tendonitis, you should use the Side Shoulder Wraps. If you happen to have a Supraspinatus or Infraspinatus injury, or a case of Frozen Shoulder, use should use the Top Shoulder Wraps. It all depends on what area you need to target. Rotator Cuff injuries are a little more tricky, as it depends on which part of the Rotator Cuff is injured. Pay attention to where the pain is. Is it closer to the "top" or the "side"? Take a look at the coverage zone image above to help you determine which wrap would best target your injury.
Our Side Shoulder Wraps are uniquely designed to target injuries located in the side of the shoulder. This ensures the best treatment and coverage possible. The Side Shoulder Wraps cover your deltoid, rotator cuff and the upper portion of your bicep. This is usually a difficult area to treat, but these Wraps will mold comfortably to the entire side of your shoulder with no gaps. The 3 Extension Straps (Small, Medium & Large) included with the Side Shoulder Wraps allow you to customize the fit. Use these Wraps to eliminate the pain and inflammation and accelerate the healing of your Rotator Cuff injuries, Upper Bicep Tendonitis, Deltoid injuries, and any other soft tissue injuries in the side of your shoulder.
The Top Shoulder Wraps are ideal for use on injuries located in the top of the shoulder. The Top Shoulder Wraps cover your scapula, collar bone, rotator cuff and the top of your deltoid. These Wraps will relieve the pain and swelling and speed the healing of your Rotator Cuff injuries, Supraspinatus and Infraspinatus injuries, as well as any other muscle, tendon or ligament injuries in the top of your shoulder. Just like the Side Shoulder Wraps, the Top Shoulder Wraps also come with 3 Extension Straps (Small, Medium & Large) that you can attach to adjust the size and fit.
Ankle Sprains are usually sustained when moving from side-to-side repeatedly, or when coming to an abrupt stop on the court. Achilles Tendonitis and Posterior Tibial Tendonitis can also develop as a result of overuse.
We have ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps that target two different areas of the ankle. The Ankle Wraps are for the front and sides of your ankle (the top of your foot). The Achilles Wraps are for the back of your ankle.
If you have Achilles Tendonitis, we recommend our Achilles Wraps. The Achilles Wraps cover the back of your ankle and are designed to treat Achilles Tendonitis and other injuries located in the back of the ankle. The Wrap molds the gel pack or Energy Web® all the way up the back of your ankle to target your Achilles and ensure there is an even distribution of energy or cooling power over the injured area. The ColdCure® Wrap delivers soothing relief from pain and inflammation. The BFST® Wrap will work to actively heal your Achilles injury through blood flow stimulation.
If you have an Ankle Sprain or Posterior Tibial Tendonitis, we recommend our Ankle Wraps. The Ankle Wraps cover the front and sides of your ankle and are designed to treat Ankle Sprains, Peroneal Tendonitis, Tibialis Anterior Tendonitis and Extensor Tendonitis. The Wrap is custom designed to mold around the top and down the sides of your ankle for maximum coverage of your injury. Use the ColdCure® Wrap to bring down the swelling and get rid of the pain in your ankle. Use the BFST® Wrap to promote healthy blood flow to your injured ankle and speed up the healing process.
Plantar Fasciitis and Metatarsalgia can develop in Tennis players because of the stress the sport puts on the feet.
The BFST® and ColdCure® Foot Wraps target the bottom of the foot - they cover the entire sole of your foot, as well as up the back of your heel. The Foot Wraps go on like a slipper and come with a Velcro® belt attached that will help you adjust the fit. BFST® and ColdCure® Wraps are the ideal treatment for Plantar Fasciitis and Metatarsalgia. The ColdCure® Wrap will absorb the pain and tension, while the BFST® Wrap will increase your blood flow to help your foot heal. Wear KB Support Tape between treatments and while you're playing to prevent re-injury.

While one of our Advisors will follow up with you directly, you are welcome to contact us if you need any help. We truly care about your recovery.
Combination Therapy means combining ColdCure® and BFST® 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®, as well as the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Tennis injury.
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 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 per day, spread throughout the day. During the day, do a BFST® treatment every 4 hours or before any type of physical activity. This can be anything that puts a strain on the injured area. 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 physical activity to prevent further injury and reduce swelling and inflammation. 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment, follow with 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. 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 ColdCure® or BFST® treatment, wear KB Support Tape over the injured area. 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 the Tape has been removed at the end of the day.
While regular gel packs have hot and cold spots, our gel packs always have an evenly balanced cold temperature. Our unique XC RigiGel® formula eliminates hot spots by distributing the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. This means your injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack during every treatment. The amazing temperature-balancing power of XC RigiGel® can only be found in a ColdCure® Wrap!
XC Gel® packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides will have all the same benefits that our outstanding XC RigiGel® formula has to offer! XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the pack with the white side facing towards your injury or away from your injury since they're not side specific.
