Being a triathlete is hard on many areas of your body due to the combination of swimming, cycling and running. The intensity required in training and competing means that overtraining and overuse injuries are especially common in triathletes. While resting your injury is advised in order to prevent further damage, rest alone won't result in a speedy recovery. If you want to heal faster so you can get back to training and competing in a reduced amount of time, you need the same tools that the professionals use. You need our ColdCure® and BFST® medical devices.
Do this and your Triathlon injury can truly heal - finally.
Use our ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps to heal your Triathlon 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 promote blood flow to the area of your injury, deep below the skin. This works to heal your damaged tissues. Do a BFST® before your events or any time you exercise as this will help prevent the risk of re-injury. The effects of each 20 minute 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.
For added support and protection while you compete, apply KB Support Tape to the injured area. This lightweight, comfortable tape can be worn during all of your daily activities and it won't get in the way or restrict your movement.
You can heal your Triathlon injury. Stop wasting your time on treatments that don't work. You can heal your injury much more quickly with the correct treatment. When it comes to soft tissue injuries, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) provides your injury with the blood flow it needs to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to your injury. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your injury. Healthy, high-quality blood flow is essential for a fast recovery. However, an injury at rest often has very limited blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, this can cause 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 damaged tissue needs to heal while avoiding re-injury at the same time.
Triathlon injuries can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing you to reach for painkillers time and time again. 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 don't do anything to treat the injury itself. They only mask the pain, which gets rid of the reminder and causes people to re-injure themselves and make their injury even worse, resulting in a much longer recovery time. If you need to take painkillers, try to limit their use to times when you are at rest. For instance, 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 Triathlon 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 since 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.
Keep doing BFST® treatments even after you think you've healed. The healing process takes much longer than most people realize. Even after you "feel better", your injury may only be 20% or 30% healed. If you want your injury to heal completely, you need to continue doing BFST® treatments for several months after the pain is gone. Do a BFST® treatment before any physical activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system. You should also continue to apply KB Support Tape to the injured area, as this will help prevent re-injury.
The most common swimming injury triathletes face is Swimmer's Shoulder. Lower back, knee, foot, ankle and wrist injuries are also seen, but are not nearly as common. While some instances of Swimmer's Shoulder are caused by improper form, most are just overuse injuries caused by the repetitive overhead motions performed when swimming. Swimmer's Shoulder doesn't describe an injury to one specific area of the shoulder. Rather, it's used as a catchall for tendon, ligament and muscle injuries in the shoulder. Swimmer's Shoulder is also known as impingement syndrome.
The injuries most often sustained by triathletes in cycling are to the lower back, hamstrings, knees (Patellar Tendonitis) and wrists/hands (Handlebar Palsy, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, de Quervain's Tenosynovitis). Hand and wrist injuries from cycling are usually caused by holding the handlebars of your bike too tightly or from the vibrations felt through the handlebars. Hamstring and knee injuries (or any other injuries in your legs) are likely caused by the heavy use of the legs in the sport. Back injuries sustained in cycling can be caused by improper seat height or poor posture. However, since many cyclists' legs are stronger than their upper bodies, back injuries can result from the strain this causes.
The most common injuries triathletes sustain in running are Runner's Knee (Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome), IT Band Syndrome, Jumper's Knee (Patellar Tendonitis), Shin Splints, Achilles Tendonitis, Ankle Sprains, Hip Flexor injuries, Plantar Fasciitis, Metatarsalgia and Meniscus injuries. Runner's Knee is the number one injury seen in runners. It's also often misdiagnosed as ITBS or Jumper's Knee. Runner's Knee occurs when the femoral groove (place where your kneecap rests on your thighbone) becomes irritated and inflamed, causing pain and weakness in the knee. Runner's Knee is usually caused by the general strain that running puts on your knees, but could also be due to an increase in training or mileage.
Use our BFST® Knee Wrap to speed up the healing of your knee injury. The Knee Wrap will bring high-quality blood flow to the area of your injury to help heal the damaged tissues. This is exactly what your body needs to heal properly and quickly. The Knee Wrap has a unique U-shaped treatment area that will perfectly target the area of your injury.
Use our BFST® Back Wrap to provide your injury with the healthy blood flow it needs to heal. It doesn't matter which area of your back is injured - you can wear the Back Wrap on your lower back, hips, mid-back or upper back. The Back Wrap is completely adjustable and has Velcro® straps attached that ensure a perfect fit.
We have two different Shoulder Wraps that target two different areas. The Top Shoulder Wrap is designed to target injuries in the top of the shoulder. The Side Shoulder Wrap is designed to target injuries in the side of the shoulder. Generally speaking, if you have a Delotid 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, you 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 determine which wrap would better target your injury.
Use our BFST® Top Shoulder Wrap to bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to the injured area in the top of your shoulder, deep beneath the skin. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal the damage in your ligaments, tendons and muscles. BFST® treatments not only work to heal you, they're also incredibly relaxing. Do 3-4 treatments per day, spread out throughout the day for best results.
Our BFST® Side Shoulder Wrap is custom designed for the side of the shoulder. It stimulates high-quality blood flow in the area of your injury, deep below the skin. This increase in blood flow works to heal your damaged tissues. The treatment area covers the deltoid, rotator cuff and the upper portion of your bicep.
Use the BFST® Leg Wrap to promote blood flow to your injury and speed up the healing process. The Leg Wrap was designed with versatility in mind. It can be applied to your calf, thighs, shins - anywhere on your leg. BFST® treatments will help to improve your circulation and repair your damaged tissues so you can get back to doing what you love.
Use the BFST® Wrist Wrap to bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to your injured tendons. This increase in blood flow will create an ideal environment for healing. This is the treatment your wrist tendons and ligaments need to heal. The Wrist Wrap is comfortable and easy to apply. To heal as quickly as possible, do 3-4 treatments per day, spread out over the course of your day.
The BFST® Foot Wrap will improve the circulation in the bottom of your foot. This will work to heal your damaged tissue and speed up your recovery. You can't find this technology anywhere else. Other treatments that stretch your plantar fascia, like foam rollers and night splints, will only cause more pain and more damage.
Use the BFST® Achilles Wrap to heal your Achilles Tendonitis or other injuries in the back of your ankle. The BFST® device will bring additional blood flow to the area of your injury, deep below the skin. It penetrates deep down to the soft tissue to heal the damage and improve your circulation, so you can get back to your usual self in a reduced amount of time.
Use our BFST® Ankle Wrap to heal your Ankle Sprain, Peroneal Tendonitis or any other injury located in the front and sides of your ankle. BFST® treatments are warm, soothing and relaxing. They're designed to actually heal the tissue damage that's been done to your ankle through blood flow stimulation. This is a completely unique therapy you can only find here.

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 Triathlon 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.
