One Super Important Fact:
Common treatments for Trochanteric Bursitis, such as aspiration and cortisone injections, only address the symptoms, not the root cause. While aspiration may bring down the inflammation of your bursa, it won't get rid of the problem for good. Cortisone shots mask the pain and do nothing to address the condition itself. And they also come with some pretty serious risks.
Rapid Recovery for Trochanteric Bursitis
We know that you're tired of treatments that only provide symptomatic relief for your Trochanteric Bursitis, without doing anything for the condition itself. We know that you'd rather not have to resort to surgery in order to get rid of your Bursitis for good. You're looking for a conservative treatment that's going to relieve your pain and improve your mobility, with a reduced chance of your Bursitis coming back. Thankfully, King Brand® BFST® and ColdCure® medical devices will do just that.
The Ultimate Solution:
If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.
- Wear a ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap as much as possible to relieve your pain and protect your bursa from further aggravation.
- Use the BFST® Back/Hip Wrap first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help reduce stiffness and restore motion to the hip.
- Avoid re-straining your hip as much as possible. KB Support Tape can help with this. Giving your body a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and you can relieve your hip pain and get rid of your Trochanteric Bursitis - finally.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Recovery
Your situation is not hopeless. You can recover from Trochanteric Bursitis. You just need the right treatment. You need to stimulate additional blood flow to regain proper movement of your hip. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
A hip with Trochanteric Bursitis normally has very limited blood flow. BFST® Wraps help to restore function by promoting blood flow to the affected area of your hip, deep below the skin. While physical activity is one way to promote blood flow, this can further aggravate the bursa. BFST® stimulates nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow while you're at rest. This allows you to rest and avoid further aggravation while improving your circulation at the same time. You won't find this technology anywhere else.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices improve circulation.
The BFST® Back/Hip Wrap is exactly what you need to improve your mobility and get rid of your Trochanteric Bursitis for good. Trochanteric Bursitis causes reduced blood flow in the hip. By using the BFST® Wrap, you're stimulating the optimal blood flow your hip needs to keep moving, with a decreased chance of your Trochanteric Bursitis coming back.
Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery, which is why BFST® treatments are so important. We recommend doing 3-4 BFST® treatments per day. It's best to spread your treatments out over the course of your day, as the effects of each treatment last for up to 4 hours. An ideal treatment regimen would be one treatment first thing in the morning, another treatment in the afternoon, a treatment in the evening, and the last treatment of the day right before bed. BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. You may experience a slight warming sensation and/or a tingling sensation as the BFST® starts the blood flowing.
The BFST® Back/Hip 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 hip with light, comfortable compression between treatments. This constant pressure over your hip will work to reduce the inflammation of your bursa throughout the day, so you're working to get rid of it even between your treatments. This is an extremely valuable feature of the Back/Hip Wrap and helps contribute to a much faster recovery.
Dealing With Pain
Trochanteric Bursitis is often extremely painful and debilitating, causing us to reach for painkillers as a quick fix. 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. Cortisone injections are often used to address the symptoms of Trochanteric Bursitis but they don't treat the condition itself and can put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Painkillers Only Make Things Worse
Painkillers mask the pain, making it easy to forget to rest your hip. Without fail this causes people to overstress and further aggravate their bursa, making their Trochanteric Bursitis worse. 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 resting. Using painkillers when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Use a ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap from King Brand® and avoid the dangers of painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps are much safer and more effective than painkillers. Actually, they're superior in every way. For one, ColdCure® Wraps work faster. As soon as you put the ColdCure® Wrap on, you will feel the cool, soothing relief. With painkillers, you have to wait 20 minutes before they start working. Since the wrap is specially designed for the hip, it does an incredible job of targeting the area to deliver fast-acting pain relief.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the pain and swelling that comes with Trochanteric Bursitis, nothing works better than cold and compression.
ColdCure® Wraps were designed to address the need for a cold compression device that does not cause cold burns. Our gel packs pose no threat of freezing your skin or underlying tissue. 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® Back/Hip Wrap is made entirely of very soft, stretchy material. It comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible. Unlike gooey gel that moves around inside the pack, our gel stays in place. It conforms to your hip area for an even, consistent treatment every 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.
Protect Your Hip Between Treatments
When you're not doing BFST® or ColdCure® treatments, your bursa becomes vulnerable to further aggravation. You don't want to make your Trochanteric Bursitis worse than it already is. Apply KB Support Tape to the your hip 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 - Use All Day During Work & Play
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 styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These styles also come in 4 different colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your personal style.
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 injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.
The above application was applied over clothing for demonstration purposes only. When using this application, apply it directly to your skin.
While we found the above application to be effective for Trochanteric Bursitis, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for Trochanteric Bursitis to 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 feel the pain in a specific area of your hip, apply the tape there.
The Medical Tape Advantage
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.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape
BFST® for Rapid Healing
ColdCure® for Pain & Swelling
KB Tape to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape between 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. This results in the absolute best treatment for your Trochanteric Bursitis.
Step 1: Relieve the Pain
Use the ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap several times a day to help relieve your pain and reduce any inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue. Continue to do regular ColdCure® treatments until your pain is nearly all gone. This usually takes about 2-10 days, depending on the severity of your Trochanteric Bursitis.
Step 2: Improve Mobility
Use the BFST® Back/Hip Wrap to stimulate additional blood flow in your hip. This will help you regain the proper movement of your hip joint by reducing the stiffness caused by Trochanteric Bursitis.
Introduce BFST® treatments slowly. If you experience any pain or discomfort during BFST® treatments, go back to doing ColdCure® treatments for several days.
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 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 the injured area (Ex. walking or standing for long periods of time). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow.
Step 3: Treat Flare-Ups
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. 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.
Step 4: Use KB Support Tape
Any time you're not doing a BFST® or ColdCure® treatment, wear KB Support Tape on your hip. 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.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. They're made with medical grade materials and comply with several different standards and regulations. This includes ensuring safe, effective treatments. Medical devices are held to much higher standards than consumer grade products, because unlike consumer goods, BFST® Wraps are 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, low levels of EMR energy envelop your hip area 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 Trochanteric Bursitis 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 hip 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 hip 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 the heating pads of the future. Instead of bringing blood flow to the surface of your skin and making it hot to the touch like a heating pad does, BFST® promotes blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath your skin. Bringing blood to the surface does nothing to heal the tissues deep below. By stimulating additional blood flow in the affected area, this works to help the damaged tissues heal. Heating pads can't do this, but BFST® can.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Back/Hip device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The Wrap molds the Energy Web® around your hip to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire affected area. There are long, wide straps attached to the wrap that allow you to adjust the fit for your body shape. 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 hip. It also provides constant pressure to help relieve the inflammation of your bursa.
Complete the Healing Process
When you're recovering from Trochanteric Bursitis, the pain ends long before you've regained movement of your hip. In fact, the pain is usually gone once you're 20-30% healed. The recovery 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 hip is still healing. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to regain full movement of your hip joint. Doing regular BFST® treatments for 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 tape your hip to help prevent re-injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
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. What most of these people probably don't realize is that there are serious dangers associated with ice. The truth is that 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. 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 hip. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than ordinary gel packs. This means they stay cold longer, allowing for extended treatment durations. It also means faster relief of pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside plus superior cooling power means an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Back/Hip gel packs are custom designed to conform to your hip. This means you always get an even distribution of cooling power over your bursa. 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. Every part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why all of our gel packs are uniquely shaped too. This product has been 100% designed to treat Trochanteric Bursitis.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
Ordinary gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® packs distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to a hip with Trochanteric Bursitis, 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 means your hip will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack, every time. The temperature-balancing power of these gel packs 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 hip or away from your hip since they're not side specific.
