Treatment Questions / Re: ColdCure Wrap and BFST Wrap for foot question
« on: October 11, 2019, 02:04:01 PM »
Hi Josh,

Thank you for letting us know about this. There are a number of different reasons that your feet would be sweating. Lets start with how you're using the products and we can work from there.

1) With your BFST Treatments, what is your treatment schedule like? What times during the day are you using the wraps?

2) How loose or tight are you wrapping the BFST around your foot?

3) Does the BFST feel warm or hot?

4) Do you notice any pain in your feet either before or after the treatments?

5) How often are you incorporating the ColdCure into your day? What is your indicator that it's required? Are you using the ColdCure before or after the BFST treatment?

6) Is there any other general information that you could provide that you feel relevant to the conversation.

Thank you,
Megan

Thank you WillieCes for your comments.

Usually when you're in pain, you do not want to push your body further as this is a clear sign that your body is asking you to stop as you could potentially be creating further damage.

Keep in mind that sometimes you need to take a few days off to recover and evaluate how you feel each day before doing physical activity (strenuous or not). If it hurts, don't do it!

If you find that you're in more pain, please apply Cold to reduce the inflammation that's causing that increase in pain and this will make you more comfortable.

I hope this helps.

Thank you Andy for reaching out to us. At this current time we currently manufacture the BFST and ColdCure for soft tissue recovery. We don't have any ability to branch out to new product lines like baseball gloves.

If you would like any more information, please don't hesitate to call us or to send me a PM.

Thanks,
Megan

Good morning Josh,

As a general rule, you can always complete a BFST treatment when you have no swelling or inflammation present. If you have completed enough ColdCure treatments where you are not feeling a lot of pain, and you don't have visible swelling I would definitely start your BFST treatments. The goal overall for increased healing times is to complete as many BFST treatments as you can throughout the day.

Some days may be better than others where you will not need as many ColdCure treatments, while other days (where you've been on your feet for a long period of time) you might generate more inflammation and will focus more on ColdCure treatments.

Here is a quick reference guide for completing Combination Treatments with both the BFST and ColdCure Wraps: https://www.kingbrand.com/forum/index.php?topic=1081.0

Please let me know if you have any further questions - and remember you can always call in to a Treatment Advisor as well at 844-400-2525

Best regards,
Megan

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.

Step 1: Reduce Swelling and Inflammation

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.

Step 2: Heal Your Injury

Introduce your BFST® treatments slowly, once your swelling and inflammation is 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.

If you are planning on being active throughout the day, complete a BFST® treatment before any type of physical activity.  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. 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.

Step 3: Treat Flare-Ups - Timing is Important

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 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.

Step 4: Use KB Support Tape

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.
