Thanks KingBrand for a great product! I'm still feeling good-working out everyday.... I use the wrist bfst wrap to heal quick if I reinjure my wrist--and on top of that I got 2 back bfst wraps one for me and one for mom---for when those aches and pains flare up---your products have helped us heal our injuries..many thanks!
Peeps with the TFCC tear you're in the right place! Be persistent!

tools for success below...
1.) KB BFST (try to do 3 treatments a day if poss. (1st thing in morning, when you get home from work, and at night before bed)
2.) Wrist Widget (during the day while working)
3.) Light exercise (try NOT to target the wrist)--Just focus on getting the muscles surrounding as strong as possible (chest, back, biceps, triceps workouts with lower weight (10-20 lbs))
4.) a drugstore wrist brace that isn't too restrictive for sleeping in...
5.) a positive can-do attitude!

All my Best to you in 2018 and beyond
virtual hugs...

guys I have been working out with 10 and 20 pound dumbbells every day for the last 3 months or so--I do chest and arms one day and back the next just quick 10-15 minute sessions but everyday--that has helped me greatly as well--I feel the strength coming back and the injury slowly fading away. I wanted to mention this as working out in this manner ( as opposed to targeted wrist PT) has aided in my recovery so much--where the wrist PT was ok but seemed to make things worse on occasion. These general workout sessions have been much better for me than the wrist PT. These workout sessions (in addition to KB and the WW) have provided me with the answer to my painful TFCC tear.

Hope this thread helps someone out there don't give up!

This thread got over 10,000 views wow--good we are helping people---OK I'm pretty much good to go now the pain has subsided for the most part most days--everything looks and feels a lot better now my wrist is finally healed! (well mostly). Thanks to Kingbrand for a wonderful product and I will say that over the course of the last few months I have been using mainly just the wrist widget but instead of wearing it so the ulna styloid is in the middle of the 2 straps I wear the WW down on the wrist a bit so that the top ww strap lines up with the bottom of the ulna styloid (the part closer to the forearm than the hand). This healing though was greatly aided by using the KB wrist wrap 3-4 times a day for quite some time I wanna say 10-12 months. I think looking back I probably could've made faster progress by doing the KB wristwrap treatment first thing in the morning then again at night. While wearing the WW as described above throughout the day (except for bathing) Anyways I feel much better now and am enjoying mostly pain free way of life again--thanks KB!

All my peeps with the TFCC tear--no worries--just get the KB wrist wrap and the wrist widget brace and find a treatment pattern either like what I described or whatever works for you--but you can heal this injury--just gotta be persistent--DOnt give up!

All my best to you

Just thought I'd give everyone an update--it seems like this thread gets a decent amount of views, so that means there are others in a similar ( I hope better predicament) than me----Still have not had surgery nor do I plan to. To be honest for the last 3 months or so I have stopped using BFST as my doc had informed me the ligament has basically healed and waiting on maturation of the tissue.--So the last 3 months I've been doing a lot more bracing with the wrist widget--and now my wrist is definitely better but still not 100% I thought the bracing would be the final straw for me as it would help the newly healed tissue to mature by decreasing the stress placed on it. Anyways I'm better but not all the way back. Right now there is a pain on the bottom of my wrist (ulnar side) not a stabbing or throbbing, but like a gravelly kinda weirdness that will disappear for a few days and then come back for like 2 days then the cycle kinda repeats but never quite the same.

Anyways just thought I'd give an update--some days I feel 95% some days 75% but mostly in between somewhere. Stay positive get an ultrasound by a physical rehab doc (usually sports Ortho) and do your bfst treatments. Also the bracing has helped and i feel like I should begin to switch off and do like 3 more months of bracing then go back to 3 months of bfst treatments with bracing at night only.

Anyways the combination of these treatmnets plus physical therapy has greatly improved my condition and I can go through my everyday with some minor pain--which is def an improvement. stay positive all it gets better!
Best wishes for a great 2017!

OK--thanks Helen--
would you recommend we get the accessory strap as well?--want to make sure she has a perfect fit when wearing it for maximum effect--and she should wear it UNDER clothes, correct? just making sure--I use my BFST wristwrap under clothes--on just my bare skin, just wanted to make sure it's the same for the back--I imagine so, just checking.

Thanks again

Hey KB!
My mom has been having problems with her back like mid back, and I told her we should get the large body wrap to help heal her (judging by how your KB BFST wristwrap product has helped my wrist). We were disheartened to see the large body wraps out of stock on your site. When will you have them in? and can we just use the back wrap instead-she has a midback issue and I was hoping to get her feeling better ASAP. Is there any way we could buy the lower back wrap for now, and then exchange it for the larger body wrap in the future when it is in stock? Do you think the regular back wrap could be sufficient? maybe she can treat her midback twice  a day and then treat the lower back seperately twice a day with the smaller back BFST--would that work?

Please let me know
Thanks for your time, customer service and wonderful products
Tony (KB BFST wrist user)

ok cinco de mayo time peeps!! Just came back from physiotherapist (medical doctor specializing in rehab)

he did the sonogram, told me my TFCC is basically healed, the little bit of pain I'm still feeling he attributes to the new tissue remodeling-- (I had according to him about 3 tears that all healed)that may still take another 6 months or so to mature--anyways still no bowling or regular push ups (I stink at bowling anyways) and I can do push ups on push up bars, or  barbells instead of on my hands--so no big deal there. Of course this is all precautionary--Could probably get away with it but why risk it? Anyways a rather intense regimen of Kingbrand BFST wrist wrap, physical therapy, and careful upper body workouts with less weight have all contributed to my healing. Also vtamin C, Glucosamine chondroitin, msm (3 in 1 supplement) and fish oil have helped me out as well.

Hopefully I can be 100% real soon, but as of now I'm close enough to do pretty much everything I was doing pre-injury with only mild discomfort.

Thanks KB, hopefully some people can benefit from my experience a bit--I will continue to use Kingbrand BFST until I feel no pain, and probably for a couple months after that at least--getting close--can't wait!

Believe in yourself people, great things DO happen when you believe, NEVER STOP FIGHTING!

"I am not sure what you mean by a small plastic piece"
Ashley about 3-3.5 inches down the energy web in the BFST wrist wrap, there is a 1/2 inch hard piece right in the center of the energy web. I can't see it as it's inside the energy web but I'm assuming it's plastic and it's uncomfortable. For the longest time I just assumed it hurt because my wrist still hurt but now as it gets better I'm noticing the pain inside the glove more and more and was just trying to nail it down--when I realized there is a hard piece of something--right in the center of the energy web

was hoping there was maybe a solution--guess not

I'll continue wrapping it at an angle which helps a bit--it's a bummer though because this thing is literally right over the part of my wrist that hurts the most-- :'(

I have a question--over the last few weeks I've noticed that there is a plastic piece inside the BFST wrist wrap and when I wrap it around my wrist it touches the area that's injured and oftentimes as it rubs against my tfcc area it is painful--Lately I've been trying to wrap at an angle to avoid having the little plastic piece rub right against the most painful part of my injury--Is there another way around this? and what is that littles plastic piece--can it be taken out? I'm assuming no

despite all this I've definitely seen improvement---just want to maximize it as there is still def pain

Also don't underestimate the power of physical therapy, as that stretching and strengthening has been a huge help as well. Also taking fish oil, 3in 1 Gluc chond msm, turmeric, vitamin C. All this in combination with the BFST wrist wrap has been great--Have NOT taken an OTC anti inflammatory drug. Used ice sparingly (mainly after PT) as ice and anti inflammatories (for long term injuries, ice is still good for injuries that just happened) interfere with your body's normal healing process. Also self massage and keep the faith. KB has showed me we can heal ourselves! (with the right tools)

Best of health to all in 2016!
Thanks KB!

UPDATE: 2016 new year, new wrist???--thanks to King Brand, my (significant)partial TFCC tear is still not 100% but after 3-4 months of the BFST wrist brace 3-4 times a day, I'm inching closer, feel much better now--this BFST wrist wrap for sure works!!

last time I went to the doctor he said I was making "profound" progress with the injury and could see healing on the sonogram--that was 2 months ago, and I feel much better now. Not done yet but hopefully with another couple months treatment, this nasty injury will be truly behind me.

Thank You KB for a life changing product--I shoveled 2+ feet of snow last weekend and felt pretty good. Only thing my left forearm now is very sore as well nothing major, but it doesn't feel great--guess I'll use BFST for this injury too now!

I was skeptical, but seeing the progress I've made, I'm now hopeful and thankful!

Thanks Again KB
Feel better everybody!

Wanted to note that I am trending upward and I do believe the BFST brace to be of help, especially after PT--where it definitely calms the area down, and i do feel better overall since using it, just still have good days and bad days.

Thanks KB community!
Get well soon everybody!

just a quick update: going in for 3rd appt with PT today---hopefully this gets better soon-been using bfst everyday for the last 2 weeks-4 times a day and it feels better when in the brace, but not getting too much better overall--maybe I'll try a little more ice from here on out--trying to minimize the ice as doc says it's no good for the prolotherapy--I'm hoping only 1 more prolo shot (that would make it 3 shots overall) and then probably discontinuing that treatment and going with ice and bfst the rest of the way--for what its worth the doc did mention my tear was healing up a bit from 1st appt to 2nd appt--where I first began using BFST

The PT has made me stronger and lessened some pain, but there is still pain left--hopefully I can get to pain free soon

get better soon everybody!

you are in my prayers--please pray for me too.


Ulnar nerve entrapment? maybe

check out these ulnar nerve flossing vids

You'll be fine bro!

Hopefully this info helps you

be safe

(PS I also wish I did not do what I did to get the TFCC tear--- arm wrestling--how stupid--I'm not 20 anymore!)

don't beat yourself up--OVERCOME!!!
