Achilles Tendonitis

    You don't have to suffer. You don't have to wait.

  • You can reduce the pain and swelling.
  • You can heal quickly.

YOU simply need the right treatment.

Treatment For Professional Athletes

With more severe or persistent Achilles Tendon injuries, or due to time constraints such as in the case of professional athletes, time is critical and a proactive treatment plan is required. For the most important patients, a regular routine of BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™) is typically undertaken to significantly accelerate healing. Where rapid recovery and complete healing of the Achilles Tendon are required, BFST® is also required.

Treatment For the General Public

The standard Doctor's direction for most Achilles Tendon injuries is to rest the injury and let it heal over time. Doctors usually recommend patients try to stay off their ankle as much as possible. To ease discomfort doctors often suggest taking something for the pain. With this course of treatment, in most cases, the Achilles Tendon will heal itself within 1 to 3 months. If you want superior treatment though, anyone can choose the same treatment used for Professional Athletes.

Pain Management For Professional Athletes

Athletic therapists keep their athletes away from pain killers. For the best results to manage pain they use ColdCure® treatments. ColdCure® serves to actually reduce inflammation and control pain without adverse side effects. ColdCure® technology can contribute significantly to reduced pain and more rapid recovery for high priority patients.

Pain Killers Interfere With Healing

While instructions to use pain killers such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen (analgesics) are what patients want to hear, medical professionals recognize that masking the pain does nothing to heal the injury and that in fact re-injury is more likely to occur when the pain of an injury is masked with drugs. Most common analgesics are known to interfere with the clotting of blood and can actually interfere with the healing process and result in additional inflammation.

King Brand Healthcare Products manufactures a line of BFST® wraps and ColdCure® medical devices that are specifically designed for patients that require better than normal care for their Achilles Tendon injuries.

BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that actively
stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.

BFST® devices are NOT wraps or braces designed to simply lessen joint strain.

BFST® stimulates blood flow through the Achilles Tendons while the patient is at rest. This is very important because while at rest, an unaided inflamed Achilles Tendon can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the oxygen and nutrient rich blood that enables the healing process. Adequate blood flow is required for the tissue to heal properly and quickly.

Muscle and Tendons of the ankle

King Brand Healthcare BFST® devices serve 3 very important functions.

BFST® Wraps:

  • Promote blood flow and rapid healing in an ankle at rest
  • Provide support and moderate bracing for the injured joint
  • Serve to remind the patient that the ankle is injured and is undergoing healing

The promotion of blood flow has obvious benefits. The reminder of the injury though is incredibly important too because avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. The BFST® device is designed to be worn even when turned off to help protect the Achilles from re-injury - and this goes a long way towards shortening the recovery time. Patients enjoy the support BFST® wraps provide their ankle and appreciate that they are healing - patients like wearing them - they know its helping them heal. This positive attitude further contributes to an overall positive recovery plan.

ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling

ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.

Safer and More Effective Than Ice Packs

King Brand Time To Heal

While promoting blood flow at rest is fundamental to rapid recovery, controlling inflammation and pain are also very important for treating an injured Achilles Tendon. And for dealing with swelling and pain, nothing works better than cold compression. Unfortunately ice packs are an undesirable solution. Ice packs by nature are too cold - they can freeze the skin causing severe damage. What's more, because the skin over the ankle is so thin with little to no fat for insulation, ice packs can easily freeze tissue below the skin resulting in further damage to the injured area. This can make a bad situation worse.

Designed for Continuous Use

ColdCure™ technology was developed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device. They do not freeze the skin and underlying tissue, they have incredible cooling capacity, and they provide very important uniform compression. As a result, ColdCure™ therapy can be applied for extended periods of time providing superior relief from the swelling and pain that come with Achilles injuries. As well, ColdCure™ wraps carry the same benefits as BFST™ wraps in that they provide additional support and protection to an injured ankle and serve to remind the patient that they are getting better.

Designed Just for the Achilles

The ColdCure® Achilles Wrap has been designed to apply compression over the entire length of the Achilles Tendon, right down to the heel of your foot. That's not easy to do because the Achilles Tendon is recessed. Your ankle bones and heel bones make it hard to get at. The unique shape of the Achilles gel pack makes sure that compression is applied even in the deep recesses of your ankle so you get the cold compression where you need it. The Achilles ColdCure® wrap was designed specifically for the Achilles and that's part of the reason it works so well.

Medical Function - BFST® Device

BFST Tissue

The BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy™) Device is designed to promote blood flow in injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our patented Energy Web®, specially controlled EMR energy envelops your entire Achilles region and stimulates blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient rich blood to your ankle accelerating the healing process.

As an FDA Registered Medical Device the BFST® unit is suitable for use in hospital and therapeutic clinics. Because the device is completely safe for patients to use themselves, the BFST® wraps can also be used by the patients at home. Home use reduces in-clinic medical costs and further speeds up healing times.

The Energy Web® of the BFST® Achilles device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the entire back and lower sides of the ankle, from the top of the Achilles to the bottom of the heel. It extends far up the back and sides to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire Achilles area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro straps that guarantee a perfect fit. As well, the wrap and unwrap design makes it easy to put on a tender injured foot without having to slip into or out of a 'boot like' device. After treatment, the unit does not need to be removed.

After treatment the Velcro® straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for the injured ankle. The device disconnects at the back of the unit from the cord and controller so that the user is free to move about the treatment clinic or home. Even when the patient is not receiving treatment they can still wearing the wrap portion for support and comfort.

Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap

King Brand Cold Cure Technology

Cold compression wraps are standard medical products for the treatment of pain and inflammation. Cold and compression applied to an injured joint immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. This swelling can be in the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or tendon sheaths within the ankle. Doctors and Therapists know that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term permanent damage as a result of a soft tissue injury.

The King Brand ColdCure® Achilles Wrap is a medical grade cold compression wrap designed for use in hospitals and injury therapy clinics. Increasingly patients are purchasing their own units for use at home and healing even faster as a result. The ColdCure® wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy specifically for use in soft tissue injuries.

Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation

Improving on the RICE standard of injury care, ColdCure® wraps are specifically designed to operate at refrigeration (not freezer) temperatures. This eliminates the potential of skin damage during treatment associated with all freezer wraps. This improved standard is called RCCE® (Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation). RCCE® allows for the wraps to be applied to the patient and used while not attended by a physician or clinician. This is very important given the likelihood of skin damage from alternative devices which use cold packs charged in a freezer particularly when used on the Achilles / ankle.

The over-sized cold packs in all ColdCure® Achilles wraps contain specially formulated gel with more cooling power per lb than standard wraps. This allows for longer treatment durations without having to recharge the wrap or switch cold packs. The longer treatment times and more cold power means more pain relief, better control of swelling and less handling of the injured area. These all result in a better treatment. Each ColdCure® wrap comes with 3 large cold packs allowing for immediate re-use in clinical settings or the ability for extended treatment durations in the patient's home.

Like the BFST® Devices, ColdCure® Achilles wraps are made from flexible, stretchable neoprene covered in soft, plush cloth. The gel pack is specifically designed for the shape of the ankle so that the Achilles is properly targeted. We do not use one common gel pack in all our wraps - the ankle and the bottom of the foot and the knee and the shoulder are all shaped very differently and each one deserves a custom designed pack if it's going to work the best. No other wrap in the world has specifically designed cold packs for each and every part of the body. The wrap molds the cold pack around the back of the ankle, up and down the Achilles, to ensure that there is an even distribution of cooling power and compression over the entire injured area. This has in every way been designed to be 100% an Achilles therapy product.

The wraps use RigiGel® technology so that the gel does not flow away from the injured area when pressure is applied. The gel stays in place even under pressure. Yet it is still soft and molds to the body. ColdCure® wraps are unique and of a higher quality and performance than any other wrap available. Again, like the BFST® device, the ColdCure® wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that guarantee a perfect fit. The wrap and unwrap design allows for easily application around a tender, injured, ankle without having to slip into or out of a 'boot or sock like' device.
