One Super Important Fact:
When it comes to treating Foot Tendonitis, we have everything you need. We have devices designed for the Foot, the Ankle and the Achilles. We have products that will relieve your pain and swelling and products that will speed up the healing process. We also have support tape for added protection.
Heal Your Foot Tendonitis Quickly
Foot Tendonitis occurs when the tendons in the foot and ankle become irritated and inflamed, causing pain, swelling and redness. While Foot Tendonitis is usually caused by activities that involve repetitive foot and ankle movements, it can also be caused by degeneration over time, flat feet, arthritis, etc. Since it's so difficult to keep the foot and ankle completely at rest, Foot Tendonitis can take up to 8 weeks to heal.
We know you don't want to suffer for months on end with severe pain that prevents you from doing your favorite sport, or even your job. That's why we developed BFST® ColdCure® Wraps. These medical grade devices are specifically designed for people that want the best possible treatment for their Foot Tendonitis.
The Ultimate Solution:
If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.
- Wear a ColdCure® Wrap as much as possible to relieve your pain and swelling and protect your foot from further damage.
- Do a BFST® treatment first thing every morning. Do 2 or 3 more BFST® treatments throughout the day. This will help you heal quickly.
- Avoid re-straining the injury as much as possible. Using KB Support Tape® will help with this. Resting your foot is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing your Foot Tendonitis.
Do this and your Foot Tendonitis can truly heal - finally.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You don't have to wait. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For Foot Tendonitis, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) gives your damaged tissues the blood flow they need to heal quickly and completely.
BFST® brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissue. Unfortunately, an injury at rest usually has very limited blood flow. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. With a BFST® Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while you're at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Foot Tendonitis at a surprisingly rapid rate.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices help heal soft tissue injuries.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your foot and ankle while you are at rest. This is very important because, while at rest, an unaided and inflamed foot and ankle can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for Foot Tendonitis to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are extremely pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their foot and ankle as the BFST® Wrap starts increasing their blood flow. The effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours. For best results, do 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 you go to bed.
Almost as important as the promotion of blood flow is the reminder of your injury. This is what helps you move with care so you don't re-injure your foot and ankle, making your condition even worse. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why the BFST® Wrap is designed to be worn between treatments. This will provide your injury with light support and protection. Continuing to wear the BFST® Wrap after your treatments will also act as a reminder of your injury and help you avoid re-injury.
Dealing With Pain
Foot Tendonitis can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing us to reach for painkillers for some relief. Analgesics and 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, 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 used in extreme cases but these too are intended to address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injury itself and they put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Painkillers Are BAD, Not Good
Painkillers don't do anything to treat Foot Tendonitis itself. All they do is mask the pain, making you feel a false sense of ability that can lead to further injury and strain. If you do need to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you are off your feet. 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 a superior job of relieving the swelling and pain associated with Foot Tendonitis. They also work faster than painkillers. While painkillers take 20 minutes to kick in, you will feel the soothing, cool relief of ColdCure® as soon as you put the wrap on. Avoid the dangers of painkillers. Use a ColdCure® Wrap from King Brand® Healthcare.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain that comes with Foot Tendonitis, nothing works better than our cold compression wrap.
ColdCure® technology was developed to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin or underlying tissue. ColdCure® gel packs pose no threat of cold burns or permanent tissue damage caused by freezing of the skin. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice. 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® Wrap comes with 3 swappable gel packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. Our gel is firm yet flexible, unlike other gel formulas that are mushy and watery. This means the gel holds its form and doesn't flow away from your injury. It won't move, even under heavy pressure for long periods of time. It always stays in place to treat your painful injury. 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 cold therapy going. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief.
Protect Your Foot Between Treatments
When you're not doing BFST® or ColdCure® treatments, your already damaged tissue becomes vulnerable to further injury. You don't want to re-injure your fragile, healing tissue and make your condition worse than it already is. Using KB Support Tape is a very important step when it comes to treating Foot Tendonitis. This is because the tendons are so close to the skin in the foot and ankle area. KB Support Tape will provide your injured tissues with the extra support and protection you need to get through the day.
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 colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your individual style.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are fast, easy and convenient. Since they 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.
We used 2 different colors of KB Support Tape in the above image to better illustrate how the Tape is applied for Foot Tendonitis. You do not need 2 different colors of KB Support Tape in order to achieve this application.
The image above is only an example of a Foot Tendonitis taping application. We encourage you to try a variety of different taping applications for your Foot Tendonitis to find the one that works best for you. Remember to use the pain as a guide when taping. If you feel pain in a specific area of your foot and/or ankle, 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 diapers, toys and clothes. 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 tape glues even contain carcinogenic ingredients. At King Brand®, your health and safety are of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.
For Ankle Tendonitis
The ColdCure® and BFST® Ankle Wraps cover the entire top of your foot, as well as the front and sides of your ankle, for complete coverage of your Foot or Ankle Tendonitis. They're designed to treat Peroneal Tendonitis, Extensor Tendonitis, Tibialis Anterior Tendonitis and Posterior Tibial Tendonitis.
For Achilles Tendonitis
The ColdCure® and BFST® Achilles Wraps conform to the shape of the back of your ankle, for maximum coverage of the Achilles. They cover the entire length and sides of the Achilles. These wraps are specifically designed for the unique shape of the Achilles area, to ensure the best treatment possible.
For Foot Tendonitis
The ColdCure® and BFST® Foot Wraps cover the entire bottom of the foot and up the back of the heel. These are the ideal products for treating Plantar Fasciitis and Plantar Fasciosis . The Foot Wraps do a superior job of targeting the plantar fascia and provide complete coverage of the injured area.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape
for Rapid Healing
for Pain & Swelling
to Prevent Re-Injury
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 Foot Tendonitis.
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.
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 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 (walking, standing for extended periods, etc). 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 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 your 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 affected area. 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. BFST® Wraps are designed, manufactured and tested to very high standards of quality, safety and performance. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards put forth by the FDA and Health Canada to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. Manufacturers of consumer grade products can't say the same.
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 levels of EMR energy envelop your foot and ankle, stimulating blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your injury, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. Everyone should start their treatments on Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as they heal. 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 foot and ankle area will feel quite warm. This is because, at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, 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 foot and ankle is improving. Better circulation means 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 far superior to heating pads. BFST® Wraps work to heal your injury by bringing additional blood flow to the damaged tissues deep below the skin. Heating pads can't do this. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This doesn't do anything to heal the injury. There is a huge difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around your foot and/or ankle, to ensure there is an even distribution of energy over the injury. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that allow you to customize the fit. When your treatment ends, you don't need to remove the wrap. Simply unplug the controller and gently tighten the wrap to provide your injury with snug support and protection.
Complete the Healing Process
When you are recovering from Foot Tendonitis, the pain ends long before you're completely finished healing. In fact, the pain is usually gone once your tissue is about 20%-30% healed. The entire healing process is very complex, and 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 tendonitis is still healing. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to complete the healing process. Doing regular BFST® treatments for several 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 and help maintain the healing you've done. You should also continue to use KB Support Tape to protect your foot and/or ankle from re-injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. Cold and compression applied to a foot with tendonitis immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing the long term, permanent damage that can result from soft tissue injuries like Foot Tendonitis. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating 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 at about -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. Not all freezers are the same. If you find that the gel is too stiff from the freezer, leave it out for several minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. When the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment.
Many people follow the RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - method when treating a soft tissue injury. Most of these people probably aren't aware of the serious dangers that ice can pose. Ice can freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your skin and 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 other products, for complete coverage of the injured area. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products, meaning faster relief of pain and swelling. This also means less time spent getting up to swap out the packs. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power, means an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® gel packs are custom designed for the shape of the area you're treating. This ensures that your injury receives an even distribution of cooling power. Every part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why every one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. Whether your tendonitis is located in your ankle, Achilles or foot, we have a cold product to target that area. These product have 100% been designed to treat Foot Tendonitis.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® packs help to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to an injured foot, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. The cold energy is transferred from the cold spots to the warm spots much more effectively. This is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen foot will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature-balancing power of this gel formula 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 foot or away from your foot since they're not side specific.
