Heal in Weeks Instead of Months
You see it all the time. A professional athlete develops Medial Epicondylitis (Golfer's Elbow). It's the same injury thousands of people get, yet the professional athlete is competing again in a matter of days or weeks while most people suffer for months on end. How can that be? The difference is that the general public take painkillers and just rest while the pro athlete takes more action. Professional athletes are using tools to help them heal quickly. And the reality is that anyone with Golfer's Elbow can have that treatment too. King Brand® makes those tools. We provide professional athletes with these tools, and we can provide them to you as well.
Rapid Recovery for Golfer's Elbow
Golfer's Elbow is one of the most persistent conditions many people are faced with. Whether it's due to a sudden trauma or the result of repetitive strain, once damaged, the elbow can be incredibly resistant to healing. Patients with Golfer's Elbow rarely take the time necessary to rest their elbow so it can heal completely. For medical professionals it is impractical to expect the patient to not use an arm for weeks or months while the body heals itself. For the practical treatment of Elbow Tendonitis, a more proactive solution is required. This solution is King Brand® ColdCure® and BFST® Elbow Wraps.
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 elbow 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. Giving your elbow a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your Golfer's Elbow can truly heal - finally.
The Treatment Process
If you want to heal your Golfer's Elbow as quickly as possible and return to your regular routine, use both the ColdCure® and BFST® Elbow Wraps. Start with the ColdCure® Wrap first. ColdCure® treatments will work to relieve the pain and inflammation of your Golfer's Elbow. This will take 2 to 10 days, depending on the severity of the condition.
Once your pain and swelling is gone, you can start using the BFST® Wrap. BFST® treatments will promote blood flow to your injured tendons in order to repair the damaged tissue. Treatments are simple: plug it in, turn it on and rest. Each treatment will take 20 minutes and the effects last 4 hours or more. For optimal results, we recommend 3-4 treatments per day, spread out throughout the day.
Wear KB Support Tape between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments or any time you're physically active. This will help protect your elbow from re-injury by providing your damaged tissues with extra support. You can wear KB Support Tape all day long and it won't get in the way or restrict your movement.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For Golfer's Elbow, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) gives your elbow the blood flow it needs to heal quickly and completely.
BFST® Wraps bring extra oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your elbow injury - a requirement for the body to heal itself. Unfortunately, an injured elbow at rest often has restricted blood flow, which in turn limits the body's ability to heal. Physical activity will promote blood flow, but all too often it also results in small but frequent re-injury, which extends your healing time and greatly increases the amount of scar tissue that develops. With a King Brand® BFST® Elbow Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your elbow while you are at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can recover from your Golfer's Elbow at a surprisingly rapid rate.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® Devices heal soft tissue.
The BFST® Wrap stimulates blood flow through your elbow while you are at rest. This is very important, because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed elbow 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 the elbow tendons to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are extremely pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their elbow as the BFST® starts increasing their blood flow. Since you'll be at rest during treatments, they're a great time to catch up on activities such as reading, watching TV and surfing the internet. 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.
Almost as important as the promotion of blood flow is the reminder of the injury. The reminder is what helps us move with care so we don't overdo it and end up making our injury worse. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery, which is why we recommend that you keep wearing your Elbow Wrap between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the device and tighten the straps for a more snug fit. This will act as a reminder of your injury and provide your elbow with comfortable support and protection.
Dealing With Pain
Golfer's Elbow can be extremely painful and debilitating. 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, 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 only mask the pain. They don't do anything to treat the underlying injury causing that pain. The pain is there for a reason - trust it and use it as a guide. If you need to take painkillers for some relief, try to restrict them to times when you're at rest, such as to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Avoid the Dangers of Painkillers
When it comes to relieving the pain, the safest and most effective option is a ColdCure® Wrap from King Brand®. The ColdCure® Elbow Wrap is specifically designed to treat the pain and swelling that comes with Golfer's Elbow. It also works much faster than painkillers. While painkillers take 20 minutes to kick in, you will feel the soothing, cool relief as soon as you apply the ColdCure® Wrap to your elbow. ColdCure® Wraps are superior to painkillers in every way.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Golfer's Elbow, nothing works better than cold compression.
ColdCure® technology was developed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin and underlying tissue. As a result, ColdCure® therapy can be applied for extended periods of time, providing superior relief from the pain and swelling that comes with Golfer's Elbow. While King Brand® makes ColdCure® devices for all parts of the body, there's no better version than the ColdCure® Elbow Wrap. Put it on and you will instantly feel relief and relaxation as it draws the pain out of your elbow.
The ColdCure® Elbow 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® holds its form and doesn't migrate to other areas of the wrap, meaning it always stays in place to treat your injury. It doesn't move, even under heavy pressure for long periods of 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. We recommend you do your ColdCure® treatments in cycles of 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off.
Protect Your Elbow Between Treatments
When you're not doing treatments with your BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your Golfer's Elbow worse. Apply KB Support Tape directly over the injured area of your elbow between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments. This will provide your elbow with additional support and protection.
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 your 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 your injury with lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. You can wear it during all of your daily activities and it won't get in the way or restrict your movement.
KB Support Tape comes in 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These 2 styles 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 ideal for people who want to use their tape on-the-go. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can apply and go! Each 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 for you 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.
While we found the above application to be effective for Golfer's Elbow, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for Golfer's Elbow 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 elbow, 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 clothing. 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 is of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape® is manufactured to such high standards.

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 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®, and the protection and re-injury prevention of KB Support Tape, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Golfer's Elbow.
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 (lifting, throwing, 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. 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment, follow with 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. 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 BFST® or ColdCure® treatment, wear KB Support Tape on your Golfer's Elbow. More Tape means more support, so if you're doing something physically demanding, you may want to apply an extra layer of Tape. 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 it has been removed at the end of the day.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. This means they have been designed, manufactured and tested to the highest safety standards in the industry. This is to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. BFST® Wraps comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards. The FDA holds manufacturers of medical grade products like the BFST® Wrap accountable, unlike manufacturers of lower quality, non-FDA Registered consumer goods.
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 the entire elbow and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area of your elbow, accelerating the healing process.
BFST® Wraps come with a 3 level power controller. Everyone should start their treatments at Level 1 and work their way through the levels gradually as their elbow heals. Proceeding immediately to Level 2 or 3 will not speed up the healing process. You need to condition the body first.
During your first treatments on Level 1, your elbow may feel quite warm. This is because at first, your circulation is poor. 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 elbow 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 far superior to heating pads. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your damaged tissues. Heating pads can't do this. BFST® Wraps stimulate healthy blood flow in the area of your injury, deep below the skin, creating an ideal environment for healing. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is significant.
The Energy Web® of the Elbow BFST® device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® around your entire elbow to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the injured area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that allow you to customize the fit. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for your injured elbow. The device disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so you are free to move around your home when not receiving treatment.
Complete the Healing Process
You need to keep doing BFST® treatments even after the pain is gone, because the pain ends long before you've finished healing. The entire healing 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 Golfer's Elbow is still healing. This means you need to continue 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 to warm up your circulatory system. You should also continue taping your elbow to prevent re-injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. These medical grade cold compression wraps are designed for in-home use. Cold and compression applied to an injured elbow 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. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries such as Golfer's Elbow.
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 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 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, but the proper solution is actually RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation. You don't want to apply ice, you 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. The truth is that temperatures below freezing can be too cold to effectively relieve pain and swelling. And these temperatures can also be dangerous. Ice can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue.
ColdCure® gel packs contain 10x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of your injured elbow. When stored in the freezer, our XC RigiGel® packs have 3x more cooling power than standard gel packs. This means they stay cold longer so you won't have to get up and swap the gels as often. It also means faster relief of your pain and swelling. Larger packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power ultimately means a better, more effective treatment.
The ColdCure® Elbow gel pack is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. It conforms to your entire elbow to ensure that your injury receives an even distribution of cooling power. All of our gel packs are custom designed for the shape of the body part they're intended to treat. Each body part is uniquely shaped, which is why all of our gel packs are uniquely shaped too. This means you're getting the best coverage and treatment possible. This product has 100% been designed to treat Golfer's Elbow.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
Gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots. Our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to an elbow injury, 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 is a valuable improvement as your hot, swollen injury 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. The gel pack can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your elbow or away from your elbow since XC Gel® packs are not side specific.
