It is widely known that Hip Bursitis is caused by inflammation. Inflammation that most often results from local soft tissue injury or strain.
Common treatments for Hip Bursitis, such as aspiration and cortisone injections, only address the symptoms, not the root cause. While aspiration may bring down the inflammation of your bursa, it won't fix the underlying problem. Cortisone shots mask the pain and also do nothing to address the condition itself. Without addressing the root cause, aspiration and cortisone become an endless cycle without proper healing, and can lead to eventual negative side effects.
Here's where King Brand® products can help you!
The Ultimate King Brand® Solution:
If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.
- Wear a ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap to relieve your pain and inflammation.
- Use the BFST® Back/Hip Wrap several times per day. This will help reduce stiffness, restore motion to the hip, and very importantly, repair any strained or torn tissue.
- Avoid re-straining your hip as much as possible. KB Support Tape can help with this. Giving your body a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
We know that you're tired of treatments that only provide symptomatic relief for your Hip Bursitis, without doing anything for the condition itself. We know that you'd rather not have to resort to surgery in order to get rid of your Bursitis for good. We know that you would like to return to your regular activities pain-free as quickly as possible. Thankfully, King Brand® has the medical devices that will do just that.

If you want to get rid of your Hip Bursitis as quickly as possible and return to your regular activities, use the ColdCure® and BFST® Back/Hip Wraps. All King Brand® ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. They exceed all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries. When applied, these medical grade cold compression wraps will immediately reduce the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long-term, permanent damage resulting from soft tissue injuries.
ColdCure® Wraps -- Here's How They Work
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Hip Bursitis, nothing works better than cold and compression, and if there is a lot of pain and/or inflammation present you will want to start with ColdCure® treatments.
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. The ColdCure® gel pack is enclosed in a soft, comfortable, quality neoprene wrap. It conforms to your body to ensure that your hip receives an even distribution of cooling power.
ColdCure® technology was developed specifically to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin and underlying tissue. Our gel packs pose no threat of cold burns. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice, which can cause the skin to freeze, leading to permanent damage. 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.
Each ColdCure® Wrap comes with 3 swappable gel packs that have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products. An excellent value! Unlike other gels that are mushy and watery, our gel is firm but also flexible. ColdCure® gel packs contain 10x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of your hip. And, the gel inside the wrap doesn't move around. It stays in place to ensure the effective treatment of your hip.
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 treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, for as long as you need relief.
Other gel packs are notoriously famous for having hot and cold spots. When cold pressure is applied to the hip, the gel starts to warm up in that specific spot faster than the rest of the pack. At King Brand®, our XC RigiGel® formula helps to distribute the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. The cold energy in our gel packs is transferred from the cool spots to the warm spots much more effectively. Yet another feature, this valuable improvement makes treatment much more effective, as your painful, swollen hip will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature-balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
Once the Pain and Swelling Are Under Control What's Next?
Continue Your Healing with BFST®
Blood flow works to improve cell growth and aids in proper functioning of the organs. Our blood contains oxygen and nutrients that are needed to help our body heal itself. When we're injured, blood flow to the area is usually significantly restricted. That's why promoting blood flow to the area of injury is so important. This is what opens up the blood vessels so the soft tissue can receive the oxygen and nutrients it needs to heal. Also carrying away the waste by-products that are left over from the time of injury.
The BFST® Wrap is a diathermic device that stimulates blood flow deep within the soft tissue, providing nutrient-rich, optimized blood flow to your hip. Diathermy is well-recognized and accepted by the medical community as an effective means of promoting sub-dermal blood flow in order to speed up healing and recovery times. Remember, our wraps are Class II Registered FDA Medical Devices and Health Canada approved.
The BFST® is NOT a heating pad. Heating pads bring blood to the surface of your skin and make it hot to the touch. BFST® Wraps stimulate blood flow deep beneath your skin to repair your damaged tissue. Bringing blood to the surface of your skin does nothing to heal the injury deep below. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your soft tissue injury through the promotion of blood flow. Heating pads can't do this.
Your situation is not hopeless. You can recover from Hip Bursitis. You just need the right treatment. You need to stimulate additional blood flow to regain proper movement of your hip. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
At rest, your hip is not promoting blood flow. But activity can re-injure and cause pain and swelling. Our BFST® device promotes circulation and blood flow while you are at rest. Thus providing you with a safe and effective way to heal in comfort.
You don't want to use BFST® if you have a significant amount of pain and/or swelling. To reduce pain and swelling you want to restrict the blood vessels, not open them up. That is when cold is effective. Once pain and swelling are under control, it now becomes important to increase the circulation, or blood flow to your hip to promote the healing. The more you can do this, the faster the healing.
As you return to normal activities you may from time to time experience some pain and inflammation. Use the ColdCure® Wrap at any time when needed, spacing ColdCure® treatments with BFST® treatments, waiting 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before using BFST® again.
Treatment Without Re-Injury or Strain
BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. They're made with medical grade materials and comply with many standards and regulations. This includes ensuring safe, effective treatments. Medical devices are held to much higher standards than consumer grade products, because unlike consumer goods, BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered.
Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery, which is why BFST® treatments are so important. A hip with bursitis normally has very limited blood flow. BFST® Wraps help to restore function by promoting blood flow to the affected area of your hip, deep below the skin. While physical activity is one way to promote blood flow, this can further aggravate the bursa. The BFST® Back/Hip Wrap stimulates nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow while you're at rest. This allows you to rest and avoid further aggravation while improving your circulation at the same time. You won't find this technology anywhere else.
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 their symptoms decrease. BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. You may experience a slight warming sensation and/or tingling sensation as the BFST® starts the blood flowing.
When you first start your treatments on Level 1, your hip area may feel quite warm. This is because, at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, the less warmth you will feel. This is good. As the warmth lessens from treatment to treatment, this is an indication that your circulation 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 doesn't mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
We recommend 3-4 blood flow treatments per day. Each treatment is 20 minutes and the effects of each treatment last for up to 4 hours, so it's best to spread your treatments out over the day. This way you'll be receiving optimal blood flow all day long. Even once you feel healed, you should keep doing regular blood flow treatments in order to maintain your healing. 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.
Once you begin to resume your activities, stimulate your blood flow prior to physical activity to help prevent re-injury. This acts as a warm-up for your circulatory system.
The BFST® Back/Hip Wrap is designed to be worn even when turned off. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the device and gently tighten the straps. This will provide your hip with light, comfortable compression between treatments. This constant pressure over your hip will work to reduce the inflammation of your bursa throughout the day, so you're working to get rid of it even between your treatments. This is an extremely valuable feature of the Back/Hip Wrap and helps contribute to a much faster recovery.
Protect Your Hip Between Treatments
When you're not doing BFST® or ColdCure® treatments, your bursa becomes vulnerable to further aggravation from unsupported tissue in the area. You don't want to make your Hip Bursitis worse than it already is. Apply KB Support Tape to your hip for extra support and protection between treatments.
Why Use KB Support Tape?
KB Support Tape helps to prevent re-injury by providing damaged tissue with targeted support and protection. Why is this important? Because fragile, healing tissue is at risk of further damage as you go about your daily activities.
When you apply KB Support Tape, it works with your skin to keep the underlying tissue in place, preventing re-injury. Comfortable to wear, and still relatively stretchy, your skin will be more rigid and less elastic with KB Support Tape. By limiting the movement of your skin, this also reduces the movement of the soft tissue underneath, further preventing re-injury and giving it support. Avoiding re-injury and giving support both contribute to a much faster healing time.
The Medical Tape Advantage
Not all support tape is created equal. At King Brand®, our tape is medical tape, not athletic 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 safer materials than most baby products, including toys, clothes and even diapers. 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 like there are for medical tape. Some big brand athletic 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.
KB Support Tape - Use All Day During Work & Play
KB Support Tape provides lightweight, comfortable compression to help you 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 sizes: 2 inch wide and 3 inch wide. We recommend the 3 inch wide tape for Hip Bursitis. The 3 inch wide tape comes in both Beige and Black. There is no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your personal style.
The 3 inch wide tape comes in a Continuous Roll, which is ideal 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 Hip Bursitis. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 3 inches wide and 16 feet long.
The above application was applied over clothing for demonstration purposes only. When using this application, apply the tape directly to your skin.
While we found the above application to be effective for Hip Bursitis, it's only an example. We encourage you to try different applications for Hip Bursitis 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 hip, apply the tape to that area.
Dealing With Pain
Hip Bursitis is often extremely painful and debilitating, causing us to reach for painkillers as a quick fix. The reality is that analgesics and NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen 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 often used to address the symptoms of Hip Bursitis but they don't treat the condition itself and can put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Painkillers Only Make Things Worse!
Painkillers mask the pain, making it easy to forget to rest your hip. Without fail this causes people to overstress and further aggravate their bursa, making their Bursitis worse. It is understandable that people need relief from the pain, so if you have to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you are resting. Using painkillers when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Use a ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap from King Brand® and avoid the dangers of painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps are much safer and more effective than painkillers. Actually, they're superior in every way. They are fast-acting and you will immediately feel relief as soon as you put one on. Since the wrap is specially designed for the hip, it does an incredible job of targeting the area to deliver fast-acting cold compression, which means pain relief.

KB Tape to Prevent Re-Injury
Step 1: Relieve the Pain
Use the ColdCure® Back/Hip Wrap several times a day to help relieve your pain and reduce any inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue. Continue to do regular ColdCure® treatments until your pain is nearly all gone. This usually takes about 2-10 days, depending on the severity of your Hip Bursitis.
Step 2: Improve Mobility
Use the BFST® Back/Hip Wrap to stimulate additional blood flow in your hip. This will help you regain the proper movement of your hip joint by reducing the stiffness caused by Hip Bursitis and healing soft tissue.
Step 3: Treat Flare-Ups
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 a 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.
Step 4: Use KB Support Tape
Any time you're not doing a BFST® or ColdCure® treatment, wear KB Support Tape on your hip. 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.

Don't Stop Using BFST®
When you're recovering from Hip Bursitis, the pain ends long before you've regained movement of your hip. In fact, the pain is usually gone once you're 20-30% healed. The recovery 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 hip is still healing. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to regain full movement of your hip joint. Doing regular BFST® treatments for 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. You should also continue to tape your hip to help prevent re-injury.
