One Super Important Fact:
Treat the Symptoms & the Cause of Lower Back Pain
When it comes to Lower Back Pain, it's not enough to simply treat the pain and expect this to get rid of the problem. You need to treat both the symptoms and the cause. By treating both, you're working to reduce the pain and swelling, as well as addressing the underlying reason the pain is there in the first place. And King Brand Healthcare® has the products that will do just that.
The Treatment Process
Start with the ColdCure® Back Wrap to relieve the pain and reduce any swelling and inflammation. Use the ColdCure® Wrap in cycles of 20 minutes on and 20 minutes off for as long as is needed. Continue doing ColdCure® treatments until any external swelling is gone and the pain has been reduced.
You can start using the BFST® Back Wrap once the visible swelling is gone. You may want to start with treatments that are only 5-10 minutes in length to see how your body reacts. If you still have a lot of internal inflammation, treatments may be quite hot, which means you should go back to using the ColdCure® Wrap. If your body responds well to the 5-10 minute BFST® treatments, you can start doing treatments for the full 20 minutes. Try doing 3-4 full 20 minute BFST® treatments every day, as this will work to promote blood flow and improve circulation in your lower back. This will help heal any soft tissue damage you may have in your lower back.
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 lower back 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 your back as much as possible. Using KB Support Tape® will help with this. Resting your body is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with severe lower back pain, nothing works better than cold and compression, which is exactly what the ColdCure® Back Wrap provides.
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 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.
The ColdCure® Back Wrap comes with
3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible, so it conforms to your back comfortably, without moving out of place. It's not watery or mushy like other gel formulas. This means the gel holds its form and doesn't flow away from the painful area, 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 one inside the wrap during treatment, and the other two charging in the freezer. This will allow you to keep your therapy going throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief. Do your ColdCure® treatments in cycles of 20 minutes of use followed by 20 minutes of rest.
Dealing With Pain
All too often, lower back pain becomes chronic, causing us to rely heavily on painkillers for 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.
Painkillers are BAD, Not Good
Painkillers mask the pain. They don't do anything to address the underlying cause of that pain. When you mask the pain, you run the risk of feeling a false sense of ability that can lead to further pain and a worsened condition. It's understandable that you may need to take painkillers from time to time, just make sure you restrict them to times when you're resting. Taking painkillers when you're active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Avoid the Dangers of Painkillers
ColdCure® Wraps are a safe, effective alternative to painkillers. They do a superior job of relieving lower back pain and inflammation. They also work faster than painkillers. While painkillers take 20 minutes to kick in, you will feel the cool, soothing relief of ColdCure® as soon as you apply the wrap to your lower back.
For Mega Coverage of Your Lower Back
If you are looking for mega coverage of your Lower Back, the ColdCure® Large Body Wrap provides exactly that. With a cold treatment area that's greater than 15"x15", you can almost treat your entire back. This Wrap is ideal to wear around the home and can be laid on or rested against while sitting on a couch or chair. The Large Body Wrap is like the Back Wrap, but much larger. It comes with 2 huge gel packs that offer amazing coverage and cooling power.
The ColdCure® Large Body Wrap is guaranteed to fit comfortably on anyone with a waist measuring between 22" and 44". For people whose waist measures above 44", we have extensions that can be attached to your Wrap to achieve a perfect fit (we recommend the purchase of 2 Accessory Straps for use with the Large Body Wrap).
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 back while you are at rest. This is very important because, while at rest, an unaided and inflamed lower back 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 your lower back to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are extremely pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight warming sensation and slight tingling sensation deep within their lower back as the BFST® Wrap starts increasing their blood flow. Since the effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, it's best to spread your treatments out over the course of the day. 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 your condition. This is what helps you move with care so you don't re-injure your lower back. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. This is why we recommend that you continue wearing the BFST® Back Wrap between treatments. This will provide your lower back with light support and protection, while also acting as a reminder of your condition.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
While cold therapy will address your symptoms of pain and inflammation, you need something to address the source of that pain. You need to stimulate blood flow in order to heal your damaged tissues. You need a Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wrap from King Brand®.
The BFST® Back Wrap brings healthy, high-quality blood flow to the affected area of your lower back. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissues. Unfortunately, when you're resting, your lower back will have very limited blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. With the BFST® Back Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in your lower back while you're at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can relieve your lower back pain at a surprisingly rapid rate.
For 11+ Inches of Extension
The Accessory Strap can provide a more customized fit for the BFST® and ColdCure® Back Wraps. The strap provides up to 11+ inches of extension so you can use as much or as little extension as you need. We all come in different shapes and sizes and this strap will allow you to increase the size of your Back Wrap to achieve the best possible fit and treatment. Just attach one end of the Accessory Strap to one of the Back Wrap straps and pull it around your front. Attach the other end of the Accessory Strap to the other Back Wrap strap. Adjust to your desired fit.
KB Support Tape -- It's Armor For Your Injury
KB Support Tape helps to prevent re-injury by providing your tissue with additional support and protection. It also provides the affected area with light compression to relieve swelling throughout the day.
KB Support Tape comes in two different sizes: 2 inch wide and 3 inch wide. We recommend the 3 inch wide Tape for Lower Back Pain. The 3 inch wide Tape comes in both Black and Beige. 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. This is ideal for customizing the Tape to your lower back area. You can cut the Tape into a variety of lengths and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your lower back. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that's 3 inches wide and 16 feet long.
The image to the left is only an example of a Lower Back Pain taping application. We encourage you to try various taping applications in order to find the one that works best for your lower back pain. You should always use the pain as a guide when taping -- if you feel pain in a specific area of your back, apply the Tape there.
The Medical Tape Advantage
What makes KB Support Tape better than other tapes on the market? It's medical tape, not athletic tape. This means our Tape is manufactured to the ISO 10993 standard, 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 standards for athletic tape don't exist like they do for medical 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.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® Treatments
for Rapid Healing
for Pain & Swelling
to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means using the right product at the right time. This is much more effective than just using one product at all times because each product addresses a specific issue. You have ColdCure® to relieve your pain and inflammation, BFST® to promote blood flow and aid healing, and KB Support Tape for protection and re-injury prevention, resulting in the absolute best treatment for Lower Back Pain.
When to Use the ColdCure® Wrap
ColdCure® is designed to relieve pain, swelling and inflammation. Use the ColdCure® Wrap any time you are experiencing visible swelling and/or significant pain. This could be immediately upon injury or during a flare-up of inflammation and/or pain. ColdCure® does an amazing job of relieving pain -- some of our customers have described it as "sucking the pain" right out of their body. ColdCure® treatments help to reduce not only the visible swelling you may see on the surface, as well as the inflammation you may have and cannot see, deep down in the soft tissue.
Do a ColdCure® treatment immediately after any physical activity to help reduce inflammation and prevent re-injury.
Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before following with a BFST® treatment. This time will allow the blood flow and body temperature to regulate again.
When to Use the BFST® Wrap
The BFST® Wrap is designed to accelerate healing. Use the BFST® Wrap when you don't have any inflammation or visible swelling, and pain is at a minimum. The most important treatments are first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed. The treatment first thing in the morning will act as a "warm-up" for your back, and the treatment before bed will help your back heal as you sleep.
Start your BFST® treatments on Level 1. Try to do a treatment every 4 hours, or before any type of activity that puts strain on your lower back (sitting at your computer, lifting groceries, etc.). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow.
See how your body responds after your first 20 minute treatment. If you experience an increase in pain and/or swelling during or after the 20 minute treatment, cut your sessions down to 10 or 5 minutes at a time.
When to Use KB Support Tape
KB Support Tape is designed to provide tissue with extra support, and also helps prevent re-injury. KB Support Tape can be worn any time -- even during your BFST®* and ColdCure® treatments, but it is most important during physical activity. It provides additional support and protection, working to prevent re-injury.
*While the KB Support Tape can be worn during your BFST® treatments, you will lose a small amount of effectiveness due to the barrier the tape creates. If you are taping and doing multiple BFST® treatments throughout the day, do your first treatment before the Tape is applied and your last treatment after the Tape has been removed at the end of the day.

Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Back Wraps are Class I FDA Registered medical devices. 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. Cold and compression applied to an injured lower back immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy.
ColdCure® RigiGel® packs are much safer and more effective than ice and products that use gooey blue gel. Why? Because RigiGel® packs are like ice, but they stay at 32°F / 0°C. While they may start at about
-4°F / -20°C straight from the freezer, after a few minutes they will go to 32°F / 0°C and stay at 32°F / 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 -4°F / -20°C and rapidly go to
32°F / 0°C, but then they warm up quickly instead of staying in the safe, effective zone of 32°F / 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 when it comes out of the freezer, leave it out for several minutes before inserting it inside the wrap. Once the pack is soft enough to bend, it's ready to use for treatment.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating something like lower back pain. The truth is that ice can be dangerous. Ice can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue. The proper solution is RCCE® - Rest, Cold, Compression and 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.
XC Gel® packs contain 3x more gel per lb than other products, for maximum coverage of your lower back. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have
10x more cooling power than other products. This means faster, more effective relief of the pain. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power, means an overall better cold treatment.
The ColdCure® gel packs are inserted inside a soft, comfortable wrap that will target the lower back. The gel packs custom designed to conform to the shape of your lower back. They will cover the entire affected area, ensuring an even distribution of cooling power. We don't just use one generic gel pack shape with all of our products. Each body part is uniquely shaped, which is why each one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. This product has 100% been designed to treat Lower Back Pain.
XC RigiGel® Means No Hot Spots!
While regular gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots, our XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the pack. When cold pressure is applied to a painful lower back, 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 sore back will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack, every time.
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 outstanding XC Gel® has to offer. The XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your back or away from your back since they're not side specific.
Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
BFST® Back Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. This means they have been designed, tested and manufactured to very high standards of quality, safety and performance. They comply with hundreds of pages of regulations that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. Manufacturers of consumer grade products can't say the same, because they're not FDA Registered.
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, low levels of EMR energy will envelop your lower back and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath your skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygenated, nutrient-rich blood to the affected area, 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 they heal. 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, you may feel a slight warming sensation deep within your lower back. 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 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's 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 superior to heating pads in every way. Heating pads bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This doesn't do anything to heal the soft tissue deep below the skin. BFST® Wraps penetrate deep below the skin to stimulate additional blood flow in the area of injury. This increase in blood flow helps to heal soft tissue damage. Heating pads can't do this. The difference between a heating pad and a BFST® Wrap is huge.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Back device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® to your lower back, ensuring there is an even distribution of energy over the affected 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. Simply unplug the device from the outlet and gently tighten the straps around your waist.
Don't Stop Using BFST®
When you have Lower Back Pain, the pain ends long before you've healed the underlying injury or condition causing that pain. In fact, the pain is usually gone once your tissue is about 20-30% healed. 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 lower back 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.
