One Super Important Fact:
Would you rather keep doing the activities that caused your Tendonitis and suffer forever or take some time to heal completely and get back to doing what you need to do? If you take the time to rest the injury and heal your Tendonitis properly with our products, you will greatly reduce the risk of re-injury and flare ups and you can start living pain-free.
Heal Your Tendonitis Quickly
We know you want to heal as quickly as possible. We know you want to get back to doing the activities that you love. And we know that Tendonitis is preventing you from doing this. Without proper treatment, Tendonitis can be a recurring problem that lasts for years. Even when you think it's gone, you'll do an activity that overloads the joint and the inflammation and pain will come back. You can heal your Tendonitis if you use the right treatment. ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps are the products you need to heal your Tendonitis for good.
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 the injured area 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 body a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing your Tendonitis.
Do this and your Tendonitis can truly heal - finally.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You can heal your Tendonitis. Your situation is not hopeless. You need to rest your injury and stimulate healthy blood flow. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy®. BFST® Wraps stimulate blood flow in the area of your injury deep below the skin to accelerate the healing process.
Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately, an injury at rest has very limited blood flow. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can make your Tendonitis worse than it already is. BFST® is the solution to this problem. The BFST® Wrap brings additional blood flow to your damaged tissue while you're at rest, creating an ideal environment for healing. This means you can rest and avoid re-injury while your injury receives the high-quality blood flow it needs to heal.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® devices help heal soft tissue.
When your injury is at rest, blood flow to the affected area is severely impaired. This makes it difficult for the healing process to keep moving along. It's nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow that enables the healing process, which is why BFST® treatments are so important.
BFST® treatments are extremely pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in the treatment area as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. We recommend 3-4 BFST® treatments per day. Since the effects of each 20 minute treatment last for up to 4 hours, it's more effective to space your treatments out. Do a treatment every 4 hours for best results.
Almost as important as blood flow is the reminder of your injury. If you get rid of the reminder, you risk feeling a false sense of ability, and this can lead to further injury. You don't want to accidentally overdo it and end up making your Tendonitis worse. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. The BFST® Wrap is designed to be worn between treatments to provide light support and protection for your injury. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the device and gently tighten the straps. This will act as a reminder of your injury and help you avoid putting any further strain on the affected area. This greatly contributes to a faster healing time.
Dealing With Pain
Tendonitis can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing us to reach for painkillers time and time again. Analgesics and NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen are often used to treat the pain but these drugs do nothing to heal 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 only intended to address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injury and they put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Painkillers are BAD, Not Good
Painkillers only mask the pain. Masking the pain is dangerous because it gets rid of the reminder of your injury. Without fail this causes people to overstress and re-strain the injured area, making their condition 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 at rest. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.
Avoid the dangers of painkillers and use a ColdCure® Wrap from King Brand®. They do an incredible job of relieving the pain and swelling that come with Tendonitis, without the negative aspects of painkillers. ColdCure® Wraps also work faster. While painkillers take 20 minutes to start working, you will feel the cool, soothing relief as soon as you apply the ColdCure® Wrap to your body.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Tendonitis, nothing works better than cold compression. That's why our ColdCure® devices use cold gel packs and a compression wrap to relieve your pain and swelling. In order to be as effective as possible, the application of cold compression must be uniform and complete, and that's exactly what ColdCure® Wraps provide.
ColdCure® Wraps were developed as a safe alternative to ice packs. ColdCure® Wraps do not freeze the skin or 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 numb the skin, 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.
ColdCure® Wraps come with 3 swappable gel packs that contain our special XC RigiGel® formula. This unique gel holds its form and doesn't migrate to other areas of the pack. This means it always stays in place to treat your painful injury. The gel won't move, even when put 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 during treatment to keep your therapy going. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief.
Protect Your Injury 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. Apply KB Support Tape to the injured area between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments for extra 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, 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 compression for your injury throughout the day, without restricting your range of motion. It also helps to prevent re-injury by providing your injury with targeted support and protection.
KB Support Tape comes in 2 different sizes: 2 inch wide and 3 inch wide. The 2 inch wide variety is ideal for smaller areas (Foot, Wrist), while the 3 inch wide style is better for larger areas (Shoulder, Leg). This also works for your size. Bigger people will prefer the 3 inch wide Tape, while smaller people will prefer the 2 inch wide Tape.
The 2 inch wide Tape comes in 4 different colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. The 3 inch Tape is available in Black & Beige as well. There is no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your individual style.
While the 2 inch wide Tape is available in both Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll, the 3 inch wide Tape comes in a Continuous Roll only.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are fast, easy and convenient. Since they're 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 ideal 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 or 3 inches wide and 16 feet long.
We encourage you to experiment with a variety of different applications for your Tendonitis in order to find the one that works best for you. There are plenty of examples online. Remember to trust the pain. If you feel pain in a specific area, 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 10093 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 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.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® Treatments
for Rapid Healing
for Pain & Swelling
to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape between your treatments. Combination Therapy is much more effective than using just ColdCure® or just BFST®. This is because you're getting both 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 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, reaching, typing, 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 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 ColdCure® or BFST® treatment, wear KB Support Tape over your injury. 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. This means they meet very high standards of quality, safety and performance. They have passed several different regulatory approval processes to ensure they meet the requirements set out for medical devices. Manufacturers of consumer grade products can't say the same, as they aren't required to go through these stringent approval processes.
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 injured body part and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting blood flow brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area, 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 treatments on Level 1, the injured 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 the injured area 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 have far more therapeutic benefits than heating pads. While heating pads bring blood to the surface of your skin, BFST® Wraps stimulate blood flow to the area of your injury deep below the skin. Heating the surface of your skin does nothing to heal the damaged tissue below. BFST® devices actively promote blood flow to your injury to heal the tissue damage. Heating pads can't do this.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® to conform to the exact shape of the body part you're treating, to ensure you receive an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. The Velcro® straps attached to the wrap can be easily adjusted, allowing you to find the right fit for your body. The wrap does not need to be removed after a treatment. It's designed to act as a reminder of your injury between treatments to help you avoid re-injury.
Complete the Healing Process
When you're recovering from Tendonitis, the pain ends long before you've 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 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 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. You should also continue to use KB Support Tape to help protect the affected area from re-injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Pain and Swelling Relief
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. Doctors and Therapists agree that controlling swelling is a fundamental part of reducing long term, permanent damage resulting from soft tissue injuries like Tendonitis. Cold and compression applied to an area with Tendonitis immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling.
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 keeps 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.
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 per lb than other products, for maximum coverage of the injured area. When our gel packs are stored in the freezer, they have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products. This means they stay cold longer so you won't have to swap the gels as often. It also means faster relief of your pain and swelling. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus superior cooling power equals an overall better, more effective cold treatment.
ColdCure® gel packs are custom designed for the body part you're treating. They conform to the treatment area perfectly for complete coverage of your injury. We don't just use one generic gel pack with all of our wraps. Every body part has a unique shape, which is why each one of our gel packs has a unique shape too. This means you always get an even distribution of cooling power over the entire injured area. This product has in every way been designed to be 100% a Tendonitis treatment device.
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 gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to the injured area, 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 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 the injured area or away from the injured area since they're not side specific.
