One Super Important Fact:
If you have Tendonitis you need to stop doing the activity that caused it. Whether you have Tendonitis of the elbow caused by playing tennis or Tendonitis of the shoulder caused by repetitive reaching and lifting at work, you need to rest the injury.
Heal Your Tendonitis Quickly and Completely
Would you rather keep doing the activities and suffer with Tendonitis 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.
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 Treatment Process
If you want to heal your Tendonitis quickly and completely, you need to use the ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps. With these products, you can speed up your recovery and get back to your regular activities in a reduced amount of time. Start with the ColdCure® Wrap first to reduce the pain and inflammation of your Tendonitis. This will take 2-10 days depending on the severity of your Tendonitis.
Do regular ColdCure® treatments until your swelling and inflammation are gone, then start using the BFST® Wrap. BFST® treatments promote healthy blood flow in the area of your injury, deep below the skin. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal the soft tissue damage that's causing your Tendonitis.
Whenever you need extra support and protection for your injury, apply KB Support Tape. This lightweight, comfortable Tape will keep you moving and active all day long, while preventing re-injury.
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 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.
The BFST® Wrap is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on, sit back and relax. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in the treatment area as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. The effects of each treatment last for up to 4 hours, which means long after your 20 minute treatment is over, the blood keeps flowing and your Tendonitis keeps healing. For best results, do 3-4 treatments per day, spread throughout the day.
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. 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, 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®. Each wrap is designed for a specific part of the body, so no matter where your Tendonitis is located, we have a wrap to treat it. The ColdCure® Wrap does a superior job of relieving swelling and pain, and it works instantly. There's no 20 minute wait like with pills. As soon as you put the wrap on, you'll feel the soothing power of ColdCure®.
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. The issue with ice packs is that they can freeze your skin and tissue, causing severe damage. When our XC RigiGel® packs are charged in the fridge, they pose no threat of 'cold burns'. This means ColdCure® Wraps can be used for much longer durations than ice packs. It also means faster relief of your pain and swelling.
Every ColdCure® Wrap and gel pack is designed to conform to the part of the body you're treating, for complete coverage of your injury. The swappable gel packs included with the wrap contain our amazing XC RigiGel® formula. Our gel formula isn't watery and mushy like other formulas. This means it stays in place to treat your injury at all times, so you always get an even, consistent cold treatment. You insert one gel pack inside the wrap at a time, so you can have the other packs charging in the fridge or the freezer to keep your cold therapy going. There's no need to take breaks between treatments if you're using gel packs charged in the fridge. You can keep using the wrap as long as you need the pain 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 much more soft and elastic than the tissue underneath. You need to limit the movement of your skin in order to protect your tissue from re-injury. When you apply KB Support Tape over the injured area, it makes your skin much more rigid than usual. This rigidity reduces the movement of your skin and tissue, preventing re-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 compression.
KB Support Tape comes in 2 different styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These styles also 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 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 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 Tennis Elbow. You do not need 2 different colors of KB Support Tape in order to achieve this application, or any other Tendonitis application.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® Treatments
Relieve Pain & Suffering
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 for at least 2 straight days before using the BFST® Wrap. This will 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. 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 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.

For even more relief of pain and swelling, attach an Accessory Strap to your ColdCure® Wrap. This simple little addition allows you to increase the compression and support in any area of the wrap. It sticks anywhere on the surface of the wrap to target the exact location of your injury that much better.
The Accessory Strap is included with all ColdCure® & BFST® Shoulder Wraps. For all other products, the Accessory Strap can be purchased on our Shop page.

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 you can buy in a store 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 EMR energy envelops the injured body part and stimulates 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 have 3 different power levels. We recommend that everyone starts at Level 1 and works their way gradually through the levels as their Tendonitis 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 treatment 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. BFST® Wraps have long, wide Velcro® straps that allow you to easily adjust the fit. 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
Keep doing BFST® treatments even after you think you've healed. The healing process takes much longer than most people realize. Even once the pain is gone, your tissue may only be 30-40% healed. If you want your tissue to heal completely, you need to keep using your BFST® Wrap. You won't need to do as many as 3-4 treatments per day at this point, but it's beneficial to still do several treatments per week. This will maintain the healing that has taken place. Once you get back to your regular activities, do a BFST® treatment before the activity. This will act as a warm up for your circulatory system and will prevent 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 a soft tissue injuries like Tendonitis. Cold and compression applied to an area with Tendonitis immediately reduces the risk of further damage from excessive swelling.
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 (and other freezer-based substitutes such as the blue ice pack) can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue.
While we recommend that you start by using them at refrigerator temperatures, you can store the XC RigiGel® packs in the freezer and use them as freezer packs. Even at the coldest freezer temperatures they retain their softness and flexibility. In terms of flex and form, they feel exactly the same at room temperature as they do from the freezer.
Every ColdCure® Wrap comes with swappable gel packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. Our gel packs contain 10x more gel per lb than other products, for maximum coverage of the injured area. Although our gel packs are large, they're never bulky, so your treatments are always comfortable. 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 and more effective relief of pain and swelling.
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.
These 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 are not side specific.

What's the Difference?
While our BFST® devices actively stimulate blood flow to promote healing, the KB Basics Heating Pads are simply designed to provide heat. Our ColdCure® devices use XC RigiGel® to relieve the pain and swelling associated with soft tissue injuries, while the KB Basics Cold Packs use RigiGel® to simply provide cold. RigiGel® doesn't have the hyper-conductive properties of XC RigiGel® that work to eliminate hot spots.
Above we discussed our top end BFST® and ColdCure® medical devices. This section is dedicated to our KB Basics Heating Pads and Cold Packs. If you're looking for an economical alternative to our top end medical devices, the products in the KB Basics range are perfect for you.

They're extremely comfortable to wear because they're made of a soft, light, breathable material. There's no adjustment required because they slip on and off easily.
KB Basics Heating Pads are perfect for people who love heat. The Heating Pad conforms to the body part you're targeting to provide the sore, aching areas with heat. It comes with a controller that allows you to choose how much heat you want. The higher the level, the hotter the Pad gets. KB Basics Heating Pads are both cost-effective and well-designed. They even have a built-in safety feature that shuts the Heating Pad off after 20 minutes of use, making them much safer than other traditional heating pads.
KB Basics Cold Packs are ideal for people who enjoy cold. The Cold Pack molds to the body part you're targeting to provide the sore, swollen areas with cold. Each Cold Pack contains 1 sewn-in RigiGel® pack that cannot be removed, so it always stays in place where you need it. RigiGel® is soft and flexible, yet unmoveable under pressure. It also has outstanding cold capacity, meaning it stays cold for much longer durations than other products, so you won't have to recharge it as often.
