Healing Solutions For Serious Upper Back Injuries


You don't have to suffer. You don't have to wait.
  • You can reduce the pain and swelling.
  • You can heal quickly.
You simply need the right treatment.

Heal In Weeks Instead of Months


Heal Quickly

Have you ever noticed that professional athletes seem to recover from their injuries much faster than the general public? This is because they have professional athletic therapists who instruct them to follow a very specific treatment regimen. They are also instructed to rest until the pain is gone. They cut out physical activity and avoid doing anything that could cause further strain to the area. These professional therapists ensure that the athlete is supplementing the healing process by stimulating blood flow many times each day. Regular BFST® treatments are a standard part of this therapy, because the more we promote blood flow, the faster we will heal. That's why professional athletes are back in the game in a matter of weeks while other patients with the same injuries will take months or even years to heal. By adding BFST® to your treatment regimen, you are working to accelerate the healing process.


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 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.

The ColdCure® Back Wrap provides superior relief of the swelling and pain that comes with Upper Back Injuries. The Wrap uses cold and compression together, because these are the two thing you need to eliminate pain and swelling as quickly and effectively as possible. The application of cold compression must be uniform and complete if it's going to work the best, and this is exactly what the ColdCure® Back Wrap provides.


We developed ColdCure® technology as a safe alternative to standard ice packs. Our gel packs pose no threat of cold burns. This makes them much safer to use than other products that are made with 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.


Competitor Gel is Inferior to King Brand Rigigel Competitor Gel is Inferior to King Brand Rigigel

The ColdCure® Back Wrap comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. Our gel is firm yet flexible, unlike other gel formulas that are mushy and watery. This means the gel holds its form and doesn't flow away from the painful area. It won't move, even under heavy pressure for long periods of time. It always stays in place to treat your injury. 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 your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief.


For Mega Coverage of Your Upper Back


If you are looking for mega coverage of your Upper 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).


Accessory Strap


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.



Dealing With Pain


Injury Treatment Without Drugs

When Upper Back Pain becomes chronic and interferes with our day to day lives, this can lead to dependency on painkillers. Analgesics and NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen are often used to treat the pain but these drugs don't do anything 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. This can make us feel able to be physically active, when we really aren't, which can lead to re-injury. Painkillers only address the symptoms, they don't do anything to treat or heal the underlying problem. If you do need to take painkillers, try to restrict them to times when you are resting. You can use painkillers to help you sleep. Using them when you are active is a recipe for permanent damage.


ColdCure® Wraps are a safe, effective alternative to painkillers. They do a superior job of relieving the swelling and pain associated with Upper Back Injuries and Conditions. They also work faster than painkillers. While painkillers take 20 minutes to kick in, you will feel the soothing, cool relief of ColdCure® as soon as you put the wrap on. Avoid the dangers of painkillers. Use a ColdCure® Wrap from King Brand® Healthcare.


BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.

BFST® devices help heal soft tissue injuries.

The BFST® Back Wrap is designed to actively stimulate blood flow through your upper back. This is very important because when you are at rest, blood flow to the affected area is severely impeded, stalling the healing process. It's healthy, high-quality blood flow that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required if you want to heal your upper back properly and quickly.


People often say that they love the way BFST® treatments feel. You won't feel any shocking, vibrating, pain or discomfort from BFST® treatments. People often notice a slight warming sensation and tingling sensation from the increase in blood flow. BFST Back Wrap We recommend 3-4 BFST® treatments per 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 blood flow is the reminder of your condition. Without the reminder of your back injury, you risk feeling a false sense of ability that can cause further injury and an even longer recovery time. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why we recommend that you continue wearing the Back Wrap between your BFST® treatments. This will help protect the injured area and provide light support throughout the day. Simply unplug the controller from the device and gently tighten the straps around your upper back.


Blood Flow is Essential For Healing


Improved Blood Flow with BFST

You don't have to continue suffering. You can heal your back injury. You simply need the right treatment. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to your damaged tissues, creating an ideal environment for healing.


The BFST® Back Wrap is designed to promote additional blood flow in the area of injury. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissues. Normally, an injured back will have very limited blood flow. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. With the BFST® Back Wrap, your blood flow circulation can be improved while you're at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can heal your Upper Back Injury at a surprisingly rapid rate.

Add to Cart

KB Support Tape provides lightweight, comfortable compression to relieve your swelling 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 Upper Back Injuries. 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.


Upper Back Tape Application

The 3 inch wide Tape comes in a Continuous Roll. This is ideal for customizing the Tape to your back area. You can cut the Tape into a variety of lengths and sizes to achieve a completely unique application for your Upper Back Injury. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 3 inches wide and 16 feet long.


The image to the right is only an example of an Upper Back Injury taping application. We encourage you to try a variety of different taping applications for your Upper Back Injury in order to find the one that works best for you. Remember to 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 sets KB Support Tape apart from the rest? It's 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. 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


BFST® for Rapid Healing
ColdCure® for Pain & Swelling
KB Tape 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 swelling, BFST® to promote blood flow and accelerate healing, and KB Support Tape for protection and re-injury prevention, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Upper Back Injury.


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 right 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 physical activity that puts a strain on your back (lifting, reaching, etc). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow.


Combination Therapy is Coldcure and BFST Together

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 the ColdCure® Wrap


The 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 swelling and/or pain. ColdCure® does an amazing job of relieving pain -- some of our customers have described ColdCure® as "sucking the pain" right out of their body. ColdCure® treatments help to reduce any 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 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

The ColdCure® Back Wrap is an FDA Registered Class I medical device. Cold and compression applied to an Upper Back Injury 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. ColdCure® Wraps exceed all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries.


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. ColdCure Safe Temperature 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.


Rest, Cold, Compression, Elevation

Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury, but 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 & 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.


3x More Gel and 10x More Cold

ColdCure® gel packs contain 3x more gel per lb than other packs, for maximum coverage of your upper back. When stored in the freezer, our XC Gel® packs have
10x more cooling power than other products. This means faster, more effective relief of pain and swelling. More gel plus superior cooling power means an overall better, more effective cold treatment.


ColdCure Back Coverage Zone

ColdCure® gel packs are custom designed to conform to the shape of the area you're treating. You can target the upper back area to ensure that your entire injury receives an even distribution of cooling power. We don't just use one generic shaped gel pack with all of our wraps. Each one of our gel packs has been specifically designed for the shape of the body part. Each part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why all of our gel packs are uniquely shaped too. The ColdCure® Back Wrap has 100% been designed to treat Upper Back Injuries.


Unique XC RigiGel® Formula


ColdCure Eliminates 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 an Upper Back injury, 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. The temperature-balancing power of XC RigiGel® can only be found in a ColdCure® Wrap.


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 your back or away from your back since they're not side specific.


Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing


Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy Action

The BFST® Back Wrap is an FDA Registered Class II medical device. This means it has been designed, manufactured and tested to very high standards of quality, safety and performance. Manufacturers of consumer grade products can't say the same, because their products are 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 envelop your upper back and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings healthy, high-quality blood flow to the injured area of your upper back, accelerating the healing process.


BFST Power Controller

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 upper 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 the circulation in your back 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 are superior to heating pads because they promote healing. BFST® Wraps work to bring additional blood flow to the injured area, deep below the skin. Heating pads can't do this. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, where it pools, making your skin hot to the touch. This doesn't do anything to heal your damaged tissues.


The Energy Web® of the BFST® Back device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® to your upper back to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the injured area. The wrap is opened and closed used attached Velcro® straps that allow you to customize the fit.


Complete the Healing Process


Yoga Group

When you're recovering from an Upper Back Injury, 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 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 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. You should also continue taping your back to help prevent re-injury.
