One Super Important Fact:
The products below ARE FDA Registered medical devices. These products and treatments ARE intended to prevent, treat and cure Intersection Syndrome and its related pain.
Rapid Healing For Intersection Syndrome
Intersection Syndrome occurs when the wrist extensor tendons become inflamed due to overuse. This causes pain and swelling on the top of the forearm, just below the wrist. If left untreated, the pain can travel all the way down to your elbow. Intersection Syndrome makes it extremely difficult to perform any tasks that require you to curl your wrist down or in towards your thumb. While resting your wrist can help alleviate the symptoms of Intersection Syndrome, you need a more proactive solution if you want to heal quickly. King Brand® makes the tools that will help you relieve the pain and accelerate the healing of your Intersection Syndrome. These tools are the BFST® and ColdCure® Wraps.
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 wrist 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 injury by resting and using KB Support Tape. Giving your wrist and forearm a rest is difficult, but it is very important in the early stages of healing your Intersection Syndrome.
Do this and your Intersection Syndrome can truly heal - finally.
The Treatment Process
If you want to stop the pain and speed the healing of your Intersection Syndrome, you need to use the ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps. Start with the ColdCure® Wrap first. ColdCure® treatments will relieve the pain and swelling in your wrist. This will take 2 to 10 days of regular treatments, depending on the severity of your Intersection Syndrome.
Once your pain and swelling has subsided, start using the BFST® Wrap. BFST® treatments work to heal your damaged tissue by stimulating blood flow in your wrist and forearm. Treatments are simple and easy: plug it in, turn it on, and rest. The effects of each 20 minute treatment last for about 4 hours. This means you're receiving optimal blood flow for the next 4 hours, even when you're not doing a treatment. For best results, space your treatments out throughout the day.
Apply KB Support Tape to your wrist and forearm between your treatments with the ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps. This will prevent re-injury and provide your wrist with lightweight support and protection. You can wear it during all of your daily activities for additional compression.
Blood Flow Is Essential For Healing
You can heal your Intersection Syndrome. You don't have to wait for endless months in pain. All you need is the right treatment. You need to rest your wrist and stimulate blood flow. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood to your injury. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissues. Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately, an injury at rest often has very limited blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. BFST® Wraps are the solution to this problem. They're designed to speed up the healing process while you're at rest. This means you're getting the additional blood flow your tissue needs to heal while avoiding re-injury at the same time.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that
actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® Devices heal soft tissue injuries.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your injured wrist and forearm while you're at rest. This is very important, because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed wrist can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It's high-quality, healthy blood flow that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your Intersection Syndrome to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are very pleasant and relaxing. People notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in the treatment area as the BFST® starts the blood flowing. For optimal results, we recommend doing 3-4 treatments per day. An ideal treatment regimen would be doing one treatment first thing in the morning, one in the afternoon, one in the evening, and the last treatment of the day right before bed. Since you'll be at rest, BFST® treatments are a good time to catch up on activites such as reading, watching TV and surfing the internet.
Almost as important as the promotion of blood flow is the reminder of your injury. Without the reminder, you risk feeling a false sense of ability that can cause you to overdo it and make your condition worse. The reminder is what will help you prevent re-injury. And avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why we recommend you keep wearing your BFST® Wrist Wrap between treatments. When your treatment ends, simply unplug the controller from the device and tighten the wrap to your wrist and forearm. This will act as a reminder of your injury, as well as provide your wrist with light support and protection.
Dealing With Pain
Intersection Syndrome can be extremely painful and debilitating, causing you to reach for painkillers for some relief. While 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, 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 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 don't do anything to treat the injury itself. They only mask the pain, causing people to re-injure themselves and start the healing process all over again from the beginning. If you need to take painkillers, try to limit them to times when you're 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
ColdCure® Wraps are a safe, effective alternative to painkillers. The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap does an outstanding job of relieving the pain and swelling associated with Intersection Syndrome. It can be applied around your wrist and forearm to perfectly target the painful area. ColdCure® Wraps also work much faster than painkillers. While painkillers take 20 minutes to start working, as soon as you wrap the Wrist device around the injured area, you will feel the cool, soothing relief.
ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with Intersection Syndrome, nothing works better than our cold compression wrap.
ColdCure® gel packs are designed to be stored in the fridge or the freezer. When stored in the fridge, our gel packs pose no threat of freezing your skin or underlying tissue. 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 charged in the fridge 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® Wrist Wrap comes with three swappable gel packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. Our gel is both firm yet flexible, unlike other gel formulas that are mushy and watery. This means the gel conforms to your wrist and forearm without flowing away. It won't move, even under heavy pressure for extended periods of time. It stays in place to relieve your pain and swelling, giving you a complete, even cold treatment every time. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can have the other two charging in the fridge or freezer to keep your cold therapy going. If you're charging your gel packs in the fridge, you don't need to take breaks between treatments. You can keep using the wrap as long as you need the pain relief.
Protect Your Wrist Between Treatments
When you're not doing treatments with your BFST® or ColdCure® Wrap, your injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-injure your already fragile tissue and make your Intersection Syndrome worse. Apply KB Support Tape between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments to provide your wrist and forearm with 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 skin, 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 you avoid 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 your wrist and forearm with ongoing compression to relieve your swelling throughout the day. It also prevents re-injury by providing support and protection for your injured tissue. You can wear it during all of your daily activities and it won't get in the way.
You have 2 styles to choose from: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll, as well as 4 different colors: Pink, Blue, Black & Beige. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just let you express your personal style.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are ideal for people who want to use their tape on-the-go. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can apply and go! Each 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 designed for people who want to get creative and customize their tape by cutting it into a variety of different shapes and sizes. 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 Intersection Syndrome. You do not need 2 different colors of KB Support Tape in order to achieve this application.
While we found the above application to be effective for Intersection Syndrome, it's only a suggestion. We encourage you to listen to your body and apply the tape accordingly. If you feel pain in a specific area, apply the tape there. Experiment with different applications for Intersection Syndrome to find the one that works best for you.
For Concentrated Relief
If the pain associated with your Intersection Syndrome is concentrated in your wrist area, the BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps are ideal for you. They are light, comfortable and can be wrapped easily around the affected area. This means complete coverage around your entire wrist. These wraps are specifically designed to treat injuries and conditions of the wrist, such as Intersection Syndrome.
For Mega Coverage
If the pain associated with your Intersection Syndrome goes from your wrist all the way down your forearm, you need the BFST® and ColdCure® Leg Wraps. Our Legs Wraps are versatile and can be applied anywhere on your arm. With a treatment area of 10" x 10", they're perfect for treating Intersection Syndrome in people whose pain travels down their forearm. For even more coverage, consider both the Leg Wraps and the Wrist Wraps, as this would target your wrist as well as your entire forearm, all the way down to your elbow.

Combination Therapy BFST® + ColdCure® + KB Tape
for Rapid Healing
for Pain & Swelling
to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means combining ColdCure® and BFST® by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape between your treatments. Combination Therapy is much more effective than using just one product or the other. This is because you're getting 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 Intersection Syndrome.
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 per day, spread throughout the day. During the day, do a BFST® treatment every 4 hours or before any type of physical activity. This can be anything that puts a strain on the injured area (pinching, grasping, 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 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 on your wrist and forearm. 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 Class II FDA Registered and Health Canada certified medical devices. In order to pass the FDA and Health Canada approval process, our BFST® devices had to meet very high standards of quality, safety and performance. BFST® Wraps comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards that are in place to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments. Manufacturers of consumer grade products you can find in a store can't say the same. They're not held to the same high standards because they aren't FDA or Health Canada approved medical devices like the BFST® Wrap.
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 your wrist and forearm, stimulating blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation 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 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 your healing time. You need to condition the body first.
During your first treatments on Level 1, you may feel a slight warming sensation deep in your wrist and forearm. This is because, at first, your circulation is poor. The more treatments you do, the better your circulation will become and 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 almost no 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.
BFST® Wraps are far more effective than heating pads. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your soft tissue damage by bringing healthy blood flow to the area of your injury, deep below the skin. Heating pads simply bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. This does nothing to heal the damaged tissues below. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is huge.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® device is inserted inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® around your wrist and forearm, to ensure there is an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. The Velcro® straps make the wrap easily adjustable, so you can find a perfect fit no matter what size your wrist and forearm are. You don't need to remove the BFST® Wrap after your treatment ends. Simply unplug the device and keep wearing it as a reminder of your injury. This will help you avoid re-injury and will contribute to a much faster healing time.
Complete the Healing Process
You need to keep doing BFST® treatments, even after your pain is gone, because the pain ends long before you've finished healing. 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 wrist and forearm are still healing. This means you need to continue 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 tape your wrist and forearm to prevent re-injury.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
ColdCure® Wraps are Class I FDA Registered and Health Canada certified medical devices. They exceed all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating soft tissue injuries. When applied, ColdCure® Wraps 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 like Intersection Syndrome.
Many people follow the RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - formula when treating their soft tissue injuries. What they may not realize is that ice (and other freezer-based substitutes) can be extremely dangerous. Ice can 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. We don't want to apply ice, we want to apply cold that is just above freezing. Yes, you want cold - and lots of it - but not so cold that it's below the freezing point of water.
While we recommend that you start by using gel packs stored at refrigerator temperatures, you can also store the XC Gel® packs in the freezer and use them as freezer packs. Even at the coldest freezer temperatures, our gel packs retain the ability to mold to the shape of your body.
XC Gel® packs provide maximum coverage and cooling power for overall superior cold therapy. They contain 10x more gel per lb than other products, for complete coverage of your injury. Despite their size, our gel packs are never bulky, so your treatments are always comfortable. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products. More cold power means much faster relief of pain and swelling. It also means you won't have to get up and swap the gel packs as often.
ColdCure® gel packs are specifically designed for the shape of the body part you're treating. This means you get the best coverage and treatment possible. We don't just use one generic gel pack with all of our wraps. Each part of the body is uniquely shaped, which is why each one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. This ensures that you receive an even distribution of cooling power over the entire injured area.
Unique XC RigiGel® Formula
While ordinary gel packs have hot and cold spots, our unique XC RigiGel® formula eliminates hot spots by distributing the cold power evenly throughout the pack. This means the gel pack is always at an evenly balanced temperature. With an XC RigiGel® pack, your injury will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack every time. The amazing hyper-conductive 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 provide you with all the same benefits that our XC RigiGel® formula has to offer. XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your wrist and forearm or away from your wrist and forearm since they're not side specific.
