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.
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.
Do this and your Intersection Syndrome can truly heal - finally.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
