While Adhesive Capsulitis most commonly occurs in the shoulder, it can also develop in the knees or feet. The information and devices below for Adhesive Capsulitis are also available for the knees and feet on our website.
You haven't done anything to hurt your shoulder. However, you may find yourself unable to move your shoulder and it may cause serious pain if you try. This is a condition known as Adhesive Capsulitis, and it can greatly affect your daily life. Adhesive Capsulitis can develop due to many different factors, but it always results in pain and reduced motion. To make matters worse, Adhesive Capsulitis, on average, can take between 6 months and 2 years to heal on its own. If you don't want to suffer through the next 2 years and take painkillers that don't really help, you may be tempted to resort to invasive surgery. Thankfully, King Brand® has a far simpler solution.
Do this and your Adhesive Capsulitis can truly heal - finally.
You don't need surgery to regain the movement of your shoulder. With improved blood flow and careful movement of your shoulder, you can heal your Adhesive Capsulitis and get back to your regular activities. You simply need the right treatment. You need Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®).
BFST® Wraps bring nutrient-rich, oxygenated blood flow to your shoulder tissue while you are at rest. This increase in blood flow works to improve your circulation. Blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Unfortunately, a shoulder with Adhesive Capsulitis has very restricted blood flow. While physical activity stimulates blood flow, this can be difficult with a stiff, sore shoulder. The BFST® Shoulder Wrap is your solution. BFST® treatments will work to restore function of your shoulder joint by promoting blood flow to the affected area. This is a much faster, more complete treatment than simply waiting it out for 2 years.
The BFST® Shoulder Wrap stimulates blood flow through your shoulder joint while you are at rest. This is very important because while at rest, a stiff, sore shoulder joint can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow. It is the high-quality, healthy blood that allows the joint to move, so adequate blood flow is required for the shoulder joint to regain proper function.
BFST® treatments are extremely pleasant and relaxing. They feel great. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their shoulder as the BFST® starts increasing their blood flow. We recommend that you do 3-4 BFST® treatments per day, spread out throughout the day. An ideal treatment regimen would be one treatment first thing in the morning, one in the afternoon, another treatment in the evening and the last treatment of the day right before bed.
Almost as important as the promotion of blood flow is the reminder of your condition. Without the reminder, you risk feeling a false sense of ability that could cause you to overdo it and make your Adhesive Capsulitis worse. The reminder is what will help you move with care so you don't aggravate your shoulder further. That's why we recommend wearing the Shoulder Wrap between treatments. After a treatment, simply unplug the controller from the wrap and gently tighten the straps. This will provide light support and protection for your shoulder, as well as act as a reminder of your injury.
Your Adhesive Capsulitis may be extremely painful and debilitating, causing you to reach for painkillers for quick and easy relief. Analgesics and NSAIDs such as ASA, acetaminophen or ibuprofen are commonly used as painkillers, but the truth is that these drugs do nothing 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 acutally 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 put you at a very high risk of further injury.
All painkillers do is mask the pain. They don't do anything to treat the underlying condition. Trust the pain. It's there for a reason. It's understandable that you may need to take painkillers from time to time. Just make sure you take them during times when you're at rest, such as when you're sleeping. Using them when you are active can lead to permanent damage.
ColdCure® Wraps are far superior to painkillers. They're much safer and more effective. The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap does an outstanding job of targeting the shoulder joint to relieve the pain associated with Adhesive Capsulitis. As soon as you put the ColdCure® Wrap on, you will feel the soothing, cool relief. With painkillers, you have to wait 20 minutes for the effects to kick in. Stop waiting and start relieving your pain with a ColdCure® Wrap.
When it comes to relieving the pain that comes with Adhesive Capsulitis, nothing works better than cold and compression.
ColdCure® gel packs were designed to address the need for a cold compression device that does not cause cold burns. 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 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® Shoulder Wrap is made entirely of very soft, stretchy material. It comes with 3 swappable cold packs that contain our unique XC RigiGel® formula. XC RigiGel® is firm yet flexible, meaning it always stays in place. Unlike gooey blue gel that migrates to other areas of the pack, our gel won't flow away from your shoulder joint. It will conform to your shoulder for an even, consistent 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 freezer to keep your therapy going. Do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief.
Every BFST® and ColdCure® Top Shoulder Wrap comes with 3 Extension Straps that you can attach to customize the fit of your wrap. This makes it easy to find the ideal fit for your shoulder. Some people won't need much extension, while some people will need more, which is why we include a Small Strap, a Medium Strap and a Large Strap with every Top Shoulder Wrap.

Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating 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®, plus the healing benefits of BFST®, resulting in the absolute best treatment for your Adhesive Capsulitis.
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 (lifting, reaching, 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.
As an FDA Registered Class II medical device, the BFST® Wrap meets very high standards of quality, safety and efficacy. In order to keep you safe and ensure effective treatments, the BFST® device complies with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards. Even though BFST® Wraps are high quality medical grade devices, they are still available to the public to buy and use at home, just like lower quality consumer goods.
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 shoulder and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your shoulder joint, working quickly to restore motion to your shoulder.
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 their shoulder joint begins to regain motion. 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 shoulder. 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 by bringing healthy blood flow to your shoulder joint. 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 significant.
The BFST® Shoulder device comes with the Energy Web® inserted inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around the unique shape of your shoulder, for complete coverage of your Adhesive Capsulitis. This ensures that there is an even distribution of energy over your entire shoulder. The Wrap comes with 3 Extension Straps (Small, Medium & Large) that allow you to customize the fit. No matter your size, you can find the right fit for your body.
When you're recovering from Adhesive Capsulitis, the pain ends long before you've regained movement of your shoulder. In fact, the pain is usually gone once you're 20-30% healed. The recovery 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 shoulder is still healing. This means you need to keep doing BFST® treatments in order to regain full movement of your shoulder joint. Doing regular BFST® treatments for 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.
As an FDA Registered Class I medical device, the ColdCure® Wrap exceeds all government and health agency regulatory requirements for cold therapy, specifically for use in treating conditions such as Adhesive Capsulitis. 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.
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 will keep 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 1-2 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 correct method to use when treating a soft tissue injury. The truth is that ice can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your skin and 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 is below the freezing point of water.
The ColdCure® Shoulder Wrap comes with 3 large gel packs that contain 10x more gel per lb than other products. When stored in the freezer, our gel packs also have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products, for faster relief of your pain. More cooling power also means longer treatment times without having to get up and switch the packs. Bigger packs with more gel inside, plus maximum cooling power equals an overall better, more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Shoulder gel packs are custom designed for the shape of the shoulder. This ensures that your Adhesive Capsulitis receives an even distribution of cooling power. Every one of our ColdCure® Wraps comes with specially designed gel packs for the body part they're intended to treat. We don't just use one generic shaped gel pack with all of our wraps. Every body part is uniquely shaped, which is why every one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. This ensures the best treatment and coverage possible. This product was 100% designed to treat Adhesive Capsulitis.
While blue gel packs are notorious for having hot and cold spots, our unique XC RigiGel® formula distributes the cold energy evenly throughout the entire gel pack. When cold pressure is applied to a shoulder with Adhesive Capsulitis, 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 shoulder will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack, every time.
XC Gel® packs have 2 different colored sides: a white side and a gold side. Both sides have all the same benefits that our innovative XC RigiGel® formula has to offer. XC Gel® packs can be inserted inside the pack with the white side facing towards your shoulder or away from your shoulder since they're not side specific.
