Professional ACL Injury Treatment
Healing Solutions for Serious ACL 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.
Surgery for Your Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)?
Your knee is very complicated inside. You have lots of ligaments, muscles, tendons and cartilage in order to make your knee work the way you expect it to. Your knee supports your body to allow you to stand in an upright position. It helps you go from a seated position to a standing position. It helps you walk. It is a very important part of your daily life.
The ACL is one of the most commonly injured ligaments of the knee. Most often when speaking with your doctor regarding your ACL injury, you're given a referral to a specialist who then immediately recommends surgery. Surgery should never be a first option given for recovery. Most often surgery is not needed, but the specialist that you're referred to is only comfortable with this recommendation, because that is their specialty.
How Can I Manage My ACL Pain?
ACL injuries can be quite debilitating as the ACL is one of two major ligaments located inside the knee.
Along with the PCL, the ACL helps to stabilize the knee joint.
ACL injuries can occur when stopping or changing direction suddenly when running, twisting or extending the knee too far, landing from a jump, or from a direct hit to the knee.
Because the ACL is located deep within your knee, the pain can sometimes feel like a deep-rooted pain.
Throughout your recovery, you'll experience two different types of pain: a sharp and stabbing-like pain, and a more dull pain that intensifies over time.
You want to control the pain, but you also want to feel the pain.
This means that taking pain killers in order to help you 'get through the day' won't benefit your recovery.
It will only cause more damage.
When you have an ACL injury and you make an unconscious movement that your body doesn't like, you're going to feel a very sharp pain in your knee that will almost take your breath away.
This is the pain that you would want to prevent with pain killers.
But, this is the pain that is reminding you to not move like that.
If you continue to move in those positions that cause those sharp pains, you are most likely going to cause further damage.
If you mask the pain, you will have no idea what damage you have done until the pain killers have worn off.
During activity you might notice that you have a dull ache that is increasing in intensity.
This pain is most often related to inflammation or swelling.
Your body creates inflammation and swelling throughout your recovery to help protect your injury.
As soon as you notice this increase in pain, you should treat it as soon as possible.
Should you use painkillers? No! The best way to treat inflammation and swelling is to use cold and compression. It starts working instantly.
Cold does an excellent job at relieving pain in your knee so you can get the instant pain relief that you're looking for.
There's nothing better to treat your swelling and inflammation than the ColdCure® Knee Wrap.
The ColdCure® Knee Wrap provides just the right amount of compression and cold in order to reduce your swelling, inflammation, and most importantly, your pain quickly and effectively.
Preventing Re-Injury When You Can't Rest
Whether you know that you have an ACL injury, or you suspect that you're dealing with an ACL injury, it's always recommended to try and get an X-Ray or MRI to get a proper diagnosis.
Afterall, the more you know, the better you can take care of your injury.
If you do know, you should tape your knee to help prevent re-injury from your activities throughout the day.
You see most professional athletes taped up because they inevitably get injured, and they can't stop doing their thing, so they tape when they are active to try to keep the damage to a minimum.
Generally speaking, tight bands around your joints are a bad idea.
They squeeze the area more than they give it support and that squeezing during activity can cause extra rubbing and strain on your ligaments and tendons, possibly leading to more injuries over time.
Athletes tape because tape gives support from the skin side without squeezing the joint and putting you at further risk.
So keep your activity to a minimum while you're on the mend, and tape when you have to be active.
In time you will be able to increase your activity level, gradually, as you put your issues behind you for good.
How to Heal Your ACL Quickly
You see it all the time.
A professional athlete has a knee injury and they are back to competing again within a matter of weeks, while most people suffer for months on end.
How can that be? The difference is that most people take pain killers and rest, while athletes take action.
Pro athletes are using these tools to heal quickly.
Why not heal like a pro athlete?
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 ACL 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 ACL as much as possible. Using KB Support Tape will help with this. Giving your knee a rest is hard, but it is very important in the early stages of healing.
Do this and your ACL injury can truly heal - finally.
You can accelerate your healing process by stimulating blood flow. This is what is happening when Physiotherapists treat you with Ultrasound. Ultrasound is a diathermic medical device that stimulates blood flow in deep tissue to promote circulation which in turn promotes healing. The issue is that the benefit of diathermy treatments last for around 4 hours so one treatment every two or three days is kind of like taking a Tylenol once every few days to treat a migraine. Once in a while won't solve the problem. You need regular, consistent treatments. And Ultrasound needs a technician to treat you - you can't get one yourself to do it at home. There is a diathermic product you can get to use at home though.
King Brand 'BFST' stands for 'Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy'. BFST® devices are diathermic medical devices that promote blood flow that you can buy yourself and use at home or wherever you are. This way you can give yourself diathermic treatments several times each day, maximizing the benefits of this type of medical treatment, and helping you heal as fast as you can.

So that's excellent!

Recovery and Physiotherapy
Physiotherapists and doctors recommend stretching and strengthening exercises because it helps to promote blood flow through your injured knee.
Often, we reduce our activity when we are injured and that leads to weakening muscles called Atrophy.
Physiotherapy is also intended to help strengthen the surrounding muscles to rebuild that lost muscle.
But, it can be harmful if stretching and exercises are started too early.
Your injury first needs to stabilize, and in order to stabilize the injury you need to rest.
If you still have significant injury, any physio you do should start off very light.
Our advice is don't start Physical Therapy until your condition has stabilized.
When you start, if you feel pain during or after PT, speak up!
Your clinician can't feel what you feel, so it is very important to advocate for yourself during physio.
Let them know how it feels at each stage so they can use that as a guide to treat you properly.
PT is not supposed to hurt and if it does you may be re-injuring your knee.
When you rest, your blood flow slows down which doesn't help your injury heal.
This is why BFST® is so important to start early on in your recovery.
The BFST® will increase blood flow - when you can't exercise and stretch - to promote the healing process.
That stimulation also helps prevent re-injury when you become more active.
Start BFST® early. The earlier the better!
Use the BFST® to warm up your knee before PT and before any other heavy activity.
This will help prevent further injury as a result of the PT activity.
At the beginning of your injury, even before the injury has had a chance to stabilize and long before you start physio, the ColdCure® Wraps will help keep the pain and swelling under control.
The gentle, firm pressure during treatments will also help to keep your swelling and inflammation under control inside your injured knee.
It is the activity and motion that actually creates the inflammation to protect your injury from further damage, so after PT you want to counter that effect and apply cold and compression - and lots of it - to stop inflammation and swelling in it's tracks!
Always use your ColdCure® wrap after any heavy activity and after PT.
The KB Support Tape™ should be applied every morning and worn all day long to help prevent re-injury, including to PT.
For many people, King Brand® products, used in the comfort of your own home, are all that is required without having to attend and pay for Physical Therapy appointments.
Because you don't have to move to use them, the King Brand BFST® and ColdCure® Wraps can be started any time.
BFST® Devices are Electrical Medical Appliances that actively stimulate blood flow in injured tissue.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your entire knee while you are at rest.
This is very important because while at rest, an unaided and inflamed ACL can otherwise have seriously impeded blood flow.
It is the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood that enables the healing process, so adequate blood flow is required for your ACL to heal properly and quickly.
The BFST® device is easy to use. Put it on, plug it in, turn it on and sit back and relax.
People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their knee as the BFST® starts the blood flowing.
Since the effects of each 20 minute treatment last for 4 hours, we recommend you spread your treatments out throughout the 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.
The promotion of blood flow has obvious benefits.
The reminder of the injury is incredibly important too, because avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery.
The BFST® device is designed to be worn even when turned off to help protect your ACL from re-injury, and this goes a long way towards shortening your recovery time. After a treatment, gently tighten the wrap to your knee and unplug the controller. This will act as a reminder of your injury and provide your knee with lightweight support and protection.
What Does the BFST® Feel Like?
The BFST® treatments are very comfortable and soothing.
The BFST® uses Electromagnetic Energy to stimulate blood flowunderneath the surface of the skin.
It is warm, but not hot.
It does not vibrate like a massager. (You shouldn't use a massager on soft tissue injuries)
It does not cause your muscles to tense in jolts like with a TENS machine. (TENS machines are very bad for soft tissue injuries)
The BFST® isn't supposed to do either of those things.
Rather, it is soothing and sometimes gives you a gentle tingling sensation in the treatment area.
BFST® treatments are very pleasant and enjoyable.
Don't be confused, while the treatments feel gentle, they are still very powerful.
Think about an X-RAY or an MRI.
Even though you don't feel the energy during those procedures, a lot of energy is definitely going deep into your body.
If you put your ear close to the BFST® when it is on, you can actually hear it going through the cycles.
It's not loud, but you can hear it if you listen.
It isn't just delivering one energy level at one frequency.
Just like an MRI machine, the BFST® buzzes and hums and gets louder and more quiet as it goes through the treatment cycle.
It sounds just like a mini-MRI machine.
Over the 20 minute treatment period it goes through a treatment cycle to deliver the most energy in the most effective way.
It is designed to help give you the fastest healing time possible, in the comfort of your home.
During each BFST® treatment you will only feel a mild warming sensation.
If it feels hot you are using it on too high of a setting.
Over time, after several treatment sessions, the treatments will feel like they are getting less and less warm.
This is your body responding to the BFST® treatments by increasing your subdermal blood flow.
The more BFST® treatments you do, the less warmth you're going to feel.
This is a good sign.
Your tissue is becoming healthier.
Your body is getting stronger.
This means that your circulation through your injury is improving, and your injury is improving.
When the feeling of warmth during a treatment is almost all gone, this is the signal that it is time to move up to the next level.
People usually move up to the second level after a few weeks of treatment.

Dealing With Pain - Consult with us for Free!
An ACL Injury can be so painful and debilitating that it causes us to rely heavily on pain killers. But honestly, pain killers are not your friend. It is understandable that you are looking for the relief from pain. Remember, though, the pain is there to stop us from hurting the area further. The pain is your body saying please stop doing that! While pain killers are a welcome relief, they can be dangerous to take when you're active. Pain killers can completely block the pain signal, making you unaware of any further damage you could be doing to your knee. Pain killers should be restricted to times of rest.
When it comes to pain killers, some products are much more effective than others. Some can actually help your injury when used correctly and others will only make it worse. According to the National Institute of Health, our own government body tells us that Acetaminophen overdose is the leading cause for calls to Poison Control Centers (>100,000/year) and accounts for more than 56,000 emergency room visits. And acetaminophen (Tylenol) won't help you get better one bit. It only puts you at risk of more injury. If you want help choosing the right pain killer and want advice on how to use it more safely and correctly, give us a call at 1-844-400-2525. We will give you excellent guidance. No charge. No purchase necessary.
To maximize healing and minimize pain and swelling, complete a BFST® treatment right before bed. We can give you advice on medication you can take to reduce the pain and help you heal while you sleep. The BFST® treatment will work towards healing while you sleep, and the medication will work to relieve the pain and inflammation so that you can experience restful sleep. During the day, ColdCure® treatments are the best choice to continue to reduce inflammation while you are active. Our medical grade injury tape, KB Support Tape, is excellent for reducing re-injury and pain when you need to be active as well. If you're in pain, give us a call now for free advice 1-844-400-2525.
It does work. Its helping my knee immensely. I'm using the BFST the first thing in the morning, around noon, and then in the evening. Its really helping my knee. It works so well even brought this up to my Physical Therapist who has been working with me.

ColdCure® Devices Reduce Pain and Swelling.
ColdCure® Devices are NOT typical cold or ice packs.
For dealing with the swelling and pain associated with an ACL injury, nothing works better than cold compression.
The ColdCure® Knee Wrap is designed to conform to the unique shape of your knee. The 3 swappable gel packs included with the Knee Wrap are both firm and flexible, so the formula inside never moves away from your injury. Unlike other gel formulas that are watery and mushy, our amazing XC RigiGel® formula holds its shape and won't migrate to other parts of the wrap, even when put under heavy pressure for long periods of time. The gel packs are inserted inside the wrap one at a time, so you can always have the other two charging in the freezer to keep your therapy going.
ColdCure® Wraps were designed as a safe alternative to ordinary ice packs. While ordinary ice packs can freeze your skin and cause cold burns, when our gel packs are stored in the freezer, they pose no threat of freezing the skin. This means longer treatment times and less time spent swapping the gel packs in and out. It also means faster relief of pain and swelling. When you apply the ColdCure® Wrap to your knee, you will feel an immediate cooling sensation that will make the pain fade away. It will also do an incredible job of bringing down the uncomfortable swelling of your ACL Injury.
Not only does our gel hold its form, it's also soft and moldable at any temperature. This means the gel packs can conform to your knee at any temperature, even straight out of the freezer, so you always get an even and consistent cold treatment. Our gel is like rubber ice - it's firm enough to stay in place on your knee but still molds comfortably to your body.
Apply KB Support Tape any time you want extra support and protection for your ACL. You can wear it while you exercise, at work, when you're running errands, when you're doing housework, etc. and you'll hardly even notice. It's made of thin, stretchy material that allows you to wear it all day long.
You have 2 styles to choose from: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These 2 styles come in 3 different colors: 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 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 Strips of KB Support Tape are perfect 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.
In order to tape your knee to support your ACL, you're looking for a taping method that provides full support.
You want even support on both the inside and outside of your knee.
Taping should generally be done in a 'T' or 'X' pattern; and where the two pieces of tape overlap is where you would feel the most pain.
In the image shown, we used 2, 5" strips of tape on either side of the kneecap crossing over the ACL.
Applying KB Support Tape is easy! At each end of the tape, you are going to gently rest the tape down on the skin with 0% stretch, this is called your anchor.
In the middle, it's going to be stretched about 50% of the maximum amount it will stretch.
It doesn't have to be exact, as long as some stretch is applied around the kneecap.
You're going to start by applying the 5" strip from above and to the side of the knee cap on one side across and below it on the other.
It's easiest to gently tear the paper from the ends by simply pulling/stretching the tape and the paper will tear because it doesn't stretch.
The first 1", stick it to your leg without stretching.
Then stretch the middle of the tape as you apply it diagonally across your ACL to just below your kneecap.
At the end of the tape length, stop stretching it so the last 1" of tape goes down without any stretch.
The unstretched ends will make sure that the tape stays on your knee all day long while you're moving.
Repeat for the second 5" piece of tape going the other way so the two pieces form an X across your ACL.
Once the tape has been applied, rub the tape onto your knee and thigh to ensure it's fully adhered.
The above application for ACL injuries is only a suggestion.
We encourage you to experiment with other applications for ACL injuries to find the one that works best for you.
Every injury is different, and the pain felt is different.
As long as the tape is covering your pain, you're taping correctly.
Continue to modify your taping applications if your pain continues to move throughout your recovery.
I love them, thank you. I have a full ACL tear and a meniscus tear so they are helping tremendously right now.

BFST® for Rapid Healing ColdCure® for Pain & Swelling KB Tape to Prevent Re-Injury
Combination Therapy means using ColdCure® and BFST® in combination by alternating treatments, as well as using KB Support Tape. 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 ACL Injury.
Step 1: Reduce Swelling and Inflammation
A very important part of treating your ACL Injury is to use the ColdCure® Wrap 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. You can use it several times a day. Use it anytime you want pain relief and after any significant exercise of your knee even if it doesn't hurt afterward.
You should rely more heavily on ColdCure® treatments immediately after exercise because the inflammation will continue to re-develop when you are active. Being aggressive with back to back cold treatments after exercise will give your body a chance to get ahead of the inflammation, and prepare your knee for the blood flow that's needed to help heal quickly.
Step 2: Heal Your Injury
Introduce your BFST® treatments at your less active times of day and before significant exercise. Keep your swelling and inflammation under control with ColdCure® but do not use ColdCure® and BFST® close together. Use BFST® in the morning, before bed, and after longer periods of resting your injury. When doing your treatments, you should only feel a slight warming sensation. At any time if it feels HOT or uncomfortable, discontinue use as you still have too much inflammation and swelling to complete a treatment.
Each BFST® Treatment will last only 20 minutes, but the increase in blood flow will last up to four hours. Ideally your treatments should be spaced out throughout the day, so you can promote good blood flow all day long. If you can't do 3-4 treatments a day, your two most important treatments are first thing in the morning, and right before you go to bed. This will ensure that you have a great start to your day and you can rest well at night.
If you are planning on being active throughout the day, complete a BFST® treatment before any type of physical activity. It can be as simple as doing the dishes. Always assess how you are feeling after your activity, as there's a chance you may need to apply your ColdCure® to treat any new inflammation generated during your activities.
The goal with your BFST® Treatments is not to increase on the levels as quickly as possible, but to condition your circulatory system to allow for the much needed increased blood flow. Staying on the lowest level to where you feel any warmth - remember it's just a slight warmth - will be the most effective way to start healing your ACL Injury. When can you move up to the next level? You can move up in levels when you feel barely any warmth from the wrap at all. This means that you've successfully conditioned your circulation and you're ready to move up. Some people can move up in a few weeks, some people it takes a lot longer. It just depends on how well your body adjusts to the increase in blood flow.
Step 3: Treat Flare-Ups - Timing is Important
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. Remember, staying on top of your inflammation will allow you to complete more BFST® treatments throughout the day.
Wait 30-45 minutes after your ColdCure® treatment before doing 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, unless you notice an increase in pain during your BFST® Treatment.
ColdCure® treatments will slow down the blood flow, which isn't ideal, but sometimes necessary to relieve the swelling and inflammation generated. The BFST® will increase your blood flow which is important for faster healing.
Step 4: Use KB Support Tape™
KB Support Tape™ is very important to help with your injury recovery. As you move throughout the day, your skin and your tendons move with you. Using the KB Support Tape™over your injury will make your skin less flexible - therefore protecting your injury - without restricting your range of motion. KB Support Tape™ can be used at the same time as your BFST® and ColdCure® Treatments without any issues, but try to have your first BFST® treatment of the day without the KB Support Tape™ applied. After your BFST® treatment has been completed, then apply the tape. Removing the tape before the last BFST® treatment of the day will provide the best results.
Step 5: Complete The Healing Process
When you're recovering from ACL Injuries, 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 takes much longer than most people realize. You can follow this link for the full healing process!The key thing to remember is that long after the pain stops, your ACL Injury 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 to use KB Support Tape to help protect the knee from re-injury.
I just started using all of this yesterday, and I don't want to jump to conclusions, but it feels different already! I'm really excited about this because I hurt my knee almost 2 months ago, and sometimes when I'd roll over at night, the pain was incredible. I discovered this by accident and thought, well, it's a lot of money but I don't care, because I'll always use it in some form or the other, even if it's just the ice.

Medical Function - BFST® Wrap - Accelerated Healing
The BFST® Knee Wrap is an FDA Registered Class II medical device. In order to become FDA Registered, the BFST® device had to comply with hundreds of pages of regulations and standards. These regulations and standards are in place to ensure that FDA Registered devices like the BFST® Wrap meet very high standards of quality, safety and performance.
The Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) Wrap is designed to promote blood flow in the injured tissue below the dermal (fat and skin) layer. Utilizing our proprietary Energy Web®, specially controlled and incredibly safe, low levels of EMR energy envelops your knee and stimulates 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 on 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, your knee 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 your knee 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 doesn't mean better treatment. In fact, less heat means better treatment, so take your time moving up in levels.
BFST® Wraps far surpass heating pads in terms of therapeutic benefits. BFST® Wraps stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep below your skin. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your injured tissues. Heating pads can't do this. All heating pads do is bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. The difference between a BFST® Wrap and a heating pad is huge.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Knee device is enclosed inside a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap shapes the Energy Web® to mold around your knee, ensuring that there is an even distribution of energy over the entire injured area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that guarantee a perfect fit. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. The straps can be further tightened to provide snug support and protection for your knee. The device easily disconnects at the wrap from the power supply and controller so you are free to move around your home when not receiving treatment, while still wearing the wrap for comfort and ease.
The Medical Tape Advantage
What sets KB Support Tape apart from the rest? It's not athletic tape, it's medical 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 materials that are safer than most baby products, including diapers, clothes and toys. Don't let the big brand tapes fool you. Most of them are made with highly toxic materials, because there are no standards for athletic tape. Some big brand athletic tape glues even contain carcinogenic ingredients. At King Brand®, your health and safety is of utmost importance, which is why KB Support Tape is manufactured to such high standards.
Medical Function - ColdCure® Wrap - Extreme Pain Relief
The King Brand®ColdCure® Knee Wrap is an FDA Registered Class I medical device. This medical grade cold compression wrap is designed for home use. Cold and compression applied to an ACL injury immediately reduces 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. The ColdCure® Wrap exceeds 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 mushy, 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. 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 their temperature will just keep rising 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. If you find that the gel is too stiff from the freezer, leave it out for several minutes before inserting it into the wrap. This will make it more flexible, while still retaining maximum cold capacity.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury. 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 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. 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.
Each ColdCure® Knee Wrap comes with 3 large gel packs that contain 3x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of your ACL. When stored in the freezer, our XC® gel packs have 10x more cooling power per lb than standard gel packs. This means they stay cold longer so you won't have to swap the gels as often. Longer treatment times and more cold power means better control of swelling and less handling of your sore knee. This all results in an overall colder and more effective treatment.
ColdCure® Knee gel packs are enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The gel pack is specially designed for the shape of the knee to provide your injury with an even distribution of cooling power. Each body part is uniquely shaped, which is why each one of our ColdCure® Wraps comes with gel packs that are uniquely shaped too. We don't use one generic gel pack for all of our wraps. We provide custom designed gel packs for every part of the body because we know that in order to receive the best treatment possible, you need something that's designed specifically for the shape of the body part. The ColdCure® Knee Wrap has 100% been designed to treat ACL injuries.
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 an injured knee, 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 knee will receive the cooling power of the entire gel pack. The temperature-balancing power of this gel formula is unmatched.
The gel pack has 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. The gel packs can be inserted inside the wrap with the white side facing towards your knee or away from your knee since they're not side specific.
