If you have chronic wrist pain, this is a sign that you have injured the soft tissue (tendons, ligaments) deep below the skin. In order to get rid of the pain for good, you need to do more than use ice to control the pain. You need to heal the underlying injury causing that pain. This will help prevent the pain from coming back.
The most common treatment for wrist pain is rest and modification of our daily routine, which most of us don't have time for. Unfortunately, most of us use our wrists every day at home, at the workplace, or during sporting activities, which doesn't give us much time for rest and healing. Because most cases of wrist pain are caused by repetitive motions, many doctors will ask you to modify your activities or take more breaks during the day. It can be very difficult to accomplish any healing if you are not able to follow your doctor's orders.
King Brand® developed the BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps so you can relieve your pain and heal your injury faster.
If you really want to get better, here's exactly what you need to do.
You don't have to wait. You can heal much more quickly with the right treatment. For Wrist Pain, blood flow is the most critical element in rapid recovery. Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy® (BFST®) gives your damaged tissues the blood flow they need to heal quickly and completely.
The BFST® Wrist Wrap brings oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the injured area of your wrist. This increase in blood flow works to actively heal your damaged tissues. Unfortunately, an injured wrist at rest usually has very limited blood flow. While physical activity promotes blood flow, it can also lead to re-injury and a worsened condition. With the BFST® Wrist Wrap, blood flow can be stimulated in the injured area while you're at rest. With improved blood flow and without physical activity and the risk of re-injury, you can relieve your Wrist Pain at a surprisingly rapid rate.
BFST® stimulates blood flow through your wrist while you are at rest. This is very important because, while at rest, an unaided and inflamed wrist 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 wrist to heal properly and quickly.
BFST® treatments are extremely pleasant and relaxing. People often notice a slight tingling sensation and warmth deep in their wrist as the BFST® Wrap starts increasing their blood flow. Since the effects of each 20 minute BFST® treatment last for up to 4 hours, it's best to spread your treatments out over the course of your 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 you go to bed.
Almost as important as the promotion of blood flow is the reminder of your injury. This is what helps you move with care so you don't re-injure your wrist, making your condition even worse. Avoiding re-injury is fundamental to rapid recovery. That's why the BFST® Wrap is designed to be worn between treatments. This will provide your wrist with light support and protection. Continuing to wear the BFST® Wrap after your treatments will also act as a reminder of your injury and help you avoid re-injury.
When Wrist Pain becomes chronic and interferes with our life, it can cause us to rely on painkillers for relief. Analgesics and 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, 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. Cortisone injections are used in extreme cases but these too are intended to address the pain. They do not promote healing of the injury itself and they put you at a very high risk of further injury.
Painkillers don't do anything to address the underlying cause of your Wrist Pain. All they do is mask the pain, making you feel a false sense of ability that can lead to further injury and strain. 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 Wrist 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.
For dealing with the swelling and pain that comes with a Wrist Injury or Condition, nothing works better than our cold compression wrap.
ColdCure® technology was developed to address the need for a cold compression device that does not freeze the skin or underlying tissue. ColdCure® gel packs pose no threat of cold burns or permanent tissue damage caused by freezing of the skin. This makes them much safer to use than other products that use ice. 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® Wrist Wrap comes with 3 swappable gel 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 your injury. It won't move, even under heavy pressure for long periods of time. It always stays in place to treat your Wrist Pain. 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.
When you're not doing BFST® or ColdCure® treatments, your fragile, injured tissue becomes vulnerable to further damage. You don't want to re-strain your wrist and make your pain worse than it already is. Applying KB Support Tape to your wrist will help protect and support your tissue between your BFST® and ColdCure® treatments.
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 to prevent re-injury. That's why we call it armor for your injury.
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 styles: Pre-Cut Strips and a Continuous Roll. These styles also come in 4 different colors: Black, Beige, Blue and Pink. There's no functional difference between the colors, they just allow you to express your individual style.
The Pre-Cut Strips of KB Support Tape are fast, easy and convenient. Since they're already cut into ready-to-use strips, you can just apply and go! Every 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 perfect if you're looking for a more customizable tape. You can cut the Tape into a variety of different sizes and lengths to achieve a completely unique application for your wrist. Each box contains 1 Continuous Roll of KB Support Tape that is 2 inches wide and 16 feet long.
The image above is only an example of a Wrist Pain taping application. We encourage you to try a variety of different taping applications for your Wrist Pain 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 wrist, apply tape there.
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.
If you have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, the BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps are exactly what you need to relieve the pain and start healing. The ColdCure® Wrap will alleviate your pain and inflammation, which is the first step. Next, treat your wrist with the BFST® Wrap to heal your damaged tissues. In general, you should use ColdCure® whenever you have a flare-up of pain and/or swelling, and use BFST® during the times you are not experiencing a significant amount of pain and/or swelling.
Sufferers of De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis will benefit greatly from the BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps. The Wraps can be applied so they cover the bottom of the thumb and hand area, where the pain is usually felt the most. The ColdCure® Wrap does an excellent job of relieving pain and swelling, while the BFST® Wrap is designed to promote blood flow. By bringing additional blood flow to the affected area, the BFST® Wrap works to heal the damaged tissues in your thumb and wrist.
If you have Intersection Syndrome, we have the products that will control the pain and accelerate the healing process. These devices are the BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps. The Wraps can be applied so they target the exact area of injury, which is usually just below the wrist, on the forearm. We recommend that you do your ColdCure® treatments in 20 minute intervals throughout the day, or as long as you need the relief. Once your inflammation has subsided, do
3-4 BFST® treatments per day for best results.
Many people suffer from wrist tendonitis, usually due to repetitive strain. Usually, rest is recommended, but it isn’t always practical. To get on top of your symptoms and start healing, use our BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps. The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap will work to get rid of the pain and swelling. The BFST® Wrist Wrap will stimulate healthy, high-quality blood flow in the affected area, which works to heal your damaged tissues. This is the ideal treatment solution for you.
If you have a TFCC Injury, you don't need to resort to invasive surgery. You can heal your TFCC Tears with our BFST® and ColdCure® Wrist Wraps. These Wraps are specially designed for the shape of the wrist, ensuring a comfortable fit and treatment. Use the ColdCure® Wrap to bring down inflammation and relieve the pain. Use the BFST® Wrap to speed up the healing process by stimulating blood flow deep down in the soft tissue. These two products together are the ultimate in healing.
Your healing is important to us. Every BFST® and ColdCure® Wrap purchase comes with the free professional consulting services of our King Brand® Advisors. One of our helpful Advisors will contact you 4 or 5 days after your order has been delivered. This is to find out how your treatments are going and answer any questions you may have. Our Advisors have been thoroughly trained on BFST® and ColdCure® technology and treatments. They are also knowledgeable when it comes to treating wrist pain.

While one of our Advisors will follow-up with you directly, you are welcome to contact us if you need any help.
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 Wrist Pain.
Use the BFST® Wrap during the times when your wrist is feeling its best. For example, when you don't have any inflammation or visible swelling, and pain is at a minimum. Do a BFST® treatment first thing in the morning as a "warm-up" for your wrist, and another treatment right before bed to help your wrist 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 wrist (typing, playing racquet sports, etc). This can also be used for preventative measures after a full recovery to optimize your blood flow.
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.
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.
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.

BFST® Wraps are FDA Registered Class II medical devices. This means it has been designed, manufactured and tested to meet 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 and incredibly safe, low levels of EMR energy envelop your wrist and stimulate blood flow in the soft tissue deep beneath the skin. The resulting stimulation brings healthy, high-quality blood to the injured area of your wrist, 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 within your wrist. 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 wrist 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 in terms of therapeutic benefits. BFST® Wraps work to actively heal your damaged tissue by stimulating additional blood flow in the area of injury. Heating pads simply bring blood to the surface of your skin, making it hot to the touch. BFST® Wraps promote blood flow to your injury by penetrating deep below your skin and fat. Heating pads can't do this.
The Energy Web® of the BFST® Wrist device is enclosed in a soft, comfortable neoprene wrap. The wrap molds the Energy Web® around the entire wrist to ensure that there is an even distribution of energy over the affected area. The wrap is opened and closed using attached Velcro® straps that allow you to customize the fit. After treatment, the wrap does not need to be removed. Simply unplug the device from the outlet and gently tighten the straps around your wrist. This will act as a reminder of your injury between treatments.
When you're recovering from a Wrist Injury or Condition, 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 wrist 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 wrist to help prevent re-injury.
ColdCure® Wraps are FDA Registered Class I medical devices. Cold and compression applied to a wrist with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome 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. 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 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. 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. 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.
Most people think that RICE - Rest, Ice, Compression & Elevation - is the formula to follow when treating a soft tissue injury, but the proper solution is actually 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. The truth is that temperatures below freezing can be be dangerous. Ice can actually freeze your skin and numb your nerves, causing 'cold burns' and even permanent damage to your underlying tissue.
XC Gel® packs contain 10x more gel than other packs, for maximum coverage of your injured wrist. When stored in the freezer, XC Gel® packs have 3x more cooling power per lb than other products. This means faster relief of pain and swelling. It also means they stay cold longer so you won't have to swap the gels as often. More gel plus superior cooling power means an overall better, more effective cold treatment.
ColdCure® gel packs are custom designed to conform to the shape of your wrist. They wrap all the way around your wrist to provide the painful area with an even distribution of cooling power. We don't just use one generic shaped gel pack with all of our wraps. All of our gel packs are specially designed for the shape of the specific body part you're treating. Each body part is uniquely shaped, which is why each one of our gel packs is uniquely shaped too. The ColdCure® Wrist Wrap has 100% been designed to treat Wrist Pain.
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 a wrist 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, swollen wrist 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 wrist or away from your wrist since they're not side specific.
