Muscle Injury Treatment
Here's How to Heal:
In order to get your injured muscles fully healed as fast and effectively as possible, you need to treat the injury. Painkillers and anti-inflammatories DO NOT help you heal and can even make the healing process longer, and having surgery will mean long-term consequences and prevent full recovery. Instead, you need to alleviate the swelling and discomfort, then promote bloodflow to the area to heal the injury.
It's recommended you use ColdCure® and BFST® (Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy) wraps. Both are high quality medical devices that set the industry standard for injury treatment.
Here's what you need to do:
- Use ColdCure® to reduce the pain and reduce the swelling
- Use BFST® every day to improve blood flow and repair the damaged tissue
- Rest the injured muscle
BFST® Repairs the Tissue
Using advanced technology, Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) medical devices promote increased circulation, accelerating the healing process to the next level. Blood flow is crucial to fast tissue repair! Use BFST® to heal the tissue after your swelling.Click here for more information!
ColdCure® Treats the Pain
ColdCure® cold packs relieve pain and reduce inflammation after your injury. These wraps can hold the cold longer than other cold wraps using RigiGel® technology which also distributes cold evenly over the injured area. Cold is much safer than ice, which is too cold and can burn skin.Click here for more information!
Certified Medical Devices
ColdCure® and BFST® Wraps are FDA registered, and are certified safe medical treatments for pulled or torn muscles. You can rest easy knowing you are using only professional treatment to heal your injury.
The Ultimate Solution
Recovery can be easy if you use the right treatment. Simply follow these steps to get you and your injury on the road to fast recovery.
Step One: Reduce the Swelling
To reduce the inflammation or pain following a muscle injury, use a ColdCure® wrap for the best post-injury treatment. Before you can start healing, you need to make sure the swelling is gone. ColdCure® wraps, unlike other gels, hold their shape and spread the cold out evenly over the damaged muscle tissue. Cold is better than using ice, which burns the skin and is uncomfortable to wear. ColdCure® wraps are stored in the fridge and keep that cold in longer than other wraps, so you can wear it without switching out gels as often.
Step Two: Heal the Tissue
In order to heal quickly, you need to take action to accelerate the healing process. One of the best ways to do this is to improve your circulation. Better blood flow means that your body can deliver oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to the injured muscles, for the fastest treatment. A Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Wrap offer the best solution, as it penetrates deep under the skin to the damaged tissue.
REMEMBER: If you are still experiencing swelling, you need to reduce the inflammation before using BFST® to heal the tissue. Using heat or BFST® before the swelling in your muscles has gone down will only make your injury worse. Do not combine cold and hot treatments at the same time.
Comfortable High Quality Wraps
Both wraps uphold a high standard of comfort. Each is made of soft, high quality Neoprene and crafted specifically for soft muscle tissue injuries. These devices are shaped with your injury in mind. The ColdCure® gel itself is no ordinary design. It is made to surround the entire injured area, enveloping it with the pain relieving power of RigiGel®. The BFST's® patented Energy Web® is also designed to provide coverage across the whole injury, and improves circulation throughout the area.
These wraps work great for:
- Muscle Contusion
- Pulled Muscles
- Muscle Tears
- Sprained or Strained Muscles

Hot or Cold!?! & will Medicare accept your products!
I am 68 yrs old. I have had OsteoArthritis for many years. I'm sorry this is long!
I have been, on & off, a BlackJack Dealer at casinos since 2000. This last year, 2015, I had to take off for 2 surgeries! I put it off for a long time, & finally gave in, I had more pain than I could stand. One on my back, & the other Hip Replacement.
I took off for Medical leave, thinking I would be off for 2-4 months. The first surgery did not take care of the problem. 3 & a half months later I had the Hip Replacement. I have to admit that the surgery took care of the problem! Although I will never be the same again, movement wise etc.
Regardless, not realizing that Dealing was actually exercising my shoulders & arms. When I took off for what wind up being almost a year without working. Meanwhile I was using my arms/shoulders to support myself from the discomfort on the hip , to sit down, to get up etc.(before the surgeries). Now I'm almost healed from both of my surgeries, but my shoulders started to hurt a few months ago.
The Hip surgeons sent me to Physical Therapy for 2 months to see if that helped. I did get stronger!! I was exercising w/ the 'bands' & I went from 'Yellow, the easiest of them, to Red, to Green, to Blue!? so it was obvious that I was getting stronger, but I kept hurting, some days worse than others.
Surgeon sent me to another Orthopedic doctor for that type of injury. I was X-Rayed & the Orthopedic doctor said that both of my Rotator Cuffs are damage. The Right RC is almost all gone. They will eventually do an MRI to see the specifics of the injuries.
Many years ago I have had an RC injury & exercising it to strengthen the muscles around it I recouped! He agreed to try to strengthen the muscles around it so this new Orthopedic doctor is 'sending me back to Physical Therapy!' but I'm hesitant because??.. I went on vacation for 2 weeks after going to the PT the Surgeon send me to, & I didn't exercised at all, and I noticed the pain eased a lot!! Then I found you by 'accident' (I know, there are no accidents/coincidences:-). And when I read in your web site that "I NEED TO REST SO THE INJURY WILL HEAL!!", I have to say I agree, because of what happened during my vacation.
So my QUESTION to you is. To start w/ your Products on my shoulders!! WHICH IS BETTER? HOT OR COLD!?! For some reason I tend to think is the hot!! that would be good for my injuries!!
What is your advice!?! And ALSO, does the same product work for both shoulders, or are they specific Right or Left!?
Another important QUESTION. I saw that you say you don?t take Health Insurance. However, there are Claim Forms that I can try to get my money back from my insurance, doing all the right steps to apply etc.
So my QUESTION is:
DO YOU KNOW IF MEDICARE HAS EVER ?ACCEPTED? THESE FORMS AND ACTUALLY ?PAYED? SOMEONE THAT USED YOUR PRODUCTS!?!
Not working for a year has drained all my savings, and there is not way I can afford your products! But I can try to see if the family can help me buy, at least one of the shoulder products.
Thank you for your time, I apologize this is so long! Sincerely, Connie Cala
Re: Hot or Cold!?! & will Medicare accept your products!
Thank you so much for your interest in King Brand Connie!
So sorry to hear about all of the issues you have faced, and now you are dealing with Rotator Cuff injuries in your shoulders.
We do have products that will help to heal your Rotator Cuff injuries. We have recently launched new Shoulder Wraps that target the RC area where you have pain. First, as you mentioned, REST is very important! RC injuries are chronic and can be re-injured very easily with even the smallest amount of stretching, movement or even by picking up something that seems light-weight.
Next, we recommend ColdCure to help relieve pain and inflammation. Once the pain has decreased by using the ColdCure Wraps, then you would move on to the BFST Wrap.
BFST stands for Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy and uses Electromagnetic Energy to increase blood flow to help you heal quickly. We recommend a 20 minute BFST treatment first thing in the morning, last thing at night before bed and 1 or 2 other times throughout the day. If you over-use or strain the shoulder, do a ColdCure treatment and then wait at least 45 minutes before doing another BFST treatment. If you decide to go back to Physical Therapy in the future, do a BFST treatment before Physio and then a ColdCure treatment after!
The new shoulder wraps we have recently launched are called the Top Shoulder BFST Wrap and the Top Shoulder ColdCure Wrap. They are right and left side specific, but can be worn on both shoulders; order the side that you have the most issues with. The other shoulder will be harder to get the wrap on and off, but it can be done!
Here is a link with more information about the Top Shoulder Wraps:
As to your question about insurance: some private medical plans do cover the BFST and ColdCure products. There are billing codes that you can use to call your insurance to see if you would be covered. The codes are as follows:
E0210 for any BFST product
A9273 for any ColdCure product
Hope this helps! Please feel free to contact us if you require any further information or assistance.
