Relieve Pain. Reduce Swelling.

How to Deal With Inflammation

The best way to treat the pain and swelling experienced following an injury is to apply cold to the injured area. Often patients will use painkillers to deal with discomfort relating to their injury, but using this method is dangerous. Painkillers do nothing to treat the pain or inflammation associated with an injury, merely covering up the damage or even making the injury worse. Instead of painkillers, use cold to relieve this pain safely and effectively.

The problem with many ice gels is that they do not properly distribute cold evenly over the whole injury, and do not stay cold for long. The way to fix this problem is to use a ColdCure® cold compression wrap. ColdCure® wraps use thicker, bigger wraps that hold their shape to keep the cold on the injury.

Superior Gel

Most ordinary gels are very thin and don't hold much gel. The gel they do hold can't even stay on the injury, instead moving around unevenly when pressure is applied. This makes most ordinary gels ineffective for treating injuries. ColdCure® wraps, however, use RigiGel® gel packs that are much bigger and thicker than regular ones, and hold their shape instead of flowing away when compression is introduced. RigiGel® gel packs offer superior temperature balancing as well in addition to the sheer amount of rigid gel, ensuring the entire injured area receives an equal amount of relief from pain and swelling.

Use Cold, not Ice

It's common for many people to put ice on their injuries to relieve pain and keep swelling down. However, they are only putting themselves at risk of further damage to their tissue. Ice from the freezer is too cold and can often burn the skin over the injury. To solve this, ColdCure® RigiGel® is designed to be stored in the fridge, where it is not too cold to burn but is more than enough to treat pain and inflammation. There's no need to put yourself at further risk.

Quality Wraps

Each ColdCure® wrap is made of soft, comfortable Neoprene. They are designed with quality in mind for patients to enjoy wearing. The wraps are built to be injury-specific; there is a variety of wraps in shapes that fit the forms of many common injured body parts such as the knee or shoulder. Their unique shape allows for the best and most comfortable coverage for the entire injured area.

Paired with Revolutionary ColdCure® Wraps

RigiGel® technology is one of the key components in the design of ColdCure® wraps. The wraps combine the benefits of cold therapy with compression and comfort, improving on all the models to create the ultimate pain and swelling solution. It's recommended that patients start using a ColdCure® wrap following an injury to alleviate the discomfort and swelling. With the cold and compression aspects working together along with the powerful RigiGel® and Perpachill® technologies, ColdCure® provides the best possible solution to post-injury pain and swelling.

Bottom of foot pain but mainly under the heels

Hi there, new to the forum, suffering from plantar fasciitis for some time.
What has been working well for you?

Re: Bottom of foot pain but mainly under the heels

Hi Bethesource,

Welcome to the forum! I'm a treatment advisor with King Brand, and can answer any questions you may have. When it comes to plantar fasciitis, we have a couple of products that are highly effective at reducing pain on the bottom of the foot and the heel.

The Foot ColdCure Wrap is effective at reducing pain, swelling, and inflammation, and is used as an "as needed" treatment. Here's a link to that product. https://shop.kingbrand.com/product_info.php?tid=3013b5510b81112e129b396323f40077&xc=04bba1b70f8cdf1f2cc059419fc17e7323aecb70&xcu=1&products_id=200

The Plantar BFST Wrap is an electrical device that plugs into the wall, and produces electromagnetic energy to subdermally heal soft tissue injuries such as plantar fasciitis. It's intended to be used 3-4 times daily and treatments last 20 minutes. Here's a link to that product as well. https://shop.kingbrand.com/product_info.php?tid=3013b5510b81112e129b396323f40077&xc=04bba1b70f8cdf1f2cc059419fc17e7323aecb70&xcu=1&products_id=206

Please note that when you click on the product, you will be able to see a treatment zone showing in yellow the effective treatment area.

I hope this helps!

Re: Bottom of foot pain but mainly under the heels

Hi TallyMarks

I've just started using the Plantar BFST Wraps a couple of weeks ago.
I initially started with one wrap, but since I have the issue with both feet, I've purchased 2nd BFST wrap so that I can do the 20 minute
treatment on both feet at the same time instead of having to switch.
Does it matter if I use BFST wraps with or without socks?

What about exercises or stretches for the foot? any recommendations??

Do you recommend using barefoot shoes like Xeroshoes or similar to use?

Also, I'll look further into the Foot ColdCure wrap.

Thank you.

Re: Bottom of foot pain but mainly under the heels

Hi Bethesource,

We typically recommend using the BFST on bare skin, with about two fingers space between the wrap and your skin.

As for exercises or stretches, I don't have any specific stretches to recommend, but I do advise paying close attention to any pain signals your body may send you during exercises or stretching. Certain exercises or stretches can actually aggravate your injury further, so if you do an activity that causes pain or discomfort, I suggest listening to the pain and doing it less or not doing it at all.

I am not familiar with Xeroshoes, but after seeing their website, their shoes sound like they promote a healthier, more natural way of walking, so if those work for you - awesome!

I can tell you've definitely done your research and that you're very motivated to heal. Consistent use of the BFST will help to heal soft tissue injuries, so you are on the right track! :)
