Neck Injury Treatment
Here's How to Heal:
In order to get your tendonitis or injured tendon 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
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 neck injuries. 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 neck 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 entire neck area. 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 neck, 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 neck 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 neck 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:
- Tendon tears or strains

Best Results Using: BFST and ColdCure with KB Tape - Combination Therapy
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.
Step 1: Reduce Swelling and Inflammation
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.
Step 2: Heal Your Injury
Introduce your BFST® treatments slowly, once your swelling and inflammation is under control. 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.
If you are planning on being active throughout the day, complete a BFST® treatment before any type of physical activity. 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 activity.
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. 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.
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.
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.
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.
