Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Here's How to Heal:
In order to get your plantar fascia 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
- Avoid putting weight on your foot
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® Plantar Wraps are FDA registered, and are certified safe medical treatments for Plantar Fasciitis. 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 caused by Plantar Fasciitis, use a ColdCure® Plantar 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 Plantar. 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 Plantar Fascia, for the fastest treatment. A Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy (BFST®) Plantar Wrap offers 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 caused by Plantar Fasciitis 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 foot 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:
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Heel Spurs
- Tendonitis of the foot
- Other foot injuries

Debunking Common Plantar Fasciitis Myths
I have so many questions about Kingbrands page on "Debunking Common Plantar Fasciitis Myths"
Any information, research, or explanation that could help me to better understand the truth would be greatly appreciated.
So many in the medical field and professional doctors recommend and suggest doing the exact things kingbrand says could cause more harm than help for Plantar Fasciitis. Why is this? ??? ??? Is there two different schools of thought or two different views based on the same studies and research? I mean, either there is proof that stretching and massaging the P.F. Ligament helps or there is proof that stretching and massaging the P.F. Ligament hurts and is causing more harm. Which is it ??? From reading all the information on this kingbrand website I believe these products could help me with my P.F. it makes since to me. But what doesn't make since to me is the conflicting information from so called reputable, respectable, and professional authority figures in the medical field. Why so much conflict around something so seemingly simple and basic in terms of physical anatomy and the way the body functions? Are ligaments meant to be stretched and massaged? Can stretching and massaging my Plantar Fascia Ligament cause me more injury? Why do doctors and medical professionals recommend these things if they can cause more injury? :o Why is this topic not straight forward and simple?
Trying to understand my Painful Plantar Fasciitis,
Re: Debunking Common Plantar Fasciitis Myths
I do agree that there is a LOT of misinformation on the internet, which is why we've dedicated a whole page to Myths that are commonly practiced. We hear from lots of customers who have been suffering with Plantar Fasciitis for months and months, and sometimes years - when you don't really have to!
Think of your Plantar Fascia as a piece of paper. When your Plantar Fascia is healthy with no damage to it, just like the paper, it's really hard to tear. Now when you have an injury to your Plantar Fascia, that is very small 'micro-tears'. When you put a small tear into the piece of paper, all of the sudden it is really easy to tear further.
Now you have to be careful that you don't continue tearing your Plantar Fascia, because just like the paper it's easy to tear further and lengthen your healing process.
This is exactly why we do not recommend stretching, orthotics or anything that's going to cause extra pressure on the bottom of your foot.
You're right, there's always two different views based on the same studies. So I hope that you read through all of this (I'm sorry I'm long winded) and the choice is always yours for what modality you choose. We've never stated that this is the ONLY way that you're going to heal, but merely the modality that makes the most sense when you look at how your body functions when you're injured and healthy. That is really what King Brand is about, supporting our customers and potential customers to heal in the best way that they choose.
Yes, your plantar is meant to be stretched and massaged. Stretching and massaging your Plantar Fascia ligament while it's healthy will always promote good blood flow and help prevent re-injury. Stretching and massaging while your injured will cause me to reference your tendon to a piece of paper again. It's very fragile in it's injured state.
Always work within pain boundaries. Your body is giving you pain, because it's telling you that you're working too hard and hurting it. Massaging and stretching with no pain is completely acceptable. While most doctors will tell you 'no pain no gain', this is not the correct approach. If you Massage and Stretch the pain away, you've essentially continued to tear the tendon further until there is no more pressure applied, which will temporarily give you relief until you rest again and your body starts healing.
Which is why all people suffering from Plantar Fasciitis hate those first few steps in the morning. They are painful because your body is trying to heal and those first few steps are tearing and undoing the healing from overnight.
The internet unfortunately is filled with so much mis-information, that when that inaccurate information becomes repeated enough it turns into law. With an ailment as prevalent as Plantar Fasciitis unfortunately this is the case.
I'm not saying that ALL orthotics are bad, some people do benefit from it. There are people with flat feet, or even with one leg slightly longer than the other that will absolutely benefit fromorthotics, but most people would benefit a lot more from a change in footwear. Women not wearing high heels, or shoes without proper support like flip-flop sandals will often suffer from Plantar Fasciitis at one time or another, but that doesn't mean it has to become chronic suffering. Othotics should be secondary to trying to find out what's causing the problem to persist.
Just last weekend, I enjoyed a long bike ride and was wearing sandals. The next morning I realized that I was suffering from a touch of Plantar Fasciitis. Changing up my footwear from my sandals without support to a lace up shoe that had a lot better support caused my mild case of Plantar Fasciitis to go away in 2-3 days as well as moderate use of Cold to help reduce the inflammation.
I wish you the best in your recovery with your Plantar Fasciitis, and we are here to help you through the healing process.
