cryro cuffs

Don't cryro cuffs rock! I wish they made them for every part of the bodies joints. With all the surgeries I've had, a total of 20 mostly in the last 10 years, I would have loved it. And with all you've been through I'm sure you would have to.

Re: cryro cuffs

I have been through 15 major surgeries and countless procceedures since a young child. I didn't even know they existed until after one of the knee surgeries, I want to think it was the PCL release but could of been the ACL reconstruct, my therapist gave me one. Mine lasted years until recently when I discovered a leak in my hose.

They do make them for various parts of the body such as knee, ankle, shoulder, calf, hand and back. I need one in every available type but foot LOL!! I just noticed you can buy them now so I may consider getting one for my back and my knee or perhaps ask my PM to prescribe me one. I have pretty lax insurance so I think that's what I'll do when I visit my PM tomorrow!

Re: cryro cuffs

They really control pain for me. I am sure I would have needed much more pain meds without it.

Gymnastics is fun at 18 but not at 40.

Re: cryro cuffs

Yep and they're great at numbing the joints so when you do the excercises the pain control is much better.
