Cryo Cuff

Anyone familiar with this apparatus? Is it good for meniscus as well as ACL tears? Any info would be appreciated.

I've never used one, but have heard MANY good things about them. I'll find out soon enough, though, because I'll be having ACL surgery in the coming month.

They ice and compress the knee.
 
I used something called a polar care after my shoulder arthroscopy. I'm not sure if that's the same thing. The polar care was a machine that kept my shoulder cool to prevent inflammation; had a fitted cuff with velcro staps that went over the top of the shoulder. It worked very well, although sitting in a chair for hours on end while it worked was not fun.

Thanks for the replies. I know some guys who swear by Cryo Cuff, but they have all had ACL issues. I am trying to learn if anyone has used them successfully to help a meniscus tear.

How's your eye?
Thanks for asking. Unfortunately, it seems to be only marginally better. I still have a bit of blur in my field of vision. They said up to two months to totally clear up and it's almost been one. I have a follow up with the surgeon in two weeks. Hopefully it'll be better by then OR he can let me know what the problem might be.

Thanks again, scotus!

I wish you the best in your recovery.

I have some floaters in my eyes as well, mainly due to too much reading and computer usage, coupled with the fact that I am getting older.

I try not to pay attention to them--it's just a fact of life that I need to get used to.

But for you, since it came as a result of an accident, I hope your eyes get back to 100%.

I hate when the doctors say, "Well you're over 50, so expect some of these over 50 things to happen to you." I'm sure I could play at this level of vision, but I sure hope I don't have to!
