      it blissfully numbs everything out while reducing swelling and inflammation....lots of people on the site seems to have had great experiences with Cryo-cuffs. i didn't use one (military wouldn't pay for it...) 1kg bags of frozen peas/corn worked great for me - i tried actual ice initially but ended up getting soaked when it melted...

      just don't fall asleep with it on (frostbite) and wrap it in a handtowel so the extended exposure to cold doesn't damage the skin...

      i think everyone will agree - ice will become your best friend...

      I used ice around the clock the first two days. Afterwards, I'd only use ice if I was in pain and only for like 15 minutes at a time. I also took ibuprofen during the day, pain meds at night.

      Once the inflammation was done, I stopped ice altogether as I found it more painful.

      Go figure.

      Once I began physical therapy, there was absolutely no ice - only moist heat. Which promotes healthy bloodflow. Feels great too.
