Thank you, Brian, for posting about this setup!! I got the Cryo Cuff by Aircast and it works GREAT! The combo of compression and icing (perfect, super cold temp) is really helping my ankle swelling with new PWB and more stretching. Better than that, it really reduced pain in the achilles after deep stretching and walking. Love everything about it except the price. ($79 + shipping on ebay new) It’s simple to use and set up, and lasts nearly all day without refilling ice. It was the first night without swelling after doing it before bed. I can keep it next to me and use it when needed.
I’d love some advice from boot walkers. I’m walking with one crutch but am able to rock the boot forward to a perpendicular leg position only, making it kind of a limp. My knee wants to hyper-extend back unless I really focus on curling my toes and pushing off with the ball of my foot. This causes pain occasionally in the AT and I’m not sure I’m supposed to do it. Any suggestions/comments? I’ll check with the PT on Monday - but with my boot cranked down to zero, walking is becoming a little more doable.
I’m doing better with the stretching thanks to all the advice - and not worrying since some of you started much later as well! Blessings, Kim
