Cryocuff for Ankle Injuries


John Stephenson recommends the Ankle Cryo/Cuff after Anterior Talofibular Ligament Injury (ATFL). He says that as part of RICE in rehabilitation after ATFL the Cryo/Cuff is a much gentler and inclusive way of cooling the injured ankle than a bag of frozen peas.

John, a physiotherapist, said that the effective area of cooling and compression should be all around the ankle and not just over the injured ligament itself. John said "There is often both bruising and swelling around the whole of the ankle and this is what we want treated in the first 72 hours of an injury. We tend to combine the Cryo/Cuff with elevation which gives the patient the "Full Monty" of Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation".

John told us that they have the range of Cryo/Cuff products in clinic ready to go for our runners at MOTI the shop with the very best run, fitness & triathlon brands in Cardiff and Bristol in the UK.
