Hi KoCrm.

Yes you can use any form of cold therapy, but make sure to follow the same instructions:

1. You should never use any cold pack directly on the skin if it has been stored in a freezer or is below the freezing temperature of water.  Serious injury can result if you use freezer temperature cold packs of ANY type directly on your skin.

2. If cold therapy becomes uncomfortable, remove the wrap for a few minutes, then re-apply.

3. Rest during your treatment, if possible, to maximize RCCE™ - Rest, Cold Compression, and Elevation for optimal treatment. After your treatment is over (ideally 15-20 minutes, 10 minutes in areas with limited fat or muscle), remove the wrap.

Wish you all the best!

Kind regards,

I know KoCrm it can be confusing, especially with the amount of information out there. The main thing to remember is that the meniscus is living tissue, and therefore must get some blood flow. It is true however, that the meniscus gets very little blood flow. This is why knee injuries tend to take the longest to heal. Our BFST simply speeds up this process.  It promotes more blood blow to the area which means more nutrients and more oxygen to help it heal at an accelerated rate.

Good luck with your PT. Remember to ice it after each session.

Kind regards,
Amber
