<p>I'm 4 days post ACL reconstruction surgery. I used a Continuous Cold Therapy System (Ossur Cold Rush) for the first 3 days...including at night. Then I had my first post-surgery PT appointment.&#160;&#160;There, the therapist said that it is important for the muscles to contract back and forth, through the ice-on and ice-off pattern.&#160;</p>
<p>I had read through various studies that I found online, that continuous cold therapy, where the temperature is "very cold water" versus ice, is better than a 15 minute/hour ice pack.&#160; &#160;This is because the nerve endings are not damaged as they are through ice application.</p>
<p>Anyway, my PT is telling me to stop using my new $150 system, and to go to doing the ice pack regimen.&#160; &#160;Anyone have any experience or input about this??&#160; Thank you!</p>
