No one wants to have to use cold therapy.
But if you’re having joint surgery, Breg’s Polar Care® Kodiak® cold therapy can make all the difference toward a more comfortable recovery. In 2015, Luis’ surgeon prescribed cold therapy after shoulder surgery to help manage his pain. “It significantly reduced the need for pain medication after the first night,” Luis said. Two years later, Luis had hip surgery to repair a torn labrum. “I made sure I used cold therapy again,” he said. “This time, I didn’t need the pain medication at all after two days.”*
Luis recovered from hip surgery during Hurricane Irma. “The conditions were pretty terrible, but the machine was really simple to use,” he said. When he lost power, Luis packed up and left home to stay with family to ensure he had a power source for his machine. “At the time, I was thankful it was so portable. I found out later that Polar Care Kodiak has a battery option,” he said with a smile.
“Breg Polar Care saved me. After my surgery, I was not in pain, I wasn’t irritable – it kept my complaining to a minimum.”
