In 2018 Janne had bilateral osteotomies to correct the alignment of his femur and tibia. After the surgery on his left leg in February he received no cryotherapy. After the operation to his right leg in October Janne received localized cryotherapy regularly from postoperative day four onwards.
This is what Janne says about his cryotherapy results:
“After the cryotherapy session the swelling went down fast and the mobility of my right knee returned much faster than in the left knee that received no cryotherapy. Encouraged by the amazing results I went for cryotherapy nearly daily during my recovery.
Cryotherapy clearly accelerated my post-operative healing and allowed me to stop taking pain medication significantly sooner than with the knee that received no cryotherapy. I feel that cryotherapy cut weeks off my recovery time. This was a major advantage to an active, and sometimes impatient, person like me.
I can warmly recommend cryotherapy to speed up post-operative recovery. The effect is immediate, the treatment is easy, and it takes only a few minutes at a time.”
