Cold therapy nerve damage

Something that I had never considered, despite having had physical therapists use it for my dad, is the potential for damage that cold therapy can cause. Being a freelance writer I am all too aware of the risk of injuries from things such as repetitive the strain injury that can be caused by all day typing, or the more serious danger of carpel tunnel syndrome, however, I never realized that this common treatment of certain muscle or joint injuries could cause serious injury including nerve damage, chronic pain, or frostbite.

If you have been treated with cold therapy and believe you suffered injury from improper treatment, then you should check the website of Texas Injury Lawyer's O’Hanlon, McCollum & Demerath. They are experienced cold therapy nerve damage lawyers dealing in product liability claims and cryotherapy lawsuits, and they want to help you with a free consultation. You can find out more at their information page and frequently asked questions about the danger of cold therapy, also known as cryotherapy.

Damage from improper use of cold therapy can be a very serious matter. Due to the numbing nature of cold therapy on treated areas, it can cause serious damage without the patient even realizing that the damage is occurring until it is too late.
