Archive for the ‘Cold Therapy Lawsuit’ Category
One of the most common injuries among athletes is on the anterior cruciate ligament or ACL. This is a band of tough, fibrous tissue that stabilizes the knee. While this is common, you should call a doctor if you are already experiencing severe pain on the knee or leg and swelling of the entire leg. To reduce pain and swelling, you can use ice on the affected area. Most doctors prescribe cryotherapy and the use of cold therapy devices. While these devices can reduce pain, they can also cause serious injuries when used improperly. A defective machine can also cause permanent nerve damage and in this case, a patient can get assistance through a cold therapy lawsuit due to the use of the device.
