Cold Therapy Lawsuit

Cold therapy (also known as ‘cryotherapy’ or ice therapy) devices are used to minimize swelling resulting from surgery by cooling an inflamed or swollen area of the body. After filling the device with ice water, the cooling pad is placed on the affected body part. A circulating pump inside the cold therapy device continually circulates ice water to the cooling pad through connecting tubes. This helps keep the pad ice-cold for extended periods of time. Unfortunately, the use of cold therapy devices has been linked to an increased risk of serious skin and nerve damage.
