Cold Therapy

It can certainly be a scary situation to have gone through surgery and still find yourself facing uncertain recovery. I have heard about a form of therapy used to help in the reduction of pain and swelling in the recovery of joint surgery such as knee, shoulder, elbow etc. These can be difficult areas to heal and Cryotherapy has been prescribed to by doctors to assist in the healing process. This is unfortunately also developed issues with the care not being administered properly causing patients to receive too cold a therapy or too much exposure. The results of this is sometimes nerve damage, chronic pain or even frost bite. It can be so frustrating thinking you are doing the right thing to help your recovery and healing only to find out you were wrongly informed and have caused more damage. If you think you or someone you love might have been a victim of this issue you should take the time to contact the team of professionals at O’Hanlon, McCollom & Demerath – Personal Injury Lawyers – 808 West Avenue, Austin, TX. 78701 – 512-494-9949 they are working on a cold therapy lawsuit and can assist you in finding the answers you need to help work through your issues.

Winter go away

We went for the last ski day of the year today, the annual slush bowl and hula day. Normally it's nice and hot and we can go skiing in a tshirt or light sweater. This year was a big change, it actually was the coldest day we went skiing this year and we could only get a few runs in before we had to break to warm up. It's pretty surprising and a shame that this is the last day, there sure is lots of snow left and they could have kept it open for a while longer. It was even snowing today when we were on the hill, just didn't seem like there was the usual closure to the season for us.

Medical Scrubs

I have a friend that is starting Nursing in a few weeks and while she is very excited to start her career she is frustrated with standard medical scrubs because she has a difficult body shape that doesn't work well with standard scrub sets. I recently found this great webite from Blue Sky Scrubs. They have the ability to customize the nursing scrub uniforms to exactly the shape and size that she needed.
I never realized how many options and choices there really were for medical scrubs until I spent some time helping her in her search for the perfect uniforms. There literally is a scrub set for every occassion if you look for it. It would be quite fun and stylish to work in the hospital profession. It has been a long time since I've had a hospital visit but I can remember all the professionals being in basically the same uniform, same color, quite boring. I would have to say that isn't the case anymore with all the awesome scrubs sets choices you would have to make you can easily buy scrubs
