Lecture on Cryotherapy

The Distinguished Lecture Series in
  Sports Medicine at Hope College will feature an analysis of
  "cryotherapy"--the use of cold in treating athletic
  injuries--on Wednesday, Sept. 22, at 7 p.m. in the Maas
  Center.
          The public is invited.  Admission is free.
          Dr. Ken Knight of Brigham Young University will
  present the address, "Cryotherapy:  A new look at an old
  modality."  Knight will clarify the use of cryotherapy
  during both immediate care and rehabilitation of sports
  injury.  He will review research related to cryotherapy, and
  will also make recommendations concerning its use.
          Knight is widely regarded as the country's
  foremost authority on cryotherapy and has been conducting
  research on the topic for more than 20 years, according to
  series coordinator Dr. R. Richard Ray Jr., who is an
  athletic trainer and associate professor of kinesiology at
  Hope.
          The Distinguished Lecture Series in Sports
  Medicine is designed for health care professionals with an
  interest in physically active patients, and is intended for
  students, educators and clinicians alike.  It is co-
  sponsored by Holland Community Hospital, GNA Rehabilitation
  Professionals and the college.
