Cold Weather Injury and Illness Tips

It's been a chilly winter so far! Stay safe and healthy this season with the tips below.


Frostbite occurs when the heat supply to a part of the body is insufficient to counteract the heat loss and results in actual freezing. The frozen area is normally small and most commonly occurs on the nose, ears, cheeks and fingers. The signs and symptoms for frostbite can include frostnip (initially red, then white and painless with soft skin).

Superficial frostbite shows white and waxy skin with firm, soft tissue while deep frostbite shows signs of blotchy skin with a white to purplish tinge, numbness and solid skin over entire depth. Treatment for first and second degree frostbite includes warming the tissue with warm water or a warm hand over the involved area. This area will be extremely sensitive to further cold exposure and should be protected accordingly. The treatment for third degree frostbite is to transport the person to a medical facility immediately. There is often permanent damage with this type of injury.


Tips to avoid cold injury:

1. Cover all exposed surfaces in a cold environment.
2. Avoid contact with colder objects or cold wind.


Good News from Our Staff


We love sharing good news about charitable contributions, especially when they come from our own staff members!


Tri-Rehab staff member Janel recently donated her hair to the  Children with Hair Loss organization. 


Here's her heartwarming story!

"I often go back and forth with my hairstyle- alternating between growing it out and cutting it short. This

time I decided to do something a little different and donate to Children with Hair Loss.  



So I held out a few extra months before getting it cut in late December and ended up donating 10 and 1/2 inches to this organization. Although I don't have any personal connection to this non-profit group or know of any children affected by medical conditions causing hair loss, I still felt it was important to help a local organization in such a simple way.  


This organization differs from others in that it does not charge the recipient a penny for the wig. The hair I donated will be combined with several others to make a complete hair piece for a child with medically related hair loss."

What a wonderful contribution. Thanks, Janel!
