Dr. Oz is being sued…

droz

It appears that the all-in-powerful Oz is being sued after a New Jersey man suffered third degree burns after following a recommendation he saw on the show.   The man claims to have slept with “heated rice-filled socks” which were recommended by Oz in a show filmed in 2012.   Unfortunately, the man is diabetic and suffers from neuropathy and could not feel his feet burning.   Ouch.  

As Physical Therapist’s, we must always educate our consumers on the safe use of modalities, and to always consult a medical professional before trying something they heard on this (or any other) show…

  1. Ah, thanks for the news Joe. I had a patient today tell me she learned 3 new things Dr. Oz said to help improve help…I can’t remember them as I tuned out 🙂

    I’m sure they have it covered to not get sued but yes, you make a good point to tell your patients to consult with a professional prior to this generic information.

    Cool new look to the site man, keep up good work. Glad to see you have another great therapist helping you out.

    Best,
    Harrison
