Heather Calentine of the Therapy Desk is the May Star Employee! Heather went above and beyond while her co-worker was gone on maternity leave. She took time to learn how to take care of reports, train new hires, attend meetings and manage the therapy desk during her co-workers absence. She made sure the desk ran smooth and that everyone was happy and comfortable.
Congratulations to Heather! We are happy that she is a part of the TSOS team!
Congratulations to TSOS’s Dr. Phillip Stiver for receiving the 2019 Physician of the Year Award from St. Vincent. His dedication and care for his patients, appreciation for his employees and support to other physicians are just some of the reasons he is deserving of this award.
Picture this – you wake up in the middle of the night to a painful numbness or tingling in your hand. At first you think your hand is just asleep but this sensation doesn’t go away. If this is something you have experienced, you might be dealing with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that affects the nerve of your wrist. This can cause pain, numbness, and tingling in your hand. This condition affects the thumb, pointer, middle, and part of the ring finger.
The cause of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is inflammation of the nerve at the wrist. The inflammation causes swelling of the nerve in a confined space which results in increased pressure on the nerve. This pressure causes the nerve dysfunction. Nerve dysfunction leads to the numbness and tingling sensation that people experience. There is no single cause that leads to Carpal Tunnel. However, one of the most common causes is repetitive movement.
