Specialized Therapy now available at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Silver Cross Hospital

It’s critical for cancer patients and survivors to maintain the things in life that are important to them— energy, mobility, and activity level.  Oftentimes, people who survive cancer suffer from a serious side effect of treatment known as lymphedema, and they may not even be aware of it.  Fortunately, cancer patients can find relief with lymphedema therapy that is now available at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at Silver Cross Hospital (RIC)

RIC at Silver Cross in New Lenox and West Joliet offers Free Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Screenings 

New Lenox, IL (February 16, 2015)— According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome usually start gradually, with frequent tingling or itching numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the thumb, index and middle fingers. These symptoms often first appear in one or both hands during the night, and you may wake up feeling the need to "shake out" the hand or wrist. As symptoms worsen, you might feel tingling during the day and have a decreased grip strength that may make it difficult to form a fist or grasp small objects. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, find out if you are suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome by attending an upcoming lecture discussing the condition or schedule a free screening offered by Silver Cross Hospital.
