Saint Alphonsus Rehabilitation Services (STARS) recognizes that June is National Men’s Health Month, a time to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. This recognition is to encourage and support men to take charge of their health, get screened for common health conditions, and break the silence about the impacts men’s health problems have on our families and communities. Our expert staff at STARS have specialized training to treat conditions such as osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, urinary and bowel incontinence, pelvic pain, prostatitis, and prostate cancer. Treatment programs can be designed to restore optimum health and function as quickly and safely as possible. For more information on how we can help with these conditions, please visit our website at starspt.org.
The first week in June is also National Headache Awareness Week. We treat many patients who suffer from headaches. Tension headaches are the most common kind of headache, and they typically result from tension in the muscles that support your head and neck. These headaches can occur for a variety of reasons, most commonly from holding your head in the same position for a long period of time, such as when you are sitting at a computer. If you experience two to three tension headaches a week, the condition may be chronic and require physical therapy intervention to treat the tight muscles.
June 3rd is National Cancer Survivors Day. National Cancer Survivors Day® is a CELEBRATION for those who have survived, an INSPIRATION for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of SUPPORT for families, and an OUTREACH to the community.
STARS’ specialized cancer rehabilitation program serves all individuals in need, whether they are at the beginning or completion of treatment, or experiencing late effects from treatment completed long ago. We can help individuals living with cancer as a chronic disease or in remission return to the activities they enjoy.
Having access to Saint Alphonsus specialized cancer rehabilitation services allows individuals to regain their health and get their lives back on track. For more information, visit our website at starspt.org.
