October is National Physical Therapy Month!

In October, we celebrate National Physical Therapy Month. Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Assistants can help improve and restore motion to your life.  This recognition is an opportunity to highlight the fact that we are your trusted experts in helping you to improve your quality of life by keeping healthy, fit, and active, and avoiding surgery and long-term use of prescription medications, in many cases.

When it comes to health care, one size does not fit all. A Physical Therapist’s extensive education, clinical expertise, and “hands on” approach brings you a unique, individualized approach. When you are in the hands of a Physical Therapist, you have a plan of care that is safe, appropriate and addresses your individual needs and pre-existing conditions.

The month of October is also National Breast Cancer Awareness month. It is important to promote breast cancer awareness, share information on the disease, and provide greater access to services.  Although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. It is important to stress that women need to be empowered and dedicated to take charge of their own breast health!

Our specialized cancer rehabilitation program serves all individuals in need, whether they are at the beginning or completion of treatment, or experiencing late affects from treatment completed long ago. Whether living with cancer as a chronic disease or in remission, we can help individuals 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.  The cancer rehabilitation program is available at numerous STARS locations throughout the Treasure Valley, where we can quickly and effectively implement an exceptional cancer care plan for patients in the communities we serve.

Stop in today to one of our Saint Alphonsus Rehabilitation Services (STARS) clinics located in both the Downtown Boise YMCA and West Boise YMCA to find out more about these services or visit our website at www.starspt.org.
