April is here and that means it’s National Occupational Therapy Month.

STARS Physical Therapy recognizes that April is “our” month and wants you to make it your month too. Occupational therapy does so much for our community. When there’s injuries to our everyday life activities (occupations), occupational therapy promotes recovery and healing. Our profession gets you back on your feet.

But “Why” Occupational Therapy when Injured?

If you have an injury and cannot perform certain daily activities such as brushing your teeth, feeding yourself, walking up and down stairs, or driving. Occupational therapy can help you regain these skills and achieve independence.

 At Saint Alphonsus Rehabilitation Services (STARS) our team of highly trained occupational therapists will evaluate your injury or condition, establish appropriate functional goals and guide you through a customized treatment plan to achieve those goals.

Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain maximum independence! STARS offers the most comprehensive occupational therapy services and treatments in Southwest Idaho including: certified hand therapy and upper extremity specialists, orthopedic rehabilitation, arthritis management, neurological and cognitive rehabilitation, return to work services, and driving evaluations.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our occupational therapists and all of the wonderful work that they do for our patients!

No matter what your ailment may be, a trip to one of our many Saint Alphonsus Rehabilitation Service’s centers will help set you on the path to healing.
