May is National Arthritis Awareness Month.  It aims to raise awareness and reduce the impact of arthritis, which strikes one in every five adults and 300,000 children according to the Arthritis Foundation.  It is the leading cause of disability in the US.  At Saint Alphonsus Rehabilitation Services (STARS), our caring therapists can help you manage your arthritis or related diagnosis including Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Lupus.

Our therapists will develop an individualized treatment plan that focuses on restoring mobility, function, and strength, as well as decreasing pain, swelling, and stiffness. They will also explain how you can modify certain daily activities so that they are less stressful on your joints. Our goal is your goal – to decrease your pain and help improve your quality of life.  Please visit our Arthritis Management page for more information on arthritis.
