Strength Training and Recovery’s (S.T.A.R) philosophy is based on innovative research in activity-based training and integrates various forms of therapy and adaptive sports training to help those with disabilities get stronger and live a more active and independent life.
S.T.A.R prides itself in helping clients with:
– Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI)
– Mild Traumatic Brain Injuries (mTBI)
S.T.A.R. has the privilege of working with clients across multiple age groups from pediatric to geriatric. Our staff strives to provide high quality care to any individual regardless of their age. In 2020 the amount of care S.T.A.R. provided in these special age groups is as follows:
Ages 1-10: 1 Client Ages 11-18: 3 Clients Ages 65-75: 26 Clients Ages 75+: 10 Clients
Our focus goes beyond traditional therapy in the institutional medical setting that can only offer limited services.
Our intense, evidence-based therapy program is offered in a 225,000 square foot, fully accessible, community-integrated facility.
While empowering our clients in our community-integrated facility, we are also breaking society’s stereotypes and barriers of perceived disabilities.
This program reconnects the client with their community and everyday life, integrating them back into an active lifestyle within the community. The purpose is to provide reality-based therapy and functional training to help the clients improve their daily activities in the real world.
Although, we work with many disabled athletes from around Michigan, our program is not limited to them. Our diverse team combines their areas of expertise to develop individual recovery programs to meet each client’s unique goals at a level of intensity set for each client’s limits. Clients are encouraged to participate 3-5 days per week to achieve maximum results. The focus is on outcomes that are achievable and stressing individual capabilities for clients to emerge with a better understanding of their own injury, as well as their recovery. Our aggressive rehabilitation program challenges our clients to reactivate every ounce of ability to achieve healthier, stronger bodies.
