Patricia Cargile of Millport, Alabama, had problems with her knees which prevented her from walking well. Even small daily activities like getting up out of a chair or stepping up on a curb were difficult for her. Patricia chose Encore Rehabilitation-Vernon for Physical Therapy to regain strength and mobility in her legs. She is now walking much better and now looks forward to going on walks for exercise.
Congratulations, Patricia, on being selected Patient of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation-Vernon! At Encore Rehab, we LOVE to see you move!
Steve Pounders recently began physical therapy with Encore Rehabilitation-Russellville following shoulder surgery. His doctor recommended Encore and several family members were happy with their treatment at Encore. Steve has been pleased with his recovery.
Steve says, “The staff is very friendly and professional. They really work hard to provide needed therapy in a pleasant manner. I was 4-6 weeks ahead of where the doctor expected me to be on the follow-up visit and feel like Encore has put me in a position to recover completely. Great job!”
Thank you, Steve, for choosing Encore Rehabilitation-Russellville to be your rehab provider!
Fred Markham shares his rehab story, “My back was bothering me so my doctor recommended that I try Physical Therapy. I have gotten stronger and can do more of the things I want to do during the day. I would recommend that others try physical therapy. I am now able to do more things around my house by myself without pain like mowing my yard, mopping floors, and making my bed.”
Congratulations to Fred Markham, Patient of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation-Vernon! We are delighted that Fred is enjoying moving again without pain! Thank you, Fred, for choosing Encore Rehabilitation-Vernon to be your rehab provider!
Demetria Patterson could not bend her knee. She visited her doctor who recommended Physical Therapy to see if she could avoid surgery.
Demetria says, “My doctor told me I had some wear in my knee that therapy would be best for me, that if it was not enough, there was nothing else to be done but surgery. Since being at Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana, Mrs. Suzanne Jarvis has really helped me reach my goal of bending my knee pain free. She has been a great therapist and I feel like I have benefited totally from where I was in the beginning. I went from not being able to bend at all in my left knee to bending 120-125 degrees.
“I choose Encore because I was recommended by my doctor because Encore is close to my home. I thank him for the recommendation and I thank Mrs. Jarvis for working with me. She has a great way of working with people and doesn’t push you to do anything that will cause you any type of further injury. Thank you to Brian as well for always helping out with suggestions. Thank you again, Mrs. Jarvis, for taking the time to help me heal in such a short time.“
Thank you, Demetria, for choosing Encore! We are glad you were able to use Physical Therapy and avoid surgery. Great job!
A car accident left Mary Francis Wilson with injuries in her neck, shoulder and low back. She chose Encore Rehabilitation-Hayden as her rehab provider.
After returning to better health and completing her rehab, Ms. Wilson wrote Encore a note regarding her therapist, Emily LaRue, DPT.
Ms. Wilson says, “I should like to take this opportunity to commend Emily LaRue, who is in charge of your operation at Encore Hayden. Emily is first and foremost a true professional, not only is she extremely competent in the physical aspects of her profession, she is also very gifted with an understanding of the mental and emotional make-up of her patients. Emily is a tireless worker and is gifted with unequaled energy and the ability to focus on a myriad of functions simultaneously.

Bobbye Carraway was referred to Encore Rehabilitation-Gulfport Downtown to increase her core strength and mobility and to also decrease her arm pain and risk of falling.
Bobbye shares, “At the beginning of treatment, I required 1-on-1 assistance for each exercise. I was unable to walk around my block and had no energy or stamina.”
After several weeks of rehab she says, “My left arm range of motion has increased 30 degrees in 6 directions. I came with a pain level of 7 and it was hard to sleep more than 5-6 hours. Now I have a pain level of 1-1.5 and I sleep 7-9 hours nightly. I would recommend Encore Rehabilitation to my family and friends.”
Thank you, Bobbye, for choosing Encore to be your rehab provider! We LOVE to see you move!
