Physical Therapy instead of surgery

Demetria Patterson Photo Columbiana

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!

Dry Needing: What is it? How does it work?

Jonathan Gettys:  Athlete of the Month and MLB Bound!

Encore-Uhler Sports Medicine Symposium 2018-Orange Beach, Alabama

From guest contributor, Bo Shirey, Athletic Trainer with Encore Rehabilitation-Cullman

I love to swim and I was looking to do a swim-a-thon as a fundraiser.  I decided to do one for MS (Multiple Sclerosis) because my mother, Judy Shirey, was diagnosed over 20 years ago.  I contacted her MS doctor, Chris Laganke, MD, and I was referred to the local National MS Society chapter in Alabama.

For the MS Swim event, all the proceeds raised would be donated to the local Alabama chapter to help raise awareness and find a cure for MS.

The Cullman Wellness and Aquatic Center gave me permission to use their facilities to host our event.  The event took place the entire month of January.  We had just over 20 swimmers to participate.  Our goal was to swim over 500 miles (18,000 laps) in the month of January.    We reached our goal just few days late but we had a couple of snow days and several of our swimmers had the flu.  We raised almost $4,000 for MS.

The next MS Swim event is scheduled for September 2019. We welcome others to participate and donate.

WALK MS: Cullman 2018, April 14, 2018 at Heritage Park-Cullman, Alabama

cd888460-c2e7-4d01-a6c4-b72284cde62d

Come join Team Encore Rehab! Register or donate today!

WALK MS-Cullman 2018 will take place Saturday, April 14, 2018 at Heritage Park (1705 Lee Ave SW, Cullman, AL 36055). Registration at 10 am. Walk starts at 11 am.

Why we walk~~
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. MS is different for everyone, and that makes it all the more challenging to solve. The first Walk MS event was in 1988, and since then more than $1 billion has been raised for research and programs to improve the lives of people living with MS. Today, there are treatments where there weren’t any before, and the dream of ending MS is becoming a reality. But there is still so much to do.

That’s why we’re walking. We’ve set an ambitious goal because we know with support from people like you, we will have a great chance at reaching it. The money raised will drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and guarantee a supportive community for those who need it most. This cause is important to us, so we hope you can do your part to help end MS forever.

Chinese Medical Professionals visit Encore Rehabilitation Facilities-Part 2

Encore Rehabilitation hosts tour group from China (2)

Chinese Medical Professionals tour Encore Rehabilitation-Hartselle, March 21, 2018.**

Encore Rehabilitation facilities were recently visited by medical professionals from China. China’s population is increasing and living longer which is creating a need for expanding rehabilitative care. “Western Medicine practices” such as Physical Therapy are in more of a demand. The group was touring Encore Rehabilitation clinics to learn more about the Physical Therapy profession.

One of the stops on their tour was Encore Rehabilitation-Hartselle, Alabama. The Hartselle clinic is now operating in their new clinic on Highway 31 and Mynatt Street. Services in Hartselle include Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, and Industrial Rehab, including FCEs (Functional Capacity Evaluations). Hartselle also offers a Pediatric Rehab program called Kids in Motion.  This program specializes in the management of Autism Spectrum Disorders and offers services to assist children with behavior development, neurological conditions, and physical conditions.

Visitors enjoyed the tour and also an explanation of Dry Needling. Dry Needling is a skilled intervention that uses thin monofilament needles to penetrate the muscle and help decrease pain and spasms. Dry Needling is especially helpful in pain management. While the Chinese visitors are very familiar with acupressure, dry needling was a physical therapy procedure that was less common to them.

Read more about their visit to Encore Rehabilitation-Hartselle, here as reported by Cliff Knight of the Hartselle Enquirer. **Article and photo used by permission of the Hartselle Enquirer.
