Encore Rehabilitation- Columbiana Physical Therapist Suzanne Jarvis shares the best thing about being a PT is helping others. “I enjoy getting to know people and helping them meet their goals. The quality of one’s life is important, so each plan of care is developed around the individual’s goals. It is rewarding for the patient as well as the therapist to see people regain the ability to do the activities they want and need to do. Whether it is recovering from surgery, regaining strength and independence after an illness, or returning to a sport or hobby, physical therapy can play a key role.” 

Suzanne received her physical therapy degree from the University of South Alabama. She has been practicing for 25 years with ten of those years with Encore Rehabilitation. Suzanne recently received her Certification in Dry Needling.

Happy National Physical Therapy Month, Suzanne! Thank you for helping others get back to doing the activities they love!

Tyson Crisman PT Pike Road Oct 2017 Revised 2

Tyson Crisman, Physical Therapist and Clinical Director for Encore Rehabilitation – Montgomery East, says, “The best thing about being a physical therapist is being able to touch people’s lives on a daily basis. We have the opportunity to positively affect people’s lives with our care.

Tyson is no stranger to helping others. He has been a physical therapist for 13 years and has been with Encore Rehabilitation for one year.  Recently Tyson added Certified in Dry Needling to his list of treatments he can offer patients.

Tyson continues, “Whether it is a joint mobility that relieves pain, a smile and wave, or a sympathetic acknowledgement of understanding, we have the chance to positively affect every person’s life or day. I pray every day that God helps me to impact everyone that comes to our clinic in a positive manner.” 

Thank you, Tyson, for always helping our patients! Happy Physical Therapy Month!

And what does Laura have to say about Encore Rehabilitation? “Encore Rehabilitation is a wonderful place to work. They truly care about their employees.
