I want to play high school sports-Ana Medina

Ana Medina Photo Clanton Revised

Ana Medina has a goal-to play high sports. Her recent knee surgeries, first the right knee and then the left, became a road block on her path but through hard work, commitment, and dedication with her physical therapy, Ana is pushing forward again with her goal!

Her therapist, Taylor Phillips, PT, DPT, shares, “Ana has been in physical therapy for several months after having surgeries on both knees. She is finally out of her knee brace and is hoping to try out for volleyball and softball. Due to her knee problems, she’s never been able to play sports, so she’s very excited about working towards sports activities in therapy!”

From all of us at Encore Rehabilitation, we wish you the best in your tryouts, Ana! Thank you for choosing Encore Rehabilitation-Clanton for your physical therapy!
