“I would recommend Encore to anybody!”


Adele Wallace of Calera was having back pain, so much so that her back “locked up”!

Her doctor referred her to Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana and after one month, this is what Adele has to say:

“Currently I have no more back pain and I have resumed all of my regular activities. I have been to Encore before and had good results. I would recommend Encore to anybody!”

Thank you, Adele, for choosing Encore Rehabilitation! We LOVE to see you move!

Making a Difference in the World – Amanda Royal, LPTA

Amanda Royal PTA Foley 2.JPG

Amanda Royal loves being a Physical Therapist Assistant! Her favorite part of her work is helping people return to an active lifestyle. Amanda says, “The reward is when your patients cry and hug you and tell you ‘thank you for helping me walk again!’ This job is rewarding in so many ways, it’s almost hard to describe, but knowing I’m making a difference in this world through physical therapy is all I ever wanted.”

Making a difference is something Amanda also does away from her daily career. Amanda serves as a US Navy Reservist. She recently completed A School Training as a Hospital Corpsman at Fort Sam Houston, Texas, where she was on the Dean’s List.

Encore Rehabilitation-Foley is very proud of Amanda for serving the Foley community and in the US Navy Reserve!
