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!
Mac Burt is a Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant (LPTA) at Encore Rehabilitation-Foley, Alabama. Mac says, “The best thing about being a LPTA is being able to help people regain their freedom and meet their goals. When I see a person do something that they were not able to do before therapy, it reminds me of why I do what I do.”
Mac earned his LPTA degree from Pensacola State College and has been with Encore Rehabilitation for two years.
Thank you, Mac, for all you do for your patients and for Encore Rehabilitation!
Congratulations to Norm Moore, Patient of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation – Foley!
Norm has been receiving physical therapy at Encore Rehabilitation in Foley for three weeks as he recovers from Hip Replacement Surgery. He selected Encore because his doctors and friends recommended the Foley Clinic.
Norm says, “Encore has friendly, knowledgeable and dedicated staff. Do the work and you get excellent results!”
Thank you, Norm, for your kind words! We wish you the best as you continue to receive physical therapy.
Her name is Patricia but everyone knows her as PK. PK started physical therapy at Encore Rehabilitation – Foley after having hip replacement surgery. She needed rehabilitation to regain her strength and increase her ability to walk. PK came to Encore because her doctor recommended treatment at the Foley clinic and she is glad she came. After three weeks of rehabilitation, PK exclaims, “The staff are great!”
Thank you PK for being a terrific patient! Happy National Physical Therapy Month!
We would like to recognize our Encore Rehabilitation of Foley Patient of the Month, Janice Daniel. Janice is from Silverhill and has been receiving physical therapy for five weeks. She came to Encore to regain use of her shoulder following a torn rotator cuff repair. Her progress is going very well. In 2010, Encore Rehabilitation helped Janice after her knee surgery. After her knee rehab, Janice was able to return to gardening and doing all the things she enjoys. Janice says, “Like with my knee, I want to be the best I can be. Encore is enabling me to fulfill my goal!” Keep up the good work, Janice!
At Encore Rehabilitation, we LOVE to see you move!!
