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!

They listen to how I feel

Heather Bland Montgomery East Revised

Recovery from surgery can be challenging. Just ask Heather Bland. She was recently recovering from rotator cuff and bicep tendon repair surgery. A friend recommended she go to Encore Rehabilitation-Montgomery East for her physical therapy.

Heather tells about her rehabilitation at Encore: “Tyson and Lauren have helped me work on rehabbing my shoulder after surgery. My surgeon was impressed at how well I was able to move my shoulder just weeks later.”

“Tyson and Lauren were also great at explaining why we do what we do each visit along with what to expect afterwards.”

Thank you, Heather, for sharing your experience at Encore Rehabilitation!

Rachel Jones PT

Rachael Jones is passionate about her patients! “The best thing about being a Physical Therapist is my patients! As a Physical Therapist, I spend one-on-one time with each patient over a period of weeks and often months. I not only educate, facilitate, and assist in their healing, but I also get to know patients on a personal level. I meet their families and hear their struggles. I am honored to watch their success. I am privileged to experience the joy when they walk again, return to sports, return to work, gain their independence and when they are finally pain-free. I am thankful for my role as physical therapist and consider it a great honor.”

A native of Guin, Alabama, Rachael is the Regional Director of the Encore Rehabilitation Clinics in Fayette, Vernon, Hamilton, and Winfield. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science from The University of Mississippi and her Doctorate of Physical Therapy from The University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.
