Mac Burt PTA Foley

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!

 

Helping people- Chantry Hagood, LPTA

Chantry Hagood PTA

I became a Physical Therapist Assistant for one reason and that was to help people. When I was 15 years old, my mother and I were in a bad motor vehicle accident which broke her neck and crushed her right ankle. After seeing what she went through and the importance of physical therapy in her recovery, I knew I wanted to help others like my mother.”

Chantry received his Physical Therapist Assistant degree from Wallace State Community College and has been a clinician for six years. He has worked for Encore Rehabilitation for one year, treating patients at the Encore Rehabilitation offices in Haleyville and Russellville. Chantry is also a Certified Personal Trainer.

Chantry continues, “I love seeing people thrive and meet new people. I have developed some good friendships that stand to this day. I was a sports fanatic and so I love to see athletes get back to what they love to do and have success. I believe all of us therapists desire to make a difference.” 

Thank you, Chantry for all you do! 

 

Helping others – Suzanne Jarvis, PT, Celebrating National Physical Therapy Month

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. Sometimes it is with our clinical skills, sometimes it is through our caring attitudes and other times it is with our caring actions.” 

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!
