Encore Rehabilitation Services: An Overview of Encore Rehabilitation Benefits

Encore Rehabilitation is a leading provider of physical therapy and rehabilitation services, featuring dozens of locations in Mississippi and Alabama. The facility employs numerous professionals trained in medicine and physical therapy, providing the utmost standard of care for its patients. If you are in the process of recovering from an injury, there are plenty of advantages to seeking treatment through one of Encore’s locations. This guide will weigh the pros and cons of this treatment facility to help you make an informed decision about your medical care and recovery.

Advantage #1: Specialized Care

The first major advantage to seeking care through Encore Rehabilitation is that they have a variety of professionals with expertise in specific fields. From pain management and sports medicine to women’s health and work rehabilitation, you will find a medical professional who has plenty of experience with your specific reason for seeking treatment. Specificity is crucial to a good recovery since specialized therapists have up-to-date training in all the latest technologies and methods within their specialty. You can rest assured that you will receive the highest quality of care and attention from staff members who take pride in working with the problems you have and helping you reach your recovery goals. Patients have the option to work with professionals in one or more specialties, making Encore Rehabilitation a one-stop shop for physical wellness.

Advantage #2: Varied Services

In addition to basic physical therapy services, Encore also offers a variety of services to help the community. Speech-language pathology, or speech therapy, is provided at local schools so students don’t have to travel to receive services. This type of convenient care is crucial to making rehabilitation accessible to everyone. Even if you can’t go to an Encore Rehabilitation services center, there are still plenty of options available to you. Whether you decide to arrange for a therapist to visit you at your home, workplace, or school, or you choose to seek care in a hospital, Encore works with its patients to ensure that they receive timely and reliable care.

Advantage #3: WorkZone Industrial Rehab

One of the things that truly sets Encore apart from other facilities is its focus on workplace rehabilitation. The WorkZone Industrial Rehab program works with companies to create a safe and productive environment in which employees can thrive. Since so many of the injuries treated by their professionals are job related, the facility recognizes the benefit of preventing problems before they happen. You can even request that Encore visit your business to analyze workplace safety regulations and help improve working conditions for everyone. In addition to working with employers to implement policies that prevent injury, Encore also works with you and other employees to encourage healthy lifestyle choices that can stave off the effects of illness and injury. Preventative care is essential to taking care of your body and saving yourself pain and effort in the long run.

Advantage #4: Sports Medicine Expertise

Many injuries are the result of athletic activities and can be very different from those caused by routine ailments and movement. Encore Rehabilitation recognizes that sports injuries require expert knowledge and specific treatment, and the facility takes a holistic approach to managing recovery through sports therapy. Many injured athletes choose Encore when they want a facility that will focus on getting them back into condition to resume the sports they love. While hospitals frequently treat injuries, there is considerable benefit to working with individuals who understand the difference between routine injuries and sports injuries. Torn rotator cuffs, swollen joints, and ACL issues are frequently associated with sports injuries and require the specialized care and technology that Encore provides to get you back to your full athletic potential.

Advantage #5: Personalized Care

Although Encore is a large company, it operates like a series of small businesses. With numerous locations sprinkled throughout Alabama and Mississippi, Encore is able to keep the ratio of patients-to-providers low. You will receive personalized attention from your assigned healthcare professionals in an environment that has all the benefits of a major company and all the charm and attention of a small business. Healthcare can often feel like an impersonal experience in which you are just another statistic, but the Encore experience is refreshingly different. Your case will be managed by thoughtful professionals who genuinely care about your progress and want to help you reach your full potential. Support is an essential component of the rehabilitation process, and the first step in building a strong support network is working with caring healthcare providers.

Advantage #6: Treatment Length Options

Whether you are looking for long-term treatment or a quick and easy rehabilitation experience to help you get back on your feet, Encore has a variety of options to offer. You can choose between inpatient and outpatient care depending on your needs. If you can take time off from school or work, you may benefit from the extended treatment offered by Encore’s inpatient programs. This allows you to receive care around the clock without interruption, facilitating a fast recovery. On the other hand, if your commitments make it impossible to get away for an extended period of time, Encore will work with you to fit appointments into your busy schedule.

Disadvantage: Limited Locations

In spite of its many advantages, there is one major disadvantage to Encore. The company currently only offers facilities in Alabama and Mississippi. However, due to the superior quality of Encore’s services and the professional excellence of its staff members, many patients choose to make the trip and receive care at one of Encore’s many inpatient facilities. Others travel to an Encore facility and receive outpatient care while staying in the area. Your Encore team will work with you to develop a plan that meets your needs and makes travel as smooth as possible. Encore is able to provide personalized care to each of its patients to develop a treatment program that works with every aspect of their life.

Congratulations to the Ocean Springs Spine and Orthopedic Clinic Patient of the Month, Kathy Slaten! Kathy is a native of Ocean Springs, MS and has been receiving physical therapy at our clinic on her lower back. Before physical therapy, Kathy wasn’t able to live the active lifestyle she was used to, and couldn’t perform household duties such as cooking, laundry, or cleaning. One of Kathy’s friends came along side her and recommended she try physical therapy under our DPT, Valerie Sullivan. Kathy has now been with us for 4 weeks and says her back is stronger, has increased mobility, and says she is almost pain free!

“I was ignorant of what physical therapy could do for me, but I am certainly a believer now and would recommend Encore to anyone! I could not be more impressed!”
