Her clinical interests include injury prevention programs, post surgical pain, ACL rehab with progression back to sport, and general orthopedic dysfunctions.

Laura Waters, PTA

Encore Rehabilitation therapist Laura Waters, PTA, loves her job!  Laura says, “There are many things I love about my job, so it is hard to point out just one. If I had to say the best thing about being a Physical Therapist Assistant, it would be how rewarding it is to help someone to return to their life. An accident or surgery can be life altering and as a therapist, I play a role in helping people recover and return to an active life.”

And what does Laura have to say about Encore Rehabilitation? “Encore Rehabilitation is a wonderful place to work. They truly care about their employees.
