David Weatherly suffered a stroke two years ago. He couldn’t walk, drive, or use his hand. He felt like his inability to drive became a burden on his wife. He decided he wanted to drive again!

Working with his physician, David was referred to Singing River’s Neuro Rehab Clinic in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. Here David would take part in the Driving Simulation Program with Encore Rehabilitation Occupational Therapist Christa Anderson.

Ocean Springs Spine and Orthopedic Clinic Patient of the Month, Kathy Slaten.

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!”
