“I get to help people every day!” Tori Kennedy, PTA – Celebrating National Physical Therapy Month

Tori Kennedy PTA 2Revised

I love that I get to interact with different people everyday,” says Physical Therapist Assistant Tori Kennedy.Being a PTA, I get to help people everyday even if it does not necessarily pertain to the physical therapy world. I love helping people make progress towards their goals-whether it is getting athletes back to sports events or women back to their morning walking routine! I also love getting to make the patient’s therapy visits more meaningful and not just work for them or us.

Tori received her Physical Therapist Assistant degree from Wallace State Community College. She has been practicing for two years and has been with Encore Rehabilitation for one year. Tori treats patients at the Encore Rehabilitation Clinics in Haleyville and Russellville, Alabama.

We appreciate all you do, Tori! Happy National Physical Therapy Month!

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.”

Laura Waters has been a Physical Therapist Assistant for Encore Rehabilitation for 17 years. She is treats patients in the Encore Rehabilitation – Tillman’s Corner/Theodore clinic.

Laura writes, “I personally had an injury and know, firsthand, how devastating it can be. As a therapist, we treat the entire person. Sometimes it requires holding their hand or simply giving them  hug.  I truly love my job and am so happy to help my patients return to their lives!”

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

Thank you, Laura, for all you do! Happy National Physical Therapy Month!
