“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.”
After receiving an injury to her right elbow, Ranae Arrington needed physical therapy. Her injury lead to swelling in the hand and problems with her shoulder. Why did she choose Encore Rehabilitation – Russellville for her therapy? “Word of mouth,” states Ranae. “I was told Encore was really good and cared about their patients.”
We thank you, Ranae, for choosing Encore as your rehabilitation provider! Happy National Physical Therapy Month!
