Celebrating National Physical Therapy Month with Ranae Arrington

RubyRanaeArrington RussellvilleRevised

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!

It’s Athletic Trainer Tip Tuesday!

This tip is from Eric Oehms, ATC.

“One tip that I tell my athletes when needing to elevate a lower extremity during sleep to decrease swelling.  Instead of using pillows that get matted down or end up on the floor, elevate the mattress at the foot of the bed.  My suggestion is to use a dresser drawer and place it between the mattress and box spring at the foot of the bed.  Your leg will stay elevated the entire night.”
