**The Gatorade Player of the Year award was established in 1985 to recognize the nation’s most elite high school student-athletes for their athletic excellence, academic achievement and exemplary character.
Patricia Cargile of Millport, Alabama, had problems with her knees which prevented her from walking well. Even small daily activities like getting up out of a chair or stepping up on a curb were difficult for her. Patricia chose Encore Rehabilitation-Vernon for Physical Therapy to regain strength and mobility in her legs. She is now walking much better and now looks forward to going on walks for exercise.
Congratulations, Patricia, on being selected Patient of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation-Vernon! At Encore Rehab, we LOVE to see you move!
