After football season last fall, Eli Young started rehabilitation on his knee with Encore Rehabilitation-Fayetteville. By the time his primary sport, soccer, came into season, he was ready to go! An ankle injury at the first soccer practice left him on the sideline. Just as he was released to play again, the COVID 19 pandemic brought all high school sports to halt. As a Senior at Fayetteville High School, it was less than an ideal way for his high school sports career to end. Fortunately for Eli, his ankle is better and he has found a new interest, Physical Therapy!
“When I started rehab with Sarah at Encore, I didn’t know that I would enjoy therapy as much as I did. It helped me so much that I wanted to learn more about the profession. It’s definitely an option for my future career,” says Eli.
Eli has job-shadowed Clinic Director Sarah Suddarth for several months now, learning all he can about Physical Therapy. Eli has proven himself to be a responsible, caring young man. We are very proud of him and consider it an honor to have had the opportunity to know him as a patient, athlete, and friend. As he enters school this fall at The University of Tennessee, we want to wish him every success and happiness!
Encore Rehabilitation-Fayette would like to recognize Eli Young as Patient of the Month and Athlete of the Month! This young man is so remarkable, one honor just isn’t enough!
