Congratulations to Jalen Plott, Athlete of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation-Dothan!

“In May, I was participating in a 7 on 7 with my teammates. I went up to deflect a pass and came down and dislocated my knee. When I straightened my leg, by extending it out, the knee popped back in place, snapping my ACL in two pieces. I started Physical Therapy with Encore Rehabilitation-Dothan prior to my surgery. In June, I had reconstructive surgery. I choose Encore because the trainer at my school. Lori Long, works with Encore. She is the best and so Encore has to be the best, too! Encore has great therapists.” ~ Jalen Plott,

Jalen is the son of Patrick and Makia Plott of Ozark.  He is Junior at Carroll High School, plays football and runs track and field.  Jalen recently placed second in the 5A-2021 State Track Meet in the 4 x 100 meter relay.   His future plans are to obtain degrees in Business Administration and Criminal Justice.
