Encore Rehabilitation wears Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2020

Encore Rehabilitation Corporate Office and Decatur Central Billing Office showed their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month by wearing pink.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month helps to increase attention and support for the awareness, early detection and treatment of Breast Cancer. Breast Cancer affects women and men. According to WHO, when breast cancer is detected early, and if adequate diagnosis and treatment are available, there is a good chance that breast cancer can be cured. 

A few Breast Cancer Facts from the National Breast Cancer Organization:

  • In 2020, an estimated 276,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. as well as 48,530 new cases of non-invasive (in situ) breast cancer.
  • 64% of breast cancer cases are diagnosed at a localized stage (there is no sign that the cancer has spread outside of the breast), for which the 5-year survival rate is 99%.
  • This year, an estimated 42,170 women will die from breast cancer in the U.S.
  • Although rare, men get breast cancer too. In 2020, an estimated 2,620 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year in the U.S. and approximately 520 will die.
  • 1 in 8 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime
  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer in American women, except for skin cancers. It is estimated that in 2020, approximately 30% of all new women cancer diagnoses will be breast cancer.
  • There are over 3.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
  • On average, every 2 minutes a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States.

National Fall Prevention Awareness Day

**From the ChoosePT.com website: Falls and a fear of falling can diminish your ability to lead a full and independent life. Although 1 in every 4 older adults falls each year, falling is not a part of normal aging. You have the power to reduce your risk of falls. A physical therapist can help you do so by:

  • Assessing your risk for falling
  • Designing an individualized plan for your fall-prevention needs
  • Helping you make your home as safe as possible
  • Educating you about the medical risk factors associated with falls
  • Providing you with appropriate exercises and balance training
  • Working with other health care professionals to address any underlying medical conditions that could increase your fall risk
  • Providing you with recommendations on appropriate community programs

Encore Rehabilitation Physical and Occupational Therapists can help you avoid or recover from a fall. Call us for more information!

**To read more about Falls, Fall Prevention, and how Physical Therapy can help, read the rest of this article at “Physical Therapy Guide to Falls” at ChoosePT.com

How to Deal with Summer Heat

Heat Exhaustion or Heat Stroke infographic #EncoreRehab

Summer time in the South means lots of heat and humidity! Here are some tips for dealing with the summer heat!

  1. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids. Do not wait until you are thirsty to start hydrating. A sports drink can help replace lost salt and minerals from sweating.
  2. Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.
  3. NEVER leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. NEVER.
  4. Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing that covers as much skin as possible. Protect your face and head with a wide-brimmed hat.
  5. Avoid working outside during the hottest part of the day. Take frequent breaks.
  6. Pay attention to what you eat and drink. Eat less of salty foods and eat more fruits and vegetables. Also smaller, more frequent meals will help.
  7. Seek indoor, air-conditioned activities. If you do not have air conditioning, visit public places with air conditioning like the mall, the library, or restaurants.
  8. Stay tuned to the local forecast on the radio, television, or internet.
  9. Be sure to check on family and friends who do not have air conditioning and may live alone.
  10. Learn the signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion. Heat-related deaths and illnesses are preventable, but it’s important to identify the warning signs and to react swiftly and appropriately when they arise.

We wish everyone a fun and safe summer!

Happy Better Hearing and Speech Month to Leah Hyche, SLP!

Speech-Language Pathologist Leah Hyche celebrates Better Hearing and Speech Month with #EncoreRehab

Encore Rehabilitation wishes a Happy Better Hearing and Speech Month to Speech-Language Pathologist Leah Hyche !  

Leah LOVES her work and LOVES helping others!
“l love my job! I knew I was in the right field while working with my first patient during a clinical rotation.  The child was non-verbal with minimal ability to functionally communicate.  Building a relationship with the patient and family enabled us as a team to establish a communication system that was effective and efficient. I was able to watch not just the child transform but the whole family.  Watching this transformation take place was life changing as his abilities went from essentially no communication to being able to communicate his wants and needs with his family.

    “There are numerous, amazing moments in my career I could share. Playing a role in helping a child form his or her first word or sentence, seeing a child play with a toy or another child appropriately for the first time, and of course, when you hear a parent say their child said ‘I love you, with words or some other form of communication, is amazing!
     “And I love to work with adults, too! I have formed many special relationships over the years. Helping an adult work through speech, language, cognitive tasks, or to improve function of eating/swallowing is one of the most rewarding experiences.
     “My job is about building relationships, caring for my patients, and in turn helping them reach their goals!” ~Leah Hyche, SLP
 Leah is a native of Hamilton, AL.  She attended The University of Alabama and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Communicative Disorders and Master of Science in Speech Language Pathology.  She has been a clinician for eleven years and has practiced with Encore Rehabilitation for almost 6 years. Leah is also Vital Stim certified. 
Speech-Language Pathologists evaluate and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication disorders, and swallowing disorders in individuals ranging from birth to geriatric individuals. Speech Therapists work with the individual, families, physicians, and other related therapies to form an individualized treatment plan to maximize the patient’s rehabilitation potential.
If you’d like to ask Leah questions or receive Speech Therapy Services, contact the Encore Rehabilitation clinics in Winfield, Haleyville, and Hamilton.
