Start of Physical Therapy = pain when moving arm in any direction End of Physical Therapy = moving arm in every direction without pain!
“Before I started Physical Therapy at Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana, it hurt just to move my arm in any direction. The therapy helped me get my arm working again. I was taught what I could do and not do. By doing the things I was able to do, I have a complete recovery in less than a month. I recommend to everyone to listen and follow directions. I healed because of the Physical Therapist assisting me, and in record time, too! I would recommend Encore to others!” ~ John Feltenberger, happy patient
We are very proud of Mr. Feltenberger! He regained full range of motion in his shoulder and arm.
If Rehabilitation is in your future, give Encore a call! We LOVE to see you move!

“I was not able to grip or use my right hand due to my broken elbow and in six visits to Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana, Suzanne had me gripping and using my right arm as if nothing had ever happened. She worked with me very patiently and planned out my exercises each visit and got me going quickly . Suzanne is the best! I would recommend Encore Rehab. They are very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable.” ~ Bonita Reed, patient
Thank you, Ms. Reed, for making Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana, your rehab provider! We LOVE to see you move!
“Carpal tunnel syndrome is numbness, tingling, weakness, and other problems in your hand because of pressure on the median nerve in your wrist. The median nerve and several tendons run from your forearm to your hand through a small space in your wrist called the carpal tunnel. The median nerve controls movement and feeling in your thumb and first three fingers (not your little finger).
Symptoms most often occur in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and half of the ring finger. If you have problems with your other fingers but your little finger is fine, this may be a sign that you have carpal tunnel syndrome. A different nerve gives feeling to the little finger.”
Mild symptoms usually can be treated with home care. You can:
Stop activities that cause numbness and pain. Rest your wrist longer between activities.
Ice your wrist for 10 to 15 minutes 1 or 2 times an hour.
