Encore Rehabilitation-Bessemer West is proud to have Larry Cade as the Occupational Therapy Patient of the Month!
Mr. Cade came to Encore following a stroke. He says, “I like the therapists and I have gotten better at walking and talking.”
Mr. Cade has been a pleasure to work with and always keeps us smiling. He has made good progress with his walking, balance, handwriting, and speech. We have had fun with creating unique and engaging exercises for him, including playing darts, building things, and maneuvering obstacle courses.
Thank you for choosing Encore Rehabilitation, Mr. Cade!

“I had Golfers’s Elbow and Bicep Tendinitis from working out. My soreness turned into pain and didn’t go away. I went to a sports medicine doctor and she prescribed Physical Therapy and Dry Needling,” says Max Weeks. After several weeks of treatment at Encore Rehabilitation-Bessemer West, Max is now getting back to the things he loved doing before the pain. “Before I couldn’t even pick up my one-year old and now I have virtually no pain at all.”
Thank you, Max, for choosing Encore Rehabilitation-Bessemer West to be your rehab provider! We are proud to have you as our Patient of the Month!
