“I was in septic shock and had to have surgery on my foot. I was bed-bound for a year and a half and had drop foot. I was in a wheelchair,” says Marlette McMahan.

I was able to make really good progress form the wheelchair to walking.”
We are so proud of you, Marlette! Congratulations on being our Patient of the Month!
Thanks for choosing Encore Rehabilitation-Petal to be your rehab provider.
Summer time in the South means lots of heat and humidity! Here are some tips for dealing with the summer heat!
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.
Stay indoors as much as possible and limit exposure to the sun.
NEVER leave children or pets alone in closed vehicles. NEVER.
Wear loose, lightweight, light-colored clothing that cover as much sun as possible. Protect your face and head with a wide-brimmed hat.
Avoid working outside during the hottest part of the day. Take frequent breaks.
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.
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.
Stay tuned to the local forecast on the radio, television, or internet.
Be sure to check on family and friends who do not have air conditioning and may live alone.
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.

Encore Rehabilitation-Dothan is proud to give a shoutout to our very own Physical Therapist Bonnie Yesian on the completion of her 13th Boston Marathon Run! Way to go, Bonnie!
“I’ve been running since 1994 and started training for my first marathon in 2000. Since then I’ve completed 25 marathons along with numerous half marathons and shorter distance runs. I have now completed 13 Boston Marathons. Other races have included the New York Marathon; Chicago Marathon; California International Marathon (Sacramento); St. George Marathon; Houston Marathon; and Austin Marathon. I obviously like the sport but even more than that, I’ve loved all the extra benefits and unexpected life lessons running has taught me over the years. I’ve met the most amazing people and lifelong friends through running. I hope to continue as long as the good Lord allows me to run!” ~ Bonnie Yesian, PT

“I chose Encore Rehabilitation because they were more equipped for my needs,” shares Darrell Kimbrell of Berry, Alabama. “Spine and back surgery caused me to lose the ability to walk due to loosing all the feeling in my left leg.
