James Thrift - Patient of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation-Opelika #EncoreRehab

“I heard about Encore Rehabilitation through a friend of mine. I was having chronic right lumbosacral pain so I decided to see if they could help. The experience has been so rewarding. I’m on my way to recovery due to the knowledgeable Physical Therapists at Encore Rehabilitation-Opelika. Daniel, Keena, Julia, and Trip have all helped me. I’m getting better with each treatment and I’m doing my home program. They have really gone overboard to educate me on how to help facilitate a successful recovery. Sarah is also very nice. She helps with scheduling my appointments and always greets me with that great smile that welcomes everyone that comes to Encore-Opelika.” ~ James Thrift, patient.

Marrene Wilson – Success with Physical Therapy at Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana

Marrene Wilson was having severe pain in her back and leg, so much so that she was limited in her daily activities and having difficulty sleeping. She chose Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana for her rehab because it was close to home and she had heard of others’ success.

Marrene says, “Physical Therapy has helped me strengthened my core muscles in my back and has taken pressure off my sciatic nerve. I am now back to my daily routine without pain. I can sleep comfortably all night. I would recommend Encore Rehabilitation. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. I had success with my therapy.”

We are very happy for you, Marrene! Thank you for choosing Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana to be your Physical Therapy provider!

What is the McKenzie Method?

According to the McKenzie Institute International, “the McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (MDT) is an internationally acclaimed method of assessment and treatment for spinal and extremity pain developed by New Zealand Physiotherapist Robin McKenzie. It has been widely used all over the world for more than 30 years. MDT clinicians are trained to assess and diagnose all areas of the musculoskeletal system. That means that if a problem exists in or around the spine, joint or muscle, an MDT evaluation may be appropriate. MDT is a philosophy of active patient involvement and education that is trusted and used by clinicians and patients all over the world for back, neck and extremity problems. This approach continues to be one of the most researched physical therapy based methods available.”
