Jayvion Poke-“Lots of fun things to do” at Encore Rehabilitation-Dothan

Say hello to Jayvion Poke, Patient of the Month for Encore Rehabilitation-Dothan!

After fracturing his patella doing back flips on the playground, his doctor recommended physical therapy. Jayvion said, “My favorite thing about therapy there is that there are a lot of fun things to do and we have the best teachers there.”

After several months of therapy, he is progressing well and getting back to doing the things that he loves. We are proud of your progress, Jayvion, and we are glad to have you as our Patient of the Month!

They also teach children exercises designed to help them regain strength and range of motion, and also show them and families how to prevent future injuries.” (Kids Health,  June 2014).
