Benjamin Lee Knight

Saturday, October 21, 2017 marked the inaugural run for the Alabama State University Annual Benjamin Lee Knight Memorial 5K. It was a fantastic fall day to remember Ben, a recent physical therapist graduate from Alabama State (ASU). He passed away June 4, 2017 while hiking in the mountains of Arizona. His fellow students have organized this annual 5K to honor him and his legacy. Ben was known as a selfless servant, a defender of the broken and widowed, and a tender-hearted man who lived life to the fullest by deeply loving those around him.

Encore Rehabilitation is proud to partner with ASU to sponsor this event. Over 100 runners registered for this year’s run. Monies from the event go to local charities and organizations. Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s run.

Janice Daniel Sept2017Revised

We would like to recognize our Encore Rehabilitation of Foley Patient of the Month, Janice Daniel. Janice is from Silverhill and has been receiving physical therapy for five weeks. She came to Encore to regain use of her shoulder following a torn rotator cuff repair. Her progress is going very well.  In 2010, Encore Rehabilitation helped Janice after her knee surgery.  After her knee rehab, Janice was able to return to gardening and doing all the things she enjoys.  Janice says, “Like with my knee, I want to be the best I can be. Encore is enabling me to fulfill my goal!” Keep up the good work, Janice!

At Encore Rehabilitation, we LOVE to see you move!!
