The staff’s knowledge and caring shines in all areas of your therapy. I feel welcome when I enter the door. I’m always greeted with warm smiles! I feel the pain of therapy is bearable due to the staff’s caring attitudes. I know I’m in the hands of the best! It’s calming to have faith in the ones caring for you during your therapy. I’m thankful and blessed by the Fayette Encore Rehabilitation Staff. I felt like Encore was the place for my physical therapy. I LOVE my Encore Staff!

Physical Therapy: A Good First Choice Before Surgery for Meniscal Tears and Knee Osteoarthritis

“Mild meniscal tears and moderate knee osteoarthritis send some people under the knife, when all they really need is physical therapy.

recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine found no significant difference between individuals who received surgery and those who received physical therapy alone, thus avoiding the unnecessarily invasive procedure and related costs.

Dr Edward Laskowski, codirector of the Mayo Clinic Sports Medicine Center, told Men’s Journal that physical therapy might prove equally effective for other knee injuries, including MCL, PCL, and cartilage tears (Try Physical Therapy Before Surgery – April 29, 2013).

“If you have good range of motion, physical therapy may very well settle down the symptoms over time,” Laskowski said.
