Walking

What a Difference for Hayden Mobley!

In December of 2017, Hayden Mobley was in a car accident. Hayden says, “I had broken ribs, internal injuries, a crushed hip and pelvis, crushed knee, my femur was broken in six places and I also had a level 15 concussion.”

Hayden chose Encore Rehabilitation-Hamilton to be his rehab provider. His results after six months? He says, “Thanks to Encore, I’m back to working out, walking, boxing, and welding.”

Hayden, you have made amazing progress! We wish your every success! Congratulations on being selected Patient of the Month!

Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month

multiple-sclerosis-awareness-month-copy.jpg

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an abnormal response of the body’s immune system  against the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord, and optical nerves). It affects the flow of information in the brain and between the brain and the rest of the body.
  • Anyone may develop MS.
  • 2-3 times more women than men develop MS.
  • MS is not contagious or directly inherited.
  • More than 2.3 million people are affected by MS worldwide.
  • MS symptoms occur when the immune-system produces inflammation within the CNS.  The inflammatory attack damages myelin, (the protective insulation surrounding nerve fibers), oligodendrocytes (cells that make CNS myelin) and sometimes the underlying nerve fiber.
  • Common MS symptoms include: fatigue; vision problems/ ringing/numbness; vertigo/dizziness; muscle weakness; balance/coordination problems; walking difficulties; speech and swallowing problems; bladder/bowel problems; cognitive difficulties; emotional changes; sexual dysfunction; and mood swings/depression.
  • The damage caused by inflammation can produce symptoms that resolve over weeks to months or symptoms that are permanent.
  • MS does not always cause paralysis. The majority of people with MS do not become severely disabled. Two-thirds of people who have MS remain able to walk, though many will need an aid, such as a cane or crutches.
  • Environmental factors, such as low Vitamin D and cigarette smoking have been shown to increase the risk of MS.
  • MS occurs in most ethnic groups but is most common in Caucasians of northern European ancestry.
  • Managing MS is an ongoing process, beginning with the very first symptoms and continuing throughout the disease course. It’s never too soon or too late to think about how to access high quality, comprehensive, interdisciplinary care.  **

    At Encore Rehabilitation, our team of Physical, Occupational,
    and Speech Therapists can help patients with MS
    to ease many of your symptoms and move, think, and feel better.

    If you are one of the estimated 2.5 million people
    diagnosed with MS, ask your doctor about
    rehabilitation with Encore or call us today.

Jean Stevenson – Feeling Better

Jean Stevenson shared her recent experience with Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana:

“I was having sharp pain in the left leg and it was hard for me to walk and get around. After therapy, the pain is almost gone and I can move a lot freer. I can also do my work easier. Therapy has really helped me feel better.” – Jean Stevenson

Thank you, Jean, for choosing Encore Rehabilitation-Columbiana as your physical therapy provider!
