Local Business Spotlight: Encore Rehab

The whistle has blown, the play comes to an end, and a player lies on the ground holding his right knee, obviously in pain.

This is the critical moment when the Encore Rehabilitation Sports Medicine Team responds.

Encore is excited to be providing these Sports Medicine services and much more to Eufaula and surrounding communities. Encore began working with Eufaula High School when the school was in search of a full time, comprehensive athletic training program for their athletes.  Encore’s Jessica McManus, MEd, ATC worked closely with the athletic department to establish the needs of their athletic program and soon began sideline and game coverage as well as on-site athletic training services. To expand our team, Encore opened an outpatient rehabilitation clinic for provision of Physical Therapy services with Shannon Montgomery, Physical Therapist, DN Cert, and Patient Coordinator Danielle McDaniel, RN .

“Encore Rehabilitation is the largest privately-owned rehabilitation company in the Southeast and we are the Official Provider of Athletic Training and Rehabilitation Services for the AHSAA  (Alabama High School Athletic Association),” said Shannon Montgomery. By establishing an outpatient clinic in the same area as their athletic trainers, Encore maintains a strong continuity of care for injured athletes. This makes for an easier and more effective process of communication between the athlete, athletic trainer, coach, parents, physician, and therapist.

In addition to working with athletes, our clinic provides physical therapy services to patients with a variety of medical conditions. These services assist patients in returning to an optimal level of activity following surgery, illness, or accident. Encore’s rehab team provides treatment to assist in reducing pain, improving strength, balance, and endurance. A few of our treatment methods include but are not limited to Dry Needling techniques for reduction of pain, dedicated exercises for vertigo or dizziness, and functional training for return to work and play.

Encore Rehabilitation, Inc. has been providing rehabilitation in communities throughout Alabama and Mississippi for more than 30 years, in over 100 locations. They provide therapy in 85 outpatient clinics as well as athletic training and sports medicine services to more than 130 High Schools, Middle Schools, and Colleges.

The Encore Rehab team of Eufaula welcomes the community to call or visit our clinic to better understand what physical therapy can do for them and will work with their personal physicians as needed.
