    Needing Physical Therapy? Go to Atmore Community Hospital. This is not about me, but about my daughter Christy. She will soon be 44 years old. Born mentally and physically handicapped and has epilepsy for the past 40 years. Told by the head neurologist at a large hospital to put her somewhere, forget about her, and to get on with your life.



    Her lifespan was said to be about 25. Had a craniotomy as a baby, broken both hips, and has had other operations over the years. Has lymphedema in both feet and ankles for at least 20 years. We have seen doctors in Birmingham, Mobile, and Pensacola looking for answers to lymphedema...With concerns of toe amputations we turned to a vascular surgeon for help. After meeting and discussing Christy\'s problem he...recommended we see a therapist at Atmore Community Hospital.



    With a little skepticism, we made an appointment. This has been the best decision ever made. Her feet no longer look like balloons...we began to see amazing results. Family and friends are shocked at the results. You can actually see her toes and heel. We were shown how to massage and wrap Christy\'s feet and ankles.



    We no longer take therapy, but knowing if needed we can get quality help. If you or someone you know need this kind of help, please come to see the therapists at Atmore Community Hospital. There are other forms of therapy administered. We were treated not only as a patient but as a friend or family member. The entire therapy staff from receptionist to therapist is highly commended for making Christy\'s treatment, one that will never be forgotten. We have been truly blessed.\"
