After working at ALMH only seven
months, Knox has already made an impact by creating great patient
experiences. A patient nominated her for the award.
"Amy was pleasant and professional
during my therapy treatments. She explained my causes of pain and
the exercises to help relieve the pain very well. Amy was a great
motivator, encouraging me every step of the way even when we found
more pockets of pain to deal with as my sessions continued. I have
been recommending ALMH therapy to others. It is great," said the
patient in the nomination.
Knox was born and raised in
Rushville and currently lives in Athens. She earned a bachelor's
degree in biology from Illinois College and completed a doctorate
program in physical therapy at Washington University in St. Louis.
As a physical therapist, Knox evaluates patients to diagnose their
