‘Seniors smashing goals’ is a regular catchphrase here at The Physio Co – and that maxim has been met emphatically with our 1000th exercise target being achieved.
Paula is our champion record-setter after working hard with her TPC physiotherapist, Sue.
A chance conversation in a pharmacy between the two led to Paula joining up with The Physio Co to address a long-standing back pain problem.
Paula is a fascinating and incredibly intelligent 91-year-old lady who lives in Sydney. Some unfortunate events (involving water leaks and paintwork) had left a bit of a mess at Paula’s home, which she wanted to fix up. So with Paula she decided her goal should be to “have less back pain so that I can do some decluttering and tidying up around the house”.
Her home is now beautifully furnished and decorated, and you would never guess there had been any mess as Paula’s got everything back in order thanks to her improved mobility. That’s right – Paula emphatically smashed her goal!
1000th exercise target
When Sue told Paula that she had achieved The Physio Co’s 1000th goal, Paula was very proud and excited, quickly sharing the good news with her family.
Kathy Soo, who is Sue’s Team Leader, says: “Paula has an amazing memory and a fabulous sense of humour. Unfortunately a long history of back pain has made life a bit harder for her, but with Sue’s help and her own commitment to exercising, she’s been able to keep moving.”
At The Physio Co we were delighted for Paula – and of course all those other 999 clients who have helped us towards this cause for celebration.
When Sue asked Paula how we might celebrate this special goal being achieved, she pointed to one of her pot plants that was struggling and suggested: “How about a new one of these?”
A vibrant, flowering new violet plant was duly delivered to Paula and a special moment was completed with a bunch of flowers for Sue.
Like those floral arrangements, Paula and Sue’s exercise partnership is flourishing, and illustrates how our dedicated physios are such an important part of The Physio Co’s mission of ‘helping seniors smash their goals’.
