“Thank you, Secili and Optimal Motion PT for seeing the potential in my ability to heal that surpassed what I dared to dream! I came to Secili after seven years in a wheelchair with a highly complicated medical history and little lasting progress under the care of five other physical therapists. I was frail, weak, fatigued, and the future looked bleak. Unlike so many medical professionals, Secili looked past the diagnosis on my prescription and saw me as a whole person in need of healing. On days I had appointments with Secili, my husband could see that I was more joyful and energetic. She has consistently been an encourager, motivator, cheerleader, advocate, and cared for me like a family member. At the beginning of 2020, Secili had helped me begin walking on the treadmill and a pace of one mile in 45 minutes was miraculous.
Once the impacts of COVID began, I was concerned that I would lose much of the progress I had made. Secili encouraged me to do circuit training twice a week in her office, while continuing to walk and hike with my husband. While few patients were coming into the office, the staff at Optimal Motion welcomed my husband to workout alongside me to provide extra motivation. By the summer, I ran my first 5k in less than 40 minutes and my doctors were shocked. Although I still have medical challenges, I’m in the best shape of my life, and working out is now one of my passions.
Thank you, Secili and Optimal Motion for coming alongside me on this journey of healing, as I know that God brought all of you into my life when I needed hope and healing the most!”
