Meet Floyd Gosset, a patient of Renew Physical Therapy, and keynote speaker for the 8th Annual Soirée for TangoStride in Seattle. Floyd’s transformative rehabilitation at Renew Physical Therapy, overcoming balance issues and gaining newfound independence, reflects the heart of his inspiring story. This year, Floyd’s story adds a personal touch to the broader initiative of TangoStride, an event that fosters inclusiveness and empowerment through dance. In this Q&A, we learn more about Floyd’s journey and experience receiving treatment at Renew Physical Therapy.
Q: Why did you seek treatment at Renew Physical Therapy?
A: I was having a problem with balance after a health issue and after falling four times last year, my sister recommended Renew Physical Therapy.
Q: What was most rewarding about your experience working with the team at Renew Physical Therapy?
A: Everyone, and I do mean everyone, makes you feel really comfortable when you walk in. Marissa (Missy) has spent time getting to know me, which I think helps with our sessions.
Q: What was the biggest challenge you were able to overcome during your rehabilitation?
A: I am no longer cane dependent.
Q: What is the 8th Annual Soirée for TangoStride event? What is your role?
A: A dressy afternoon affair, to ensure that money is never an obstacle for anyone who wants to get movin’ with the TangoStride Program, powered by 501c3 nonprofit Hugs that Empower, providing dance opportunities for people with disabilities.
