HYDROTHERAPY HELPED MICK O’DOWD GET HIS LIFE AND HEALTH BACK

Mick O’Dowd: Reclaiming Life with the Transformative Power of Hydrotherapy

A bout with sepsis turned Mick O’Dowd’s life upside-down overnight. After prolonged confinement at a hospital’s Intensive Care Unit, doctors recommended the amputation of his limbs to save his life. From being an active, lifelong outdoorsman, Mick’s life suddenly became uncertain.

Never a person to back down from challenges, Mick fought back with gritty determination to reclaim his mobility and independence. He turned to the Allied Health Team at Healthstin to tap into hydrotherapy to improve his health and get back his functional capacity.

In the beginning, he swam on his back and tried laps in the pool before progressing to swimming on his stomach and doing high-intensity interval training, eventually adding a parachute for greater resistance. Mick is now back to sailing and is planning to return to diving in the future.

Mick’s inspiring story is a testament to his grit as well as the power of hydrotherapy to help overcome immense health challenges. It took great trust on Mick’s part to collaborate with the Healthstin team to work together and customise a water-based program to help him get his health back.
