Welcome to another blog post!
Here at The OT Clinic, we see many tear-jerking moments. We see success after success after success. It’s what drives us.
This is Mary’s story – a featured video on our Facebook page which you can watch here.
Mary is 46 years old, married, and has 3 kids.
In February 2000, Mary got into a car accident that changed her whole life.
Mary survived the car crash 18 years ago. But 2 years later, Mary sustained horrific injuries to her spinal cord due to a fall she had during her rehabilitation.
This rendered Mary clinically paralysed in both legs.
In 2005, all doctors gave up on Mary and told her she won’t walk again. Therapy was stopped, and Mary was given an electric wheelchair. This was her new life.
This ‘new life’ is where Mary does what is so inspiring; so encouraging; so powerful. She didn’t give up. She didn’t accept that sentence. She changed her destiny.
In March 2017, Mary met Carol from The OT Clinic and began attending intensive therapy.
Mary began physiotherapy both with Hydrotherapy and Oxygen Therapy.
Mary says she loved the team effort at The OT Clinic and that the team here would not let Mary give up even when she felt like giving up.
Now in 2018, after 1 year of therapy, Mary is up and walking with confidence.
Mary achieved what doctors told her she couldn’t. She changed her life.
We hope the story of Mary can show you that you’re never too far gone; you’re never too unable; you’re never too diagnosed for therapy.
We just love seeing success stories like Mary – and we believe in our hearts that there will be many more to come.
