What happens when you suffer a spinal cord injury? What are the treatments out there? And what are the services that will help you navigate your injury from the moment you leave the hospital?
These are the questions that are raised in this year’s Spinal Cord Injuries Australia, or SCIA, Independence Expo, held last weekend at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh. This year, the expo received more attention due to the high-profile coverage of the devastating spinal cord injury to NRL Newcastle Knights player, Alex McKinnon.
