Spinal Cord Injury: Dom’s Story

Everyone’s experience and prognosis after a spinal cord injury is different – no two injuries are the same! This can be extremely frustrating and confusing, but whether you have suffered a spinal cord injury, or have a friend or loved one who has, it may be helpful to hear the story and experiences of someone else.

Through our partnership with Northcott’s SpineCare Foundation, we met Dom Freestone, who tells the story of his C 5/6 spinal cord injury and life after, in his own words. Dom went from serving in the Royal Australian Air Force to being an advocate for himself and others living with disabilities – and he’s learned a lot along the way. There are 6 episodes, each focusing on a different aspect of life after a spinal cord injury diagnosis.
