Spinal Cord Injury: Relationships

Today, we talk to Dom, an advocate for people with disabilities who suffered a C 5/6 spinal cord injury, and Dr. Adrienne Epps, Senior Staff Specialist and Head of Rehab2Kids at Sydney Children’s Hospital Randwick, about love and relationships after a spinal cord injury. This type of injury and the changes that come as a result can take a toll on self-confidence. Listen in as Dom tells us about his experience.
