Health Information

The aim of our "Health Information" pages is to provide you with as much information as possible on spinal cord injury (SCI), its complications, and the management of common problems.

As no two spinal cord injuries are the same, some of the information may not apply to your specific circumstances.

By its very nature, this information can only be a general overview.It does not constitute professional advice and should not be relied upon as such. If you have particular questions about problems relating specifically to you, please contact your doctor, health professional or one of the staff of the Queensland Spinal Cord Injuries Service.
