Moving forward: living with a spinal cord injury

In this episode of the Our People podcast, we speak to Troy Andrews about his role at the SA Spinal Cord Injury Unit, which supports patients as they begin their recovery and learn to maximise their independence and abilities. 

Troy was living with his family on a station in Far West NSW until a serous spinal injury set him on a new path. With a keen interest in sport, Troy went on to represent Australia at 5 Paralympics games in two different sports, as part of a highly successful career. 

A gold medal winning Paralympian and an Order of Australia medal recipient, Troy also works as an allied health assistant and wheelchair technician in the Spinal Rehab Unit. Based at the Repat Health Precinct, the Unit is one of the specialised clinical and community health services delivered by the Central Adelaide Local Health Network.
