Read the August issue of FORWARD now!











This issue of FORWARD is jam-packed with a variety of articles from SCI people and medical experts who work within the SCI community.  We’ve listened to your feedback about the subject areas you’d like to see covered in the magazine.  So, in this issue, you can read about Cauda Equina Syndrome and the support available for people living with the non-trauma SCI. 

Many newly-injured people of parenting age often have questions about parenthood and in this issue, we focus on fertility from the male perspective.  You can read information and advice from top urology experts and find out how one SIA member approached fatherhood following his injury.  

You can also read about the lastest SCI research projects that are being carried out and find out how you can get involved.  There is also a variety of articles in the Daily Living section, ranging from the latest assistive apps and websites to the importance of play therapy for children and young people with SCI.

If the August issue of FORWARD inspires you to write an article for a future edition of the magazine, contact the editor, Breda, at

Enjoy your read!
