Spina Bifida

Children can experience a wide range of physical problems from a very early age. Spina bifida is such a condition that affects the spine and is usually apparent at birth. The good news is that most children born with spina bifida reach their full potential.

Therapy for babies with spina bifida can begin after the baby is born. Our physical therapists can work with the parents and teach them how to exercise the baby’s legs to increase strength, flexibility, and movement. Our integrated care team will also create an individualized plan for your baby that will further help him/her reach optimal results.

As your child gets older, our integrated care team can work with him/her to address the physical challenges that a life with spina bifida presents.
