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