Health Issue: Spina Bifida

Assistance and Comfort

Thanks to new medical treatments and technology, many people born with Spina Bifida can now expect to live into adulthood. However, they potentially face several different challenges that are unique to people with Spina Bifida. There are many resources available that can be helpful in managing these challenges. Some of these include:

SBA has also produced a comprehensive health guide for adults with Spina Bifida. Available either in print or on CD, the Health Guide for Adults Living with Spina Bifida is available through the National Resource Center. It covers a wide range of topics related to adult health issues from learning and sexuality to bowel and bladder management.

For more information on this question and other related topics, SBA offers a series of fact sheets and publications. Additional questions or requests for information should be sent to the SBA National Resource Center.
