Anticipatory Guidance

Girl in wheelchair speaks with medical professional
Children with spina bifida have specific medical and social needs. This guideline addresses needs including general preventative health, obesity, hypertension and musculoskeletal pain. Our goal for children with spina bifida is to keep the child physically and mentally healthy, identify risks of secondary conditions and limit preventable emergency department visits and hospitalizations. This health promotion and preventative health guideline is grouped by age to help healthcare providers monitor children with spina bifida across their life span.
