Spina Bifida through the Life Span: Management Considerations from Infancy to Adulthood


This course provides an overview of the management of children and adolescents with spina bifida, including current evidence for best practices in this patient population, as well as a discussion of challenges and health complications related to spina bifida in the adult age. We will review pathology, clinical presentation, current medical and surgical intervention approaches, and key precautions. We will also explore evidence-based therapeutic management in different life stages, with a focus on interventions that promote participation and functional gains. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and is therefore appropriate for the PT and PTA.
