Bladder and bowel care

Many people with spina bifida experience varying degrees of neuropathic bladder and bowel – when damage to the nerves interferes with normal bladder and bowel working.

The information in this section explains all about good continence care, from infancy through adulthood. Regular assessments are important, to ensure good continence health and reduce the risk of kidney damage.

For further information contact the specialist nurse at your hospital, or contact Shine by calling 01733 555988 or email firstcontact@shinecharity.org.uk to speak with a specialist adviser.
