Self Care

We speak to lots of people with spina bifida who aren’t having regular health checks with a specialist. 

We’ve written a guide to help you avoid some of the common health problems associated with spina bifida, and to help you know what support to ask for from your GP.

Problems with kidneys, skin and tissues, feet, bones and joints are often experienced by people with spina bifida, and the earlier they are picked up and treated, the better the long-term outlook.
