Spina bifida is a congenital condition that affects the spinal cord, causing varying degrees of physical impairments. Exercise is crucial for individuals with spina bifida to maintain their health, improve mobility, and enhance overall well-being.

Regular exercise offers a range of benefits for individuals with spina bifida, including:

  • Improved muscle strength and tone

  • Enhanced flexibility and joint mobility

  • Increased stamina and endurance

  • Improved bowel and bladder function

  • Enhanced mental well-being and self-esteem
