How do You Get Spina Bifida?

The exact cause of Spina Bifida is not known but it is thought that there are certain genes are part of the cause. For instance, if you have one child that was born with the disease it is possible that you will have another child with it. My cousin has the more severe version of this disease which makes it very hard for to walk and while she can use crutches to get around, she is usually confined to a wheelchair.
