Tethered spinal cord syndrome is a progressive neurological disorder resulting from improper growth of the neural tube during fetal development.
Some symptoms of tethered spinal cord include hairy patches, dimples or fatty tumors on the lower back of your child. What many people do not know is that tethering of the spinal cord can happen either before or after birth in children.
If you suspect your child may have tethered spinal cord syndrome, it is essential to have him or her tested to accurately diagnose and treat the condition. While there is no way of preventing tethered spinal cord syndrome, many individuals experience positive outcomes with the appropriate treatment.
