There is no cure for spina bifida occulta, but treatment is unnecessary for most people as they have no symptoms. When symptoms do occur, they are treated individually:
  • If a person suffers from back pain, they could receive physiotherapy or pain medication to help manage this.
  • If tethered cord syndrome occurs due to spina bifida occulta, it may be possible to have simple surgery to free the cord.
Even though surgery is usually successful, the cord can re-tether and, therefore, the surgery may need to be repeated several times. To learn more you should go to a medical professional. Keyword: cure spina bifida
