    My 14 year old son just got diagnoses with spina bifida occulta, by a chiro... He was in football, first year, and was having pain with running. He did pull out,and I will have his physical in a few weeks. How frequent is the tethering with this condition?? I don't remember any dimpling with him as a baby, but he did have alot of hair, in general, not just at the sacrum.
    Thanks in advance for any input

    My daughter is 13 and was diagnosed with spina bifida occulta by chance about 4 years ago. She was at tumbling and had a nasty fall, and was told to go get a full body x ray. That is when I was told about the spina bifida occulta. She is a level 5 competitive cheerleader and runs track at school. She occassionally complains of back pain, but nothing an NSAID doesn't take care of. I haven't even told her of her dx's. I was told if she started complaining of severe back pain to follow up with a neurologist.

    Im 19 years old and I have a dimple. I was born with it and so was my mother. I grew up fine and with no concers and now my daughter has it and she is fine. To be honest i thought i was the only one that had it growing up. so i never talked about it or searched it but apparently it is something that is common.
