The tethered cord syndrome is a neurological condition that causes an abnormally low position of the spinal cord within the spinal canal. This alteration prevents normal development. The symptoms caused by this disease in children include difficulty walking, scoliosis, foot deformities, impaired bladder function and other problems that appear gradually with growth. In later times, the tethered cord syndrome can cause back pain and leg weakness, muscle atrophy, numbness ... The treatment for this condition is, in most cases, surgery to release the spinal cord position in which it is anchored.
