Head & Spine 

The following are some of the conditions which impact the head and spine: 

Cleft Lip & Palate
The two plates of the skull that form the roof of the mouth are not completely joined.

Cerebrospinal fluid circulation is impaired, resulting in a build up of fluid and pressure on the brain.

The development of the brain slows down, or in rare cases stops growing in the womb or after delivery.

Myelomeningocele (Spina Bifida)
The spinal cord fails to close during development causing damage to the spinal nerves.
