Schools are encouraged to actively work with students, parents and carers to create a school environment which is supportive of spinal health.

Posture, use of computers and load carrying can all impact on spinal health.

The Sydney Children's Hospital Network provides information on numerous physical, developmental, and behavioural issues. This includes factsheets on Spina bifida and Spinal cord injury.
