Bobath Therapy

A neurological approach to therapy

Bobath Therapy is a neurological approach to the treatment of children with cerebral palsy and other allied neurological conditions. The key to Bobath therapy is to help your child develop mobility and function through ‘normalising’ their movement pattern. This can be done by specific handling and helping your child to limit/change more abnormal movements and postures. This is relevant for children presenting with hypertonia (stiffness), hypertonia (floppiness) and also for children with ataxia and athetosis; by helping them to gain more stability and control their movement.
