What is Bobath Therapy?

Helping you-handsIf you have neurological disability, therapy at the Bobath Centre can help you re-establish the physical skills needed for active participation in everyday life, regardless of your age or how long you have had the disability.

Our highly skilled team of neurophysiotherapists have years of experience treating a wide variety of neurological conditions including stroke, MS, traumatic brain injury and cerebral palsy.

The team is led by Christine Barber, Bobath tutor and therapist, who is internationally recognised as a leading expert in cerebral palsy in adult life.

Adult standing with supportUsing specialised handling techniques, Bobath neurophysiotherapists can reduce muscle stiffness and help to restore movement so that regular activities such as walking, dressing, or eating can be carried out with greater independence.

The Bobath approach to treatment can significantly help people living with a neurological condition to re-establish the physical skills required for everyday life.

Pioneered by Berta Bobath in the 1950s, the Bobath approach has achieved recognition as one of the foremost ways of treating and managing people with neurological conditions.

The concept continues to be developed by Bobath therapists working in this specialist field.
