Using the Bobath Approach to Head Injury Treatment

In our clinic we are happy to take on all clients with neurological issues.

We use Normal Movement Patterns, Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation, Functional Movements and Bobath to treat neurological conditions.

Many patients are discharged from the health services when they have reached a certain level and length of time from their neurological episode, we are happy to work with all clients no matter what stage of their rehabilitation or disease progression they are at.

Assisting return of function in a child with cerebral palsy

 

We have experience with all neurological conditions but tend to see more strokes, head injuries and cerebral palsy than other conditions, as many people do not realise that physiotherapy treatment is available to help them maintain their mobility, strength and flexibility if they have a progressive disease, or to help them regain function if they are recovering.
