The Bobath concept describes an approach developed in the 1940’s by Dr Karel Bobath and Mrs Berta Bobath. It is a well-known treatment intervention for people with neurological conditions and is widely used and well respected in countries worldwide.
It is based on the therapist’s understanding of normal movement and their ability, through their handling of a patient, to give them the sensation of movement in order to assist appropriate restructuring of the nervous system to regain movement and function.
The physiotherapists at Bristol neurohysio have extensive experience of using Bobath techniques in rehabilitation and management of various neurological conditions.
