Bobath is a type of physical therapy. The main aim of treatment is to encourage and increase the child's ability to move and function in as normal a way as possible. More normal movements cannot be obtained if the child stays in a few positions and moves in a limited or disordered way. The Bobath approach can help the child to change their abnormal postures and movements so that they are able to comfortably adapt to the environment and develop a better quality of functional skills.
