Bobath Therapy 

Bobath concept is one of the most frequently used in restorative therapy for patients with neurological diseases. Bobath therapy at CBS has shown its effectiveness in treating children with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and other CNS disorders. Bobath therapy is a program of help for a child with limited motor activity that promotes the development of controlled movements and activity throughout the day.

The Bobath technique is based on the unity of mental and physical processes. It is a holistic therapy aimed at suppression of pathological movement patterns and postures and stimulation of correct movements. The treatment focuses on restoring the normal functioning of the entire body. The Bobath therapist seeks to expand the set of normal movements, to make it more qualitative and varied.

It is possible to implement the Bobath method when the patient is in a certain position, in which there is an impact on certain points of the body. This stimulates the work of specific muscle groups involved in the motor act. The complex of stimuli used allows for the activation of reflexes as they should be manifested in normal, natural motor activity.

Aims of Bobath Therapy

  • restore normal muscle tone, strengthen muscles;
  • develop mobility in immobile parts of the body;
  • stimulate inactive muscles, awaken reflexive behavior, reactions;
  • to extend the set of postures and movements;
  • to stimulate the perception of one's own body;
  • to increase the child's activity, independence, to teach daily household rituals.

Indications for Bobath Therapy

As a rule, cerebral palsy and Down syndrome are diagnosed in toddlers, so Bobath therapy is an effective method of rehabilitation for them. Autism Spectrum Disorders are not always immediately recognizable.

ASD Symptoms in Children

Children with ASD have a variety of developmental and behavioral disorders. This is manifested by the presence of the following symptoms in which the child:

  • avoids looking directly at the person;
  • speaks of himself or herself in the 2nd or 3rd person;
  • does not identify his/her self;
  • bites his/her nails;
  • tends to do monotonous, long actions;
  • repeats words and phrases or is silent and only mooing;
  • screams loudly and monotonously for no apparent reason;
  • not interested in toys;
  • shows signs of speech activity, but his speech development has stopped;
  • is withdrawn, does not answer if he is addressed, does not respond to his name;
  • does not show interest in cooperative play with other children, is not involved in the general play process;
  • is prone to display hysterical and/or aggressive behavior, emotional outbursts for no apparent reason, etc.

The Bobath Center at our clinic provides guidance to parents in teaching their children to crawl, sit, turn, walk, and get on all fours. Rehabilitation programs are tailored individually, taking into account the child's physiological characteristics and comorbidities.

  • Epilepsy (in the acute phase);
  • ARI and other infectious diseases with fever;
  • Inflammatory processes (in the acute phase);
  • Recently undergone surgery.

If the child has dislocations or subluxations of the joints, an additional opinion from an orthopedic surgeon is required.

Diagnostics Before Bobath Therapy

To achieve results Bobath Therapy for children takes into account the individual emotional, motor and psycho-speech characteristics of the child, his or her abilities, on which the therapy elements are based, gradually developing them with constant stimulation and correction.

In our center Bobath therapy sessions for children are conducted after consultation with a neurologist, neurosonography (if necessary) and EEG. The patient is evaluated taking into account the nature of the lesions and peculiarities of the disease, individual manifestations of motor activity and opportunities to maximize the effectiveness of movements.

Bobath Therapy Principles and Technique 

To get the most effective results from Bobath Therapy, treatment of children with neurological disorders is best started at the age of 3-6 months. The rehabilitation program for cerebral palsy and Down syndrome is multi-step and includes parent training and Bobath Therapy classes for children.

Bobath Therapy is Based on Three Basic Principles:

  • inhibition - inhibition of unnatural postures, movements that interfere with correct natural development;
  • facilitation - enhancement of normal (correct) movements;
  • stimulation - the use of tactile and kinesthetic stimuli, thanks to which the patient perceives and learns correct movements.

Bobath Therapy sessions for children take place in the form of games, which helps the doctor to build a friendly and trusting relationship with young patients, and the children feel more relaxed and comfortable. Neurorehabilitation and rehabilitation treatments are not just for children.

Bobath Therapy does not cause emotional or physical discomfort; it is absolutely painless. All movements are done at a measured, suitable pace for the child. New loads are introduced gradually. During treatment, special attention is paid to normalizing muscle tone and facilitating voluntary motor activity with special manipulations.

Bobath Therapy exercises can be performed using the wall bars, metal hoops, balance board, circular skateboard, and other orthopedic devices. Such exercises help to stimulate movement even in patients with severe neurological disorders. To develop fine motor skills, doctors use wooden puzzles and pictures, beads, pyramids, cars, river pebbles, wooden frame-inserts, etc.

The course of Bobath Therapy is not standard or repetitive, as it is constantly adjusted to the changing needs of the patient.

Bobath Therapy Effects

  • ability to independently care for oneself, serve, and perform simple household tasks;
  • restoration of hand-eye coordination;
  • adequate perception of the body;
  • activation of natural reflexes;
  • the patient's functional independence and reduction of the adverse effects of neurological disorders.

Довго шукали, де можна пройти реабілітацію в Києві. Зупинилися на ЦСМ і анітрохи не пошкодували. Залишилися дуже задоволені і заняттями, і ставленням персоналу. Однозначно рекомендую!

У моего ребенка синдром Дауна. Для кого-то это диагноз, а для меня просто особое состояние, при котором ребенок требует постоянного внимания и регулярных занятий. В ноябре проходили курс реабилитации в центре. По совету Ольги Ивановны Селезневой решили попробовать Бобат-терапию. Результаты очень порадовали. Улучшилось общее состояние, моторика, малыш стал намного спокойнее. Спасибо за ваш ежедневный труд и поддержку!

Бобат-терапія

Добрий день! У центрі я проходила реабілітацію після інсульту. "Біда" зі мною трапилася 1,5 роки тому, але до цих пір не можу відновитися остаточно. Курси реабілітації проходила неодноразово в інших клініках - безліч різних процедур, після якихось ставало ненабагато краще. Тут мені стало легше вже після третього сеансу бобат терапії, через два тижні пройшли болі в голові і ногах, стала впевненіше хода. Медперсонал воістину творить чудеса! Удачі вам і процвітання!

Відгуки пишу рідко, але тут не могла втриматися. Дитина у мене особлива, вимагає постійної уваги, сам не ходив, тільки з підтримкою. невролог Ольга Іванівна спостерігає нас з народження, саме вона порадила записатися на консультацію до Мандзюк В.В. За що ми їй безмежно вдячні! Після курсу бобат терапії ми нарешті пішли самі! Паралельно робили масаж і займалися на фітболі. Зупинятися не будемо, з'явилася надія, що не все так безнадійно!

Искреннее спасибо всему персоналу ЦСМ! В центр попали по совету знакомых. Когда мы обратились за помощью, сыну было 3 года, и мы могли только сидеть и не уверенно ползать. Благодаря вашей кропотливой работе наш малыш за полгода работы начал ходить! Пусть и коряво, но зато сам! Виктория Владимировна, вы лучшая в своем деле! Огромное Вам спасибо!

Хочу выразить слова глубочайшей благодарности Центру и лично врачу-неврологу Ольге Геннадьевне Козубенко. Ребенок у нас долгожданный и, как говорится, “выстраданный”. Поэтому, когда нам сообщили, что у малыша ДЦП, это прозвучало, как удар грома среди ясного неба. Ольга Геннадиевна наблюдала нашего малыша с самого рождения. Мы сдали кучу анализов и прошли многочисленные процедуры. Когда Славе исполнилось полгода, нам рекомендовали пройти курс бобат терапии. Начинать было сложно, и слезы и сопротивление малыша. Но результат налицо - ребенок смог самостоятельно сесть. Эффект однозначно положительный! На этом останавливаться не собираемся, будем заниматься столько, сколько нужно. Спасибо всем сотрудникам за прекрасное отношение и чуткость!
