Neurophysiological Assumption underlying of Bobath approach

Neurophysiological Assumption underlying of Bobath approach

  •  Sensation of movement are learned, not movement per se
  •  Basic postural & movement patterns are learned which are later elaborated on to become functional skills.
  • Every skilled activity takes place against a background of basic patterns of postural control, righting, equilibrium & other protective reaction, reach, grasp & release.
  • When brain is damaged, abnormal patterns of posture & movement develop which are incompatible with the performance of normal everyday activities.
  • The abnormal pattern develops because of sensation is shunted into these abnormal patterns.
