Cerebral palsy is a permanent disorder of posture and movement resulting from brain damage occurring in pregnancy around the time of birth. Affecting approximately one child in every 400, cerebral palsy affects both the messages received by and sent from the brain, as well as the way in which the brain interprets these messages. Although the effects vary widely, impaired movement is the most common and obvious result. With a limited repertoire of movement, children with cerebral palsy can find even simple activities require a lot of effort.
Although there are no miracle cures for cerebral palsy, Bobath Therapy can, and does, improve posture and balance, offering the opportunity for each child to reach their full potential and to lead a more fulfilling life.
Bobath Scotland employs professional therapists skilled in the Bobath Concept. As a Tertiary Centre, children are referred through NHS paediatric consultants. Our main fundraising comes from the Public underwritten with nominal funds from the NHS.
Bobath Scotland has operated since 1995 during which time over 500 children have benefited from this important Service.
