And what should you expect after surgery?

  • Therapy should be provided while your child is in hospital recovering from the surgery, and they will usually receive a therapy plan to follow once discharged
  • You can book intensive therapy blocks, or on-going therapy  at The Bobath Centre along with a home programme, what is provided will be tailored to you
  • The therapy blocks focus on improving your child’s body (trunk) control and pelvic stability, and to move their legs with less compensation from the body. The goal with this focus is to improve your child’s ability to stand, walk, balance and move between positions
  • Our Bobath therapist will liaise with your local therapy team and staff at school to work collaboratively together to help your child become more independent
