What an exciting time this is for heads up! A new website, blog launch and Emma back from maternity leave in September. I started heads up! in 1997 and am still as passionate about my work today. We have grown to a team of five specialist neuro physios, always providing individual, hands on treatment.
Looking for someone to come along to your group and talk about neurological rehabilitation? We give talks to a number of local groups supporting people who have had strokes, Parkinson’s disease and multiple sclerosis. Please get in touch if you would like us to come along to your support group.
For many people the Bobath concept is a new idea, however it has been practised for over 80 years. It is based upon two key principles:
- People with neurological problems can improve their movement skills.
- The importance of treating the body holistically.
First developed by Berta Bobath MBE PhD (Hon), she had come to the UK from Germany in the 1930s with her Czech husband, a neurologist and psychiatrist. She specialised in neurological disorders and set up a centre for children with cerebral palsy.
