C) bobath (NDT)
This treatment uses stages of synergies in neurological rehab for hemiplegia:
This treatment meathod consists of observation of fuctional performance, analysis of strategies used to accomplish tasks, and assessment of impairments. works to resolve impairments then implement compensatory strategies via plasticity, and retrain using functinal activities.
