What is Oxford Physical Therapy?

The Oxford Physical Therapy piece to the Oxford Recovery Model is an intensive neuro-physical therapy model that uses cutting edge equipment to retrain the body in proper mobility and posture. Our approach concentrates on retraining from a neurological standpoint compared to the traditional muscular approach. The therapy sessions are three hour-long, one-on-one periods allowing our therapists to focus on your specific needs without interruptions.

 

The Oxford Physical Therapy approach starts from the basics. Our goal is not for our patients to simply regain mobility, but to regain proper mobility. In our three hour sessions our patients are trained in specific ways to stop compensation from different muscle groups of the body to ensure that there is not lurking issues that often cause our patients problems in the future.
