Intensive Physical Therapy

TheraSuit Method

Oxford’s industry-leading model of intensive physical therapy combines conventional and non-conventional techniques to facilitate rehabilitation. Our approach focuses on retraining the body and brain from a neurological standpoint compared to the traditional muscular approach. Therapy sessions are one on one and last three hours. These long therapy periods allow our therapists to focus on your specific needs without interruption.

The Oxford physical therapy approach starts with the basics. Patients are trained to use muscles correctly, rather than compensating for muscle groups that are not functioning properly. Our goal goes beyond regaining mobility. We strive to help patients regain proper mobility, so there are no lurking issues that may cause problems in the future.

The History of Suit Therapy

Originating in the Russian space program, the TheraSuit Method has had a fascinating journey to being able to help neurological disabilities.

The TheraSuit Method

The TheraSuit Method, one of the methods Oxford uses to maximize healing potential, involves an approach that looks at how the body responds to neurological inputs.
