Neuro PT & Suit Therapy for Stroke Recovery

Oxford’s industry-leading model of intensive neuro physical therapy combines conventional and non-conventional techniques to facilitate rehabilitation after a stroke. 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 which are not functioning properly. Our goal goes beyond regaining mobility. We strive to help patients regain proper mobility, so that there are no lurking issues that may cause problems in the future.
