The Oxford Physical Therapy Centers Manual Therapy Program for Spine & Joint has been developed with your functional needs and goals in mind.

Physical therapy starts with a thorough postural screen and spinal evaluation by one of our highly trained and Licensed Physical Therapists. During the evaluation, your Oxford Physical Therapy Centers
Physical Therapist will assess: postural deviations, muscle tightness/imbalances, joint mobility, range of motion and neurologic involvement. This information will then be used to identify the causative factors producing pain or limiting your functional status.
