Neurological Rehabilitation Services

Rehabilitation at Toronto Physiotherapy is designed to address each individual’s unique impairments in order to maximize physical function and independence. Our physiotherapists have specialized expertise in neurological physiotherapy including advanced training in Bobath and Neuro-Developmental Treatment techniques, and experience in a variety of clinical settings. With a selection of specialized equipment including the first AlterG Treadmill in Toronto, we can address a wide range of neurological physiotherapy needs.

Toronto Physiotherapy can act as your primary neurological rehabilitation provider, or we can help you continue to progress while you wait to transition from hospital inpatient to outpatient programs. Home care neurological rehabilitation is also available.

The Anti-Gravity Treadmill

The AlterG uses differential air pressure to precisely control body weight in 1% increments, in a supported environment, while encouraging normal gait.

  • Promotes neuromuscular and proprioceptive re-training, and brain plasticity.
  • Enhances balance and confidence while encouraging improved gait and stride length.
  • Enables higher work load and training intensity for gait re-training and cardiovascular fitness.
  • Provides a safe environment for multi-task functional training and learning.
