Physiotherapy Intensives for Adults in Toronto and Etobicoke

There is no clinic yet using the TheraSuit® to support adults – until now!

One of the difficult barriers for adults with neurological conditions is having the endurance required to maintain functional abilities. At All About Physio, we provide physiotherapy intensives with TheraSuit®! This is a soft, breathable, dynamic orthotic suit with bungee-like cords attached. Patients wear this suit for support while a therapist leads them through guided exercises designed to strengthen and target specific muscular areas of concern.

Physiotherapy intensives often take place in the Universal Exercise Unit (UEU/Spider Cage) for stabilization of pulleys and bungees. This is a customizable therapy designed for your specific needs!

We are proud to provide our structured TheraSuit® Method Intensive Program. This is 3-4 weeks of intensive 3-hour physiotherapy, 5 days/week. To learn more, call our clinic, or get started by registering online!

Universal Exercise Unit (Spider Cage): A supportive structure for exercises that incorporates bungees and pulleys. The UEU, often referred to as the Spider Cage, incorporates the use of a pulley system and bungees. Strengthening in the pulley system helps to target specific muscles groups and isolate weaker muscles. The use of the bungee suspensions allows the therapist to ensure the patient is well-aligned while performing functional activities while keeping the therapist’s hands free to assist in the activity.
