- What is AposTherapy?
AposTherapy is an innovative, personalised, drug-free and non-surgical treatment for knee , hip and lower back pain, which has been clinically proven to alleviate pain and improve mobility.
Developed by doctors from the fields of orthopaedics and sports medicine, AposTherapy is based on established scientific principles of bio-mechanics and neuro-muscular control. The therapy utilizes an individually adjusted unique biomechanical footworn device and is performed as part of a patient's day to day activities. AposTherapy re-educates the brain and muscles to work properly again, brings the body into optimal alignment and creates healthier walking patterns and improved function.
AposTherapy was established in 2005. To date it has helped over 50,000 people in the U.S., Israel, the U.K. and Singapore. In the UK AposTherapy is covered by major Private Medical insurers such as Bupa, Cigna, Aviva and WPA.
