AposTherapy® offers a new approach for the treatment and management of knee conditions based on the latest scientific evidence regarding the central role biomechanics plays in the pathophysiology of knee OA and other knee pathologies. By combining optimal body alignment with controlled perturbation while walking as part of daily routine, AposTherapy® restores neuromuscular control, instilling desirable patterns of motion for significant reduction in pain, and improvement in function and quality of life.
Clinically proven to provide significant and lasting pain relief
Many AposTherapy® patients report a significant pain relief as early as their initial consultation, when experiencing the AposTherapy® unique biomechanical device for the first time. An independent survey, conducted in the UK indicated that 86% of AposTherapy® patients reported a reduction in pain, the vast majority in just over a month. What’s more, pain relief is long-lasting. One recent clinical trial re-examined knee osteoarthritis patients two years after using AposTherapy® and found that level of pain reduction was maintained.
Move confidently whether walking, climbing stairs or exercising
AposTherapy® was developed by orthopaedic specialists to help with a range of musculoskeletal conditions that result in limited joint function. As part of AposTherapy® you receive a personally adjusted biomechanical device which releases pressure from your painful joint and introduces controlled micro-instability to re-educate your muscles. AposTherapy® instils correct patterns of motion as you walk, which enables effective motor learning. By combining correct body alignment with micro-instability, the unique AposTherapy® technology represents a breakthrough in the treatment of knee pain and is clinically proven to provide long-term improved joint function.
Flexible and fully personalised care programme, meeting your specific needs
AposTherapy® treats you the patient as an individual. During your initial consultation and throughout every follow-up at an AposTherapy® Centre your ACPT, specially trained physiotherapist, will conduct a number of examinations in order to develop a personalised therapy programme that responds to your unique treatment needs. You’ll experience our state-of-the art computerised gait analysis lab, complete pain, joint function, and quality of life questionnaires, as well as be interviewed and physically examined by your dedicated ACPT to assess your movement patterns. With AposTherapy®, your individual progress is closely monitored and whenever necessary your personalised treatment programme is adjusted and the biomechanical device re-calibrated to ensure the best possible therapeutic results.
Ensures your treatment outcomes are optimised
Your ACPT regularly initiates phone check-ups to personally monitor your progress more closely, as well as continually reassessing your therapy programme at follow-up consultations which take place at the AposTherapy® Centre. Here you’ll repeat many of the examinations you did at the initial consultation to provide an objective and subjective assessment of your progress. Throughout the process, wherever necessary, your unique biomechanical device is adjusted and your personalised therapy programme updated to ensure your optimal treatment outcomes.
Clinically-proven, drug-free and non-surgical therapy
AposTherapy® is drug-free and non-surgical treatment that is registered with the FDA and CE marked. AposTherapy® is appropriate for patients of all ages including the elderly. Every patient is continuously monitored throughout the entire treatment process by specially trained ACPTs. Extensive clinical experience indicates that any side effects are minor and rare and may manifest in mild fatigue and muscle spasms. In rare cases where they appear they pass very quickly as treatment progresses.
Therapy that fits seamlessly into your daily life
AposTherapy® blends into your everyday life, for around an hour a day, making treatment easy to comply with for the best results. AposTherapy® transforms your ordinary daily routine into a positive, pain-free rehabilitation process. You decide the time and place, fitting therapy in with your lifestyle as opposed to having to fit life around therapy. Treatment aligns your body and re-educates your muscles with minimal interruption to daily life and maximum rehabilitation. In fact, you won’t feel as if you’re working your muscles at all: You’ll just stop noticing the pain.
