What does it mean to disrupt knee pain?

Most people think that knee pain is all about bones and cartilage. But did you know that your brain and muscles play a critical role in the knee pain you feel?

When we have knee pain, the brain signals the muscles to tighten around the joint to guard against further injury. We then walk differently, putting more pressure on the joint, causing even more pain and creating a vicious cycle. Now you can disrupt that knee pain cycle with AposTherapy.

How AposTherapy disrupts knee pain

AposTherapy brings your body into optimal alignment and re-educates your brain and muscles to work properly again, leading to healthier walking patterns, improved joint stability and lasting pain relief. The treatment includes a personalized program and a patented, foot-worn device that works in two ways:

  • Initially, by bringing your body into optimal alignment with the help of our device, AposTherapy changes the way forces travel through your body, thus reducing the pressure and strain on painful areas in the joint.
  • Then, as you walk with the device, it stimulates and retrains your muscles, ultimately re-educating your body to adopt a corrected and less painful walking style, even when you are not wearing the device.

How the AposTherapy treatment program works

Step One: Initial Consultation

During your initial free assessment, a specially trained physical therapist conducts an in-depth assessment and computerized walking analysis. Your personalized program is developed, and a foot-worn biomechanical device is uniquely calibrated for you to help relieve pressure from the symptomatic areas and start re-training the muscular system around the joints.

Step Two: Treatment as Part of Daily Life

You can fit your therapy in with your lifestyle versus having to fit life around therapy. Simply wear your device for about an hour during your usual activities at home or work. You decide the time and place.

Step Three: Ongoing and Personalized Care

Your specially trained physical therapist will work with you to set goals, monitor your progress and make adjustments to your device and program to optimize your treatment.
