At your first session, your AposTherapist, a specially trained physiotherapist, will conduct a clinical evaluation. This includes pain, function and quality of life questionnaires that helps us develop a personalised treatment programme that responds to your unique condition.
There are multiple factors that we analyse:
- Step length – you tend to take shorter steps when you’re suffering from knee pain
- Load distribution on each leg – less weight tends to be placed on an injured leg
- Walking velocity – injuries often make people walk slower
- Gait symmetry – this helps assess any limping
This helps clarify how the way you move may be causing your pain. Based on the evaluation, you will receive your own personally adjusted shoes to relieve pressure from your knee and re-train the muscular system around the joint.
Daily Treatment at Home
AposTherapy blends into your everyday life, making it easy to comply with for the best results. With an estimated hour each day, AposTherapy transforms your ordinary daily routine into a positive, highly effective rehabilitation process. You decide the time and place, fitting treatment in with your lifestyle, as opposed to having to schedule your life around therapy.
Everyday activities, such as walking from room to room and getting up from a chair, allows your body to learn without you even noticing it. This daily treatment also corrects movement patterns as your joints perform hundreds of repetitions. With every step, AposTherapy is instilling optimal walking patterns in you.
Ongoing Patient Care
AposTherapy is a dynamic treatment, constantly appraised and adjusted to ensure optimal success throughout your programme. In addition to follow-up consultations, your AposTherapist will regularly contact you to personally monitor your progress more closely.
At every follow-up consultation, your treatment programme is reassessed. With the computerised gait analysis and questionnaire, your AposTherapist will continually review your progress. If necessary, your AposTherapy shoes will be re-calibrated, updating your therapy programme.
Enjoy Your Favourite Activities Again
Independent surveys show that 85% of AposTherapy patients report lesser pain after treatment, in just over a month. In some cases, patients can experience immediate pain relief during their very first consultation.
With AposTherapy, every step you take relieves the stress on your painful joints. At the same time, your muscles are trained to correctly control your movements, even when you are not using the device. Treatment has minimal interruption to daily life and maximum rehabilitation.
In fact, you won’t feel like you’re working your muscles at all. You’ll just stop noticing the pain so you can move with confidence and be yourself again.
