What is AposTherapy?
AposTherapy is an innovative non-surgical and drug-free treatment for knee pain and other musculoskeletal disorders.
Initially developed by orthopaedic doctors, the unique individually-adjusted devices that are worn on the feet reduce the strain and pressure on painful joints. 50,000 patients have already been treated worldwide.
The treatment brings the body into optimal alignment, reducing stress and strain on painful areas of the joint by stimulating and retraining muscles. The re-education of the body ensures it adopts a less painful walking style, even when patients are not wearing the device.
This video explains the treatment process in more detail.
