The reason AposTherapy® has worked for so many patients is that it is personalized to each one’s specific needs. The process begins with a full, in-depth clinical consultation of the patient’s problem joints, pain levels and day-to-day restrictions. This evaluation forms the basis of a personalized one-hour-a-day treatment program, which blends effortlessly into the patient’s daily life.
Was treated with professional, excellent, and attentive services through out the total process. Truly appreciated the anesthesiologist, Dr. Sharif explanation of the procedure, great reflection of Dr. Freeman’s Team. The RN’s Meagan and Jessica were personable and consistent in making me feel comfortable with care.
Over time, as you continue to use the AposTherapy® device, your body’s natural biomechanics should improve dramatically – your muscles and posture should become stronger and healthier. As a result, your foot-worn AposTherapy® device will need to be readjusted to fit your improved walking patterns.
Therefore, your therapist will continually reassess your program at follow-up consultations. During follow-up consultations you will repeat many of the examinations that you did at the initial consultation and when necessary your AposTherapy® device will be adjusted and your personalized treatment program updated, to ensure you reach optimal outcomes.
At your initial consultation, a computerized gait analysis will provide an objective, scientific assessment of the way you walk – including load distribution on each leg, stride length, gait symmetry and more. This along with the rest of the assessment enables the clinician to customize the AposTherapy® program to your unique needs and objectively compare your progress throughout the treatment.
No. AposTherapy® transforms your normal routine into a positive and simple rehabilitation process. The treatment aligns your body and re-educates your muscles with minimal interruption to daily life. In fact, you won’t feel as if you’re working your muscles at all – you’ll just gradually notice improvement. Exercise in addition to AposTherapy® is helpful and your trained AposTherapy® clinician can advise you on which exercises will be best for you.
AposTherapy® fits seamlessly into your everyday life and takes place wherever you are: at home, at work or outside. You only need to wear the device for about an hour a day. The treatment is easy to comply with, fits with your lifestyle and lets you decide the time and place.
The process includes an initial visit to a trained AposTherapy® clinician for initial consultation, which typically lasts up to 1.5 hours and then 3 to 5 follow-up consultations, which typically last for around an hour each.

Generally, the AposTherapy® treatment is not suitable for individuals who:
If the surgery is in one month or more, AposTherapy® can help prepare the joint for the surgery and enable improved muscle activity until the surgery is performed. As a result of the treatment, the muscles should respond well to rehabilitation post-operatively, which will assist in returning you to normal function with less postoperative pain.
Yes. AposTherapy® enables efficient and relatively rapid rehabilitation, with less pain. AposTherapy® assists in the implementation of proper and symmetrical gait patterns following joint replacement and will improve stability and confidence when walking.

It is FDA-cleared as a medical device for treating knee OA and as a wellness device for treating other musculoskeletal conditions, including lower back pain. AposTherapy® is appropriate for most patients of all ages, including elderly patients. All AposTherapy® patients are assessed for suitability and continuously monitored. Clinical experience indicates that any side effects are minimal and rare and may manifest in mild fatigue and muscle spasms. In rare cases where these appear, they pass very quickly as treatment progresses.
“They fitted me with my shoes and spent a lot of time adjusting them to make sure they were just right for me and that walking was very comfortable…I gradually was able to start to wear them outside of the house and to start walking in the park again, which is huge for me so it’s great.”Justeen
“The first day that I came in here and I put these on, I cried…because I could move, and I could walk like a normal person again, and I hadn’t had that feeling in almost 2 years.”
