Knee Arthritis and AposTherapy®

Does your patient have osteoarthritis of the knee?

Living with knee pain can be hard. Simple activities become difficult. Before recommending knee replacement or injections, some patients may benefit from conservative approach like AposTherapy.

AposTherapy is an FDA-cleared medical device for treating osteoarthritis of the knee.

AposTherapy uses a biomechanical shoe-like device that is personally calibrated by a AposTherapy trained physical therapist (PT) to offload pressure from painful joints. The foot-worn device introduces mild amounts of perturbation, which can help retrain muscles in the knees, hips and lower back.

This therapy fits into your patients’ routine. It’s as simple as putting the shoes on for an hour after work while they are walking around the house or cooking a meal.

The best part is that your patient does not incur any additional cost because AposTherapy is covered by HealthCare Partners.
