People have been wondering how AposTherapy® relieves knee and lower back pain with no effort. This is how the AposTherapy footworn device re-educates your brain and body towards better movement patterns while you go about your regular routine.
How does that work? AposTherapy works ‘in the background.’ Here’s how…
If you prefer reading, here are the words to the video:
Have you ever been pondering a problem one day and woken up the next morning with a solution?
Do you know why that happens?
It is because your brain has a fantastic ability to work things out in the background while you’re doing other things.
AposTherapy applies this same idea to treating joint pain. By wearing the AposTherapy footworn device for about an hour a day, you can go about your regular activities while your brain and muscles work in the background.
When you wear your AposTherapy device while doing something as simple as preparing your breakfast, the brain is doing more than thinking about a cup of coffee. It is simultaneously learning about how the muscles in your legs and in your back can work together better.
The secret lies in the placement and calibration of the under-sole ‘Pods.’
The Pods are custom-calibrated and optimized, by a trained clinician, according to your specific body alignment, symptoms, movement patterns and medical history. Thus, various inserts, sizes, and placements can be used.
The Pods’ convex surfaces are designed to cause a slight wobble—also known as “micro-instability”— which stimulates your brain to make small but important adjustments in your muscle control and movement patterns.
Over a few months of AposTherapy your muscular control improves and these new movement patterns become second nature.
And this is why you can treat pain and improve function, without surgery, injections or changing your daily routine.
