A physical therapy clinic utilizes genetic profiling to devise a treatment program for recurring joint and muscle pain.

Almario Physical Team’s new treatment program Prueba uses an innovative diagnostics technology to devise the right procedure to address patients’ muscle and joint pain.  
Almario Physical Team (APT) offers a new program, dubbed Prueba, which uses an innovative diagnostics technology from the United States to determine the patient’s underlying health problems on muscles and/or joints, which usually occurs even after the patient has already taken medicines or when procedures were already done.

Using results of the genetic analysis, Prueba combines pain management, weight management, and strength and conditioning in one program.

This helps patients return to their productive lives and reach their maximum health potential, without worrying of constantly going back to their physiotherapy centers, a common issue among physical therapy patients who have poor weight management according to APT chief executive officer Ayeza Almario.

According to Almario, the increased weight places more stress on joints in the lower back, hips, knees, and ankles. The body’s reaction from extra stress brought by poor weight management and sedentary lifestyle leads to symptoms of pain, tightness, and postural issues.

“During our seven years in the physical therapy industry, my team has constantly been looking for how we can treat patients to prevent the recurrence of pain,” said Almario, adding, “It’s not because I don’t want to see them again but because I understand what they are going through.”

With her personal experience, the physical therapy clinic CEO, who does a lot of traveling, can attest that a busy lifestyle can bring disadvantages to one’s health. For one, she shared, she experiences stress from a strained body.

While she does regular visits to their clinic to check on her back pain and continue her strength and conditioning regimen, she knows that managing her health need not be a trial and error method.

“If I, myself, spend this much time and effort but still unsatisfied with my results, what more our patients?” she mused.

“I told myself that I want a map that will bring me to the right direction for my health. I want to share this map with our patients so we can help them save time, energy, effort, and money.”

Almario said she was inspired to bring this development to a larger audience so that more people not only receive health treatment which has value-for-money but also save time and effort.

The Prueba Premium Program consists of world-class machines including Rehab Roller, Rehab Capsule, Vacuum Treadmill, Body Composition Analyzer, and Real Time Ultrasound Imaging for core muscles.

APT’s physiotherapists are trained to use these machines, keeping in mind the mission of providing patients the most comfortable and pain-free experience.

APT is a group of medical practitioners, and highly skilled and licensed professionals. They have been trained to analyze the results of the gene profile, and have extensive experience in the recommendation of treatment through a thorough medical assessment.
