FAQ

I have osteoarthritis, will Anooka help me?

expand

Yes, Anooka will help you.

Exercise is the first line of defense in managing pain. Use of virtual exercise therapy has been proven in several clinical trials and been recommended as a primary intervention by OARSI (Osteoarthritis Research Society International).

In 2018, An assessment conducted by Health Quality Ontario observed that people reported positive experiences with a structured education and neuromuscular exercise program, feeling that it had strengthened their muscles and reduced their symptoms of stiffness and pain.

What if I have more than one location where I have pain frequently?

expand

Yes you can still use the Anooka platform, as long as you can perform exercises without supervision. During our assessment please mention about your pain areas, triggers and we will factor it in when preparing your personalized program.

Do I need equipment to perform exercises at home?

expand

Generally a mat, 7-8 feet of free area, chair with no wheels is enough for the exercises. Sometimes you may require use of resistance bands. Our exercise programs are tailored to your available equipment at home. If you progress well and need any additional equipment, we will help you find the right equipment. Just drop a line to your health coach and they will be glad to help you.

What is the science behind Anooka's approach?

expand

At Anooka, we use research-informed best practices in developing our programs for you.
We combine two primary clinical approaches -

1. Virtual and internet based exercise therapy along with mind-body activities and pain neuroscience education for chronic joint pain is proven to be effective in reducing pain and increasing mobility in multiple randomized clinical trials conducted in the last 5 years.

2. Partnered exercising modes derived from Köhler effect that has been widely researched to help with weight loss and for women living with pain from Fibromyalgia, where it was proven to be an effective intervention.

Is Anooka just an app?

expand

Anooka is a lot more than an app that you typically download at an app store.
At Anooka, you get access to another human being who is an expert in coaching, in addition to content and feedback through our technology.
