GetUBetter MSK App

ONE app for all conditions – your recovery, prevention and support.

This app aim is to enable you to trust your recovery, understand when and where to seek help if needed and help you to prevent and manage and further episodes. Your Healthcare Professionals cannot be with you 24/7 but we can.

The app does the following:
1. Provides personalized and tailored recovery which responds to how you are feeling.
2. Supports and guides day-by-day and step-by-step.
3. Connects you to your local healthcare providers, treatment and support services e.g. GP practice, physiotherapy or wellbeing services.

How it works:
1. Your local Healthcare Provider (e.g. GP practice, Physio or Occupational Health service) will give you the app for a specific problem such as lower back pain, neck pain or knee pain (sometimes more than one).
2. They ask you to provide an email address of your choice.
3. This email address is used to register and link you to your local recovery journey for that problem.

For each condition you will have to answer a few questions, these help us keep you safe and guide your recovery, so thank you so thank you for your patience. We then provide all the advice, guidance, videos, simple exercises, and a symptom checker to support your day-by-day, end-to-end recovery journey.

This app incorporates the “getUBetter – lower back pain” and “Wandsworth Lower back pain” recovery apps.
