getUBetter provides local digital self-management support for all common musculoskeletal injuries and conditions such as back, neck, or knee pain as well as pelvic floor health.

It is offered to patients free of change and provides content tailored by their local NHS clinical team.

The app aims to support patients in building trust in the own recovery, gaining a better understanding of when and where to seek help if necessary, and developing the confidence to manage potential future episodes.

The app is suitable for:

  • People with any new, recurrent, or ongoing muscle or joint problem
  • People over 18 years of age
  • People who would benefit from self-management support
  • In some areas of the NHS, you might be provided getUBetter to support pelvic floor dysfunction

The app is not suitable for:

  • People under the age of 18 years of age
  • People with severe, worsening symptoms where self-management is not advised by a clinician
  • People with an injury or condition that requires regular physiotherapy or medical management e.g., after surgery or an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) rupture
  • People with worsening neurological symptoms (numbness, weakness, an unexplained new onset of bladder and bowel symptoms)
  • People with a known diagnosis such as infection, rheumatological conditions, neurological problems, cancer, or fracture
