What is getUBetter? 

The getUBetter App is a safe and effective way to help you self-manage your injury or condition at home, work, and on the move.  

The app covers a range of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions… 

  • Back                             
  • Back & Leg     
  • Neck               
  • Shoulder     
  • Elbow          
  • Hip
  • Knee
  • Ankle
  • Soft Tissue Injury (Lower Limb)
  • Upper Limb Tendinopathy
  • Lower Limb Tendinopathy

…and is designed to help you trust your recovery, live and work well.  

The App is designed to support people with new, recurrent and long-term musculoskeletal conditions. The platform provides lots of useful information to help people whilst they are waiting to be seen, recovering following surgery or managing an ongoing condition.

It will also allow doctors, nurses, and other clinicians to send people for the right treatment and service. This is much better for people because they are empowered to recover with the right information and support. It’s also great for healthcare providers because they can direct people towards the best services to treat people with musculoskeletal conditions.

The FREE getUBetter app designed and written by your local clinicians in Derbyshire. It offers local tips, advice, and exercises tailored to you and your stage of recovery.
