When you download the app, you will be asked a few questions. Based on your answers, you will either be connected to one of our licensed physical therapists, or referred to another care provider. Together with the physical therapist, you will review your symptoms and medical history to ensure that our treatment is suitable for you.
During your program you will each day receive two easy exercises with video instructions in the app. These take around 5-10 minutes to perform. After completing an exercise, you will report to your physical therapist how it went. If necessary, your physical therapist will tailor the exercise to your level of pain and physical ability. Initially, the exercises will be of a simpler nature so that you get used to the movements and find the right technique. The exercises will gradually increase in difficulty as you become stronger, experience less pain and feel safer. This increase is guided by your physical therapist and based upon the feedback you provide in your follow-ups.
When you start your treatment, you will be connected with a physical therapist who will help you get started with your individual exercise program.

Your physical therapist is available for questions every day of the week in the app.
