MSK Conditions – Self-Management App

We are re-launching our highly innovative app that has been developed as a result of close collaboration between the UHL and LPT Musculoskeletal physiotherapy services, Podiatry, LHISS and the LLR Elective Planned Care Team.

Its purpose is to support patients by providing clear, accessible information about common MSK conditions, advice on how to manage an injury, along with exercise videos and links to useful websites to help with self-management. It also provides information on how to self-refer into LLR MSK Physiotherapy and Podiatry services.

The app can be downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
