[NEWS] HEALTH NOTES: Physio sessions now arriving at platform 1

‘Digital physiotherapy’ is now available to back-pain sufferers – even if they are on a train, at work or abroad. The smartphone app provides 24/7 virtual consultations with experts, downloadable exercise videos and rehabilitation plans created by experts.

All information is developed by health professionals approved by a company called Ascenti, which is the leading provider of physiotherapists to the NHS. Users can also use the app, called PhysioNow, to book private and NHS-funded sessions with trained clinicians.

About two-thirds of Britons are said to suffer back pain at some time in their lives, with musculoskeletal problems accounting for a third of all GP appointments.

A test version of the app launched earlier this year. It has been downloaded by 1,400 patients.
