Why go digital for back pain?
Back pain is an extremely common condition.
80% of us will experience back pain during our lifetime.
Back pain is the leading reason to visit a doctor.
There are 28 million cases of back pain recorded in the USA each year.
Most cases of back pain do not need ongoing medical management, yet this is one of the most expensive conditions in healthcare.
Nearly all cases of back pain respond to rest, activity modification, and rehab.
Total costs are reduced substantially by early engagement with PT.
Therapy can be delivered virtually, allowing you to focus on the things that mean the most in your life.
In many cases, managing back pain is a process of trial and error.
It is common to feel anxious and frustrated when living with pain.
Unproductive office visits and inefficient care can make you feel hopeless in your recovery.
Forgoing care leads to escalating disease and cost of care.
What does the future of healthcare look like for MobileMSK?
In many ways, software like MobileMSK offers a buffer to the inefficiencies of traditional brick-and-mortar healthcare. The ability to record and respond to patient care data in real-time opens avenues for more proactive and cost-effective care. Eventually, it will make sense to restructure high-performance clinical care alongside an ambient virtual healthcare environment.
With MobileMSK, patients stay healthier in their homes, and healthcare is streamlined when a crisis occurs. We believe in a digital health marketplace that encourages proactive versus reactive healthcare. Patients should have more immediate and regular contact with health experts so critical issues are recognized and addressed in a timely manner. They will only appear in the clinic when necessary or preferred to support the care delivered online. Traditional brick-and-mortar operations and facilities can be repurposed to reduce waste and support community-wide preventative health and well-being.
