What does MobileMSK do?
MobileMSK is building software to streamline healthcare for back pain - We want to be your first stop, and in many cases, the go-to solution for managing this condition. Our model provides immediate access and ongoing guidance, relief, and support for back pain.

Periodic check-ins to encourage good health.
Longitudinal programming for relief, recovery, and prevention of future episodes of pain.
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 a leading reason to visit a doctor.
There are 28 million cases of back pain recorded in the USA each year.
Many cases of back pain will not need ongoing medical management, yet this is one of the most expensive conditions in healthcare.
Often, back pain responds to rest, activity modification, and rehab.
Total costs can be reduced substantially by early engagement with PT.
Therapy can be delivered virtually, allowing you to focus on more fulfilling things in your life.
Managing back pain is often 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 can offer 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.
At MobileMSK, we are working to enable patients to stay healthier in their homes, and streamline healthcare for future crises. 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.
