What does the app do?
The Pain Guru app is designed for individuals with lower back pain. The app helps with confirming a diagnosis, and provides information on different treatment options.
The user is able to go through a list of questions that ask about the pain location, intensity and nature of symptoms. This will give some guidance about a diagnosis.
Different treatment options for each diagnosis are presented, in both text and short video form (approximately one minute each).
This appears to have been designed for individuals to get more information on other specific areas, such as investigations. However the Pro plus link seems to be broken.
✔ Detailed questions around diagnosis. Based on purely subjective interviewing alone, these questions are likely to have a degree of accuracy for helping to recognise a potential diagnosis.
✘ Following diagnosis, all treatment options are listed ranging from exercises through to fusion surgery. There is no guidance as to why one might be recommended over another. This could potentially cause a lot of worry or anxiety for a user.
