The COVID 19 pandemic pushed a large growth of online resource of apps, YouTube exercise channels, and websites offering advice available to utilise for home and inpatient therapy.

Whilst there are many therapists, both private and NHS, now utilising video services to provide assessments, therapy and advice as standard practice (referred to as TeleRehab) there are also more opportunities available to supplement this by using these online therapy resources.

We thought it would be helpful to provide a link to the most commonly used ones in one place. If you have found others not listed below that have been particularly helpful we would love to hear what these are and we can then add them. The majority of the apps below are free to download so well worth trying them out to see which is the most beneficial for you.
