We are offering Gransnet users who are living with osteoarthritis exclusive access to Half The Battle, an app designed to help people living with osteoarthritis manage their pain. Download the free app here to begin your journey.

Here’s what Half The Battle has to say: “Suffering from chronic pain can be a lonely and daunting experience. It no longer has to be. Half the Battle is a 3 week, digitally delivered programme that leverages the power of coaching and social dynamics to create meaningful and lasting change. It is designed for people living with osteoarthritis to live well and manage their pain. Download the app here.

Upon registering, you’ll be matched with a fellow group of people living with OA. Our expert coach will then guide you through a curated learning journey on both physical solutions - spanning movement, lifestyle and recovery - to positive reframing to draw on your incredible natural ability to overcome pain. These practical, bite-sized tools are drawn from the latest thinking and science in chronic pain management.”

The app is free and available from the Google Play Store. The next Half the Battle cohort kicks off this coming Monday, 10 February. In the meantime, download the app here to meet your group of new found friends.

Half the Battle is offering £20 in Amazon vouchers to the first users who download the app and participate in the programme for a week or more.

Has anyone received the Amazon voucher? According to the information we’re supposed to get one if we use the app for a week which I have. I hope we haven’t been conned into something here just for our information. Sorry for sounding a bit suspicious.

Grandmajan, I hope you get your voucher but it’s clear in the T&C and Data Sharing info that they have lots of ways they’ll share the information gathered. I felt quite uncomfortable about it.

NotSpaghetti I need to read the terms and conditions. That’s my own fault. Thanks, I’ll do that now.

I don’t think the small print was going to mitigate against you getting the voucher Grandmajan but I just felt there was too much potential sharing/not taking responsibility for data for me. I’m sure the Amazon voucher is genuine and you will almost certainly get it. After all, this came through from Gransnet HQ.

Oh bless you max lack. I'm 54, same as you. Living with chronic pain is should destroying. Osteoarthritis. Three failed spinal surgeries. Top it all now I've just been diagnosed with Vasculitis 🙄😩.
I'd give anything a try as fed up with taking so. Many pain meds including morphine

MAXBLANK This stuff helps me a lot with the pain and acts fast. Doesn't last very long but worth a try. Good luck
