We want to help others get free physical therapy and encourage them to be consistent. Physical therapy is extremely important in the healing process. Not having a regular schedule and frequent reminders make it more difficult to follow up regularly. Myself and another teammate do physical therapy for our knees and face personal issues with the process. It is very hard to keep track of workouts, stretches, and stay motivated. This app's purpose is to facilitate the healing journey with a humorous appeal.
How it works
You or your physical therapist can log onto your profile with your phone number. Then you can look through our physical therapy database and diagnose yourself. It includes push notifications to remind you to stretch and workout. It has pictures and descriptions on how to stretch/strengthen your muscles properly. Otherwise, your therapist can log on and give you their own weekly workout. This also comes with the option of push notifications that can be sent to your phone a certain amount of times per week. Every time you complete a workout/daily stretch, you can check mark the box every day and then at the end of the week, the site will be able to send a summary to your therapist.

What's next for You Can't DOGE this
We are hoping to add a larger database and make this available to more people. In addition we would like to add body types and more options to make the app more efficient for everybody.
