Thar has answered this question with the best possible definition and this is what I found in Longman Dictionary of Englsih: in everyday English, people usually say get worse rather than deteriorate:
Ex: Her health got worse.
Ex: The situation is getting worse.
But
Ex: Ethel’s health has deteriorated.

English speaking use 'get' when they can't be bothered to think of a proper verb.

We also use "get" when it is the right verb to use!
