Opioids are not effective for chronic pain.
Opioids are not a long-term solution for chronic pain. And, yet, they remain over-prescribed for many patients with back or joint pain.
So what can improve chronic pain?
Our program delivers the 3 core pillars of best-practice care.
Hinge Health is based on best practice care guidelines from expert bodies
such as the American College of Physicians and the American Pain Society.
This care has been proven in dozens of clinical trials to reduce pain, prevent
surgeries, and help you get back to the activities you love.
Movement is Medicine.
When it comes to beating chronic back or joint pain, the first step is to keep moving. You’ll be guided through 15-minute personalized workouts of stretching and strengthening exercises 3 times a week. Instead of you having to take time off work to see a physical therapist, our wearable sensors will guide you through each movement.
Coaching & Lifestyle
We’re in this together.
Taking time for your health is hard, and we’re here to support you. Throughout the program you’ll have access to:
- Your personal health coach: To support you, help you stay motivated, and answer any questions you might have.
- Your team: To encourage each other on your journey.
Knowledge is power.
With so much information available, it can be difficult to know what’s relevant to your specific situation. We’ve taken the hassle out of searching by providing articles just for you. You’ll learn about where your chronic pain comes from, effective tips for reducing pain, the ins/outs of surgery, and how to improve your thought habits when things get difficult or too busy.
And it’s super convenient. Even you can do it.
Who has the time to take hours out of their workday to visit a physical
therapist, or spend hours digging through confusing advice online?
Instead, you can do your exercises, learn about your condition, chat with your
personal coach, and more – all from the comfort of your home.
You’ll get wearable sensors that will give you real-time feedback on whether you are doing your exercises properly.

Knee & Back Program
“A former distance runner, I’ve had knee and back pain for 20 years…I’ve had three surgeries already, and was facing a total knee replacement. Just a few months after joining Hinge Health in 2016, I was able to walk 10,000 steps a day with virtually no pain, and avoided another risky and painful surgery. And since the knee pain program helped so much, I also completed the back pain program!”
“Since my injury I hadn’t been able to fully straighten my leg, which led to constant pain in my knee, hip and back. I couldn’t walk, sit or stand for long periods of time… I also gained a lot of weight. The program has helped immensely… I used to have to turn down so many activities with my friends…Being able to walk without pain has given me back my freedom and happiness. I even wore heels again for the first time in 4 years!”
"I was told that I might need another revision surgery this fall but after using this program I have decided against surgery and the pain is diminishing little by little everyday. I have learned that not only is the physical exercise extremely important to achieving a pain free life but the mental\emotional portion is equally as important. Staying educated and positive have contributed immensely to my overall health."
