Musculoskeletal care for pelvic floor disorders

A common MSK condition, overlooked and underserved by the healthcare system

One in four women has a pelvic floor disorder, but most don't receive treatment due to a lack of awareness, stigma, and inadequate access to pelvic floor physical therapists. Therefore, the average time it takes for them to receive care for certain conditions is more than six years.

Care for the unique musculoskeletal needs of women

Hinge Health is setting a new standard for nationally accessible and clinically validated pelvic healthcare to improve care and outcomes for women across the US.

The Women's Pelvic Health pathway supports women at all stages of life, including pregnancy, postpartum, and menopause, when pelvic disorders are most common. Care is provided for the full continuum of pelvic floor disorders, including:

  • Urinary incontinence
  • Bladder & bowel disorders
  • Pelvic organ prolapse
  • Pelvic pain
  • Diastasis recti
  • Sexual dysfunction

A complete pelvic health pathway that includes:

Comprehensive care team support with same-day video visits with highly trained pelvic floor physical therapists who customize digital exercise programs, women's health coaches to spur lifestyle modifications, and urogynecologists to support care escalations.

A single platform for accessing all MSK care delivers unprecedented flexibility when coordinated care is required, such as when treating pelvic floor disorders that co-occur with hip, back, and other MSK pain.

Pelvic health education is integrated in all Hinge Health programs to increase awareness, tackle stigma, and ensure members receive the care they need sooner.

Proactive identification of high-risk members who would benefit from a pelvic health assessment via HingeConnect's integration with 1 million+ in-person providers.
