(To see if you qualify for Hinge Health, confirm you are covered at no cost to you through your employer here.)

How Can Physical Therapy Help Your Pain? 4 Key Benefits

Physical therapy is one of the first treatment options providers recommend for most joint and muscle pain. One of the primary goals of physical therapy is to get you back to doing the things you love — or making your daily activities easier — without pain or discomfort getting in your way. At Hinge Health, our physical therapists develop personalized programs of guided exercises designed to help each member improve pain and function, based on their condition and symptoms. Seeing a physical therapist at Hinge Health can help you:

1. Recover from major injuries: Our specialized approach can help you recover from a significant injury, like an accident.

2. Enhance your flexibility and balance: Our expert guidance can assist you in improving your body's flexibility and balance, enhancing your overall quality of life.

3. Support surgical healing: If you've recently undergone surgery, our personalized physical therapy can aid in a smoother, more effective healing process.

4. Relieve pain. To reduce your pain, physical therapists provide exercises that are tailored for your needs and goals and guidance on how to perform them — as well as education about managing your condition.

What Hinge Health users are saying

In these real-life testimonials, Hinge Health members describe their journey to enjoying a fuller life, experiencing noticeable physical improvement, and benefiting from invaluable guidance via our services.

It surprised me that it just took building strength to make a huge change in my outlook. I used to dread going out because walking was difficult and I always had to find somewhere to sit. Now I can go out more with my husband and do things we enjoy. I realized I was probably depressed and didn't know it. Thank you and Hinge Health for making this change happen!
