Is joint or muscle pain keeping you from doing the activities you love? We know that seeing a physical therapist in San Francisco isn’t always easy. That’s why we developed our digital program to address your pain more quickly, from the comfort of your home. Our program is designed for an easy integration into your daily routine, offering simple but effective exercises that fit even the busiest schedules.

Our care team, which includes licensed physical therapists in California, will assess your needs and pain management goals, craft a personalized program, and help guide you through your journey to less pain.

How Physical Therapy Can Help Your Pain

Physical therapy is one of the first treatment options many providers recommend for joint and muscle pain. One of the main 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, we believe physical therapy and movement is vital to boosting strength, increasing flexibility, and conquering pain. 

Physical therapy can help you to:

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

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.

Experiencing Pain? Hinge Health Can Help

At Hinge Health, we’re dedicated to providing expert care and equipping you with knowledge and confidence to conquer your pain. We developed cutting-edge technology, including computer vision that analyzes your movements, gives real-time feedback, and curates personalized “playlists” of exercises for you.

  • Head and neck

  • Shoulders and arms

  • Back

  • Hips

  • Knees and legs

  • Ankles and feet

  • Lower back

  • Shins and calves

“I can consistently climb stairs stepping up with both legs. Might not sound like a big deal but I haven't been able to do that in a decade!”

Karin R., Hinge Health Member

“Exercise helps me de-stress from the day, and it makes me feel stronger. Hinge Health has taught me all movement matters, and this is what motivates me to show up. As we know, showing up can be the hardest part of exercising. Finishing it is one of the best feelings ever!”
