Hinge Health’s Free Services Are Expanding to Help Recovery From Smaller Joint Pain

Hinge Health, Illinois Tech’s digital exercise therapy partner, is expanding their services to include support for recovery for elbow, hand, wrist, ankle and foot joint pain! Services for these new programs will continue to be completely free for Illinois Tech’s Blue Cross Blue Shield health plan members and their eligible dependents. Programs for back, knee, hip, neck, shoulder and other joint pain continue to be available as they have been.

All eligible members need to do to get started is enroll (click here to sign up). Once enrolled, Hinge Health will create your customized care plan, and your personal health coach or physical therapist will guide you through exercise therapy in the Hinge Health app. Depending on your treatment plan, your care team could include a physical therapist and a health coach. You will keep the same care team throughout your experience. Each program is designed to meet the unique needs of the member—from prevention, to acute, chronic and pre/post surgery care, all from the comfort of home in just 45 minutes per week. Plus, when needed, programs may also include PT video visits, specialists, health coaches, and advanced technology.

Getting started is as easy as:

1: Join hereIt takes about 10 minutes.

2: Receive kit. HH will send everything you need to your doorstep.

3: Start sessions on your schedule. Only have 10 minutes a few times a week? You can still conquer back and joint pain, and reduce pain by nearly 70%.

Don’t wait a moment longer if you’ve been dealing with pain, stiffness, or an injury. You can sign up here or give Hinge Health a call at (855) 902-2777 with any questions. Eligible family members (dependents age 18 and over who are also covered under the IIT plan) can join at no cost too.
