Dorsal offers 15 different FDA-approved prescription medications (such as muscle relaxers, steroid dose packs, topical and oral NSAIDs, anticonvulsants, SNRIs, and TCAs), personalized 10-week physical therapy regimens, and evidence-based behavioral coaching. Every case of back pain is different, so all our treatment programs include a comprehensive consultation with a US-licensed, board-certified physician. Learn more about our care offering.

Our concierge medical services and personalized treatment plans can help you address conditions such as sciatica/radiculopathy, spasms, bulging/herniated discs, and injuries. Whether you're taking the first step or resuming care, we're by your side.
Appointments with back specialists, pain management doctors, and physiatrists (i.e. physical medicine and rehab doctors) are extremely expensive. $400+/hr.
With Dorsal, you get a whole month's worth of all-inclusive, concierge medical care for just $59 (with a special 14-day free trial for new patients). Our flat fee covers a comprehensive doctor consultation, multiple prescriptions, medication delivery, physical therapy from the comfort of home, follow-up care, and unlimited dialogue with our care team and medical providers. Your medication costs (with convenient refills) are included as well.
During your comprehensive consultation and diagnosis, you'll only get matched to board-certified MDs with extensive backgrounds in musculoskeletal medicine. No physician assistants or nurse practitioners. You may cancel or switch treatment plans at any time by dropping us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are no surprises, hidden fees, or long-term commitments. See pricing details.
Dorsal's healthcare services – i.e. specialist consultations, prescription medications (with free delivery), and physical therapy – are not covered by insurance because we set cash pay prices that are more affordable than your usual insurance copays. However, we do accept HSA / FSA which allows you to save nearly 30% on treatment since the funds are pre-tax dollars. See pricing details.
By using HSA/FSA funds (which are pre-tax dollars), you can save nearly 30%. There are two ways in which you may use HSA/FSA to pay for your Dorsal membership:
1) If you have your HSA/FSA connected to a card, you may enter that card information as your payment method on file.
2) If you need to submit a receipt for reimbursement, you may request an itemized receipt by emailing us at email@example.com.
