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.
If you suffer from chronic or acute back pain – and you want to receive comprehensive, expert treatment from the comfort of home – then Dorsal is for you. Learn about the top reasons patients choose Dorsal.
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 $99 (with a special $45 first month promo 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.
You may use your insurance benefits to cover the cost of any prescribed medications. If you choose to do this, the fee to access Dorsal's concierge medical services (e.g. doctor consultations, 24/7 messaging, physical therapy, prescriptions, and refills) is just $45 per month. However, you will be responsible for picking up medications at your local pharmacy and paying any pharmacy copays (which may end up being more expensive). You will also be unable to access Dorsal's monthly prescription delivery service.
To select this option, simply shoot us an email at email@example.com or message your doctor to request a local pharmacy fill instead of fulfillment and delivery by Dorsal. In your note, make sure to provide the name and address of your local pharmacy.
Although you may use insurance to cover medication, concierge medical services on the Dorsal platform are not covered by insurance due to the unique and all-inclusive nature of our care model. But we do accept HSA / FSA, which allows you to save nearly 30% on treatment since the funds are pre-tax dollars. All in all, our membership fee is significantly more affordable than typical insurance copays and covers unlimited specialist consultations, prescription medications (with free delivery), and physical therapy. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
