Frequently Asked Questions

What types of treatments does Dorsal offer?

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.

Who is Dorsal for?

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.

How much does Dorsal cost?

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).

See pricing details.

Is Dorsal covered by insurance?

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.

How do I use HSA/FSA to cover my Dorsal subscription?

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
