Hello again! How are you guys? How are you dealing with life right now?
We are doing ok! Hanging in there and living one day at a time and understanding that this will be our new normal for a little while, but we are good and healthy and that’s all that matters!
One of the things I’ve started to miss now that the weather is getting nicer is playing tennis. I love it so much, but my back hurts like crazy when I play because of an injury on my lower back. Five years ago I fell while playing and never really fully recovered. That’s why when I heard about Upswing Health, I had to give it a try and I’m so glad I did!
Upswing Health is a web-based service that helps you treat your musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries from the comfort of your home. It’s so convenient these days because they definitely improve your day-to-day life without breaking any shelter-in-place rules!
For minor injuries, Upswing Health provides home exercises with very detailed instructional videos and for more serious injuries, Upswing connects you to a Certified Athletic Trainer who validates those injuries and if necessary, sets up a telehealth visit with a primary care sports medicine physician.
Here’s how it works:
1. Go to https://upswinghealth.com
2. Click on ‘What Hurts” at the top right of the page
3. Connect for FREE with one of their medical professionals
I love that they are providing their services for FREE right now! I followed the steps above and after 24 hours of chatting via text with one of Upswing’s medical professionals, they sent me a personalized recovery plan based on my needs. They simply shared a link with me with a few different exercises for me to do every day to improve my lower back pain.
After just one week, I feel much better and it only takes 15 minutes of my day. I like to do my exercises in the morning before my daily workout. It has helped so much with my physical health, but also mentally, because I take that time to breathe and focus on my movements. It’s the right way to start my day!
I believe they are the next generation of sports medicine. They can provide guidance on all kinds of musculoskeletal injuries: anything from your ankle to your neck. Upswing is helping everyone regardless of their fitness level or age to recover from injuries that might slow them down. If you have a musculoskeletal injury, I cannot recommend them enough! And again, it’s FREE right now.
You can talk to a sports medicine doctor and they have an incredible library of more than 7,000 exercise videos curated by licensed physical therapists. Upswing Health connects you to an advanced AI diagnostic system that helps you to figure out what’s wrong. It really is that simple!
If you’ve been feeling a little stiff or in pain since being sheltered-in-place, or need to treat an old musculoskeletal injury, now is the perfect time to utilize Upswing Health’s easy-to-use online technology to connect to a live medical professional without leaving your home. I promise it makes a HUGE difference and well, you have nothing to lose!

- The certified athletic trainers can give general medical advice but not a diagnosis.
- You will not be speaking with a doctor/athletic trainer until your injury is assessed.
