Inessa Lurye is the Senior Director of Consumer Product at Hinge Health, a digital musculoskeletal clinic with accessible digital physical therapy and whole-body care. Recently, Hinge has launched a Women's Pelvic Health program to personalize treatments for pelvic floor disorder and to expand access to pelvic floor physical therapy for underserved communities.

Inessa explains, "We span that entire continuum, and we offer individuals access to a personalized care team, which is in-house physical therapists and Board-certified coaches, and a digital product that includes exercise therapy and education to help free people from pain."

"We have personalized the experience to women and those with vaginal anatomy. One in four women has a pelvic floor disorder, and pelvic health is musculoskeletal health, but for so long, we haven't treated it as such. And so what we've done is, knowing that our clinic is a digital clinic that serves the whole person, we have personalized the experience for pelvic floor disorders."

"So instead of saying this is the way it is, this is so common, let's just make it normal. What we've done at Hinge Health is we've created a program that integrates pelvic healthcare into our digital clinic. It is a program that is created for women by women, and it allows women, those with vaginal anatomy, to enter the offering, to tell us what their needs are, and to get a customized experience for pelvic disorders in a holistic way."
