We don’t take shortcuts
People Over Profit
We take a members-first approach to everything we do, from our PT-to-member ratio to our On-Call clinical support. Our members always feel connected. We use technology and data so that our PTs can enhance each member's program after every session. No automated playlists, blanket programs, or unqualified health coaches. Just real PTs, real people, real progress.
We’ve led the way. As leaders in the digital MSK space, we’ve consistently been the first to create clinical solutions that deliver a better way to treat pain. From our Digital Therapist to our launch of the first digital Pelvic Health solution, we’re just getting started.
We work with evidence. That means that our solutions aren’t simply hunches or following trends — they’re clinically-backed solutions borne out of data and research. We continue to earn the trust of our customers because the data doesn’t lie — our solutions work.
We are the only solution that provides tailored programs to every member, in every session, and on every step of their journey
Movement is medicine, but poor form can dramatically slow — or even reverse — relief. Sword's Digital Therapist uses sensor technology to deliver real-time feedback. All the movement data is then shared with the PT, who adapts the program based on actual performance. Data over guesswork.

Our clients love us so much we’ve never lost one.
We chose Sword over competing solutions because their clinical model and access to Doctors of Physical Therapy is unique and more effective for our team members. It was incredibly easy to change our MSK care to Sword. The Sword integration with our medical carrier has been seamless and their team has been very proactive in the communication plan to drive awareness and enrollment for the program.Matt DupreyBenefits Manager, Dominos
