Studies show that adherence to conventional PT programs is low. In a large study, involving 38,260 Medicare beneficiaries treated for low back pain, almost 50% of patients dropped out after 4 sessions.2 Other studies estimate non-adherence to PT programs can be as high as 65-70%3,4. In addition to this, non-compliance to home-based exercises is particularly worrisome.5

The highest engagement

Sword has the highest rate of patient engagement. This means patients sign up and complete our program, leading them to longer-lasting success.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

We strive to over-deliver for our clients.

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.
