Efficacy of the HealthJoy Digital Care Program in Improving Chronic LBP

Study Participants Self-Reported Nearly 20% Greater Pain Improvement Compared to Other Digital Care Programs

Low back pain (LBP) is the leading cause of global disability, affecting an astonishing 80% of individuals at some point in their lives. According to the World Health Organization, LBP affects 619 million people globally and "it's estimated that the number of cases will increase to 843 million cases by 2050."

A Closer Look at LBP
  • 2nd most common cause for a doctor’s visit
  • 3rd leading diagnosis resulting in surgical intervention
  • Medical interventions for LBP account for $87.6 billion in US spending
  • 90% of episodes are classified as non-specific — a result that shows how difficult it is to identify the underlying causes of LBP

After years of delivering impactful outcomes for HealthJoy clients with chronic pain, our MSK Therapy team sought out an independent analysis to validate the program’s true impact. The results showed that HealthJoy's unique approach to exercise therapy — targeting the connection between the brain and muscles — produces pain reduction outcomes that far exceed industry standards.


"The median self-reported improvement in pain by eight weeks was 80%, suggesting that HealthJoy users are achieving faster improvements in pain than is typical for digital care programs."
— Corey Rovzar, PhD, DPT, postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University

Impact Beyond Pain Relief
  • 57% average reduction in depression after eight weeks
  • 60% increase in work productivity after eight weeks
  • 96% likelihood of recommending the program (NPS of 88)
