Orthopedic in-Home Physical Therapist, Per Diem
New Jersey, USA
Posted on Thursday, March 30, 2023
One in two people experience debilitating back, neck, shoulder, or joint pain — but traditional treatments have failed to meet their needs. Physical therapy can be expensive and hard to access; appointments often involve long commutes and missed work. Making matters worse, unresolved pain can trigger the overuse of opioids and surgeries.
Join us in reimagining healthcare from the ground up. We’re making high-quality care accessible by pairing wearable sensors and computer vision with a world-class clinical team. Hinge Health puts a digital clinic in every member's pocket. Now millions of people can access personalized digital care from a physical therapist, guidance on behavior change from a health coach, and expert consultations with an orthopedic surgeon. With a single app and wearable technology like our Enso device, we’re helping to reduce pain, surgeries, and opioid use.
About the Role
Physical therapists are the backbone of the comprehensive clinical care team at Hinge Health. Hinge Health Physical Therapists utilize their clinical expertise and knowledge of pain science to evaluate and treat patients across the MSK spectrum. We believe in providing the best human-centered care by applying the Biopsychosocial model, evidence-informed practice, and innovative technology to help patients reduce their pain and achieve meaningful outcomes. Our physical therapists are on the bleeding edge of delivering MSK care enabled by advanced technology. We are pioneering a hybrid approach through house calls and our digital platform, creating more accessibility and health equity for those in need. Come join us if you are excited to help us define what the future of integrating in-person and digital care looks like!
This is not the traditional home health experience. Think of it as an outpatient clinic evaluation conducted in a patient’s home.

You will work with a diverse set of members within an innovative team of high performing, inclusive clinicians.
