New services to prevent and treat physical pain and injury arrive on Wellvolution

Blue Shield’s digital health platform Wellvolution features lifestyle medicine programs for the body and mind. Now, three musculoskeletal (MSK) health programs are available to help members treat – and prevent – physical pain and injury.

Musculoskeletal health is the number one cause of workplace disability. A MSK health need is typically pain or injury to bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, or tendons. Common conditions include pain in the lower back or neck, carpal tunnel, and arthritis.

The MSK programs, listed below, are drug-free methods of addressing pain throughout the body with a variety of methods and solutions.


  • Members are matched with a licensed Physical Therapist to create a tailored, on-going program.
  • A wearable, FDA-listed device creates feedback for measurements like positioning and posture.
  • A team of Physical Health Specialists are available 24/7 for text-based care.


  • An evidence-based program to help treat and manage pain
  • Unlimited one-on-one guidance from a board-certified Health Coach by phone or in-app chat.


  • An app-based fitness program through video-guided stretching, strength, cardio, yoga, barre, and Pilates workouts – whether or not the person has a MSK issue.
  • Workouts can be customized around injuries or specific needs, with special equipment required.
