Our history

Joint Academy was founded in 2014 by Leif and Jakob Dahlberg to solve the problem of many osteoarthritis patients being treated with high-risk and expensive measures, at the same time as access to care was limited. By translating a clinically-proven face-to-face treatment program to a digital platform, with focus on exercise and education alongside support from a licensed physical therapist, the quality of life for patients increased, while cutting cost.

A sustainable solution

Today more than 70,000 patients have treated their chronic joint pain with Joint Academy together with our 300+ licensed physical therapists. The demand for digital care is growing and we make sure patients have access to the right treatment at the right time. With the Joint Academy app treatment is available wherever whenever, without waiting.

Future proof

Chronic joint pain cases are increasing around the world. We’re continuously developing our platform to keep helping patients, and the healthcare system, as well as cutting costs. All while helping even more people to reduce their joint pain and improve quality of life.

10+ peer-reviewed published studies
