Pain recovery is possible. It starts with the right diagnosis.

A new diagnosis for chronic pain explains why so many treatments don’t work. Lin provides cutting-edge diagnosis and care to reverse chronic pain.

Game-Changing Diagnostics

Primary pain is a new diagnostic category that includes many common types of chronic pain.

If you have chronic back pain or spasms, frozen shoulder, chronic tendonitis, repetitive strain injury, vulvodynia, fibromyalgia, migraines, irritable bowel, CRPS, POTS, TMJ, persistent neck pain, interstitial cystitis, it is possible that you do not have the full diagnostic picture. 

If you meet the criteria for chronic primary pain, it may explain why other treatments have not been enough to resolve your pain. There’s good news; with proper help, primary pain can be reversed.

I've never done a telehealth consult before - what does that involve?

A telehealth visit is like a house call with your doctor - just from your computer or phone. A telehealth visit has all the same benefits and features as an in-person meeting. All you need is a reliable internet connection, a phone, smartphone, or computer.

plusminus

How is Lin different from everything else out there?

Most people struggle to get out of chronic pain because:

  • They don’t have access to the most current, evidence-based treatments
  • They don’t have the support they need
  • They don’t have a plan to move forward                                      

Lin’s pain recovery program is a step-by-step journey that incorporates neuroscience education and behavioral health therapies specific to pain recovery. Additionally, we offer a 1:1 consult with a  Lin medical professional who knows the world of brain-first treatment in and out! We provide one-on-one coaching with live meetings and unlimited messaging to help support you as you work the program and make adjustments as needed.                            

Do you know of any other online program that does all that?

plusminus

Is Lin covered by health insurance?

We do accept FSA/HSA payments, but we are not covered by insurance at the moment. We hope to see the day when health insurance providers can customize their offerings based on your specific health needs, like supporting a private coach, coordinating all the different pieces of your care plan under one roof, and taking responsibility for tracking your progress.  Until then, the good news is, with Lin, you’ll get the exact pain management solutions you need, not just the services that your insurance benefits cover.

plusminus

Where can I access Lin?

At this time, our services are only available in the US. But, we are working on expanding beyond. In the meantime, US residents can access Lin online 24/7.

Feel free to message our team or email customerservice@lin.health.

plusminus

What kind of training do Lin pain recovery coaches have?

Lin pain recovery coaches each have different training backgrounds—including physical therapy, psychology, public health, education, and nutrition—and therefore have several different certifications and qualifications. Regardless of your coach’s prior experience, all Lin pain recovery coaches complete a rigorous training program to receive their Lin Coaching Certification before working with our members.

Additionally, our coaches meet weekly in small consultation groups with our clinical staff. This means that behind every Lin coach is the shared wisdom of a panel of doctors, physical therapists, and psychologists with deep expertise in pain science and treatment and decades of experience.
