Media Alert – Investment Announcement!

December 12th, 2021 – Birmingham, Michigan – CitySide Ventures and Birmingham announce adding UpSwing Health to its portfolio of companies.

Launched in January of 2021, this innovative platform provides immediate access and immediate answers.  Don’t wait to see a doctor to find out what’s wrong and how serious it is.

Upswing Health’s free assessment tool can help you understand your muscle or joint pain and even provide free physical therapist-designed exercises directed by your own Health Coach you can do at home. And if your injury is more severe, you’ll get immediate access to an orthopedic physician who can provide you with treatment by phone or video call. If needed, they’ll even schedule an appointment with the right in-network specialist for your injury.


No waiting for a doctor’s appointment, sitting in waiting rooms or leaving work for multiple visits just to get a referral; just immediate answers and access to the care you need right now.

“The majority of injuries are musculoskeletal in nature and the US currently spends over 200 billion dollars annually to treat acute and chronic orthopedic conditions. Up to 40% of patients are initially misdiagnosed or incorrectly treated and over 50% of patients continue to experience symptoms after treatment. Upswing is already seeing rapid adoption in their entry markets and we are pleased to provide capital to help them roll this out nationally ”  – David Weaver – Chief Investment Officer at CitySide Ventures.   

CitySide Ventures and Birmingham Angels’ goal is to become a premier Investment group committed to taking Michigan Angel investing to a new level by building a network of active, progressive, and innovative investors committed to turning Michigan into a powerhouse startup ecosystem.
