ABOUT AXON THERAPY Axon Therapy delivers focused magnetic pulses which activate the damaged peripheral nerve axons that are required to provide relief from chronic nerve pain. The Axon Therapy coil, connected to a compact stimulation module, produces strong magnetic pulses near the injured nerve during the course of the treatment. NeuraLace's patented low frequency waveform leverages the principles of electromagnetic induction to create a voltage differential that elicits neuronal stimulation in the axon of the damaged nerve resulting in pain relief. Current forms of neuromodulation focus on masking the transmission of pain signals, whereas Axon Therapy seeks to suppress the pain signal by re-activating the body's natural modulatory mechanism, which is dormant after traumatic injury to the nerve.

Our mission to end chronic pain inspired us to develop Axon Therapy, with the goal of being the first non-invasive, non-addictive way to effectively treat chronic nerve pain.
