Our mission is to empower millions of people around the world to live their healthiest lives

We are the market leader in digital-first musculoskeletal care across the globe, with over 560,000 participants to-date. But our goal goes far beyond that: we strive to make effective therapy accessible to millions of people around the world to help them live life to the fullest.

The story

Kaia was born when founders, Konstantin Mehl and Manuel Thurner, came together on their mission to find a more effective way to manage chronic back pain. After years of personal struggle with pain, the founder duo discovered the solution: multimodal therapy, the gold standard for pain management based on a combination of physical exercise and mind-body support. The challenge was that the cost – both time and money – made this therapy virtually inaccessible to just about everyone.

And so enter Kaia: a digital version of multimodal therapy that can be accessed by anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Officially launched in 2016, Kaia Health is headquartered in Munich, Germany and New York City.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Kaia today

Today, Kaia offers digital programs to help people with back, joint and chronic pain, as well as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Our platform has grown over the years to support large populations of members dealing with pain and also those seeking a preventative measure to live a pain-free life.

Primarily in the US and in Europe but ever expanding, these populations range from enterprise companies to preeminent health plans and health systems.

The vision

Kaia delivers the most effective digital therapies – anytime, anywhere – by creating highly engaging clinical experiences powered by technology and guided by human expertise. We envision a not-too-distant day when all people with a chronic condition are able to expand their care continuum with our market leading, digital-first solutions.
