Privately held NeuraLace Medical, Inc., headquartered in San Diego, Calif., is committed to leading the charge in non-invasive chronic pain management and sustainable relief.

Axon Therapy is a new non-drug pain management treatment that is FDA-cleared (via 510(k) approval in 2021) to treat chronic nerve pain — such as the recurring pain experienced after a limb loss, motor vehicle accident, severe fall, sports injury, localized burn or certain invasive surgical procedures.
