Serious back pain can be debilitating, and relief is often elusive. Kaia is the first medical exercise therapy app to help you find at-home solutions to both chronic and acute conditions. It creates an individualized plan to help you manage your discomfort on your own timetable.
Based on multimodal pain therapy, which acknowledges that back pain is often caused by both physical and mental factors, Kaia incorporates relaxation and learning alongside exercise. The app begins by asking what you’re looking fodr: pain reduction, improved flexibility, coping techniques, or greater spine stability. Kaia then takes you through sessions designed to target your specific needs.
The sessions include categories like movement, relaxation, and knowledge, which educates you on different type of back pain and the healing process. Designed to slip seamlessly into your daily routine, each session can be completed in under 30 minutes and requires little to no equipment.
While demo videos show you how to perform the exercises safely and effectively, Kaia’s artificial-intelligence-powered motion coach provides additional feedback. Using body-tracking technology, this feature analyzes your movements with your iPhone’s camera and suggests ways to improve your technique. And the app’s algorithms evolve and refine the exercises to continue challenging you and targeting your pain as you progress.
Perhaps most important, Kaia also melts away the isolation that comes from back pain, bringing you into a community that reminds you you’re not alone.
