Karuna is an early-stage venture-backed digital therapeutics company. Karuna Labs builds immersive virtual reality technology designed to treat chronic pain by retraining the brain. Karuna’s evidence-based approach to chronic pain leverages physical therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, and cognitive neuroscience to treat neuropathic pain conditions by resolving sensory motor incongruences and helping patients to overcome fear-avoidant behavior.
