We've been there.
We're on a mission.

Developed by three former chronic pain patients who were stuck in the medical merry-go-round for years. We're on a mission to help others suffer less unnecessarily

Our Story

Arun was an active 25 year old. One evening, after a friendly basketball game, he found himself in excruciating lower back and sciatica pain. The doctors took an MRI and diagnosed him with Degenerative Disc Disease. For three years, he was unable to do most activities, and even stand for more than a few minutes. His life took a 180 degree turn.

His best friend Kartik also began suffering from chronic abdominal pain and was diagnosed with IBS. The doctors said that there was no cure, and he lost 40 lbs. 

Thankfully, they both discovered modern pain neuroscience. After full recoveries - they met Dr. Les Aria - a pain psychologist expert of 20 years. Together they founded Menda to help others get answers, and regain their life from chronic pain.
