Pain management – VR Therapy

Virtual Reality for Pain management

Attention plays an important role in the perception of painful stimuli. Virtual reality distraction environments can be essential to treat anxiety, chronic pain and emotional pain management. Scientific evidence demonstrates that perceptions of pain can be subdued when attention is diverted towards pleasant stimuli and away from harmful ones.
