Virtual Reality Physical Therapy - VR Therapy
Do you have back pain? Neck pain? Arm pain? Shoulder pain? Hand pain? Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)?
Looking for an alternative to medication and something less invasive than injections?
Enter VR Therapy…
By making use of the brain’s neuroplasticity, specialized virtual embodiment training programs take a multimodal approach to pain management and rehabilitation.
Training regimens consist of weekly modules that range from pain education and motor imagery training to mindful breathing and movement.
How Does it Work?
Virtual Embodiment Training
VR Therapy employs principles of virtual embodiment and motor imagery to help patients retrain their brains.
Virtual Embodiment TrainingTM (VET) has been developed for pain of the arms, shoulders, legs, low back, and neck.
Detailed tracking on pain-free range of motion, compensations in reach tasks, and pain scale scores are displayed in separate online platforms for patients and providers.
