virtual reality pain management

CLUB RECHARGE prides ourselves in being Cleveland's most innovative wellness club by staying far ahead of our competitors.  We are finishing the development of our Virtual Reality Pain Management system that hijacks the brain for people with chronic pain to temporally disconnect the brain's pain senses.  Set to release in the summer of 2021 we want to be the first to release this form of therapy. 

COMING MARCH 2021

VIRTUAL REALITY PAIN MANAGEMENT

Virtual reality (VR) has been used to manage pain and distress associated with a wide variety of known painful medical procedures.

 

In clinical settings and experimental studies, participants immersed in Virtual Reality experience reduced levels of pain, general distress/unpleasantness and report a desire to use Virtual Reality again during painful medical procedures.

Investigators hypothesize that Virtual Reality acts as a nonpharmacologic form of analgesia by exerting an array of emotional affective, emotion-based cognitive and attentional processes on the body’s intricate pain modulation system.

 

While the exact neurobiological mechanisms behind Virtual Realitie's action remain unclear, investigations are currently underway to examine the complex interplay of cortical activity associated with immersive VR.

 

Recently, new applications, including VR, have been developed to augment evidenced-based interventions, such as hypnosis and biofeedback, for the treatment of chronic pain.

 

This article provides a comprehensive review of the literature, exploring clinical and experimental applications of VR for acute and chronic pain management, focusing specifically on current trends and recent developments.

 

In addition, we propose mechanistic theories highlighting VR distraction and neurobiological explanations, and conclude with new directions in VR research, implications and clinical significance.
