What Is Virtual Reality Rehabilitation?

Am I a Good Candidate for Virtual Reality Rehabilitation?
If you require rehab from an injury or chronic pain, you may be a candidate for VR rehabilitation. This is an exciting new technology that puts a modern spin on traditional forms of physical and occupational therapy. It may be an especially desirable option if you currently find “analog” rehab therapies unfulfilling and are having trouble making progress with standard techniques alone. This type of rehab may not be the best option for your condition if you don’t want to wear a virtual reality headset, don't want a gamified experience, or feel that this technology might be overstimulating.
How Does VR Rehabilitation Work?
If you're unfamiliar with the recent advancements in virtual reality in the gaming world, VR rehabilitation works in very much the same way. The platform includes a headset that goes over your eyes, hand controllers, a tablet computer, and for some treatment programs, a supportive stand. You wear the headset and take up one controller or both, and through the headset, you're immersed in a virtual environment. In the virtual landscape, you will be given a set of tasks or games to play that will engage your body with a different set of motions. You may be a mighty bird soaring through the sky or popping balloons with a sword, but you're always engaging in effective physical therapy and rehabilitation. VR rehabilitation can treat:
- Upper extremities (arms, hands)
- Lower extremities (legs, feet)
- Core strength and control
Often, when used alone or paired with traditional rehabilitation, virtual reality rehabilitation can dramatically improve results. Your biofeedback and progress are monitored and tracked in real time to measure results.
VR physical therapy not only helps you stay interested and engaged; it allows you to do it in the comfort of your home. It also connects you with a licensed doctor of chiropractic medicine from anywhere on the planet for live 1-on-1 sessions via telerehabilitation. Each treatment session is custom-tailored for your specific needs to retrain neural pathways, increase function and mobility, increase neuroplasticity, reduce pain, and more.
