Virtual Reality for pain and mental issues

Virtual Reality is an excellent tool to use for chronic pain or various mental health issues. For which issues can Corpus VR provide a solution?

More and more people are experiencing stress. Stress is caused by pain and anxiety. Ultimately, stress also hinders daily life movement or causes various pain complaints. By alleviating pain and anxiety, these issues can also be prevented. The use of virtual reality helps patients relax, reducing tension-related symptoms. Therefore, virtual reality can be employed in somatic therapy, chronic pain, burnout, trauma, stress, or other mental health issues.

How does VR work for mental issues, pain and stress?

Attention and pain are interconnected. Focusing on the pain only intensifies it. The same applies to anxiety. VR can be used as an active distraction tool and aids in relaxation. Consider VR environments that include guided meditation, mindfulness training, and breathing exercises, among others.
