UAB Presents

Pain, a feeling everyone tries to avoid, may come from disease, injury, retrogression, medical treatment and other sources. Even so, pain is necessary to let us know when there is a problem in our body. Our strategy for coping with pain is not to eliminate it completely, but rather to relieve it and have it under control when necessary. This is what we call pain management. Through history we have developed various means of pain management, e.g. chemical pharmacy, physical therapies and acupuncture. Virtual reality is one of the latest inventions in this field. Virtual reality (VR) is a technology that exploits the latest advancements in computer science, to fabricate a virtual world for its users. Many researchers believe that VR shows promise in pain management mainly because it can be an effective distracter. While it cannot cure a disease or physical disorder, abundant evidence has been collected showing its superiority in relieving pain and other kinds of discomfort caused by disease or the treatment procedures. Join UAB researchers and doctors as they explore this phenomenon.
