Reducing opioid use during PRM care with virtual reality

During rehabilitation, pain management is a major challenge for patients and healthcare professionals. Opioids, drugs that act on the areas of the brain responsible for pain control, are often prescribed in PRM care to help control pain. However, their excessive use can lead to undesirable side effects or addiction. Thus, virtual reality is emerging as an innovative solution to help reduce the use of opioids in adults suffering from chronic and acute pain.
