Virtual reality, unlike traditional 2D media, has the ability to take the user into a whole new world. The user, while immersed in virtual reality, almost forgets that he is wearing a headset as the virtual world seems to be like a real one. This immersive factor of VR has many practical uses outside of entertainment, we talked about using VR to deal with a phobia of airplanes in a previous article. Virtual reality is so effective at immersing people that some hospitals are using VR to treat pain.

The great thing about VR treatment is that unlike treatment through drugs, patients cannot build up a tolerance to virtual reality. Hospitals clearly should continue with chemical pain treatment as VR isn't a magic pill that cures everything. Nevertheless hospitals could get away with a lower dosage if the patient is immersed in virtual reality. With lower doses come less side effects, less chance of addiction, and at the same time less costs. 

The virtual reality
race is on.
