Hopkins Hour Event Resources: 'Virtual Reality for Chronic Pain'

Thank you to everyone who joined the virtual Hopkins Hour live event on 23 July 2020 about 'Virtual Reality for Chronic Pain: From low back pain to spinal cord injury-related neuropathic pain'.

Hosted by Therapeutic Interventions and Practices​​ Research Stream and Presented by, Professor Michel Coppiters, Research Stream Leader and Founding Professor of Allied Health Research and Research Fellow, Dr Daniel Harvie from The Hopkins Centre, Menzies Health Institute Queensland.

The research event focused on project progress towards using virtual reality-mediated body illusions to treat persistent pain, stimulate walking in people with paraplegia and treat persistent below lesion pain following spinal cord injury. We also heard from Dr Harvie about how virtually embodying superheros are being used to target perceptions of physical vulnerability in people with chronic low back pain, and how this may promote reductions in pain and increased activity.
