Types of Treatment
The newest weapon in the fight against opioid addiction is virtual reality (VR) technology that can help ease patients’ chronic pain and provide alternatives to popping pills.
Do you feel like you’ve tried every avenue possible to reduce your pain? We hear you. And we’ve got some good news – a new weapon to aid in your fight.
Virtual Reality (VR) is an innovative answer to chronic pain. Our groundbreaking new VR platform, developed in partnership with BehaVR, will provide you with a visually engaging experience designed to help you take control of the pain you’ve been living with for weeks, months, or years.
How Does Virtual Reality Work?
Our VR technology is a convenient, comfortable experience. When you’re wearing the goggles, you’ll be presented with both animation and videos designed to help you better learn, understand, and retain information about pain and its perception. Your physical therapist will integrate VR into one of your regular, activity-based physical therapy sessions, allowing them to guide you through the treatment and continually monitor your progress.
This cutting-edge program is exclusive to Pappas | OPT and unique in our region, and our therapists have been specialty trained and certified in Pain Neuroscience Education and VR technology.

The entire team here makes you feel like family. I can’t believe they completely healed my shoulder. No need for surgery!!! I’ll never go anywhere else for PT. They all stay on the cutting edge of new technology.
I absolutely loved the entire staff! They are all welcoming and caring. They do indeed treat you like family and I couldn’t have asked for a better place. Give Pappas a try, you won’t regret it!
My second time here for therapy, and I think you guys are great. I would definitely refer you all to anybody. Great, friendly and helpful staff.
Great staff and experience! Everyone I have worked with thus far has been extremely professional and welcoming! Dan and his team are flexible and accommodating to ensure their patients get the best care!
This was my first time at Pappas. I have to say it was one of the best doctor/health/clinic experiences I have ever had. I was treated with respect, received a thorough examination and ongoing treatment plan, and was met with a smiling face by every employee.
Pappas Physical and Hand Therapy embodies their mantra of treating you like family. They both took an interest in not only my ankle injury but in me as a person making me feel comfortable and easing all anxieties we face when going through an injury.
My experience was great. The treatment was excellent and it was explained in great detail. My pain and discomfort were eliminated with a diverse exercise program. The whole staff is awesome.
