Take your injury recovery to the next level

Living with chronic pain can be difficult, especially when previous treatments have not always been effective.

APM WorkCare’s VR empowered pain recovery program combines the modern neuroscience of pain and the biology of recovery to create a personalised treatment plan for people with chronic pain.

Developed in conjunction with Australia’s leading pain science researchers and clinicians, we’ve built a program that allows injured persons to explore the causes of their pain and how best to relieve it.

Our program enables access to

Evidence-based, proven and effective pain recovery techniques

Safe and non-invasive activities and education


A simple to use and clearly demonstrated program

An opportunity to get hands-on in their own recovery

How it works

Encouraging the mind to think differently about pain.

  1. A specially trained APM WorkCare clinician will attend the participants home to deliver the service weekly over six weeks.
  2. Each session is approximately one hour with intermittent use of the VR headset throughout. The VR activities can be completed while sitting or standing.
  3. During each session the participant and clinician will review the program and how the intervention suits their health and recovery goals.
  4. A pre and post-assessment will be completed to review outcomes, progress towards goals and provide planning for the future.

Recovery and reassurance

Education modules

Provides participants with a deeper understanding of their pain and the principles of neuroplasticity. This is combined with psychosocial risk management and education.

Movement modules

Participants receive neuroscience techniques to optimise graded movement and loading.

Neurological modules

The module retrains how a participant thinks about pain by altering sensory inputs during movement and loading, to create and consolidate neural pathways that can lead to less pain.

These modules are consistent with a management approach that has been clinically proven to improve pain and disability outcomes, and the likelihood of full recovery, in people with chronic pain.


What is virtual reality?

Virtual reality is the use of computer technology to create simulated environments. It uses a headset that slips over your head and eyes, and controllers for your hands to interact with the environment.
