Virtual Reality

Tired of pain getting in your way? A new approach to pain is here. 

Do you feel like you’ve tried everything to reduce your pain? The newest weapon in the fight against persistent pain is virtual reality (VR) technology integrated into physical therapy.

RET Physical Therapy is the first in the U.S. to use a groundbreaking new VR platform to improve results and experience with persistent pain. Not only does using a virtual reality headset as part of an integrated
PT therapy session provide a visual and engaging experience, this new VR technology also helps you learn and retain new research about chronic pain and how to deal with it. We can begin to alleviate persistent pain and safely return you to your favorite activities without the need for opioids or surgery.

How does virtual reality work?

Using a VR headset as part of your physical therapy session, RET works with you to gain the upper hand on chronic pain. And since VR technology is convenient, comfortable, and engaging, we can create a visual experience that provides immediate pain relief and gives you more control over your life.

How is virtual reality different?

RET’s VR program makes learning and practicing new skills more fun and effective, improves consistency of your pain education, and promotes better retention over traditional methods of reducing chronic, persistent pain.

A VR program like ours, one that combines cutting-edge technology and hands-on, evidence-based physical therapy, is not being practiced anywhere else. Our physical therapists have been through specific training and certifications in Pain Neuroscience Education to provide this service.

Here’s what some of our patients had to say...

I started PT after a car accident. The staff was extremely helpful not just with injuries from the accident, but also other issues that had been bothering me. They are very good at communicating problems and solutions and are friendly to boot. Can’t recommend enough.

Attentive, responsive, pleasant in communication, knowledgeable staff. I got good results in a short time. Thankful to Dr. Andrew for useful information and for a program of exercises.

Doug Free, the manager at Mercer Island Physical Therapy, has a PhD in PT, and is an amazing diagnostic doctor who explains why a specific injury occurred. He also does fabulous work on your body. His entire staff is knowledgeable and excellent therapists. 

five stars Gary RET Patient

I saw Anne at 7 weeks post ulnar nerve transposition. I’ve made more progress in 1 week with her than I did in those first 7.  She is extremely knowledgeable and up to date on current research.  I’d feel very good about sending my family and friends her way!

five stars Holli RET Patient

Kelly is amazing! I felt very comfortable and she asked all of the right questions, was super friendly, and knows exactly how to help. I always leave feeling so much better, and confident that if I do my exercises, I will heal!

five stars Kelsey RET Patient

Michelle has been amazing to work with. She quickly diagnosed the root cause of the issues that continued to plague me after recovering from hip replacement surgery that other PT’s (different companies) could not. She listens, is creative, resourceful, and very knowledgeable. Everyone at the clinic is always very professional and interested in our progress.

five stars Conrac RET Patient

I have been going to Summit Therapy for a shoulder problem. I’ve made steady progress and have gotten much pain relief. The staff is very friendly and great to work with. I recently had a sudden problem of vertigo. My therapist knew exactly what to do and performed a treatment that stopped the dizziness.
