A program called Insight recently aired on Australian TV and this weeks' subject was "The placebo effect".

At 43 min 30 sec into the program, mention is made of a woman with whiplash injury who used an Oculus Rift to rehabilitate her neck problem.

Placebo - Is everything just in our mind? Insight asks how strong is the placebo effect, and how can we best utilise it? Australian current affairs forum hosted by award-winning journalist Jenny Brockie. (An SBS Production) CC

Interestingly, the placebo effect can be used to reduce symptoms of nausea.

It is known that virtual reality experiences can cause nausea.

The $64 question is whether virtual reality training can suppress the nausea caused by using virtual reality headsets.
