Friends I have written a lot about the bad effects of gaming, namely addiction. But lately Games are helping in alleviating pain. Let me tell you about it. There are certain situation where the patient is in lot of pain. Especially for children it has been found out that involving children in games makes them focus on something other than pain. It has been tried out in a number of hospitals in US and UK.
Pain management has recently acquired great interest of researchers. There are ways by which the pain in various areas of body can be measured.
So it seems that gaming has got some points in the good books of critics. Gaming is a multi billion business in US and any positive developments like these goes a long way into lobbying for its continuation.
