London – Music therapy can prove beneficial to patients of stroke and other physical and mental illnesses. It can also be used to reduce pain, to keep the mind calm when battling a longstanding illness or to improve concentration according to research done by the Anglia Ruskin University.
1.177 patients were selected for this study. Over a span of two years they participated in 675 music therapy sessions including drums, guitar and other musical instruments.
2. Assistance was taken from experts in physiotherapy, occupational therpy, speech therapy and clinical psychology.
3. The research revealed how this therapy brought about a change in the mental status of patients reducing their depression and increasing their enthusiasm. The researchers therefore infer that music serves as a therapy in treatment of any illness.
