Study finds music therapy helps stroke patients recover

A new study from the University of Agniesus in the UK found that music therapy had a positive effect on the neuropathic recovery of patients with acute stroke and their mood. Stroke, commonly known as stroke, has become the second leading cause of death and the third leading cause of disability in the world. Neuropathic music therapy (NMT) improves function by regulating mood, increasing attention, and promoting brain changes, or may help stroke patients recover.

Study finds music therapy helps stroke patients recover

The study, led by Dr. Alex Street of Rosekin University in Anglia, was the first large-scale study of the field, with a total of 177 patients taking 675 neuropathic music therapies over a two-year period.

At the heart of neuropathic music therapy is through a lot of repetitive exercises, using an iPad with a touch screen instrument, to help patients recover their hands by improving finger dexterity and cognitive training.

At the same time, neuropathic music therapy is carried out in parallel with existing stroke rehabilitation therapy, including physiotherapy, speech therapy and clinical psychology.

A subsequent questionnaire of 139 patients, family members and hospital staff showed that neuropathy music therapy was generally helpful. Among the 52 patients who completed the emotional scale questionnaire, there was a significant increase in the number of “sad” and “happy” responses.

Speech therapists say neuropathic music therapy has a positive effect on patients’ wake-up and participation, which may help patients overcome depression and fatigue that are common after a stroke and contribute to their recovery.

The researchers say neuropathic music therapy has a positive impact on stroke patients and is warmly welcomed by patients, their relatives and staff. We therefore propose to fund the NHS and set up a permanent neuropathic music therapy position in the stroke ward.
