Music therapy helps stroke victims

Listening to music and playing musical instruments helps post-stroke patients in the post-rehabilitation period, scientists at Ruskin University of England and post-stroke rehabilitation doctors at Addenbrook Cambridge Hospital in the UK concluded. Musical therapy not only restored the patients' brains, but also made them happier.

Within two years, 177 patients who had suffered a stroke underwent a course of musical therapy. They played musical instruments (synthesizer, drum set and other drums) and performed special musical exercises on the tablet to restore coordination of movements, fine motor skills, agility and intelligence.

Music therapy was an addition to the standard stroke rehabilitation program, which included speech therapy, physical therapy, massage, psychotherapy, etc.

At the end of the course patients were polled, which revealed that musical therapy was very useful: they had an increased mood, improved health, increased energy and enthusiasm, there was interest in life - people began to feel much happier, which was very important for the recovery process after stroke.
