Music helps to cope with pain, say experts from Brunel University and London's Queen Mary University. They analyzed the condition 7000 patients who underwent surgery. Of the volunteers in the postoperative period received only painkillers, along with other drugs were listening to music, writes The Daily Mail. The intensity of pain was measured on a 10-point scale.
The difference between the sensations of pain in both groups was approximately 2 points. Interestingly, patients who listened to music required smaller doses of analgesics and their psychological health was found to be significantly better than people treated exclusively with medication.
Best health outcomes recorded in patients, who themselves were allowed to choose the music. While listening to the songs the human brain emits endorphins. This group of substances has analgesic effect and improves mood. Scientists believe that all the matter in them.
