Perscription for Pain: Music Time!

I am so excited to come across this article! I definitely think that music can help decrease pain. Not only does it help distract you, but it can also influence your emotions, which can help you produce more endorphins and decrease the pain. And music can help you feel less anxious and more relaxed, which can help the pain decrease as well. This article talks about a study that was done to see the effects of music on pain in pediatric surgery patients. I think it would be awesome if more studies were done on this subject! I would definitely recommend everyone read this article! You can find it here.
