Music Therapy and MS
Music therapy is music—and so much more…
Music stirs human emotion and spurs changes in our brains that can cause powerful sensations and physical reactions.
Music therapy harnesses the power of music and has been used as part of comprehensive management plans for people living with central nervous system (CNS) diseases like multiple sclerosis (MS) for years.
Research suggests that it may be beneficial in terms of the impact it has on both physical and mental function.
If you’re hearing about music therapy for the first time, you may be wondering where it might fit as you work toward a treatment plan. While only your MS healthcare team can advise you on the management of your disease, educating yourself on interventions like music therapy can give you something to talk about with them the next time you meet.
