These top 5 songs can help ease chronic pain
According to a new study, listening to music is more than just enjoyable, as it also has some pretty powerful health benefits.
Indeed, the study found that over 40 percent of those polled said that listening to favorite songs actually helped ease physical pain. The study surveyed over 1500 people in Britain who reported suffering from some form of pain most of the time. Lloyds Pharmacy group conducted the study, which was released last Thursday. Among those surveyed between the ages of 16 and 24, two-thirds reported that music helped to diminish their pain.
Andrew Mawhinney, a pharmacist and pain expert with Lloyds Pharmacy pointed out that there are many ways to alleviate pain. In addition to drugs, he noted that simple changes, such as incorporating regular exercise and stress management techniques into your lifestyle, can also help you better manage your pain.
