Listening to your favorite tunes before, during and after surgery can significantly lower anxiety and pain, and decrease the need for pain medicine. It can also help people recover faster – and that’s true even if the patient is under anesthesia during surgery. The music still registers in their subconscious. That’s according to a new review of more than 70 different music research studies. And researchers from Brunel University put it this way: Music is a non-invasive, safe, cheap therapy that should be available to everyone undergoing surgery.
