There was an article in yesterday’s health supplement of the Irish Times on the amount spent on chronic pain in Ireland. The article can be accessed at: http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/health/2011/0215/1224289816897.html. With one in three Irish people suffering from chronic pain, there is a clear need to find effective ways of managing this. Internationally, there is a growing trend towards incorporating therapies such as music therapy into the treatments being offered to these patients. Some links below highlight the benefits of music therapy for people living with chronic pain.
