Why Surgeons Listen To Music In The Operating Room -- And How It Could Help You

This study and other research suggests that this positive effect may be maintained after surgery, the Wales surgeons note. A growing body of research has also suggested that music's healing properties extend to pain relief. A 2012 study from the Pain Research Center at the University of Utah found that participants who actively focused on various melodies while receiving mildly painful electric shocks reduced pain levels by 17 percent. Research conducted in Singapore also found that palliative care patients who participated in live music therapy reported relief from persistent pain. "Active music engagement allowed the patients to reconnect with the healthy parts of themselves, even in the face of a debilitating condition or disease-related suffering," the study's co-author, music therapist Melanie Kwan of the Association for Music Therapy, Singapore, told the American Psychological Association. "When their acute pain symptoms were relieved, patients were finally able to rest."
