Washington: Music may be useful as a complementary treatment for people with cancer as it eases their disease-related anxiety.Researchers analysed evidence from 1,891 patients taking part in 30 trials. Thirteen trials used trained music therapists, while in the remaining 17 trials, patients listened to pre-recorded music. The results showed that compared to standard treatments, music reduced anxiety considerably based on clinical anxiety scores. "The evidence suggests that music interventions may be useful as a complementary treatment to people with cancer," said Joke Bradt, researcher in Creative Arts Therapies at Drexel University, Philadelphia who led the study.
