If you're anything like me, music is a big part of your life. It can lift me up, it can wipe me out, but it's always there. And you'll likely also have seen incredible videos which show people with Dementia or Alzheimer's responding to music when they otherwise are non-responsive.
But did you ever think that music could make a difference to the health of people with MS?
Dr. Cindybet Pérez is a board-certified clinical and neurological music therapist practicing in Puerto Rico. A faculty member at the Pontifical Catholic University, she also participated in a national-level project specially designed to promote health and wellness through evidence-based interventions for MS patients called MS in Harmony.
In our fascinating conversation, Dr. Cindybet talks about how music therapy can help MS patients cope with their diagnosis, becoming another potential weapon in our arsenal - not simply lifting our mood but improving our movement and memory!
