Chronic pain

We have developed a personalized and standardized non-pharmacological treatment for pain, based on the principles of neuro-feedback.

A clinically proven medical treatment that reduces pain by up to 52%.

Chronic pain is a major health problem with significant emotional and social repercussions. The treatment of pain is based on comprehensive care, both physical and psychological. It is now proven that a combination of drug therapies with non-pharmacological methods can enhance the effectiveness of pain treatment.
At present, the international literature clearly describes the neurophysiological actions and potential applications of using music for therapeutic purposes in order to manage acute and chronic pain. The impact of music on the localization and intensity of dopaminergic activity has been demonstrated using neuro-imaging techniques.
Among our randomized controlled clinical studies, one study showed that 2 sessions per day for 2 months reduced the level of pain by up to 52% and reduced the consumption of both anxiolytics and antidepressants in more than 50% of patients in the MUSIC CARE© group. This effect was sustained for up to a month after the sessions stopped. MUSIC CARE© is simple to implement and effectively relieves pain.
