Music therapy and stroke rehabilitation


Stroke rehabilitation through music therapy

Melodic intonation therapy

This article highlights the benefits of music therapy in stroke rehabilitation. I have observed neurologic music therapy to be effective in rehabilitation after a stroke. Neurologic music therapy is effective in increasing expressive language, improving gait, and improving motor planning skills after suffering a stroke. In my practice I have found the use of melodic intonation therapy combined with therapeutic singing to be extremely effective for increasing speech in clients with non-fluent aphasia and apraxia. The second article featured here gives an in depth look at melodic intonation therapy.
