Background: Pain is an unpleasant sensory experience resulted from tissue damage. Due to the side effects of analgesic medicines; the study was conducted to investigate the influence of music on severity of pain.
Materials and Methods: this experimental study was carried out on 24 adult male rats divided into a control group and two case groups. In the control group, formalin 2.5% injected into the right sole paw and experimental groups were affected to the Adagio calm and Allergo music from 20 minutes prior of formalin injection to the end of the experiment and based on formula of pain scores. Severity of pain was measured every 5 minutes over one hour. Data were analyzed by means of spss.18 and statistical ANOVA and Tukey tests were used.
Results: findings indicated that Adagio calm music can significantly reduce the acute (P≥ 0.05)and chronic pain(P≥ 0.001), and also allergo music led to a decrease in chronic pain (P≥ 0.001).
Conclusions: this is highly likely that music relieve pain through neural pathways, dopaminergic and opioidergic systems of the brain.
