Music could be new treatment for chronically ill

Listening to music may be a new treatment option for chronically ill patients.

Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic analyzed over 200 hospitalized patients' reactions to music.

Tests were conducted before and after 25 minute music sessions.

Researchers found nearly 80 percent of the patients said their mood improved, and some saw improvement in pain, anxiety and shortness of breath.
