By partnering with MedRhythms, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network is now offering its Neurologic Music Therapy (NMT) program on an outpatient basis.

Spaulding was reportedly one of the first providers in the country to offer a full-time inpatient NMT program, according to a media release.

“After seeing the overwhelmingly positive results for our inpatient population,s we knew this was a service that could meet a real need for those continuing rehabilitation months and years out from their injury,” explains Rob Welch, senior vice president of outpatient services at Spaulding Rehabilitation Network.

“It’s exciting to partner with MedRhythms and give the patients we serve a new way to improve their lives,” he adds.

NMT differs from traditional music therapy in that it views music not through a social science model for well-being, but through a neuroscience lens, where music is a hard-wired brain language. Treatment techniques are based on the scientific knowledge of music perception and production and the effects thereof nonmusical brain and behavior functions, the release explains.
