PEDIATRIC PAIN MANAGEMENT

Real Solutions for Children

Pediatric pain continues to be the most undertreated pain in our nation. Under treated pain can cause higher stress levels, which slows healing time and depresses immune function, leading to an increase in morbidity and mortality of medical procedures. It can also lead to posttraumatic stress disorders.

Research shows that Music Therapy can be used to address the following goal areas:

Physiologic

  • Lower heart rate
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Increase circulation
  • Decrease pain perception

Neurologic (Rehabilitative and Developmental)

  • Cognitive skills
  • Communication skills
  • Motor skills

Psychosocial

  • Anxiety and stress reduction
  • Nonpharmacological management of pain and discomfort
  • Positive changes in mood and emotional state
  • Active and positive patient participation in treatment
  • Decrease length of stay

Blake’s Miracle Foundation is working with Phoenix Children’s Hospital to be able to bring this life-saving therapy to those in their care. Our foundation has already raised over $270,000 in the 14 years we have been established. We hope to do so much more in the years to come!
