The purpose of this study was to analyze the existing quantitative research evaluating the effect of sound stimuli on neurologic rehabilitation of upper and lower limbs. Seventeen studies were used in two separate analyses. The first one evaluated the effects of sound stimuli on within-subjects groups. Data were recorded before and during music intervention. The second analysis evaluated the effects of sound stimuli on between-subjects groups using an experimental/control design. Overall results indicated that music has proven to be significantly effective in rehabilitation of the limbs (d = .81 for the pre-post studies and d = 1.04 for the experimental/control studies).
