  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  Experienced pharmaceutical researcher Erol Onel, MD, has substantial experience in fields such as reproductive medicine and oncology. An alumnus of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Williams College, he serves as a vice president of Heron Therapeutics, Inc., in California. A committed philanthropist, Dr. Erol Onel donates to medical nonprofits like the American Heart Association (AHA). A recent study found in Stroke, a peer-reviewed journal of the AHA, reveals that patients who are trying to recover from strokes can benefit from horseback riding therapy, as well as rhythm-based and music treatments.
  3. 3. HORSEBACK AND MUSIC THERAPY  While many of these types of activities are often implemented as part of a recovery regimen, researchers found that this particular combination of therapies used in concert with one another provides additional benefits above and beyond single-treatment modalities. Study author Michael Nilsson, MD, PhD, indicated that people who have experienced stroke, even some time ago, can make substantial progress in their recovery via these types of therapies, which promote brain and motor activity.
