A new study has revealed that clap treatments can help people who are suffering from dystonia to get over their pain.
Researchers at The University of Queensland and the University of Sydney found that clapping can ease people’s pain in a variety of ways.
The study, published in the journal Scientific Reports, looked at three different clap therapies.
Researchers tested whether clapping was a more effective pain reliever than pain relievers.
They also looked at the effect of clapping on anxiety and depression symptoms, and pain tolerance.
Here are the results of their study.

They found that the clap was effective for reducing anxiety and anxiety symptoms in patients with dystonic disorder, but not for reducing depression symptoms.
