A new study has recently revealed that screaming the word “ow” can actually help people deal with the pain.

Scientists at the National University of Singapore noticed that being vocal helps people tolerate pain longer as it is thought to be a distraction, the Daily Express reported.

It was also mentioned that not just the word “ow” can help but also other words like “ouch” and the Italian version “ahia”.

The researchers said all of those sounds are good for vocalizing pain because they are simple noises where the “mouth simply opens”.
