Swallowing Therapy

Swallowing Therapy

Swallowing therapy, provided by speech-language pathologists, uses strengthening exercises, dietary modification and compensatory techniques to optimize the potential for safe swallowing and allow the patient to eat a diet that is as close to normal as possible. Every attempt is made to assist the patient with returning to safe swallowing for nutritional support while allowing a return to socialization and enjoyment. Close communication with multiple medical professionals, including gastroenterology, pulmonary, and dietary specialists, are conducted to improve patient outcomes.
