ServicesDysphagia

Dysphagia is a term used to refer to swallowing difficulties. Swallowing might seem simple, but it’s actually pretty complicated. It involves your brain, several nerves and muscles, two muscular valves, and an open esophagus all working together in tandem.

If you are having problems swallowing certain foods or liquids or eating or drinking causes you to choke or cough, we can help.

Our speech therapists are trained in techniques to address dysphagia including positioning, saliva management, and food consistency.
