Swallowing Rehabilitation For Swallowing Disorders

Swallowing disorders such as dysphagia can result from a stroke, spinal cord injury, brain injury, neuromuscular disorders or cancer. From Modified Barrium Swallow (MBS) studies to retraining throat muscles, we provide expert, hands-on care and state-of-the-art technology to our swallowing disorder rehabilitation services.

Swallowing Rehabilitation

Our physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians (physiatrists) evaluate you and your condition and make personalized treatment recommendations. They may prescribe medications or recommend specific therapy based on your needs and goals.

Good Shepherd’s expert speech-language therapists can help strengthen the muscles used for swallowing. Speech-language therapists also help to make eating safer by working with patients to improve their posture. They also work closely with people who want to improve their ability to eat or return to eating after having a feeding tube.
