Dysphagia

Dysphagia is difficulty with swallowing food or liquids safely. When we swallow water for example, it should go down the esophagus (food pipe) into your stomach. If the swallow is impaired, it may result in the water getting displaced into the trachea (airway) which may then lead to the lungs if not expelled through coughing. This increases chances of choking and even acquiring aspiration pneumonia.

We have a variety of treatment options for people with Dysphagia. We are really excited about the Ampcare Effective Swallowing Protocol (ESP™), which uses NMES (Nueromuscular Electrical Stimulation) for optimal results.  People also refer to NMES as e-stim or VitalStim. The device delivers an electrical current through electrodes that are placed over the identified weakened areas. The current sends a signal to the nerves which help increase muscle contractions when swallowing. With this technology, the patient can not only improve accuracy of muscle contraction but help re-educate the muscles for swallowing purposes. We’ve seen great results so far with this program!
