Swallowing Difficulty

Assessment

Our assessments aim to identify the causes of the swallowing problem. Only when the causes are identified can accurate diagnosis be made which will then lead to better treatment outcome. Assessments will include one or more of the following:-

  • Clinical Bedside Evaluation
  • Videofluoroscopy (X-ray of Swallowing)
  • Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing (FEES)

                                                                                          Videofluoroscopy                                                               FEES

Treatment

Treatment will be specific in targeting the underlying cause/s of the swallowing problem. There is no one ultimate treatment or solution in treating swallowing difficulties. Our treatment may include a combination of the following approaches:-

  • Computerized swallowing therapy (sEMG Biofeedback Assisted Therapy)
  • VitalStim Therapy
  • Specific swallowing exercises targeting specific swallowing problems
  • Prosthetic management
