Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation
If you are suffering from dysphagia or difficulty swallowing, our certified speech-language pathologists may incorporate Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation (NMES) into your speech therapy. NMES is done using a VitalStim® or Ampcare™ device and is a non-invasive therapy that can improve swallowing. Through electrical stimulation, this therapy aids in muscle strengthening and helps your muscles relearn the process of swallowing.
This type of therapy is applied by one of our certified therapists who will work with you on traditional swallowing exercises at the same time as the NMES therapy.
